Davidson Cottage circa 1860, was built on land purchased from Alexander Cameron (Mary MacKillop's uncle). It was made with pit-sawn timber and a shingle roof. In the 1890's the cottage was leased by the Anglican church for use as a Rectory. The building was purchased and restored by the Penola branch of the National Trust in 1987.

We have had a fantastic time experiencing Penola's history, long walks, sitting on the verandah sipping wine, vineyards, art galleries, gardens and pubs! Thank you for all the fine touches and especially the bread! I can't believe how at home we have felt and just so relaxed.
