Tara House Bairnsdale is a gracious Victorian home built in 1890 close to the Gippsland Lakes and Alpine High Country. The Master Suite is a Victorian themed private room with Queen bed for 2 people, bathroom with bath, shared dining room and lounge.
Tara House is an historic property, one of Bairnsdale's finest, now 126 years old. It would be appreciated if guests could respect the age of the property and understand that the facilities and fabric of the building etc. reflect the 1880's era in which it was built. A history of the property is available for interest. Please help us preserve Tara House as a special example of a Victorian Country property and established garden. We hope you love the experience.
Note there is NO SMOKING inside any of the rooms at Tara House.
Guests are welcome to chill drinks and food in the Dining Room fridge, although it should be noted that the fridge is small. Please ask if you need to chill other items.
