How would you like to own and manage a successful business that gives you the freedom to:
- Head to the beach on Friday afternoon for a weekend of fishing and relaxation and return on Monday morning.
- Enjoy riding the Riesling Trail or playing golf every afternoon
- Take a holiday or a cruise and leave the business ticking along nicely, earning an income and at minimal expense.

The Riesling Trail & Clare Valley Cottages is a successful business and most importantly a Lifestyle choice.
Yvonne often refers to Peter as being on permanent annual leave!

The current owners have nurtured and grown this highly respected and well known business since taking ownership in 2006. The owners now have a new adventure awaiting and are offering this beautifully presented property and business for sale.

The Riesling Trail & Clare Valley Cottages are now made up of seven quaint self-contained cottages set unobtrusively on three and a half acres of beautiful natural bush land. The seven cottages enjoy a fabulous location with a lovely native bush land setting and views, on the outskirts of the gorgeous Clare Township. Also included is a fully renovated two storey manager's residence (one of the original Clare Valley Cottages) which provides scope for an on-site manager or an exceptional 5 star B&B accommodation facility.

The vendors have successfully promoted the Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the beautiful Clare Valley as an appealing destination for couples looking for romantic getaway experiences as well as promoting the accommodation as ideal for couples and groups travelling together.

The business has continued to go from strength to strength as evidenced by winning silver medals in both 2011and 2013 in the prestigious SA Tourism Awards for Standard Accommodation.

There has been significant financial investment in improving the business with impressive results. Extensive refurbishments to all 7 cottages - fixtures, fittings, furniture, entertainment systems, climate control units, appliances etc were all upgraded to provide their clientele with premier Bed & Breakfast accommodation.

The vendors have strategically developed a marketing plan which has targeted a wide variety of groups. This has resulted in the exceptional weekend occupancy rate being 98% for the past 3 years.

The business has built up a strong repeat clientele base through excellent service. Testimony to the quality service provided at the Riesling Trail and Clare Valley Cottages the business is rated Number 1 (of 13) on Trip Adviser for Specialty Lodgings in Clare and has been for many months.

The business was awarded a Silver Medal in the 2011 & 2013 South Australian Tourism Industry Council Awards in the Standard Accommodation Category. The manager's residence won the HIA Building Award in 2013 for renovation project $200,000 up to $350,000.

The seven cottages (Rose, Violet, Daisy, Iris and Lily, Donnybrook & Hutt River) are all beautifully appointed. The five Clare Valley Cottages are presented with purposely designed dcor to match the name of the cottage, including handmade and personally designed Queen sized bed quilts. The cottages have all benefited from thorough, extensive upgrading under the current owners' direction. The interior of the 7 cottages have all undergone a complete makeoverfixtures, fittings, climate control units, plasma TV's, furniture, appliances and even crockery have all been replaced. The cottages are able to cater for a broad range of clients - from couples to large groups.

The owners aim to consistently provide a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience to all patrons through a friendly professional service, providing quality hygienic accommodation and constantly upgrading the cottages to ensure a truly unique five star experience at a moderate price. They have a simply philosophy: Our aim is to provide the budget traveler with a unique and individual personalised 5 star experience at a price that they can afford. We strive for excellence and pride ourselves on delighting our guests with a little piece of paradise.

There is a completely separate office facility which again would allow the option of the new purchaser to operate the mangers residence as a B&B facility and live away from the site.
