The Rutherglen Convent

50-74 High Street Rutherglen 3685

The Rutherglen Convent offers unique group accommodation in a thoughtfully-restored building that was once a boarding house, school and convent. Gracious, steeped in history and built circa 1927, the property is located in the heart of the Rutherglen wine-making district. Positioned within 550 metres from Main Street you will be spoilt for choice with cafes, bakeries, wine bars and pubs all within walking distance.

With its gothic-inspired architecture and old-world charm, the building is spread over two expansive levels with the ground floor featuring a formal entry, kitchen, laundry and 8 main rooms with soaring ornate ceilings, fireplaces (disused) and leadlight windows. The upper level accessed by two timber staircases offers 11 bedrooms, an original boarding house bathroom with 22 basins, four private bathrooms and access to the elevated balconies offering 360-degree views of the surrounds.

The ground floor also features an outdoor grassed area with gardens and rock seating surrounding a fire pit, perfect for those cooler nights.
