The Bush meets Lake St Clair
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

The story of Pumphouse Point starts loooooooong ago (with maybe even more Os). In fact, according to the staff, the real story starts 20,000 years ago, when Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair, was born on the island of Tasmania. That’s how much of a feature the scenery is for the lakeside hotel.

Historical Homestead
REPORTER: Katie David Bush

What started out as a weekend home away from the hustle of NYC, has turned into a stunningly renovated modern retreat ready for your romantic nuptials or primed to accommodate your big family venture, and to think just over 14 years ago, this historic homestead would’ve appeared to be in desperate need of a bulldozer. According to Kate, the owner of Handsome Hollow when her and her husband Huck saw the homestead for the first time, it had ceiling fans and spray paint adorned the walls. These days, it’s reno’d interiors boast gallery walls, fine vintage furniture, and enough embellished detailing to make even the most crate and barrel enthused blush.

Greenhouse Garden Party
Vineyards, Orchards, Gardens, oh my!
REPORTER: Cortnie Fausner

Inspired by the mythical gardens of Babylon, this farm hotel spanning eight acres, would make even Adam and Eve feel right at home. With over 300 plants, the fruit and vegetables are harvested for guests to munch on in the restaurant (there will be absolutely no need to count calories here.) You will find yourself meandering around the farm and discovering berries, bees, ducks, chickens, a prickly pear maze, a HUMAN size bird nest and even gravity fed waterways. Yep, the gardens are watered the same way they would have been 300 years ago. There is no need to reinvent the wheel right?!
