There are no additional charges to stay at our property, a bond is not required and the linen service and cleaning cost is included in the nightly rate.
This 3 bedroom cottage offers style and character. It has been verified as the original Station Master's Cottage (Circa 1913) from the old Anderson railway station, which was located at what is now the Phillip Island roundabout. The house was relocated to its current position in 1981, following the closure of the rail line from Nyora to Wonthaggi.
Behind the picket fence lies a charming cottage steeped in history and offering stylish accommodation, while retaining much of its century old woodwork.
The cottage has an open plan living area, which features original dado panelling, complemented by leather couches and decor. This adjoins the spacious light-filled kitchen/dining area. With 3 large bedrooms the first two comprise queen beds, the third has 2 single beds.
Features include fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, LCD TV, DVD, CD/iPod player, split system, electric blankets on queen beds and separate laundry with washing machine, bathroom and separate toilet. Clothesline located north side of cottage.
Well behaved pets are welcome. The property is set on a large flat block giving pets plenty of room to run around and explore. It is fully fenced and pets are allowed inside (not on the furniture or in the bedrooms). Please advise if bringing pets when booking.
Head outside to an undercover deck complete with BBQ and outdoor setting. The cottage is set on a fully fenced block (650sq mtrs), which makes it perfect for families and a dog's paradise. Whether you want to spend the day on the beach or have a quiet relax on the decks, this one's for you.
Long driveway allows for up to 3 cars to be parked securely behind the front gates.

Loved this place
A lovely, tastefully decorated, character-filled cottage. It had everything we needed. Loved the subtle tributes to its history. To have linen included made it all hassle free. We'd love to come back here for a longer stay. Highly recommended.
Hi Geoff, Hope you and your family enjoyed your stay. We really appreciate you left the cottage/property very tidy and would love to welcome you back any time in the future. Hopefully you had the chance to get out and about and see some of the sites in and around our little piece of paradise! Kind regards, Mary-Anne
Great location and cottage had everything we needed!
Absolutely love this 'little' house (much bigger than it looks) So charming and has everything you need. Very clean and tidy! Can tell it is well loved. Thank you for a lovely stay, we will be back again!
We are a family of 5 who enjoyed our September stay at SMC. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kids loved the good sized secure yard and tree to climb. Very well equipped in terms of cooking/kitchen utensils. Loved the little extras like hot water bottles and snap lock bags. Prompt communication with the owner was appreciated. Clean and well maintained. Highly recommend.
Very clean and comfortable accommodation. A good base for nearby attractions. Maybe more suitable in the warmer months.
Comfortable and relaxing
We enjoyed our stay at Station Master's Cottage last weekend. Everything we needed (and more) was provided. Easy walk to all facilities and the fenced yard was perfect for our dog. We will book again for our next visit to Venus Bay
