House in Lorne
from $300
per night
Car parks


Welcome to Artists Retreat.


Nestled into the Otway landscape and adorned with original artworks, this cute 2 bedroom pet friendly escape is perfect for unwinding and regaining that lost energy taken from the daily grind.

A short 400m stroll into town allows for that classic park the car and walk everywhere convenience. Whilst the driveway may be steep, that's about it. A rarity in Lorne holiday homes. The home itself features a comfortable opening living space with lofted ceilings and lovely ocean glimpses. Fully en suited master bedroom, spacious deck area and ample undercover off street parking top the list of features. Pets are well accommodated for as are the kids or second couple in the second bedroom. Whether you have an artistic flair or simply enjoy the creations of those who do, Artists Retreat is just the spot for you.

As good location for a stay in Lorne that can used without a vehicle once there. Well appointed house with great deck and views amongst native flora and fauna.

A Tranquil Sojourn

Krystine Johnston - 4th February 2021

The Artist’s Retreat is thrillingly situated in the canopy of many trees offering the opportunity to interact with friendly King Parrots. The home was spacious, light, clean and comfortable with every convenience provided. Looking forward to returning.

Very good location, ocean view, can see sunrise over the ocean from balcony. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms which is good for the comfort of two families. Very difficult access on the steep driveway. Beds could definitely be more comfortable for this rates. The BBQ could be more clean and should be placed on the balcony as advertised on the website....for convenience.

Beautiful Property

Peter Ryan - 25th January 2021

We (including our border collie) enjoyed a wonderful stay at this well located property, a short walk to the town and beach. Nestled within the treetops, we were welcomed by the King Parrots and Cookatoos each afternoon.

What a gem!

TimR - 5th August 2019

The apartment is in a nice secluded location, but still easy to walk to the shops. We had views of the ocean and the house was very family friendly. Thank you.

Great Stay!

Great Location, Very Peaceful

Jiuliana - 9th March 2019

Great location, very peaceful and charming accommodation. Quite a steep driveway, which some may find quite tricky to navigate. Overall, a very nice and easy stay.

Great pet-friendly family accommodation

Steph - 14th February 2019

With two young kids, and two dogs, this brilliant little beach house was perfect for us. Being all on one level was a bonus for us (with a very busy 16 month old). We'll definitely be staying again; thank you for having us.


Tahlor - 29th May 2018

Ideal location to relax rain or shine. Steep driveway not a drawback when you have the magnificent views of the ocean and bush surrounds.this place is highly recommended and we will definitely return.

Great location

Lisa - 21st March 2018

Cute apartment. Clean. Good views. Great location. Air con was not great however when its 36 degrees.

So much to love!

NathanIman - 30th May 2017

So happy to stay in another house in beautiful Lorne, that welcomes our gorgeous happy dogs. We need more pet friendly homes!! This home is a beautiful, clean, incredibly comfortable property, nestled on a hill with a wonderful view. We felt really happy here, so did our dogs. It had everything we needed for a relaxing break from our busy city life. We WILL be back for sure. The only thing we struggled with a little bit, was the steep driveway. We have a large 4WD SUV - the driveway is narrow and steep. Those with lower cars might struggle. But, we understand there are many properties in Lorne with similar access - how else do you enjoy those gorgeous views? - it goes with the territory.

Great Spot

JoRose - 26th April 2017

Home is in a great spot short walk to restaurants and beach. Great that our dog was welcome

Stunning view from balcony

julia - 19th March 2017

Dog friendly but property tired and bathroom needed cleaning

Not just another pet friendly property

Sophie - 7th June 2016

We couldn't fault this property. After the slightly challenging driveway, the moment we stepped in the door, we felt immediately rewarded. It was fresh, clean and we loved the little personal touches. We also really liked the privacy screen and planter boxes on the deck. It is not just another pet friendly property, we were impressed with the attention to detail, the dog bowls, the artwork on the wall. It was obvious that humans as well as their best friends are both welcome at Artist's Retreat.
