Description

Lilac Cottage has a heritage classification. It was built in the mid 1860's, at the height of the gold rush days in Beechworth, by a Mr W.U.Grigg. In the old municipal rates book he is listed as a "contractor". The house has had many different tenants over the years. Between 1878 and 1883 Rocklyn House as it was then called, was run as a school "for the children of gentlemen" where Mrs. Annie Goodman taught French, German, drawing and watercolours.

Her classes were held after normal school hours to serve as enrichment to the state education programme. Advertisements for her boarding and day school for girls can be seen in the local Ovens and Murray Advertiser of that time now held at the Burke Museum.

The four main rooms of Lilac Cottage were built from the local honey coloured granite and as was the custom at the time, the kitchen was separate. Originally this was constructed of slabs and shingles. The present brick building dates from the end of the 19th century. Sourced photos indicate that it is at least the third kitchen.

The verandah between the two buildings is now tastefully enclosed providing a delightful sunny reading area.

Excellent new bathroom and laundry facilities add to the comforts of Lilac Cottage without detracting from the character of a bygone era and the very special ambience that one finds within its walls. There are 2 bathrooms - one with a claw-foot bath and the other with disabled toilet and walk-in shower

This charming house and garden offer privacy and an outlook onto the rock face of the gorge, while the front verandah is an idyllic place to take one's breakfast or quietly sip a glass of local wine in Beechworth's golden evening light.

The cottage accommodates a maximum of 4 persons and has 2 bedrooms, both with queen beds. Please note that there is a surcharge of $40 per stay for 2 persons using 2 bedrooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lilac Cottage was beautiful Lilac Cottage was a gorgeous place to stay, the French influence was delightful. The open fires, the decore and imagine our surprise to find a piano. We listened to French cafe music and played the piano each night. What a way to re- charge our batteries. No TV required on this get away ! Thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully maintained historic cottage This is a beautiful old cottage , tastefully decorated and presented. We loved the sunny breakfast table area with a view over the garden to the gorge,the fire at night time, the beautiful sheets on the beds, the lovely autumn colours in the garden and the quiet and bird songs .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical charm We were charmed by this old property. It was clean, and was like walking back in time but with modern comforts. We were warm inside on a cold night. The garden was traditional with hiding areas for my daughters and a cute lamb next door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and comfortable This is a lovely little cottage in a lovely little town. It is perfect for two people with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are many little nice touches, from small bouquets of fresh flowers to a box of local tourist information. A visit in winter would be very comfy with two wood fires to keep guests snug. The only small suggestion I'd make is to have safer access outside for those with a physical disability such as me. There is an excellent bathroom with hand rails and a no step shower, but outside there is a gravel pathway that needs a couple of handrails as feet can slip on the stones. But please don't misunderstand, you can manage all the facilities without being too concerned about falling, and it is very well located close to the centre of town for walking. Kitchen stove is excellent, along with utensils. And, there are no creaking floorboards during the night. I'd have no hesitation going back there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great place to stay in Beechworth We really enjoyed our stay at Lilac Cottage. It is comfortable and has all the facilities you need, as well as being historic and interesting. It has a lovely garden with fruit trees and a sunny terrace in the front. It is close to the centre of town but quiet.
