Memories of Marnie Riddell’s stewed stone fruit and berries followed by her baked scrambled eggs wrapped in smoked salmon and served on a muffin linger long after you have departed her beautiful historic accommodation in Queenscliff. The two-storey French Renaissance–style building dates from the 1880s, with spectacular views from the rooftop tower. There are seven chic bedrooms, all individually furnished with lashings of good taste, Asian-style furniture alongside antiques, objets d’art that have been collected over 30 years and modern artwork by Marnie herself. Next door is a 100-year-old three-bedroom cottage set in a beautiful garden full of century-old fruit trees, ideal for families.
