Everything about Allenvale was perfect - We stayed in the Kero cottage for our honeymoon and could not have asked for a more perfect place... It was serene, quaint, quiet and romantic, with the wood fire and historical cottage (built in 1840 something...) it was divine. We loved it so very much and with Lorne's town, waterfalls and scenic walks... More

We stayed in Rose Cottage, gorgeous shabby chic style. Right in the woods with wildlife all around and a babbling stream outside our kitchen window. Wood burning stove was a must during the winter and very effective. Highly recommended.

Our family has just enjoyed a relaxing break at Allenvale, staying in Rose Cottage. Tranquil surrounds, cosy cottage, beautiful bush walks. The perfect place to unwind and recharge. Highly recommended.

We took a couples vacation to stay at Allenvale, and stayed in the Riverbank house. Words can't describe how peaceful and beautiful this place was. Beautiful fresh flowers greeted us when we arrived. The beds were very comfy, and we could hear the river running from outside our bedroom window at night whilst we dozed off to sleep. The fireplace... More

We stayed in the Kero cottage at Allenvale and found good & bad points: GOOD: Unbeatable location if you like to be removed from the town centre and in the middle of the bushland. It was so relaxing and there's some pleasant walks nearby, as well as a creek running behind and in front of the place. The bushland is... More

A real valley hideaway by a babbling creek. Beautiful walks. Lovely potbelly stove. Not too far from town either. Sadly we did not get to meet the owner but we did arrive to the fire lit!

We didn't really know what to expect, but on arrival we found that it was a simply perfect break during our whirlwind trip in Australia. We stayed at the Rose Cottage for 2 nights - which is done up exactly how an old cottage in the countryside should be. The sounds of the whispering trees, gurgling stream and the constant... More

Loved our stay at Allenvale cottages. Was only there for 2 nights and this was not long enough. It was the most beautiful hidden secret. . The location is only a couple of Kms from Lorne and is near lots of walks and waterfalls. The cottages were very clean and homely and had everything we needed, Would highly recommend these... More

We stayed in one of the cottages for 2 nights in December. Loved the wildlife in the area- including a couple of kookaburras who were very friendly and George the kangaroo who sat on the lawn and looked at us. We also heard the koalas but didn't see them. Really a lovely spot, with lush gardens. The cottage was well-equiped... More

My husband and I stayed at Allenvale Cottages in Kero Cottage. We discovered them, like another reviewer mentioned, whilst walking in the area previously. The cottage was beautful - in fact the website does not do Kerosine Cottage justice. The cottage has the most amazing windows - my husband and I have never stayed in a place with such a... More
