Adelong is in one of the prettiest regions of Australia and perfectly placed for travel from or between both Sydney and Melbourne. A cruise up the Hume from Melbourne, stopping for lunch in Beechworth and there you are Beaufort House before you know it. Impressive and dripping with architectural features on the outside, it's a hint of what is to come when you step inside. The atmosphere is amazing yet so very welcoming and comfortable and a lot to take in. I was greeted by Cynthia, who is a delight and passionate about Adelong and the surrounding area. Take Cynthia's advice on things to do in the area. From easy drives, stopping at hidden forest walks, wineries and cafes along the way to drives to the better-known tourist destinations, Cynthia is a font of knowledge. The accommodation is exceptional. Sleep in the comfiest beds amongst antiques from Australia and Europe, each bedroom beautifully decorated with a different theme. I loved the country-house touches that made me feel like a welcome house guest, like the decanter of port and crystal glasses with chocolate chip cookies in the bedroom. Head downstairs to the restaurant for the yummiest coffee and cakes anytime of day and scrumptious lunch and dinner menus. Nothing pretentious but a little different from the norm and using fresh local produce all beautifully prepared. As if that isn't enough, there is the wine bar, too! There was absolutely nothing amiss at Beaufort House. Cynthia and Ric have set the Boutique Hotel standard very high indeed and I recommend Beaufort House without hesitation.
