The Grey House is self-contained, short stay accommodation in Grafton with a touch of vintage. Price listed includes cleaning fee.
The Grey House has been stylishly restored to offer you a relaxing place to escape and base yourself while you explore the beautiful Clarence Valley.
Furnished with mid-century and contemporary furniture, original artworks and quality appliances, The Grey House’s fine linen, comfy robes and eco bathroom products provide a touch of hotel luxury.
The 130-year-old worker’s cottage is located in quiet tree-lined heritage precinct, a short stroll to the city’s heart, and its cafes, restaurants, pubs, parks and country stores.
Around the corner you will find the award winning regional art gallery and fascinating Schaeffer House museum.
The area’s pride and joy and the largest river system on the Eastern seaboard, the Clarence is also literally a stone’s throw away.
Grafton is the home of the Jacaranda tree and the first city to be established on the North Coast.
Its vast river system traverses to the nearby diverse coastline showcasing its colourful villages and pristine national parks — all located in the beautiful Clarence Valley and its surrounds.

The house is nicely appointed so guests enjoy their stay. We appreciate quality and take pride in our historic cottage. We hope you do too. Be mindful of neighbours if you are planning any social occasions. No smoking in the house. Thanks.
I'm a journalist/sub editor for a regional daily newspaper and keen to start traveling internationally now my daughter has grown up. I'm a 'young' 48, looking forward to venturing out of Australia more and soaking up different cultures and sights and perhaps write a few travel stories along the way. My partner Simon is a photographer and wine writer who has some travel experience and is keen to get more.
We opened our own boutique, short-stay accommodation The Grey House in our hometown of Grafton in July 2014. It's 130 year old worker's cottage we have restored to create a homely but stylish space for visitors to rest their head and explore our historic city with its vast waterway -- the Clarence River -- right at its centre.
In 2017 we added Troutbeck Cottage, Ebor (1.5 hours from Grafton) to our Airbnb family. The cute one-bedroom mountain escape is in walking distance to village's famous waterfalls. It has been refurbished to channelling a Scandi cabin style and is suitable for couples and families wanting to get back to nature in comfort.
I'm an avid collector of vintage furniture and contemporary art some of which you will see at both The Grey House and Troutbeck Cottage.
