One of the earliest buildings in the High Country, this imposing Italianate manor house was built by the Highett family from Dorset in England. It took 20 years to complete and was finished in 1896, with uninterrupted views across to Mount Buller, Mount Timbertop, Mount Sterling and the Bluff. Dame Nellie Melba used to sing duets in the ballroom, which is now a formal dining room. Today there are six queen bedrooms with ensuites and reverse-cycle air-conditioning for year-round comfort, one party room that is ideal for a large family or group, and five motel-style units. The pick is the Tower Suite with four-poster bed, sitting room and spa bath.
