About Amelia’s Bed and Breakfast
Our cottage was built circa 1876 of ironstone and limestone by stonemason Jonathan Lake. We named the cottage after his daughter, Joyce Amelia.
The cottage was somewhat rundown when we purchased it in 2005, and we did most of the improvements ourselves with TLC, largely calling on Tim’s skills as a carpenter, cabinet maker and general handyman.
The original cottage has a rear extension, with a thoroughly-modern kitchen, large indoor entertaining area and an outdoor barbecue dining area in a fragrant garden.
Huge overall, it has two bedrooms, making it suitable for one or two couples.
Amelias is not suitable for children or pets.
Gift certificates are available should you wish to spoil loved ones.
While we have modern luxuries such as a large two-person spa, our improvements have an historic feel – rose cornices and ceiling roses, brass light switches and taps, and chandeliers.
Even the plants we have chosen for the gardens are old-style, including standard and miniature roses, miniature box and pansies.
In the name of water conservation, our lawns are artificial, even though we have two rainwater tanks which hold a combined 24,000 litres plumbed to all parts of the cottage.
We are excited and very proud to announce that we have retained our 4.5* rating and have been listed in the top 5 bed and breakfasts in South Australia!!
Amelia’s has been given the T-Qual tick for quality, service and professionalism throughout the Tourism Industry.
