“Delightful stay and hosts”
Reviewed July 2, 2011

A must stay when driving along the Great Ocean Road. Beautiful location, set back from the main street in a pretty garden. Only two rooms available but each of them with their own ensuite bathroom and separate lounge area. Great hosts (Karen & John), phantastic fully cooked breakfast. Defintely value for money.

We drove the Great Ocean Road from Apollo Bay and chose Butterfly Farm as a stopover as it is ideally situated between Port Campbell and Warnambool - affording the opportunity for backtracking if needed. The location also offers easy access to Princes Highway for the inland drive to Melbourne.

Butterfly Farm has been nicely renovated with lovely Victorian / Edwardian architectural touches. Our suite was equipped with a comfortable poster king bed, a single bed (in the same room), an ensuite bathroom, and a separate sitting area with TV and refrigerator.

The grounds and garden surrounding the house have been lovingly tended and are a warm and friendly spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and listen to the birds. Hosts, Karen and John, were extremely friendly; and we enjoyed sharing stories about traveling, gardening, and musical talents.

The location is rural, but far from isolated. If you are arriving late, plan to eat before you come. The nearest restaurant is about 10 miles away in Allandale. John fixed us an outstanding hot breakfast to order of sausage, bacon, eggs, toast, croissants, juice, fresh fruit, cheeses, etc. that set us up for a full day's visit to Port Fairy. On our second day, Karen dished up a delicious continental breakfast that was more tham ample.

Our sincere thanks to Karen and John for making us feel like Butterfly Farm was our home away from home.

Wish we'd had more than one night! This is quite a remote area, nearest restaurants are in Post Campbell, and once you're here, you're truly getting away from it all. Your own sitting room with fridge, kettle, tea etc, and a lovely bedroom with 4-poster and single, perfect for small families or couples. Our 8 yr old loved the garden swing & the sweet old dog, and John and Karen are very friendly hosts. We had opted for a light breakfast, and wished we hadn't been so sensible when we read all other other guests' comments about the great breakfast- I think we missed out! But still got through piles of toast hearing John's tales of the 1970s music scene. Beautiful quiet cove nearby for sunsets.
