This boutique accommodation has it all. 

In the middle of the bush in Robe, you’ll find Stony Rise Lodge — the latest and greatest place to stay on the Limestone Coast. Seemingly out of nowhere, you’ll come across the sprawling grounds of the immaculate infinity lawn and the stunning Lodge that’s been built with no expense spared. It’s not far from the beautiful beaches of Little Dip Conservation Park and it’s the perfect spot for an intimate family, group or special occasion gathering. Plus, it’s dog friendly!

The delightful hosts are there to help you every step of the way. “We shop, cook, tidy, book experiences, pack, drive and organise. We can keep it simple or dial it up to fancy — it’s your choice. We’re on site 24/7; there when you need us and out of sight when you don’t,” says Lodge Manager, Alice Dufty.

If you’re staying for an occasion, you can work with the team to plan a special dinner. “We can call on our chef and sommelier friends, as we work with you “to design the perfect menu — from a relaxed evening on the lawn, to a cosy candlelit dinner in the Lodge”.

Designed to capture the sunrise and sunset each day, Stony Rise Lodge has been thoughtfully positioned to let in the sea breeze in summer, or stay toasty warm with underfloor heating and an open fire in winter.

There are four guest rooms plus a library, each with its own generous ensuite and an outdoor lounge. Split into four main spaces (sleeping, lounging, dining and the infinity lawn) there’s plenty of room for up to 10 people to run wild.

Every single detail has been considered with Lodge-supplied iPads that control the sound system, smart TVs, a stocked library and wi-fi throughout. You’ll also get access to the on-site four-wheel drive car and driver, who’s also the ideal person to offer updates on the surf or the weather.

The beautiful bar is always stocked to carry on the Lea family tradition of ‘sundowners’. Running on an honesty system, you can bring your own drinks or help yourself to the range of local wines, mixers, soft drinks or soda water on tap for a bubbly refreshment. Then, enjoy a drink out on the infinity lawn as you watch the fiery sunset.


For owner Rebekah Rosser, Stony Rise Lodge is more than a boutique accommodation. “It was built on the back paddock of our family’s farm. It was always my dad’s dream to build a house there. And while he unfortunately didn’t see it come to life, his love of pottery and art is reflected throughout. We also had the home designed by our cousin, John Lea. It was built lovingly by locals, in the hope that our guests love Robe as much as we do”.

Stony Rise Lodge feels special for so many reasons — mostly because it was created by a family with lived experience on the land, who want to share its beauty far and wide.
