This is truly one of the loveliest properties where we have ever had the pleasure of staying. If you are looking for a peaceful setting, luxury accommodations and warm personal service, The Orchard Luxury B & B is the perfect spot. Prior to our stay, Helen assisted us with dining reservations at Paringa, Montalto and Port Phillip Estate, - all of which were exceptional. She arranged for transportation to dinner each evening so we did not need to worry about enjoying the evening and then driving back in the dark and also assisted with lots of information about the area. It was greatly appreciated as this was our first trip to Australia. We were welcomed graciously by Frank upon arrival. He took lots of time to acquaint us with our room and the property. We stayed in The Cherry Suite. It was very spacious with very pleasant furnishings. The view is exceptionally tranquil - looking out onto the expanse of lawn and then on to the pond, the apple orchard and the ducks. Frank then showed us the breakfast menu to make our selections. Amazing!! The breakfasts expertly prepared by Helen are absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. They focus on using seasonal, local ingredients so everything was super fresh. Her omelets are divine. The portions are very generous!! It was truly a treat to greet Frank every morning when he arrived with our lavish breakfast tray. You truly feel like you are a guest in their home - not staying at a lodging property. A few added yummy treats baked by Helen are provided in your room. (I won't spoil the surprise! We are wishing we had some to enjoy now!) The room is equipped with a small refrigerator - stocked with water and milk, wine glasses and champagne glasses and some other necessities. This was a fabulous location to use as a home base to explore the Mornington Peninsula wineries, Phillip Island and surrounding areas. The B & B is a little off the beaten path, but that only adds to the ambiance. Helen and Frank are absolutely fabulous hosts. We only wished our stay had been longer!! If you are on the Mornington Peninsula, The Orchard Luxury B & B should be your choice for a wonderful stay. You will unwind and relax the moment you arrive.
