Mount Lofty House was built in 1852 for Arthur Hardy. It was his summer residence, but it also became a venue for the most lavish parties, where Arthur would take great delight in hosting Adelaide’s high society. We invite you to discover the tradition, heritage, and beauty at Mount Lofty House.

In addition to the raft of activities, wineries, producers, and dining on offer here in the Adelaide Hills, Mount Lofty House boasts a range of signature experiences. These include the heritage Stables Day Spa, our two vineyards, the Heysen Trail and Botanic Gardens, our 165 year old cellar, roasting marshmallows at our campfire or at one of the twelve fireplaces onsite.nnThe newest addition to our guest offer is Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant which opened in February to critical acclaim.
