It begins with a beautiful Beechworth Spring morning. The european trees in the streetscape are either in full Spring covering or showing that green tinged promise of more to come. The sun is still low in the sky giving beautiful shadows and reflections on nearby Lake Sambell. There is still the slight smell of wood smoke in the air that tells us that the cool weather has not completely gone, but it is not enough to dissuade you from a brisk morning walk through the Chinese Gardens and up to the lake.
By the time you return from your walk, the breakfast table is delightfully set with one of Judi's decorative creations as the centrepiece and the fine bone china at each place is artfully placed.The range of cereals, muesli,muffins,fruit, fresh and cooked are ready to be devoured with whatever type of milk you require, nothing is ever too much trouble. Owen appears as if by magic and enquires how you slept (as if you couldn't have a good nights sleep in the quiet luxurious rooms) and would you like coffee or tea with breakfast and again anything you want is there for you. Judi is soon there in apron, with notebook and pen at the ready, to take your order for one of Owen's sumptuous breakfasts which well and truly set you up for the day.
You return to the table with your bowl overflowing and the other guests begin to dribble out and soon conversation is flowing as you discover more about your fellow diners and often make the reacquaintance of someone who has been there before. Albertines is not the place you only visit to once! At this time of the year the wisteria winds itself along the verandah by the dining room in a blaze of mauve and the sun beckons you into the immaculate garden to take that final cup of tea or coffee before setting out for the days outing into the beautiful and historic surrounds. Above all Albertines is home, and Judi & Owen have made it that way so that every guest is made to feel special, the true hallmark of this remarkable establishment.
