Where your dogs are as welcome as you are at our Otway Ranges pet friendly accommodation!
We treat your pet to 5 star luxury.
Pet friendly? You better believe it! We were nominated for the Best Pet Friendly accommodation in the nation in 2015 and are proud to have held the 5 Paw Rating for Dog Friendly Accommodation since 2008 from Holidaying with Dogs – one of just a handful in Australia!
We know your dog is as much a part of the family as the people within it – this is why we go all out to make them feel at home. Happy dogs, happy people! We provide a cosy bed, with blanket and bowls, home made dog treats and fabulous rain water to welcome your canine pal on arrival. We even leave some furniture cover sheets for the couch potatoes among the party.
Your dog will love the open spaces and long bush walks. Our huge dam is securely fenced so that your dog/s can be off leash for some happy galloping and perhaps a swim or two. The yards around the cottages also ensure that they can play with relish and you don’t need to worry about them running off into the bush after all those interesting new smells. Because our cottages are at least 50 – 75 meters apart, there is minimal risk of finding another dog on the other side of your fence.
Your Assistance Animals are, naturally, most welcome too!
Here at Countrywide Cottages, we pride ourselves on the meticulous cleanliness of our cottages. Please be assured you won’t see evidence of previous guests pets in your cottage when you stay here in our Lorne dog friendly accommodation!
Dogs are allowed in the Otway Forest Park just beyond our back fence too – a wonderful spot to take advantage of our Great Ocean Road dog friendly accommodation , so let them drag you along for a walk and take home a happily exhausted little mate. There are also lots of dog friendly beaches within half an hours drive also, for the salt water fiends.
You may have noticed the amazing images on our website. And did you notice the beautiful videos below? We are very happy to be in partnership with one of Melbournes best pet photographer, Caitlin from Ragamuffin Pet Photography. By prior arrangement, Caitlin can visit while you are here and provide you with some lasting memories of your gorgeous pooch!
