Appletree Cottage is an 1870's sandstone workman's cottage in the Lake Alexandra heritage precinct. Retaining original features of this early two bedroom cottage, the 2016 renovation has updated our home for 21st century living. Conveniently located two minutes walking distance to Mittagong town centre you will find cafes, restaurants, pubs and antique shops – including our very own, Hunters and Collectors Antiques.
The front door opens onto your cosy sandstock brick lounge room with two comfy sofas and a large wing back chair. The gas log fireplace and Persian rugs set the tone for luxury and romance. Complete with TV, sound system with Bluetooth/wifi connection, mood lighting, books and board games . The front bedroom comes complete with a queen size bed, linen sheets, luggage rack and original barrister’s wardrobe. The rustic second bedroom also has a queen size bed with an 1850’s farm gate bed head, antique cast iron clothes rack and Australian cedar pigeon holes for storage. There are also spare handmade quilts for cosying up on cold winter nights!
The lounge room opens onto the brand new and lavish well stocked kitchen and dining area which is also furnished with original Australian antique furniture and advertising memorabilia from the 1920’s.
Venture past the ’Hotel’ sign to open the door to your luxurious bathroom. Here you will find a deep soaking bath, separate rain shower and a smaller shower head if you prefer not to wet your hair! Underfloor heating will keep you warm. There is a skylight for great makeup application, fluffy towels and space to put your accessories.
Ideally suited for romantic getaways, pre-wedding preparation or just a relaxing weekend getaway, all your needs have been catered for. Authentically decorated with original antique furnishings, Appletree Cottage will transport you back in time without compromising modern day luxury. Sip your cappuccino from the coffee machine surrounded by 19th century sandstone walls bathed in morning sunshine and enjoying the underfloor heating. Large sliding glass doors open onto the beautiful sandstone paved courtyard surrounded by a rosemary hedge. There are plenty of places to sit in the back yard and enjoy a glass of local wine and a cheese platter! When the appletree is fruiting please help yourselves.
