Built late 1860's and traded as a pub from 1871 till 1953. My family purchased the building in 1955 and converted it to a family home which remains almost unaltered to this day, despite the renovations. Full of character and old world charm, it remains a local icon in the area. Original features includes the cosy open fire in the lounge room, high ceilings and the brick lined cellar with original sandstone bricks..

The space

Ten minutes by car to Grafton on a sealed road, where you will find all amenities, and 5 minutes across the ferry to the Pacific Highway at Ulmarra. The home is in a small village setting, but has privacy and no immediate neighbours. Relax on the back verandah overlooking the pleasant rural outlook or sit under the shady tree in the back yard and enjoy the gentle afternoon breeze. Very peaceful at night in a double brass bed (in keeping with the good ole days) for a good nights sleep, away from the hustle and bustle of town. Continental breakfast- cereals, toast, orange juice, yoghurt, tea and coffee included, and a variety of evening meals can be obtained from local eateries/pubs 10 minutes away in Grafton or Lawrence. Two bathrooms available, so guests have their own bathroom, although its not an ensuite. Guests also have use of their own lounge with TV.

Tea and coffee available all day, but no meals apart from continental breakfast.

I will be available to help with any requests.

This is a great place to stay. Just out of Grafton but close to everything. Well set up for a brief stopover or a longer visit.

The pub is out of town, fine if you have a car. Charmaine is very friendly, always around ready with advice about the local area. Breakfast was provided.

Response from Charmaine:
Hello Jane, Thank you for your feed back, however I'm not sure what was meant about the "size of home."...if this shows as inaccurate in my profile, then I may need to correct it. I clearly show a photo of the home and states in the profile the guest has a private bedroom with double bed, own bathroom, own tv lounge, use of kitchen for tea and coffee all day. They are also free to use the back verandah and another small lounge area, and also free to share the open fire in the main lounge. So I'm not sure if you meant the home was depicted as being smaller or larger than described. And as for being out of town, I do state it is 10 minutes from town, as I presume guests would know I'm in a rural area. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Cheers, charmaine.

Charmaine is the perfect hostess who looks after a charming old listed pub from years gone by, that itself is full of charm . She welcomed my wife and I with open arms and we left with those same arms wrapped around each other. We certainly will drop by when next we're in the area.
