In Spring a wonderland of native orchids awaits discovery, and Koalas are infrequent visitors during the mating season from October to March.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit much We had a nice weekend here but it was not what we expected from the advertisement. Although the setting was quite tranquil, the ad doesn't mention that the cottage sits only a few metres from the residence and the hosts are onsite and very present. We found the hosts in the laundry without notice 3 times in 3 days and the third time he really startled our female friend. The ad specifically says pets allowed but then when we arrived with a dog the said we were supposed to have arranged it and then our dog had to stay in the laundry all weekend. I have looked at the ad again and can find nothing about this. The hosts called me on the phone twice beforehand, once wanting to take our order for a cooked breakfast and once wanting to know what time we'd be arriving. They were then waiting at the gate to greet us (and implying we were late). The greeting included the man stating he'd come in and stoke the fire before bed. We declined as we are perfectly able to keep a fire going but there was a knock on the door the following night asking the same thing. We got the impression from the ad that this was a little cottage away from it all where we could just relax and take care of ourselves. If you want an immersive weekend with hosts very actively involved with your stay, this might be the place for you. If you're after a quiet bush getaway by yourselves, it may not be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely This place was a big hit with our two young girls and entertained them very well on a winter long weekend. The location hidden down a bush track is pretty special and our hosts very welcoming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place to stay! We recently spent 6 days at Nature Lovers Nook and had a wonderful holiday. The country charm of the accommodation combined with the beautiful gardens and wildlife (including kangaroos!) made for a perfect holiday. Our hosts Julie and Jamie were very warm and welcoming; we had a log fire and a big comfy lounge room, there was also a large country kitchen which was very well equipped, which was overlooking the garden with beautiful native birds coming to visit. It all made for the most magical break; in fact we loved it so much we didn’t want come home. It is also centrally located to explore the area. If you are looking for the perfect break away, we would totally recommend Nature Lovers Nook. The Mornington Peninsula is truly a must see place to visit!
