Also in town, Markdale Manor is known for it's Victorian charm, comfort and great food.

Mushaw House Village Inn has 9 rooms for rent in the heart of town, located in another heritage property, lovingly restored.

Aubergilles is a well-appointed home with great views of the Beaver Valley in Kimberley, restful garden sitting area and all the right amenities. Justin's Oven restaurant is a short hop down the street and the Kimberley General Store is a unique place to stock up for your travels.

Kimberley hosts another great Beaver Valley escape at Jasper Stuart House, an elegant century home accommodation in the same great location.
