The Bayleys
House in Lorne
from $467.5
per night


The Bayleys beach house is all about expecting the unexpected. For example, it has an abundance of space in a location you would least expect it. It oozes character. Something that is fast disappearing in cosmopolitan Lorne. It nurtures heritage while embracing modern styling. Not too cool for school but pretty damn cool. Sounds exciting, it is.

Built in the early 1920s The Bayleys was once the managers residence for Cora Lynn guest house. It has been part of the same family for 4 generations and has been expanded and renovated to accommodate large extended families and friends. The most recent refurbishment of the upper level of the home has allowed it to be opened to the public for the first time.

Nestled right behind the Main Street and an easy stroll to the central Lorne Beach, supermarket and restaurants you can lock the car up, forget about it, the Mexican is only one block away!

Comprising five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a variety of living zones, the home seems to meander its way on and off the surrounding built in verandah. The house has a fully equipped kitchen dining area and a unique Lorne family history room where you can sit by the wood fire and step back in time! There is a large outdoor heated spa next to a BBQ and entertainment area with 2 custom built outdoor wood heaters. The main lounge also has a monster 75 TV for your viewing pleasure.

The large grassy lawn was once a tennis court and as you wander around the garden you will see old fruit trees that were once part of a large orchard that the Cora Lynn guests enjoyed, the cockatoos seem to be the main consumers of them now!

There is an edible green garden and our girls Sunday, Mary, Ruby and Big Red are in the chook house and can lay fresh eggs for breakfast…if you’re lucky!

The lower level of the house is currently not in use so your privacy, peace and quiet is assured. Adjacent to the property is an original guest house bungalow that may be occupied but is separately accessed.

The Bayleys is a property that must be seen, experienced and enjoyed again and again.

Almost great

JohnMcC - 16th February 2020

Perfectly located, amazingly eccentric layout and daily feeding of the chickens. All great! Clean and huge TV which didn't matter until we had two weeks of no sun. The only complaint would be that the kitchen is way too small and pokey for the number of people staying. Again, the poor weather may have led this to be more obvious. On better days the cooking could be staggered so it wouldn't feel so crowded. Other than that - grateful thanks!

A truly delightful house - felt like home. We holidayed with our 3 adult children and their partners and grandchildren and it was so spacious! The big yard and hot tub were great bonuses as well. Will most definitely return! Very easy access to the beach with kids and beach gear in tow and very close to supermarket. A very welcoming feel
