Elizabeth retired from her family business in Wellington (Mischa Wine Estate) to establish Eventide Lodge on the Bitou river. Her dream of being close to the beach and still maintaining a tranquil farm lifestyle came true. Her passion is now to share her dream with you along with her 6 dogs (5 of them rescues). For more about the Lodge please browse the Rooms, Facilities and Attractions pages.


Elizabeth is a genuine and caring host who does nothing better than making you feel part of the family. It is a real family affair so be ready for stories about...


...The wine estate Wellington (more info here);

...The success stories of John Barns (Elizabeth's late husband and master husband, father and farmer)

...Andrew's Clan: Andrew is oldest brother and a master wine maker; Rachel is his better half, a real savvy but caring New Yorker; and Kylie & Caelyn, their angel twin daughters. 

...Gareth's Clan: Gareth is the middle son and master nurseryman; Jade is his better half, a horse-loving country girl; and Jacob their beautiful son;

...Shaun is the youngest son and he still seems to be deciding what he is master of; he currently has a food food truck and works as a management consultant.

The whole Barns family wishes you warm and welcome stay at Eventide Lodge. Enjoy the tranquil scenary and be sure to taste the family's terrific wine from Mischa Estate!
