Wiss Cottage

Located in Kalbar, Scenic Rim

A charming cottage, rich with history

Wiss Cottage is the first Australian home of German immigrant Lionel Wiss and  his young family. As newly-arrived merchants, they concentrated on building their mercantile business located next door so the cottage is modest but comfortable. Today it is fully restored while retaining the charm and simplicity of a home that is over 130 years old.

Available as accommodation

It has two bedrooms; a lounge and dining room with the original dividing wall removed; a kitchen separated from the main house by a breezeway that also houses the bathroom and toilet, and a pretty garden and outdoor area. The kitchen is functional but basic. The floors are the original raw floorboards throughout.

Comfortable, and different

Set-up as a couple’s getaway, this is an accommodation experience that is both comfortable but quite different to the way most of us live today. Try something new. Enquire today
