  • Gorgeous little cottage an Forrest. It is a near enough to the brewery to be a delight, but far enough not to be noisy. Also close to the chocolaterie and the bike tracks. The cottage itself is stylish and super comfy. From the cosy lounge room, to the outdoor deck overlooking the paddocks where we could relax with a glass of wine. It was lovely.

    Kate2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at the Wren’s Nest. It’s a beautiful, cosy cottage a few doors down from the Forrest Brewery (which is great). Particularly loved the fire, giant bath and back porch. Would love to come and stay again!

Fantastic location for a visit to Lake Elizabeth, 10 mins drive, we enjoyed an easy walk amongst the tall trees and ferns would highly recommend a visit to Lake Elizabeth for anyone choosing to stay at the Wrens Nest.

  • Great place to stay, quite place off the highway with everything you need, great communication and directions from Anne-Marie

    David2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Anne-Marie's place is very nice. We were the only guests (there are 3 bedrooms) so we had the place to ourselves. The house is big and the bedroom comfortable. Everything was clean. The only thing is that we originally requested another room (slightly cheaper) and Anne-Marie asked us to book this one because she had already blocked the other rooms for guests. So we were surprised when we ended up being the only ones. But, no complaints, we had a lovely stay. Money well spent.

    Pascaline2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • near A1 and the room is big. quite and comfortable

    浩昌2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in this great home that’s sparkling clean and the host was lovely, she came out to greet us and show us around. The host responded very quickly to messages and gave ample direction. The room we stayed in was well furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The shared spaces were large, clean and offered all that’s needed. Great value for money.

    Take a step back in time, to bygone era, where life was simpler, where people spent time with dignified entertainment and life seemed to have more space and time. Welcome back to the great age of Steam. The train was used as a workshop, when the original owner was building the house next door (also a Dufflebird property, Otway's Loft). In 2015 we renovated the derelict carriage to the vaguely steam-punk style holiday accommodation. It is available year round and can sleep up to 6 guests.
    When we started renovating, the carriage did not have enough intact to restore it, so we have developed our own style that is vaguely steam-punk influenced. It took nine months to renovate the train from a pretty ragged start. Almost every surface had to have something done to it, and we found that carriages were really tightly put together (all that rattling) and hard to pull apart. When we did get panels off, we had no idea what we would find. We completely stripped and rewired the electrical, and did plumbing from scratch. Renovating anything over 100 years will have its challenges, but this was exceptional. It was opened for guests in July 2015. It is still a work in progress, there is a lot more to do before it reaches our vision, but we have been astounded by it's popularity. Special features include : - Can sleep 6 but 2 or 4 would be more comfortable. See Sleeping Options below. - 3 Bedrooms. Two in a single compartment with a double compartment master bed room. Two Queen beds, two thin train singles. - Full linen service with beds made up for you on arrival. - Bathroom with shower - Open plan kitchen/living room - Wood fire box heater with wood supply included - Full small kitchen with stove, oven, sink, fridge and cupboards - WiFi - Italian Stove top coffee maker and French Press (plunger) - Basic provisions like olive oil, spices, tea, coffee, Vegemite and Glad Wrap With great regret we no longer offer the four free bikes. The expectation of having bikes in good working order was a service we could not reliably offer without living nearby and maintaining them between guests. Bring your own mountain bikes or you can hire bikes at Forrest Hire Bikes, two minutes walk away. - Pets and children welcome. The yard is fenced but a clever dog could easily escape. NO TV. There is a stereo, books and board games. There is not a washing machine, nor dryer. Steam, certainly wont be for everyone, but we have had great feedback from the young and the young at heart. There seems to be a great fondness for the "Great Age of Steam", when locomotives were king! In the late 1800's trains were the greatest technological achievement of humans, they opened new horizons, and were a symbol of power and progress. We hope we have tapped in to this, and we're excited to be able to share it with guests. If you have instagram, you can follow both our guests and our personal stays at @dufflebird_getaways
    Forrest is a gorgeous small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain forest with lush ferny under-story. The dawn birdsong is deafening. There is a lot to do around Forrest even if you are not a mountain biker. Ten Things To Do •Walk around Lake Elizabeth or take the platypus tour. •Go mountain biking on Victoria’s best trail network. With great regret we no longer offer the four free bikes. The expectation of having bikes in good working order was a service we could not reliably offer without living nearby and maintaining them between guests. Bring your own mountain bikes or you can hire bikes at Forrest Hire Bikes, two minutes walk away. •Visit Otways Fly and zip line (Longest and highest rainforest sky walk in the world ) •Bushwalk to waterfalls and Redwood Forest. (Hopetoun Falls, Triplet Falls, Beauchamp Falls, Stevenson Falls). •Forrest Historic Walk •Visit local Wineries and Berry Farms •Forrest Brewery for lunch •Forrest Guesthouse for weekend degustation lunch or dinner. •Brae Restaurant •Spoil yourself and make it a long weekend. Take the Great Ocean Road home on Monday when there is no one around.
  • A really unique and 'cool' place to stay in the lovely township of Forrest. The carriage has a lovely feel to it, lots of original features but all the mod cons you need as well. The very comfy beds with high quality bedding and the silence of the country gave us a wonderful nights sleep. We took our dog with us and he had ball. The plot isn't securely fenced yet but I believe the owners are planning do that soon. Would definitely stay there again.

