A cosy, curated cottage with a rustic vibe, Ode to the Orchard is surrounded by the Adelaide Hills’ finest wineries and sits high on 16 acres. It is one of the original stone homes of the area and enjoys stunning views of picturesque Lenswood. There is no better place to relax: soak in the gorgeous claw-foot bath looking out to the stars, enjoy that glass of local red by the fire, or try out our apple crumble recipe in the vintage wood-fired Aga.
“What a stunning place to relax and unwind! Romany has thought of everything! She is a fantastic host and very accommodating to your needs. All the thoughtful touches were fantastic. The cottage was spottless and very cosy. We cooked in the old Aga and roasted marshmallows in the beautiful woodfire. We woke up to kangaroos, rabbits and amazing views. The out door bath a nighy is a must! We highly recommend the Ode to the Orchid and we cannot wait to come back one day. All the best Romany :-)”

The unit is self contained isolated from the main residents with only Bernard & Sue on the property. You will enjoy over 80 acres of free space filled with fresh county air, great walks along the creek down to the Dawesley ruins while meeting the friendly alpacas. "Great place to escape the crazy 2020 year"
“Loveley alpaca farm just outside of Nairne. Less than 7km from Mt Barker, yet feels quite secluded and peaceful. Nairne had some lovely little shops, cafe's etc. Make sure you visit Marketplace in Littlehampton, if your looking for some local produce, baked goods, cheeses, preserves and Adelaide Hills flowers. Sue and Bernard were lovely hosts and made me feel very welcome. I was allowed to explore the property in my own time. Bernard was nice enough to let me know to go meet alpacas before forecasted rain arrived. Nice touches, such as vase full of lovely red roses from their gorgeous garden on table upon arrival, fridge full of cooked breakfast ingredients, Nippys OJ, milk and some strawberries & camembert to have with bottle of Howards wine. (Howards Vineyard just down the road) Bread, and continental brekkie supplies in pantry. Accompanying condiments were all supplied. Nespresso pod machine with pods and even a bag of Fruchocs. You would want for nothing if you wanted to stay put. Plenty to explore, and if you've had enough of alpacas, walk along the creek, running between the female & male alpacas. Looking forward to returning in October, when its greener and creek is flowing. Highly recommend this AirB&B if you love animals, nature & of course alpacas. Oh there are also a few horses and a Persian farm cat named Greg, who loves visitors.🦙🐎🐈”

“Our stay in Barry and Liz’s was more than excellent! They have a lovely house with all you need to make you feel at home. The room was spacious and the bed super comfy. They are very friendly people, and even though we just stayed for one night we shared some nice conversations. If we are back in the area we will stay with them for sure! Again, thank you so much for your hospitality!!”
