Wadmore Honey Moon Suite

In the early 1900s Annesley passed to the Wadmore sisters who were well known for their enterprising spirit. The Wadmore sisters quickly turned the mansion into a guesthouse and 'Annesley House' became an instant hit with holiday makers in the Western District of Victoria. The main bedroom of the house has been remodelled into their "Honeymoon Suite". The owners thought it was only fitting that it bears the name of these enterprising sisters.
