About The Retreat

The Old Laundry is a spacious, private suite consisting of a bedroom, bathroom with shower, it’s own private entrance and parking.

This luxury accommodation for two is perfect for those seeking comfort and seclusion in a shady more woodland setting on the property.

Many years ago this fully refurbished treasure was indeed the farm laundry. Now the only suggestion of a laundry are the vintage French laundry baskets, antique washboard and ironing board.

Your every comfort has been considered from the huge French style king bed, LCD TV with built in DVD, movie library, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso Coffee machine, reverse cycle air conditioning and modern gas barbecue.

The suite has a large two person shower and heated floor. Pamper yourself with the organic Australian toiletries provided for you and wrap yourself in Sheridan soft pile white towels.

Fall asleep in luxury between 1000 thread count Sheridan cotton sheets watching the flames flicker in your enclosed wood burner.

C’est la vie – This is the Life!

About The Retreat

Vineyard Owners Cottage is a completely separate and romantic cottage, consisting of two bedrooms, one with king and the other with a queen bed.

It has one large shared bathroom, with both a Victorian style bath, and a large walk in double shower, as well as a separate cloakroom and WC.

This romantic accommodation for either one or two couples, is idyllic for those seeking a nostalgic and peaceful retreat, and has a lounge and dining table for up to 4 people, with views directly down the vineyard.

The history of the cottage was that it used to be the owners cottage, when the property was a working Rose and Herb Farm.

It still has the aura of a more simple and wholesome life of days gone by .

Nevertheless, it has every comfort and convenience of modern day living from an LCD TV with built in DVD player, movie library, Bose iPod dock, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso Coffee machine, reverse cycle air-conditioning/heating  and modern gas barbecue.

The king bedroom has a view directly down the vineyard for you to wake up to in the morning. The queen bedroom has a garden view to soothe you to sleep.

The shared bathroom has a double sink configuration, and a heated floor for the ultimate luxury. Pamper yourself with the organic Australian toiletries provided, and wrap yourself in Sheridan soft pile white towels.

Fall asleep in ultimate comfort, between 1000 thread count Sheridan cotton sheets, and wake up to the sound of brightly coloured Rosellas and Lorikeets that also have found a peaceful home at Tussie Mussie Vineyard Retreat.

Prepare your meals in the cottage kitchen, or on the gas barbecue, and enjoy the pleasure of dining on your terrace – truly dining with a view !

The cottage offers a nostalgic and romantic experience that just for a moment removes you from the bustle of life, and treats you to the best of Mornington Peninsula Country Style.

About The Retreat

The Vineyard Lodge is luxurious and spacious, consisting of four king bedrooms, each with their own bathroom suite, private entrance and terrace.

As you travel down the long, promising drive to the property, you find the Vineyard Lodge entrance flanked by four grand pencil pines and illuminated water feature.

A majestic double door opens up to an entrance wall of huge canvas pictures of the Tussie Mussie roses. It’s a breathtaking welcome to your Vineyard Lodge.

The next room you enter, is the lounge of the lodge with high ceilings and a stunning view of the terrace and valley beyond.

The Vineyard Lodge lounge is furnished with provencal style, unbleached linen and antique leather armchairs and sofa.

In the centre is a large coffee table made locally from old wood reclaimed from the Peninsula pier.

This large, light space makes a comfortable and convivial space for you and your guests to relax and enjoy.

It has a reverse cycle air conditioning unit, a large enclosed wood fire, high quality Geneva music system including iPod dock, and an impressive French farmhouse dining table that comfortably seats 8 in elegant antique leather dining chairs.

The perfect place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast whilst looking down the vineyard through plantation shutters.

The floor to ceiling wood wall is a feature of the room and compliments this traditional, quality mud brick construction. It emanates the faint smell of redgum. There is a natural aromatherapy everywhere in the quiet air of Tussie Mussie.

