Old Lorne ambiance

David B - 20th June 2022

A great weekend enjoyed in the period charm of Ravenswood. Fantastic decor, furniture and facilities beautifully maintained and presented for functional use. A great position to enjoy Lorne’s options. Lovely to find the hints to the home’s history and previous owners.

Just Special

Trish V - 17th April 2022

When we walked into Ravenswood, it was like we were stepping into Lorne’s history. We loved reading about the history of the home. The furnishings, the vibe and the warmth of the house got us all reminiscing about simpler times, the beauty of old fashioned grandeur, and the privilege of seeing old fashioned craftsmanship. Lovely place that we would be delighted to stay in again. And can I say, the gardens were absolutely brilliant for an Easter Egg hunt.

Great location for a family getaway!

Jaclyn T - 27th November 2021

We absolutely loved our stay here. House was big enough for 3 families to stay and have space. Perfect location to walk everyone. House included everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Old time spirit

Such a great and unique place

Martin - 2nd March 2020

Me and my friends had a great stay at Ravenswood for my birthday. It's such a unique place and oozes history from every corner. Very clean, well furnished and comfy beds. I will definitely be back very soon.

Beautiful Heritage Villa

David - 18th November 2019

Ravenswood is a charming villa that particularly suits large group getaways. Extremely comfortable with all the amenity that you need for a relaxing stay in Lorne. Good bedding, plenty of ensuite/bathrooms and spaces to withdraw to or gather in. Really well located so you can pretty well walk everywhere (except to the supermarket perhaps). Great Ocean Roads Real Estate were fantastic in providing great communication, flexible entry/exit and advice around our visit to Lorne.


Simone - 23rd May 2019

This property is stunning. We had a group of 9 adults and there was plenty of space for all. The outdoor area was great for our Friday night BBQ. We were all excited to light the fire as the nights were cool. The location was ideal for those not wanting to climb the hills of Lorne. We will definitely be back

Stunning location

Maree - 6th May 2019

Great place for a relaxing holiday. We had a great time with our extended family, kids had a lovely time, everything you you need, walking distance to beach and shops.

Charming House

CollegeGirls - 13th April 2019

Ravenswood was ideal for our annual college girls reunion with kids. Being so close to the beach and shops allowed us to enjoy the surrounds without using the car. The house is cosy and warm and well equipped. It's definitely an experience not to miss.

Great house

Rene - 18th January 2019

The perfect house for me and my family. Great location and very comfortable. Nice to enjoy a bit of luxury on a holiday. I'd go there again tomorrow.


FWS10 - 8th January 2019

If you love period homes this one is for you! Great for large groups or two families with lots of nooks if you want some quiet reading time. The best equipped kitchen I have seen in a holiday rental! Great location, walk to everything.


Katy - 21st November 2017

We loved our stay at Ravenswood, it was the perfect location and a great size for a group of friends.