    Hilary2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Steam was even better than it looked it the photos, and it was obvious a lot of thought has been put into the details of every part of the carriage. Fleur also provided a lot of local tips. Highly recommended!

    Alice2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. The mosquito is a little bit more. Always pay attention to close the door all the time. Except for that, everything is fantastic.

    Shanqi2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best, most thoughtful host I’ve ever had. From local tips to the little touches on the property, you can tell that Fleur really cares about the place and everyone that stays here. It was the perfect weekend.

    David2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Steam Carriage exceeded all of our expectations for the better, and it truly was the most fun we have ever had at an AirBnB. The original 1920s steam carriage character has been preserved beautifully, while having fully functioning modern day luxuries i.e. waterfall rain shower head, heating, a full sized gas oven & stovetop. Our favourite addition to the carriage was the firebox. Forest itself is a perfectly quant town of just 230, perfect if you wanted to get away from it all or use it as a base for the Otways & Great Ocean Road. Highly recommend Fleur for her communication, and for such a unique stay!

    Aaron2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This train carriage is full of charm. From eating breakfast outside to the nighttime games by the fire place. Not to mention such a great location. Recommended.

    Our beautiful farmstay offers accommodation for 4 guests comfortably (1 extra child or adult can be accommodated by request) in a private self contained bungalow in the Otways. Our farm is set on 16 scenic acres and is close to mountain bike trails, close to Forrest, horse riding trails and the 12 Apostles. The Old Beechy Rail Trail just a short walk away and the Otway Fly is nearby. You can mix with our animals walking around the farm or you can drive to Beech Forest see waterfalls & Redwoods.
    Our home is a Farmstay, so expect livestock. We have cows and horses and of course, our dogs who help us with our cows. We produce honey, so there are bees in bushes and flowers nearby. We also offer a Breakfast Hamper made up with some of our home produce. Ask us about what’s available for you when you arrive.
    We are on the edge of the Otway Ranges so there is lots of bush and wildlife. Lots of lovely walks and trail bike rides.
  • Clinton and Sue were amazing knowledgeable hosts, they provided directions and information about the area. Clinton was great for a chat about the interesting workings and projects of the farm. The bungalow was clean and they provided the essentials we needed which helped with the things we forgot. For people staying we would recommend some aeroguard for outdoors as there are a lot of bugs around, We would also recommend getting a breakfast hamper off Clinton and Sue as the fresh produce were delicious! loved their little dog Alfie also.

    Clint2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to switch off and just enjoy a beautiful weekend. Super friendly host (and the welcoming doggy!), very useful tips for getting around, and the proximity to beautiful walks to waterfall. Highly recommended. :)

    Nathalie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful farm, our children had so much fun seeing all of their animals.

    Gabriela2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an absolute gem between the unraveling bushland. The space is cozy and comfortable, with little touches like the little fire cooker. Alfie, the house dog, is a wonderful companion and all the animals around are sweet to meet. Sue and Clinton has been an amazing host, providing us with all the information we needed for our journey. What a great experience!

