Willowbank is a beach stay with a difference. Our cottage is the result of a passion Ed and I share, the inside of our cottage is built of recycled materials mainly from old houses we have demolished in Lorne. The exterior cladding is locally cut trees milled at Ed's old family timber mill. It took us 5 years to build our cottage. Our other passion is having a holiday with our dog, we have fenced the deck so your pooch can be right there with you enjoying your company (in/out of the house). Lorne also has an excellent dog beach 24/7. So come and enjoy a holiday with your best friend near the beach.
