Our luxury B&B is simply different, comprising three main accommodation rooms, each fully air conditioned and equipped with its own fireplace, spa, lounge area and concealed courtyard, making each room a private retreat.
The Lodge offers a number of recreational facilities including outdoor walking tracks, BBQ areas and a fully appointed indoor solar-heated swimming pool.
The name Strathearn Park Lodge is derived from history and the Scottish settlement of the region. Scone was originally known as the Parish of Strathearn, named for the valley (strath) of the River Earn, site of Scone, the ancient crowning place of the kings of Scotland. Today, the town of Scone is the essence of rural life and is known for its famous thoroughbred horse studs and many other horse activities such as rodeos, polo, and campdrafts, plus fine wines and rugged bushland.
Lyn and Peter welcome you to Strathearn Park Lodge. The Lodge was designed and built in the 90s as their future retirement plan.
Lyn and Peter utilised business and leisure trips, looking at private hotels and bed and breakfasts, measuring and photographing different design aspects, speaking to fellow guests and facility operators, and pasting photos into reference albums. It is the culmination of years of research and a dream come true.
We realised it was about the little things; spas looking to the outside, spa sides wide enough for a cheese platter and champagne bucket. Of course this also made it convenient to get into the spa rather than struggling with those elevated sides you often encounter. The closed off verandahs for each room, while it made the builder shudder, solved the problem of people walking past your room and the lack of privacy you often experience elsewhere. It also allows you to leave your curtains open to wake up to a fresh country morning.
We have a background in the hospitality industry, but our aim was always to create a place where people could come and totally relax in the shortest time possible, and that is probably the most common comment we get. The kilometre-long country driveway, arrival at the homestead, and the walk into the spacious rooms create a feeling of relaxation that is just “ heaven.”
All the gardens were designed and created by us and have matured into pleasant spaces for you to enjoy.
On balance, when people visit for business in the region they say it gives them the room to work and relax, and they often get more done here than at their office.
We had managers operating the Lodge until 2009 but have since that time operated it in our semi-retirement.
What would we do differently? “We should have semi-retired earlier!” We hope when you stay with us you will appreciate our research and the purposeful design for relaxation, peace and tranquility.
