Where you’ll be

Mintaro, South Australia, Australia

Our early settlers cottage was constructed circa 1860s in the State heritage listed town of Mintaro. The original cottage consisted of just two rooms with a lean-to containing rudimentary bathroom and kitchen facilities and of course the "long drop dunny" down the back of the property.
There is heritage listed stable complex comprising of three tack rooms built of local slate and stone. Our cottage was originally a part of a larger property and was the entrance to the historic fire engine museum.
In the 1990s "The Lolly Shop" traded at the front of the premises hence the name of the B&B.
It is reported that the only Australian female survivor of the Titanic, Eleanor Marsden lived in this dwelling. Eleanor survived in Lifeboat 16 on that fateful day and died in Sydney in 1936.
