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.
“From the moment you arrive, you feel welcomed and beautifully disconnected from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place was clean and the cutest and comfortable space to unwind. Waking up and sitting on the porch outside, listening to the peaceful sounds is amazing. The fireplace warms up the house and makes it very cosy. The outdoor bath when the sun has gone down is the perfect wind down. Also recommend getting the wine and platter on a arrival, the Apple sauce was amazing. There was information about the places to go around the area. I definitely will be coming back when i can, thank you so much for having me.”
Set in a scenic location, this century year old iron stone cottage provides a pleasing blend of rustic charm with modern conveniences. The home sits on 1 1/4 acres, and you are free to enjoy the space, take in the views, have a bbq on the terrace and enjoy the gardens and local bird life.

“Red Gum Retreat B&B is a rustic cottage set back from the road in Williamstown. The owner Erika was very welcoming & surprised us with bountiful provisions for a cooked breakfast & a bottle of wine! Nothing has been forgotten. The cottage is very well appointed & has everything you need to compliment a long or short stay. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had all utensils & cookware available for making a meal. Tea & coffee are provided as well as shampoo, soap, towels etc. Although we stayed in June, the cottage was kept warm with reverse cycle heating & a fire with all wood provided! The location is perfect for exploring the Barossa & surrounds. We could not have asked for a better stay, thank-you so much for your hospitality Erika!”

“Bell and Rob are two of the kindest most genuine people we have come across, we're very thankful for everything they supplied to make our stay most comfortable. The amenities are ample and very well thought out! Would like to make a special thank you to Rob for being the best bush machanic and helping us fix the van so we could get home safely. We've left feeling super refreshed from the country air, views of the rolling hills and beautiful gum trees. We will highly recommending The Old Chook Shed for a peacefull stay away. Thanks again!!!”
