Nestled within an almond orchard, The Papershell Lodge is on the doorstep of one of our most infamous wine regions, McLaren Vale. The Lodge is a beautiful cedar-clad self-contained studio, with the accommodation upstairs.

Wake up to birds chirping and stunning views of the Fleurieu Peninsula coastline, enjoy breakfast on the balcony with views over the canopy of the orchard right through to Pt Willunga. In late July / early August the almond orchard is in full blossom and looks spectacular! 

Guests are treated to fresh produce, almonds, freshly laid eggs, muesli, baked treats, relishes, jams, pickles – whatever the season brings.

The owners encourage guests to switch off, by taking a stroll around the property to the orchards along a creek path, the Greenhouse where seedlings are flourishing and to feed the resident chooks and sheep!
