As mentioned in the PAD for yesterday we had a weekend getaway to this place, which is a working winery with a bed and breakfast sideline. Actually "B&B" doesn't do it justice. There are two bedrooms available, both luxuriously appointed and each with a large bathroom. One has a private courtyard and balcony, while the other (ours) is on this side of the building and overlooks the vineyard and river located behind me. Not that you could see much of either in the early morning fog which is evident here, and would have been even more so had I not whacked on a Levels adjustment layer to squeeze the contrast a little. But it's a very tranquil view when visible.
The bedrooms lead on to a high-ceilinged, tastefully furnished communal living room with a slow combustion wood fire for when the weather is cold. All of these are located down at the far end in this shot. Unfortunately the other couple (a young couple from Britain doing doctorate research at the University of Western Sydney) beat us to the only board game that both of us knew how to play (Backgammon) so while we waited for dinner we just reclined on the leather couches, read some of the tourist material and listened to the music system.
Somewhere around the middle of the building is the kitchen/ dining area.
The winery has a long and varied history to it, which I would recount here if I was certain that I accurately remembered all of it. The B&B is run by a husband and wife team with some help from their son, though the husband appears to handle all of the "front of house" work. The wife is an excellent cook and none of us had any complaints about either the dinner or the breakfast the following morning.
Ebenezer (and the Hawkesbury region generally) is not a place to get your heart racing, but if you want some down time you can do far worse than here. Unfortunately most of my viewers are from off shore and that will never be an option for them. But, you know, in theory I mean.