    Teddy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very interesting place,and comfortable to live in!

    Jerome2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Clinton and Sue are incredibly accomodating hosts, even when I asked him to prepare a breakfast basket at a moments notice (which was delightful)! Their place is beautifully kept and the surrounding areas are beautiful, it is a very peaceful place to stay and plenty of animals to keep you company. Alfie their dog is a 'must see' as are the miniature goats. Would happily go back. Thank you again, to you both!

    Quirky, Three storey tree house, hand crafted from local timber and vintage train carriage parts. Character rich, comfortable and FUN. The town of Forrest offers world class mountain biking. Ride in-ride out from the house. It also has some great food, coffee and a Brewery. Explore the Great Ocean Road and Otways Hinterland. Stunning waterfalls and natural attractions.
    Note: The nightly price on the top right is mid week, off peak, with a small group. AirBnB adjusts pricing with these variables. Otways Loft was specifically bought, renovated and set up for holiday accommodation, the long awaited sister property to Liptrap Loft (National winner of Peoples Choice 2014 + Romance 2013 + state winner of Outdoor Lovers 2012). It is not 5 star luxury, but we can say with confidence that it is unique. The builder lived in a shed using the train carriage as a workshop whist building the house. It is an eclectic construction built on a framework of tree poles in a triangular pattern. The interior is a mixture of train parts, local timber and salvaged materials. Every shingle over the house and train was hand cut from the forest. It was a labour of love. Forrest is set in the hinterland behind the Great Ocean Road. It is a gorgeous small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain-forest with lush ferny under-story. The dawn birdsong is deafening. There is a lot to do around Forrest even if you are not a mountain biker. Spoil yourself and make it a long weekend. Take the Great Ocean Road home on Monday when there is no one around. We scoured Victoria to find a property to match Liptrap Loft in unique character & charm. We think we have found it. There is still work to do, to get it to where we want it, but if you are not precious ;0) we think guests will enjoy the house and love Forrest. Special features include : - free standing claw foot bath in master bedroom ( with a lovely view over the green yard and landscape) - newly renovated bathroom - Wood fired heater with wood supply included - air con/split system in lounge room - Fully equipped kitchen. Oven/Stove. Dishwasher - Kitchen aid mixer. Juicer - washing machine and dryer - WiFi - Italian style stove-top coffee maker and French press (plunger) - Basic provisions like olive oil, spices, tea, coffee, Vegemite and Glad Wrap - Lush garden, fenced but not dog proof. There is a purpose built dog run on the veranda - With great regret we no longer offer the four free bikes. The expectation of having bikes in good working order was a service we could not reliably offer without living nearby and maintaining them between guests. Bring your own mountain bikes or you can hire bikes at Forrest Hire Bikes, two minutes walk away. - Piano - Pets and children welcome. BEDDING 3 bedroom (with a 4th loft/space but no door) - upstairs master bedroom with claw foot bath . King bed, that can split into 2 singles -upstairs reading room with balcony has two singles which can also be zipped together to convert to a king. -Down stairs is a third bedroom with a queen bed. -There is also a loft with a loft ladder and double futon. This is available as another bedroom for someone nimble. It is not suitable for elderly, but kids love it. Pricing includes linen. Total - 6 single beds (two of which convert to King beds), 1 queen bed and one double futon. The train carriage next door is also available for holiday rental. See the AirBnb listing: Steam Carriage In The Otways https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/7294998 The two properties can be rented together for larger groups. Together the properties can sleep up to 14 guests ( but ideal for a total of 10-12). If you have instagram, you can follow both our guests and our personal stays at @dufflebird_getaways
    Forrest was a logging town until a decade ago. Since then it has been reinvigorated as the center for mountain biking in the state. World class mountain bike trails surround the town like ski runs at a snow resort. The town is surrounded by gorgeous lush rain-forest, with massive gum trees, teeming with wildlife like kangaroos, koalas, wombats, wallaby's and echidnas. Scores of birds pass through the garden all day. Forrest is full of gorgeous birds.
  • Perfect escape and fantastic property styled beautifully.

