Myrtleford is the undiscovered gem of the Alpine Valley. Conveniently close to the bustling tourist destinations of Bright and Beechworth, yet totally serene and unspoiled.
Rothery House is circled by a classic Australian veranda and shaded by a magnificent old Lynden tree.
It is right in the centre of the town only metres from shops, local pubs and restaurants.
Rothery House has been perfectly restored with great attention to historic detail, with a few thoughtful modern upgrades to give you all the comfort of home, and more.
Lounge – the living area is spacious, yet oh so cosy. Who doesn’t love an open fire, perhaps with a glass of local wine?
Kitchen – Modern with rustic wooden benchtops, European wood cabinetry, professional series kitchen appliances. Includes dishwasher, electric kettle and all the cookware necessary to make a gourmet meal.
Bathrooms – Two showers and toilets, the main bathroom including a very large shower and luxurious bathtub.
Bedrooms – Four bedrooms are tucked away at the back of the house. Each bed has a high quality double cushion covered mattresses, all fitted with electric blankets, and pristine white linen. You honestly won’t want to leave your bed.

About the region
In the temperate months this region is made for cycling, with a long winding rail trail stretching all the way from Beechworth, and at least five fantastic wineries within cycling distance.
In the winter it is the perfect base camp for a day trip to the neighbouring ski resort Mount Hotham.
The Ovens river winds through this region and opens up in lovely spots right in the town. You could easily spend a day here, swimming, wading and fishing in the crystal clear mountain water.
Lake Buffalo is five minutes outside of Myrtleford. Load up the car, bring the family, and spend the day water skiing, jet skiing, or just basking on the banks.
Travelling on foot or by bicycle is the best way to explore Myrtleford and its surrounds. Many of the region’s best wineries are within cycling distance.
Otherwise everything you could possibly want to see can be accessed by driving a short distance.
