Herrmann's Cottage is a classic Australian miner's cottage (circa 1860) set on over half an acre of gardens. It is fully self-contained and completely private. The cottage has recently been carefully redecorated throughout—retaining all the character but with the modern comforts. It features a traditional front verandah with slate paving; inside there are the original timber dado panels and Baltic pine floors. There is a sitting room with a wood fire, three bedrooms, an updated bathroom with an original 'claw-foot bath' and a brick paved courtyard with an outdoor table setting and BBQ.

At Herrmann's Cottage you have exclusive use of the fully self-contained cottage. It's set on over ½ acre of gardens so you get lots of peace and privacy.

  • The cottage has three bedrooms, two doubles and a single (all linen, towels etc are provided).
  • We also provide some provisions to get you started. Eg tea, coffee, milk, bread, cereal, and perhaps some eggs, juice, a bottle of wine and maybe some chocolates!
  • The sitting room has a wood heater, a TV, DVD and CD player (and a small selection of DVDs and CDs).
  • The kitchen has an electric cook-top stove and bench-top oven, refrigerator with freezer, a microwave and essential kitchen equipment. The adjoining dining area seats 4 to 6 people. And there's an outdoor brick paved courtyard with a table setting and BBQ.
  • The updated bathroom has an original full size claw-foot bath. And there's a separate toilet (inside). Bath towels and essential toiletries are provided.
  • The laundry facilities include a front-loading washing machine, dryer, outside clothes line and an iron and full-size ironing board.
  • There's a handy carport and other easily accessible on-site car parking.
  • The telephone service is available for use by guests. But for outgoing calls, is limited to local calls only.

Come and relax in the peace and tranquillity of Herrmann's Cottage and enjoy the experience of historic Maldon!


History - Herrmann Blum acquired this half acre allotment in the Parish of Maldon by Crown Grant in 1859. He established "a three-roomed weatherboard house with iron roof, two stables and outhouses". Sometime later an extension was added expanding the original cottage from one to three bedrooms.

Dear Herrmann, your house is lovely. It is particularly good for drinking mulled wine by the fire. Maldon is lovely. I especially loved jumping in puddles
