Finest heritage surroundings, beach-side location, extensive secluded formal gardens, and special breakfasts prepared in our commercial kitchen. The ambiance of a Grand European Country House...
A multi-award winning Country House B&B retreat...
Nestled in the secluded gardens and 100 year-old oak trees of the historic Glen Isla Homestead (circa 1870), award winning Glen Isla House provides a tranquil retreat for discerning travellers.
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 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.
Glen Isla is close driving distance from the Phillip Island Nature Park (little penguins and koalas) - 10 mins drive.. Nearby also to wineries, pristine surf and swimming beaches and the Grand Prix Circuit.
Chef-inspired special cooked breakfast served at individual tables in the restaurant-style dining room for B&B guests. We have a resident professional chef.
The Gate Cottage is offered on a self-cater cottage/room only tariff basis for guests to provision and prepare their own meals in the fully equipped kitchen of the Gate Cottage should they wish to do so, or to utilise the many cafes and restaurants in nearby Cowes.
