Situated just 100 metres from a pristine sandy beach and a short walk to the seaside village of Cowes with shops and restaurants; Glen Isla House offers absolute privacy, genuine old-world charm and refined elegance, with warm hospitality . Secure off-street parking for all guest vehicles inside the grounds (out of public view) and fast wireless internet access (Wi-Fi) provided free (fair use policy applies).

Owners, Madeleine and Ian Baker created Glen Isla House as a small elegant hotel-style adult retreat in the European style to offer accommodations quite unique on Phillip Island. Internationally well travelled hosts offer local advice and warm hospitality.

Accommodations include a separate four-poster romantic heritage suite-cottage (fully restored heritage accommodations), elegant purpose-architected en-suited guest rooms classically furnished with garden vistas, and a stylish self-cater cottage with fully equipped kitchen set under 100 year-old oak trees.

Chef-inspired special cooked-to-order breakfast served at individual tables in the elegant restaurant-style dining room for B&B guests. We have two resident professional chefs at Glen Isla and many guests comment on the breakfast experience.
