‘Could there be a more perfect B&B? We think not. We came to the Mornington Pennisula for a romantic getaway and wine tasting this weekend. Arriving here, we were greeted by the lovely Dot, we instantly fell in love with the retreat! Dot is the most delightful host, we were very impressed by her attention to detail and thoughtfulness. The retreat has been kept immaculately, and is beautifully presented. We loved our stay, Thank you!

‘The weather may have not played the game, but the second Sandy and I knocked on your door I’m sure the sun shone out of your door! Thanks for all the detail, you know what it takes for people to relax! Perfect birthday!’

‘Such a beautiful place you have, such serene surroundings, the trip here was a surprise for me for my 30th birthday which my boyfriend organised. Another surprise was that he proposed to me in your beautiful house…so this place that will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you.’

‘Dot was fantastic to deal with from the moment I first made contact with her. She was very proactive in offering her support to my extra needs. The McCrae Lighthouse Retreat will forever hold a special place in my and my partners hearts as this is where I popped the question to her. Thankfully, she said yes. Thank you for everything Dot.’

‘Dot was a great host, and her space is just lovely. Can’t recommend it enough as a base for a Mornington getaway. Close to the best wineries. The beach is within walking distance. Dot made us feel so welcome, providing hot treats on our arrival, and quality breakfast enough for each morning. A bottle of moscato too. Amazing spacious bathroom with direct views of the ocean. Extra towels, bath robes (handy at the spa!), heated towel rack. Highly recommended.’

‘We enjoyed a magical few days at the McCrae Lighthouse Retreat. Just a short drive from Melbourne, we found the place easily and were greeted by our lovely host. Dot went well and truly above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. The accommodation is even better than the photos, the wine and added extras made our stay extra special. The best part is it’s a short stroll to the absolutely breaktaking beaches of McCrae. We can’t thank Dot enough, she really is the best host! Highly recommend, we will be back!! Thank you Dot, you are truly amazing!’

‘Our experience at McCrae Lighthouse Retreat was simply delightful. From the moment we stepped in we were pleasantly surprised by the little surprises Dot had left to make the experience extra special. From a delicious platter of cheese and crackers, fresh milk, chocolates to a pair of bikes for a relaxing ride on the coastline… Highly recommended for a relaxing getaway in this beautiful part of Australia.’
