'Pips on Bank' is an historic cottage built in 1867 that we have renovated with the desire to ensure your stay is comfortable, inspiring and one to remember.
We have maintained the original features of the cottage (including the very low doorways in the rear bedrooms, please remember to 'duck') and brought them to the 21st century with a little eclectic styling and artistic flair.
Pips on Bank boasts 2 Queen Bedrooms and another with 2 single beds, all with new beds, furnishings and luxurious linens. Our cosy lounge offers an open fireplace to relax by on a winter weekend with a wine and a good book from our small but growing library. Games, DVDs, activities are also available for your entertainment. A HD TV and a fabulous Bluetooth sound system along with free WiFi (almost connected), quietly blend into the ambiance and only add to your holiday comfort.
We offer a light filled kitchen with all of the conveniences required for preparing wonderful meals or simply a fabulous morning coffee. Please feel free to use the herbs that are in season in our kitchen garden. The dining room features the stone wall and fireplace from the original cottage kitchen and through the french doors will open your dining experience out to the alfresco. Outdoor furniture and BBQ are available for sunny breakfasts or balmy evening get togethers. The backyard provides an abundance of lounging on the lawn space, or the perfect area for a family cricket match!
Our bathroom offers both a spacious shower and freestanding bath for your convenience and enjoyment.
Port Fairy would have to be considered the jewel of the South West Coast, only 250km from Melbourne CBD and easily accessible by rail and bus. There is no excuse not to visit for a short break or a longer week of summer fun.
Pips on Bank is located 500m from the first of many hotels and restaurants. Continue a little further and you will find cafes, bakeries and a lovely little shopping village. It is the perfect stroll to a deliberately slow and luxurious brunch on a weekend, or an easy distance to walk to dinner and enjoy a drink!
We are located between the two popular beaches and wharf precinct where a popular local market is held and close to the public transport routes.
Everything is accessible by foot when staying at Pips on Bank. A great excuse to park the car in the drive and walk or, alternatively bring along your bikes for easy riding and exploring.
