We stayed in Lilly Pilly Cottage for 3 nights this week and it has to be the best cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in so many over the years). There are 4 cottages on the property and are located about 5 kms out of Lakes Entrance on large acreage so it is very quiet and... More

We fell in love with the place. Originally we wanted to go to Merimbula with lakes entrance as a stop off in both directions. We wished we'd just stayed at Lilly Pilly cottage! All of the little touches, and the personal welcome were great. We would recommend staying at Araluen cottages to any couple. And will look to stay there... More

We stated here for 3 nights and just wish it had been for longer. The thought and work that has gone into them is first class and nothing was too much trouble for both Peter and Marie Ann whilst we were there. The 4 cottages are each designed to be completely private in a stunning setting. To top it all... More

Just spent 4 nights at Araluen park and honestly cannot recommend highly enough as anything I say just won't do the location, the cottage or the hosts justice. Absolutely perfect in every way. The cottage was so private with amazing views with some beautiful antique wooden furniture, it felt like coming home after evey trip out.

Had a fantastic 12 days at the beautiful Dianella cottage at Araluen Park. The accommodation exceeded all our expectations. The cottage has obviously been created with comfort and peaceful surroundings in mind. Our hosts, Peter and Marie Ann were most gracious and attentive and always eager to please. We were made to feel most welcome. Easily one to the best... More

Dianella Cottage is our most recent cottage, completed in November 2014. Thanks to Ray and Wendy for choosing to stay, suggesting some fine tuning tips for the cottage, and recording over 40 of the 100+ bird species on the property during their stay. More

This was our 40th wedding anniversary escape and it was absolutely lovely. The Lilly Pilly cottage was unique, well equiped and the evenings spent by the fireside were very romantic and peaceful. Only sound that could be heard was the local wildlife. What a beautiful place to stay and it won't be long until we are back.

We were very fortunate to receive a voucher from my sister and brother in law for Christmas. From the beginning Peter and Marie Anne couldn't have been more helpful. From the lovely warm welcome, everything was explained and shown to you, breakfast was divine. Lilly Pilly Cottage was beautiful, immaculate, fresh and comfortable. You can see that Peter and Marie... More

We stayed at Lilly Pilly cottage for one night whilst driving between Melbourne and Sydney in the middle of May. It was a shame we couldn't stay longer.

Thank you for your comments. Lakes Entrance and surrounding East Gippsland has so many natural attractions that you need to stay awhile to really enjoy the experiences. We take pride in the sustainability of our cottages, with the exception of gas for the hot water and cooking, the cottages really are fully sustainable. Hope you come back our way and... More

Glad you enjoyed the alpacas, they really are interesting and intelligent animals. The two new crias (babies) are growing really quickly now. Hope you can stay longer next time to see more of Lakes Entrance and the surrounding area. Thank you for your comments - we appreciate your feedback. More
