          Hello, I wanted to inquire about availability to stay over Easter next yēar? My partner and I have a wedding in Penola and are looking for something closeby and have been recommended to stay here by a friend who owns a winery in Penola. Could you please let me know availability from 14-16 April and the details? Happy to have a chat over the phone if that's easier? Look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Alli
