The iconic Pokolbin property gets a refresh
A long standing favourite in Hunter Valley wine country, Hermitage Lodge has been welcoming visitors for more than 25 years.
Now under new ownership, the freshly renovated accommodation offers visitors even more indulgence for their next luxury Hunter Valley escape.
Hermitage Lodge’s new owners, the family owned and operated Vermilion Collective, wanted to retain the property’s signature warmth and boutique feel, while updating the look of the accommodation.
Vermilion Collective worked with local designer Julie Evans Design and PDKay Constructions to renovate the original Lodge side of the property, as well as new luxe accommodation option, The Residence.
The Residence is ideal for larger groups, like families and wedding parties, as the house is fully equipped for up to 10 adults. Located in Hermitage Lodge’s garden grounds, The Residence boasts a private pool and yard, as well as large open plan living and dining areas, making it excellent for entertaining.
Hermitage Lodge’s onsite restaurant has undergone renovation too. Now called Pescara, the Italian restaurant has already been popular with locals and visitors alike.
Expect a seasonal menu inspired by the Italian town of Pescara, and the produce of the Hunter Valley, while you dine overlooking the vines of Hermitage Lodge.
