Stewart House in Albury

Holidaying in Albury…who would have thought it would feel so luxurious

Long weekends away are the best! Don’t you think a weekend elsewhere feels much longer than a weekend at home? Perhaps it’s because you’re not cleaning and doing the grocery shopping. Or maybe it is because you spend so much more time together…

Either way – we love it, and try to do it as often as possible! Sometimes we choose for a city trip, and spend time in fancy restaurants and buy expensive shoes. Sometimes we go to the beach and take long walks go surfing and find shells. This time we wanted ‘nothing’, just a good book long sleep-ins and a good glass of wine.

We decided to meet friends from Melbourne in Albury this time and decided on booking the Stewart House. The house is over 100 years old and has an overload of historic features in the house. Even while this lovely building is very old, it feels very comfortable due to the renovated kitchen and bathroom. The antique furniture, classic fittings and the luxurious linen give it a real 5 star feel.

There are three bedrooms with great mattresses and pretty bedheads, The sofa’s are super comfortable and perfect for a night filled with good conversations, cheese and lots of wine. There is also an outdoor courtyard where we enjoyed breakfast with our morning coffee while the sun was shining.

You can walk to the town centre from Stewart house, but I have to admit we didn’t go far. We went to the supermarket once, stocked up on food and drinks and cooked at home. We played board games, read books, slept in and drank wine.

This house is perfect for some quality time with family and friends.
