A stay at the Mudgee Homestead Guesthouse is about indulgence. In addition to wonderful dinners and mouth-watering afternoon teas on the verandah, guests also enjoy leisurely breakfasts in the dining room each morning. Homemade preserves and stewed fruits, fresh fruit salads, Bircher muesli, yoghurt, cereals, juices and bread greet you on arrival, followed by a superb hot breakfast highlighting our region's local produce.
Much of the fresh produce enjoyed at breakfast is sourced from our property – fruit compotes and lovely preserves made from the fruit from our orchard, fresh herbs and greens from one of our vegetable patches, beautiful free range eggs collected from our hens each morning and a table adorned with fresh flowers from the garden.
A highlight of any weekend stay at the guesthouse is the elegant 4-course chef-prepared Saturday evening dinner prepared by our accomplished chef, Janelle Bull.
Janelle was formerly Head Chef of Cleopatra's in Blackheath and chef at the Wharf Restaurant in Sydney and Silk's in Leura. Born and raised in Mudgee, Janelle has a real connection to the area and the clever flair in her meals highlight the best of Mudgee's provincial fare. Savour pre-dinner drinks and an assortment of canapés served at sunset on the verandah (or the bar downstairs in cooler months), followed by a 4-course meal of elegant fare served around our candlelit grand dining room table. Following the sumptuous meal, guests are invited into the Fireside Lounge for port, coffee and artisan chocolates.
