“Welcoming and Tranquil”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Had a lovely couple of relaxing days, weather was fantastic and township not over crowded withtourists or kids, easy to get to and from but will need car. Stayed in Unit no.1 2 bed spa cottage, everything supplied that is needed but Arthur and Carol (lovely couple) are on hand for any further needs or information. Beautiful to relax on the veranda and take in the scenery and the sound of the birds in the morning also had a BBQ on the night. Lakes Entrance is well diverse in shops, cafe's etc. also has a big Safeway and fantastic for those fishing buffs, everything you need. would highly recommend and will be returning.

Found this cool little place tucked back in the bush. The proprietor, Arthur, was the most obliging, good natured fellow. They feed the parrots and other birds every morning, possums and sugar gliders come out at dusk to clean up the remaining seed. Each cabin is secluded with a nice deck and a Barbie out back. You can walk down to the Jetty and fish or go crabbing. The town is just down the hill. Definitely beats being amongst the throng.

My partner is over from Ireland and I thought I would take him to Lakes Entrance to show him around. We stayed at Kalimna Cottages and we were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped they are. The rooms are spacious and VERY clean. They are well appointed with spas in each cottage. Each cottage has a BBQ outside so you can buy local seafood and enjoy it.

We were travelling between Melbourne and Canberra when we decided to stop at Lakes Entrance. Just before arriving, we saw that small cottages at Kalimna and decided to stop there. What a nice surprise ! We were warmly welcomed by the owners. They showed us this nice cottage and explained us at what time they feed the birds and animals, so we were able to watch them in the morning. No breakfast but they gave us milk to add at the coffee and tea which are available in the cottage. Not too expensive, very good value.

Big surprise when we discovered this familial cottage. Located in the middle of the wood, each "bungalows" made of wood are just perfect for any kind of travellers who are on a road-trip and look for a bit of comfort. You got a small kitchenette, TV, barbecue and a cheminee :) Even if you only stay there for one night, you should definitely see the owners feeding the possums at 9pm and the parrots at 9am before your check out :) Really happy for once to have followed a lonely planet review.

We have stayed at these cottages on and off for several years using them as a stop overnight on our way to our holiday house much further up the coast. It gets all the ticks from us....... Facilities excellent, allowing us to refrigerate our supplies that we are travelling with, warm, clean, with everything you need to "eat in" if you prefer (which we do). Decor a little jaded but very comfy. Quite close enough to drive into town for shopping, restaurants or the beach. You are surrounded by Aussie bush, birds and animals here, makes for lovely walks. Only word of warning .... mosquitos. Coils are provided but personal spray helps ... It is in the middle of the bush after all! Stayed at many hotels in Lakes over the years and recommend this one.

Lovely relaxing time spent at these cottages. Everything we needed was on hand, they were well setup and very clean, quiet bush setting off main road, friendly hosts and wildlife. Only couple minutes drive into Lakes Entrance where we enjoyed tasty Chinese meal at the Floating Dragon, big serves made to share and chocolate chilli pistachio wontons were delish! Definitely recommend a visit to this spot.

Room Tip: Beware mozzies and bring some repellant for outdoor dining
