We decided to take an impromptu 2 night getaway to the Otways and needed a pet friendly spot to accommodate our Airedale, Maestro. Luckily we came across Glenaire Cottages where our accommodation, Cape Cottage, had a fabulous fenced in areas for pets.

Everything you need to escape from the world and relax. We went in the heat of January, but the airconditioner and fans maintained a beautiful environment. The Owner Bo is a delight. From the moment you arrive she is hospitable and warm. You're really left to your own devices, which is great for a romantic getaway. Almost no mobile reception,...

We spent a week over the Christmas break in the newly renovated Lake cottage and it was absolutely lovely!! The cottage was very pet friendly and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay - we'll definitely be back again :-)

My fiance and I have been to Glenaire Cottages twice, and we absolutely love it. We plan to go back every year! The cottages are spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could need. They have log walls and real wood fireplaces, and are surrounded by beautiful forest, it makes you feel like you really are in a cosy...

As your first TripAdvisor review we are thrilled to be the recipient of such a positive & comprehensive response to this property. Thank you for the friends & family you have sent to us.

Spent the grand final long weekend at The Lake cottage and Glenaire with my partner and had a fantastic time. The cottage had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend including a spa bath on the deck and a wood fire enclosed burner inside. The couches looked new, the table had a crisp white cloth and the kitchen came with...

What a fabulous review! Thanks Christine. And we saw your great photos on Instagram. Bo has taken your recommendations re bathroom as she is planning a reno on Lake cottage in November. So glad you enjoyed the forest walk and I am down there this week attending to that tree. Cheers, Neil.

We stayed in The Cove with our greyhound Fri-Sun. Loved this place! Clean, cozy, and private. Great views from rooms, lounge and outside deck with spa. Everything we needed (and more) was available to set ourselves up for the weekend in a "log cabin in the woods" - dog had the best time chilling in front of the fire, pet...

We only stayed for two nights on a little impromptu trip and couldn't have been more happy with our stay. Both Neil and Bo were incredibly helpful when we (stupidly) left the vouchers we had planned to pay with back in Adelaide. We stayed in The Forest rooms and found the mix of rustic charm and modern amenities brilliant. The...

Hi David & Lucilla, Thank you for your kind review.

Stayed at the end of March when relatives where over from the UK visiting and we wanted to show them the beauty of the Great Ocean Road.

The cottages are great. They are very well appointed and comfortable. Although there are four cottages in a row they have been designed to gain maximum privacy. This is a beautiful part of the World, the views are lovely and the forest so peaceful. The road is closer to the cottages than I would have expected, but I didn't really...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inspired by nature, Glenaire Cottages are designed to offer a restful sanctuary, superb views and a taste of relaxed country living in a breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful setting. In winter, sit in front of a crackling log fire and watch the wild storms roll in across the Southern Ocean. In summer sit on the balcony, sip a refreshing ale, watch the birds, take in the fresh air and bask in the immense beauty of it all. We offer a choice of four spa cottages. All have outstanding ocean views, log fires and your comfort and privacy in mind. We are pet friendly and provide firewood, fresh flowers, romantic candles, all linen and can cater to your whims by arrangement. Satellite television, DVD, stereo, a covered veranda, undercover parking, gas BBQ and pet friendly yards are all included.
