We stayed in the Rose Cottage which was quite cosy with a running stream outside and a wood fire. But could have done with more heating especially the bathroom. And a little more detail to dust and cobwebs but otherwise it was a great stay

Fantastic. The only thing is you can't get wifi so I suffered. But it was worth it. Clean, beautiful setting. Rambling creek out the back and front of the property. King parrots, kookaburras, some sort of green bird, a black/blue bird. Great to feed. But take your toiletries with you. Would recommend staying here.

Stayed for 4 days, thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing stay, the house was warm and inviting, clean and beautifully maintained. The surrounding area was calming and beautiful, would recommend to anyone wishing to get away from the urban rat race.

We loved this place. It's a mixture between old and new, sometimes a bit more on the old side. The houses are simple but have all what you need. They are pretty offline, no phone reception and the promised internet in the central place never worked. But being offline seemed like a good idea there anyway.

We loved this accommodation from start to finish. Amazing tranquil location in the rural area near Lorne. The Riverdale cottage was amazing - more than enough space for 4 adults and a toddler. If you want hustle, shopping, glitz, bar life, stay somewhere else...but if you want quaint charm, rustic setting with birds and kangaroos as your neighbours this is...

In short this rural and (very) rustic idyll is ideal for those who want to escape the bustle of peak-season Lorne but want to be close enough to take easy advantage of the beautiful beach and other amenities of this wonderful Victorian sea-side town. If you are looking for a quiet getaway to be 'at one' with nature (complete with...

Stayed in the rose cottage and it was perfect. Massive space, slept the 5 of us easy. Decor is stunning. Firewood already chopped. Super clean. Owners even came to fix the oven as soon as we mentioned it. All utensils provided for BBQ etc. creek out front, even hand feed a few parrots and kokabarras. Stay here

WE stayed here 10 years ago. Perfect, a 5 Star experience. Recently, it's changed hands. It's kind of the same in that the setting is fantastic, birds and forest. Beautiful. The cottages are still really cute. But we were booked into Riverbank and it was filthy. Food scraps on the BBQ, dirty floor, flies on the window sills, a cloud...

We spent two nights in the Kero cottage and wish we could have stayed far longer. Driving into the property I was completely blown away by how lush, green and tranquil the setting is. The little rustic cottage was cozy and comfortably furnished, with fresh flowers in vases and wood on the porch ready to make a fire. Waking up...
