This place is close enough to leongatha, miraboo north, and dumbalk to be able to enjoy nice meals and day trips. The cottage was a nice distance from others so we had lots of comfy privacy. The amenities were good so we enjoyed cooking for one another on our honeymoon here. There is also a pool and BBQ access for summer and though there is heating, we enjoyed a nice fire for the cooler season we stayed. It costs a little for firewood, but nothing we are not already used to ourselves coming from our own country upbringings. The kindling was included and firefighters etc. for cooler non fire ban months of course.

The room was very comfy, spa included in the bathroom, lovely dining table and absolutely gorgeous views of the hills from the room. Comfy chairs and DVDs offered to borrow for the stay - plus video games in our cottage!! They had a PlayStation, we had a ball. The owners are friendly and welcoming the way som B&B people are, and said we could walk around the property if we wanted a stroll in the lovely countryside. They also helped us to know what towns are nearby and what things there are to do, like not too far away Phillip island penguin visits, etc.

Luxurious cottage, stunning views, cozy but spacious, comfortable and we recommend it highly and would stay again!

Room Tip: All the cottages look amazing, you can't go wrong. Good for couples driving for a peaceful getaw...

Thanks guys - it was a pleasure hosting you for your honeymoon, i think the Orchard Cottage is perfect for that isn't it! We were up there a couple of days ago changing linen over and watching a brilliant storm ranging over the valley; a picture postcard moment in the late afternoon. Hmm, we might have to stay there ourselves one day. Regards Marie & Phill

We had an extended stay here, using it as a base to explore the Gippsland region. We were allocated one of the two bedroom cottages, which had everything we needed for our stay; plenty of crockery, cutlery, very comfortable bedding and good air conditioning - essential as we experienced a few cold mornings and evenings during our visit. Everything was as described on the website.
The views from the cottage across the small valley were great, rolling green hills with virtually no sign of human habitation - a very peaceful spot to get away from it all. The nearest large town, Leongatha, was only 20 minutes drive; we only visited there for provisions and the occasional lunch.
The area has many great walks, including along the disused rail lines, which we could access at Mirboo North or Meenyian, both about 15 minutes drive away.
Our hosts, Phill and Marie, were very helpful with ideas of places to visit and nearby dining options. A great escape - we would stay here again when next visiting the region.

Hi R & S,

I must have missed this, sorry. Was great having you here and even though the weather outside was a bit naff i'm glad you had a nice time. Just starting to get nice down here and the dam is overflowing - good hedge against summer though. - Phill

You're welcome guys. I'm glad it was quiet whilst you were here as it gave us a chance to chat and do some weeding at the same time. Usually it's just the weeding! Hope to see you again.

Besides the great views and peaceful surroundings, the cottages were very clean and comfortable and had everything you could need for a short break. After a day spent exploring the local area it was a pleasure to come back to this place. Would highly recommend a stay.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your positive feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Loves Lane. The mattress is a medium firm, which suits almost everyone and is of the type usually found in good accommodation but we're truly sorry if your sleep was inconvenienced. The instructions to use the video player is in the coffee table draw. Cheers - Phill
