Take a peek inside Jenkins Street Guest House
Jenkins Street Guest House is the country bed and breakfast establishment that you have been searching for.
Located in a converted 1938 Bank of New South Wales building, half way between Sydney and Brisbane in the peaceful, rural town of Nundle, the guest house has the handsome, restrained elegance of the Art Deco period, softened with luxurious attention to detail in bed linen, Australian toiletries, and thoughtful gestures such as books to share, and jugs of rainwater and glass tumblers.
Jenkins Street Guest House has a place in the hearts of guests from when it operated as a restaurant and accommodation for 12 years, before being used as a private home for a decade. Many guests are planning to return, and relive special memories of family gatherings now that it has reopened.
Jenkins Street Guest House’s setting, in the picturesque Peel Valley, surrounded by 1200m mountains that are part of Australia’s Great Dividing Range, creates a comforting feeling of seclusion and retreat from the outside world.
Waking up to the golden morning light and bird song is a balm for the busyness intruding every day life in metropolitan and regional cities.
The sense of space with vistas of grazing land, eucalypts, cattle and horses, signals guests to unwind, connect, and enjoy each other’s company.
Accommodation includes six bedrooms with queen-size beds, three with ensuite bathrooms, and three with shared bathroom facilities. One of the ensuite bathrooms features original 1930s bathroom tiles and fittings, while new bathrooms have contemporary limestone and polished concrete tiles.
