Harvest Home is a majestic residence located right in the heart of Avenel. Built in 1870, Harvest Home is rich with history, having been everything from a private residence to a grocery and hardware store to then become a food, wine and events destination for the region.
An incredible ground up restoration took place from 2018 through to 2020 which saw HH elegantly renovated including 7 beautifully appointed suites. The moment you walk into HH you’ll notice the visually rich decorative details which pay tribute to the history of the building.
Our chef Martin produces stunning dishes using the freshest of ingredients from his personally grown garden at HH, in addition to sourcing fresh produce from across the local region and surrounds to provide you with a truly memorable dining experience.
Join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner and treat yourself to a celebration of our region through our food, wine, spirits and coffee. View our current menu here. (link to menu page)

Can’t say enough good things about harvest home! Stayed with a group of friends for the weekend and loved the warm hospitality from everyone as well as the delicious food and wine! We will be back for sure. Great place to stay and explore the surrounding wine regions.
What a beautiful old pub the Home Harvest is. Sam & her family are lovingly restoring the place & its a very comfortable, enjoyable place to stay. Sam has natural flare for hospitality & interior design. Her staff are delightful & nothing was too much trouble. The menu & wine list are outstanding. The use of seasonal local produce is heart warming. The dining room is magnificent, the garden & pool area instantly make you feel relaxed. Breakfast under the weeping mulberry was a joy. Our room was very comfortable & well appointed. We can’t recommend Harvest Hotel highly enough.
Beautiful venue with super friendly staff. One of my favourite hotel's in Victoria.
