Everything we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this as a spur of the moment stopover point on our way to Melbourne and were thrilled with our choice. Loved the peace and seclusion of the property. Breakfast supplies were plentiful, and the view from the place was fantastic. Great range of DVDs and books...would love to have stayed a bit longer!

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Rotherlea Lodge, it was the perfect choice for our family to get away and chill - together : ) Of course the views and ambiance were wonderful but also it was the attention to detail and thoughtfulness that made this particular property stand out. Breakfast supplies were plentiful, there were umbrellas in case of rain, throw rugs for chilly nights on the couch, a great supply of movies and an absolute first for us - not only were the kitchen knives sharp but there was a knife sharpener too, yay for those of us who love to cook! We ate out as well - a big thanks to Karen and Steve for their local dining recommendations, fab.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rotherlea Lodge on our way through to Phillip Island. We only stayed one night but could've stayed for so much longer. It was absolutely beautiful. Waking up with that amazing view overlooking the fields and the cows was spectacular. We will definitely be back for a longer stay and we will bring our dog next time.

Brilliant property, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Loved our six days in this comfortable holiday home. Everything we needed was provided. Coming from England, we had already done a lot of travelling and here we were able to relax, take breath and enjoy rural Australia. The huge windows gave wide views and to lie in bed and see the southern hemisphere starlight really was heaven.

Thank you Karen and Steve for welcoming us and letting us share Rotherlea Lodge.

An amazing pet friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rotherlea Lodge. Karen makes sure everything is sorted, from chopped wood for the fire to great recommendations for dinner and lunch at nearby townships.

The Lodge itself is just Devine for a couple to get away and have some time to yourselves. A lovely setting with a great fireplace, spa etc.

would love to return. Our dog also loved it.

Secluded, peaceful and beautifully presented.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights with our dog and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great hosts, sunset on the deck, stunning views from inside the house upstairs and down. Uncluttered, lots of storage space, DVD's to choose from and good breakfast provisions. Only drawbacks: the tank water was not nice to drink, and the bed was ridiculously soft.

Owner's Response: Hi there, thanks for the fabulous review, so glad you enjoyed your stay.... I went and checked out the tank water and after it rains it seems to get like this...we have installed gutter guard hoping this will help with filtration ( we have heavy duty filters on the tank anyway...) see how it goes.... kind regards Karen & Steve
