Our Luxury

The Louise is part of the esteemed Baillie Lodges collection, where a stay is the start of a wonderful addiction to the luxury of travel. Each of the Baillie Lodges properties is located in an extraordinary destination, where a personal connection with the people and place makes every stay a memorable one. At The Louise, guests have personal access to the region’s iconic wineries alongside small scale cellar doors, to producers and their premium produce, to artists and their works.

Our commitment to the environment

The Baillie Lodges environmental commitment is best expressed by each lodge’s interaction with its local natural and cultural surroundings.

Baillie Lodges’ commitment to environmental sustainability is best expressed by each lodge’s interaction with its local natural and cultural surroundings. A dynamic environmental management plan is at the heart of lodge operations and ultimately enhances each guest’s experience of the destination.

Community

Community

The Louise employs a large proportion of its team from the local community and actively supports local initiatives and events like the Barossa and Marananga Wine Shows and the Seppeltsfield Road Business Alliance. The Louise also supports social organisations like the Barossa Foundation, Room to Read, Ronald McDonald House and the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Produce

Produce

Singing fresh greens and vegetables that appear on Appellation’s menu each evening are from The Louise’s  own kitchen garden, just metres from the restaurant. The use of producers based within 100km to provide an average of 85% of ingredients served in the restaurant results in significant economic return to the local community, producers and smaller markets, helping to keep local family businesses viable.

Recycling

Recycling

Paper and glass recycling is practised throughout the property. A worm farm has been established to recycle all wet waste from the kitchen and provide rich fertiliser for the grounds, thus minimising waste removal requirements from the property. A waste water treatment plant has been installed to recycle all waste water from the property to maintain the grounds and gardens.

Water

Water

South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent in the world. Water conservation and recycling is an imperative for all who live here. Water served in the restaurant is filtered, collected rainwater. For sparkling water, the restaurant carbonates the filtered rainwater, not relying on imported bottled water, thus reducing landfill and carbon emissions.
