Overview

About the property

Lawson's Cottage is a luxurious, self contained cottage, located in the heart of Geelong with a 4 1/2 star rating. With every stay, we provide you with full breakfast provisions including bacon, eggs, yoghurt, seasonal fruit, cereal and much more.

With easy access to Eastern Beach and only minutes from the CBD, South Geelong train station, the Barwon River, Landy Field and Simmonds Stadium, home to the Geelong Cats AFL team, Lawson's Cottage is the perfect location to stay while visiting Geelong.

Our self contained home has 2 well appointed bedrooms with luxurious cotton sheets, electric blankets (for those cold winter nights) with the Master room having its own television.

The Master room has a Queen size bed with a Double and Single bed in the Second bedroom. We can provide on request a port-a-cot if required. (Bedding is supplied for the extra beds)

Modern Features

Renovated in 1920's style with all the benefits of modern day living.

Our fully equipped kitchen includes a gas cooktop, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave oven. Quality utensils and crockery are included - perfect for home entertaining. Alongside the kitchen is our European laundry with Miele washer and dryer.

Step back in time with our deep clawfoot bath, great for relaxing. Our dual shower has two separate heads, ideal for sharing. BUT the best thing about our bathroom is the under floor heating, no cold feet in winter.

Relax in the evening with a glass of port and chocolates (provided for you) in front of our Gas Fire place. On the wall we have a 37 inch Digital TV - enjoy a movie from our extensive DVD collection.

TV not for you... please make use of our swap library. Bring a book from home and swap with one from our collection. Finish what you started while on holidays with us at Lawson's Cottage.

Summer Living

Lawson's Cottage has a charming outdoor deck and entertainment area that is beautifully landscaped. Enjoy an afternoon wine, while your steak is grilling on the BBQ in complete privacy.

The cottage consists of two reverse cycle air conditioners for your comfort.

A lovely place to stay in Geelong

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area to attend the Avalon airshow, and we picked this lovely cottage to stay in because it looked cosy and welcoming, we were not disappointed. The amenities were perfect, everything was lovely quality (beds, bedding and towels) it was well stocked with breakfast provisions again of great quality. We are now looking at coming back to stay and seeing more of what Geelong has to offer

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was spotless, has terrific ambience - a mixture of old and new - with great attention to detail. Breakfast and snack supplies, good quality bedding and gowns, spare umbrellas, DVDs for old and young, games, books, lovely old china and modern table settings, a BBQ, outdoor setting, full laundry with spare laundry powder, a heated floor in the bathroom. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of staying and very close to the train station if travelling by public transport. A real find!
