STAY AT THE RESIDENCE
Built in 1877 to exacting standards, The Residence has stood proud in the center of Bendigo for over 140 years. Originally the Deanery for the neighbouring school hall and referred to as ‘The Masters Residence’, 12 MacKenzie Street is a two storey red brick gothic revival style family home.
Accommodating groups of 10–12 persons we ensure your comfort is our top priority. Guests are personally greeted on arrival by our experienced Property Manager who has an extensive knowledge of the Bendigo area and can help you decide how and where to spend your time in town!
When you stay at ‘The Residence’, you have the run of the entire house; with your option of access to 5 bedrooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen, landscaped gardens, rumpus room and much more!
For those looking for a get-away weekend with family or friends, The Residence is all about comfort and convenience. Step out the door, cross the road and find yourself at Bendigo's famed art gallery. With cafes, coffee shops and restaurants just outside, a full service entertainer's kitchen or an outside webber BBQ, the choices for dinner or lunch are boundless. Kids can entertain themselves in the rumpus room, far away from where the adults are relaxing in the formal lounge, sun-room or around the firepit. For those in town for business, there is wi-fi throughout but also a separate study with desk and printer.
