Station House was established in 1995 by the Haigh Family, with a commitment to providing quality, self-contained accommodation for our valued guests, and preserving and enhancing a home that reflects part of the district’s history.
Our managers’ residence was built during the 1930s and reflects the Group Settlement building style of the district’s early years.
The property was bought by Ross Haigh in 1987.
Ross and Danielle Haigh have spent the interim years slowly renovating and expanding the home.
Ross’ mum Maxine moved to Margaret River in 1993 and the family business began, with Ross overseeing the building of our accommodation.
Station House opened its doors to the first guests in 1995.
The name, Station House, was chosen to compliment Railway Terrace and nearby streets named for the railway line that ran on what is now reserve land opposite the property.
Walter, the grandfather of Danielle Haigh (nee Berryman) worked on the railway, living in this street during the 1930s with wife Nina, daughter Pamela and son Michael (Danielle’s father).
For much of its early life, our little home was owned by Alice Beck, a writer and local identity, who took pride in keeping a beautiful garden.
This is another aspect we bought back to the property (rather overgrown when Ross bought it) thanks to Maxine’s green fingers and hard work.
