Venue Features
The Scene:
We are a family owned and run business with many years of history and experience in the construction and hospitality industries. The restoration work has been a huge undertaking over several years but our goal is to provide the right balance of comfort, convenience and charm in an environment suitable for adults to relax, play and recharge. 

The restoration work has been undertaken in a manner to keep the character of the building intact with high walls, windows and floors. It contains a variety of antique fittings and fixtures as well as the inclusion of memorabilia of early years. The atmosphere is warm and inviting with plenty of space to entertain a group or retreat to an intimate setting. We want to see St Josephs Guesthouse become a much loved favourite retreat for people eager to savour the delights of healthy country living.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

St. Joseph's Guesthouse is like an old dream that stays with you. An intimate Australian chapel, wonderfully strengthened by history and dynamically surrounded by a grassy landscape, the forest gem enthralls couples and guests alike. It practically sings from the hilltop. Sneakily tucked in the Lower MacDonald Valley, the restored five-bedroom family-owned stone getaway invites you with a charm that seems to transcend centuries, a vibrant relic that welcomes the art of conversation over grand feast. But there’s a plunge pool and deck with a barbecue, so imagine Game of Thrones with a bed and breakfast twist.
