We booked the Wallace Homestead for our recent trip to the Yarra Valley. The Wallace Homestead is effectively a combination of the two-bedroom Wallace House and one-bedroom Wallace Suite. As there were six of us, we booked the entire Wallace Homestead which is spaciously comfortable for all of us.
It is a very beautiful house with a rustic feel to it. The furniture feels like antique but the whole house is very well maintained, clean and comfortable. All rooms come with queen beds. The only complain was that the heating control did not seem to work very well. The house gots pretty warm in the middle of the night.
The detached bathroom has a bathtub and shower cubicle. The ensuite bathroom has shower only. Plenty of toileteries are provided (unlike most cottages we had stayed in all over Victoria) but the wooden toilet seats made you wonder if it's even possible to wash and clean them.
The country-style kitchen is fully equipped with oven, dishwasher, pots and pans, utensils and dishes. The breakfast provision is continental - jam, butter, bread, cereal, yogurt, coffee and tea - and very generous in portions. For eggs, bacons and other supplies, there is an IGA supermarket 2 minutes drive away.
Its location along the Warburton Highway means it is a slight distance away from Yarra Valley's big-name wineries. But there are several boutique wineries nearby which are really good.
We didn't attend the private tutor wine class given the poor reviews and also because they did not run the class on the Sunday we were there due to a wedding event.
The homestead is really beautiful, classic and leaves fond memories of our stay.
