About Chris Rieger
James Rose is the culmination of my passion for stylish, understated interiors and my husband’s extraordinary ability to restore a building back to its former glory. Together we create beautiful spaces that you get to enjoy. When you stay with us you will see that nothing is uniform. Every living area has been lovingly designed to ensure your comfort. Unique pieces can be found throughout the rooms at each of our properties, giving them a level of warmth and comfort that you do not get in a hotel room. Step outside and the building that you are staying in is as unique as the rooms inside it. Stop for a minute and imagine the stories that these charming and exceptional buildings could tell you. That is where we are different. We want where you stay to be as special as what you do, when you get the opportunity to get away. We welcome you to James Rose Unique Accommodation.
Chris Rieger purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Chris Rieger chose Berrima
I have always loved the Southern Highlands, my husband and I love to prepare homes that we can enjoy also on weekends. We find this property so easy to make ambient with candles, we have left it fairly raw, it is not modern, we have improved on the elements that make this property special.
What makes this Cottage unique
Styled property, beautiful comfy velvet down sofa to sit in front of an open fire, the garden has rural outlook over the valley and we are 2 mins walk from town. There are so many interesting things about Berrima. It is the home of many well known musicians and not uncommon to find a kangaroo or wombat foraging around in the garden.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
The perfect place for four weary mums to recharge away from the kids. Lovely cosy house just minutes stroll from cafes and shopping but quiet and peaceful. Beautifully furnished with everything you could need.
Great stay in a great property
We had a comfortable and restful stay at this house. It is convenient to Bendooley Estate and is close to the middle of Berrima with its pretty shopping strip. The fireplace and soft furnishings in the bedrooms make it cozy!
Home away from home
Enjoyed our stay as it was cozy, relaxing and the extra personal touches made by the owner through excellent communication made our weekend away so special. Highly recommend to everyone and definitely book again. Pure luxury.
thank you for your reviewing us favourably, we look forward to your returning visit again one day. Sarah x
Enjoyed our girls weekend away in the lovely Characters Cottage Berrima.
Great location, close to town and a short drive to Bowral and Mittagong.
Lovely open fire to the cold nights and also a gas heater for instant heat.
Hi Sharon thank you for leaving us a favourable review, we hope you come back to continue your exploration of the southern highlands soon. Thanks again, sarah
Accommodation in Berrima for wedding @ Bendooleys
We enjoyed our stay at Character Cottage but the bathroom definitely a miss. Very small, toilet in bathroom. We had five people staying. Would be fine for a couple.
And 1 3/4 mirror (not sufficient)
Thank you for your review... I'm glad you enjoyed yourself it is such a beautiful place for a wedding, we certainly try and describe the property accurately right down to the bathroom which is yet to be renovated, and we were in such regular contact too.. safe travels.
Fantastic Heritage cottage
Very comfortable and convenient place to stay to check out the Hawkesbury
We are 2 mins drive to beautiful Bendooley Winery, 10 mins drive to Bowral, Mittagong, Mossvale.
Too many amazing restuarants and wineries within minutes to mention. We have owned property 6 years and still have more to discover.
