Our stay at Waverley House Cottages was very relaxing and just what we needed. I enjoyed that it was just outside the main strip of Lakes Entrance, so it was a lot quieter and i imagine a blessing in summer with all the crowds. Our cottage the "Fishpen" was very comfortable and modern. The large kitchen offered you everything you... More

...with plenty to do and see on our doorstep in Lakes Entrance. We had a wonderful relaxing time and took advantage of the washing machine and dryer too as we did water sports every day. Waverley House Cottages was lovely, friendly, convenient and had lots of attention to detail. There were other awesome facilities on the property like the pool,... More

We chose this accomodation based off trip adviser reviews when looking for somewhere romantic, with a wood fire and cosy atmosphere to celebrate our anniversary, and this place did not let us down. Upon arrival there was no one at checkin, we just filled in a form and collected our keys from the office bench, this was a tad weird,... More

Thank you for your very thoughtful review. A few comments are puzzling - you can order, and many guests do add, full breakfast provisions if preferred, which includes plunger coffee. It is listed on our website as a choice instead of the complimentary continental provisions provided for the first morning you refer to, along with other options such as in... More

we booked for 2 nights and extended our stay to 3 nights , but we had to get on our way, this place would have to be the best of this style accomodation anywhere in Australia, the nightly rate is very good value. If ever visiting lakes entrance this is a must stay. Simply awesome

Between a long-distance move, starting our own business and getting ready for the arrival of our baby, my partner and I realised that we had never been away together. We found Waverley House Cottages and made the last-minute decision to go away for a couple of days. We were blown away by the property. Far enough from the town to... More

It's a big thumbs up from us. I have never been to a place where they have really thought of everything. Our 2 bed room cottage was incredible and catered for all of us. Loved all the little touches which made it feel home from home. Superb location, superb decor, well equipped...lovely hostess. I'm running out of superlatives...

Haha - we loved the heading "can we move in?" It is always our intention to make the cottages feel like home away from home for travellers but your title indicates we have succeeded! Thank you and we would love to put the welcome mat out for you again one day. More

Wow! Where do I start? These cottages would have to be one of the best places my family has ever stayed at. It was just what we needed after a busy holiday in Melbourne.