A fantastic separate media and movie room with a  Pioneer LCD TV and DVD, Bose surround sound system, “block out” floor to ceiling silk curtains and several comfy “gold class” recliners to complete your experience. Enjoy a “Big Night In” without going out!

The Vineyard Lodge has 4 stunning suites, all with their own lounging area,  and two even have their own wood burning fires for extra warmth in winter.

One of the suites The Hilligdon Suite has a separate lounge room, complete with “sink in” comfy linen lounge suite and ottoman. It’s perfect for curling up and watching the  TV with DVD and working your way through the movie library.

There’s even a bar fridge to keep the bubbles cold!

The unique items collected by the owners from antique sheds on the Mornington Peninsula form a stylish and intriguing environment.

Combined with the texture of the mud brick walls and wood fires there is a warmth and welcoming reassurance about Tussie Mussie that guarantees instant relaxation.

All the beds are dressed in luxury Sheridan 1000 thread count cotton sheets and soft towels.

Enjoy a beautiful double storm shower or bath using the organic Australian toiletries supplied .

Three of the suites have baths including The Hillingdon Suite that has a corner spa bath , and all of the bathrooms have a heated floor to complete the pampered experience .

The large king beds offer you a wonderful night sleep , and three can even be split into singles if required .

All the suites have their own terraces and separate entrances making The Vineyard Lodge both convivial for a large group of friends and family, yet enabling each guest to enjoy the privacy of their own suite

The stunning tee tree archways covered in roses; the secret pathways flanked with ferns and agapanthus, and the little hidden bird boxes amongst the camellia bushes make Tussie Mussie truly an enchanted garden.

The Vineyard Lodge offers a fully equipped kitchen with quality appliances (Fisher & Paykel and Blanco) and baking/ cooking utensils that will delight the most committed cooks.

Take the Maggie Beer cookbook off the shelf and it may be the inspiration for your vineyard feast on The Long Table, or your picnic down at the dam.

There is a separate laundry for guests’ use, with washer, dryer, ironing board and iron.

There is also a powder room off The Vineyard Lodge entrance hallway.

Questions You May Have

Can we stay for just one night?
Because we are a self-catering private rental property, and not a hotel, we cannot offer a one night rental. Sorry! We have a two night minimum rental throughout the year, except for public holiday weekends when a three night minimum rental is required.

Can you offer early check in and late check out?
If we can, we will always be flexible. However we cannot guarantee it, or indeed offer it until 24 hours before your arrival at the property. In peak holiday season, sorry it is not generally possible.

Do you allow weddings?
We are not a wedding venue , we are a private residence for accommodation rental. We therefore welcome wedding groups requiring rental accommodation for their weekend on the Peninsula. We will occasionally allow small celebrations, but strictly no marquees / discos / bands etc. Permission is also predicated on very limited guest numbers and other conditions. Please contact us.

Do you have a daily cleaning / laundry service?
As we are a private rental house and not a hotel we don’t offer a daily cleaning and laundry service. This can be arranged and costed separately if required

Do you have a restaurant on site?
No we don’t have a restaurant on site, and don’t offer cooked meals . The property is a self-catering rental house. However we can recommend and book excellent local restaurants , of which there are many!

Is the wood fired pizza oven available to everyone to use? Can you book it?
Yes the pizza oven is available for everyone, and it’s on a “first come, first served ” basis.We supply instructions, but no dough! If you would like and expert to make pizzas for your group we can connect you with a pizza chef who works regularly at the property.

Is the vineyard kitchen and dining room included in my stay rate?
No this facility is available by separate agreement, and only really required if you are a large group renting the property exclusively, or employing a private chef / caterer. Please ask us to quote for you.

Do you have a chef on site?
No. Because we are a self catering private residence not a hotel we don’t have a chef on site , or offer meals. However if you wish to employ someone to cook for you , we can connect you with excellent chefs who have worked regularly at the property. They will respond directly to your brief and budget, and your arrangement for food (and wine) is directly with them.