    Ryan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place and location. House is spotless, kitchen very well stocked and very comfortably sleeps 6 adults. Would definitely stay again!

    Rebecca2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • My sisters and I had the best time at Fleur's place! Absolutely slipped into another time period while staying here. One minute we were stressed on the city highway, and next minute we were baking pies and puddings, playing the piano and watching local goats. Was especially beautiful walking to the reservoir and getting to know some locals in town. Cannot recommend enough.

    James2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful accomodation. Fleur was a fantastic and very helpful host. The amenities were lovely and clean and the kitchen was very well equiped. Very close walk to the Local store and Brewery. Overall a fantastic family holiday in beautiful Forrest.

    Nicola2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place! We had the most peaceful and relaxing stay at Fleur & Mike's. Waking up to birdsong every morning and sitting around the fire playing cards and drinking wine at night - LOVE that there is NO TV! Fabulous kitchen with everything you could need, including handy condiments like olive oil, salt & pepper, herbs & spices etc. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower cozy and the chairs on the deck lovely to relax on while the sun went down. The location is spot on with loads of lovely walks only a short distance away. The town itself is quaint and lovely. Wish we could have stayed longer than two nights but we will definitely be back and next time with friends! Highly recommend!

    Marnel2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • So beautiful! Definitely a great place to stay if you need a little get away from the city.

    Leah2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as presented on the Airbnb website. Good wifi signal. Close to all that Forrest has to offer. Peaceful with lots of bird song.

    Hana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a nice house and garden. We really loved spending our time here and would recommend staying for more than 2 days. Many beautiful places around the Otways to discover. We loved Forrest, a very calm village, a tip is to buy food on your way here since many shops and restaurants close early. The kitchen in the house is really nice! Thanks Sarah!

    Ulrika2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage, very well located with a lovely little garden, verandah, high ceilings and period features. It is clean and relaxing, really nice.

    Glenn2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • You won't regret staying at this cottage. It's beatiful and it's fully renovated. It's so peaceful.

    Gonzalo2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cottage right in the heart of Forrest. We loved being moments away from the brewery, general store and bike tracks. Sarah’s cottage was gorgeous and we loved the thoughtful touches especially the little welcome gift! A perfect place for families to discover the wonderful surrounding area.

    It's a newly-built block within 2 year.You can enjoy the piece time as well as beautiful views of house and gardens.
  • Good location, easy to drive to supermarket. The town is very beautiful, worth to stay for a while. The house is new and incredibly clean, especially compare with other Airbnbs I stayed in OZ. The host family are nice people and easy to communicate. Good location in town, worth a short stay. The location of the house is very convenient, you can drive to the supermarket in three or five minutes. The house is very new and clean, especially compared to other Airbnb. The host family is very friendly and live in peace of mind.

    Jean2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

  • I’m in two minds about recommending this place as it is so nice I want to keep it a secret. Stunning views, stylish accommodation, wood fire and exceptionally comfortable. Nicest place I’ve stayed on AirBnb and Sue gave us a very warm welcome. A must stay for anyone visiting Forest.

    Chris2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s place was amazing. It definitely exceeded our expectations and was spacious for a group of 3. It was comfortable and we were surrounded by lovely views. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Great Ocean Road.

    Elle2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sue was a lovely host. We loved the cottage, especially the cosy fireplace and great views! Highly recommended.

    Margot2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sue is an excellent host. The cottage was spotless and so spacious. The perfect ending to our day was watching the sunset on the deck with a glass of wine. The scenery was the perfect backdrop. However, the highlight of my stay was seeing a little koala in the tree beside the cottage. Such a beautiful idyllic place to spend the long weekend. Highly recommend!

    Mairead2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, in nature and with a fire place, this is your place to go! I did some yoga on the patio, with an amazing view over the valley. Highly recommended.

    Iris2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s place exceeded our expectations. Check in and out was so easy and Sue came to greet us on arrival and make sure everything was okay which was lovely. The view was spectacular! Especially watching the sunset from the deck over a wine and dinner. The kitchen and bathrooms had everything you could think of and the cottage was very spacious for two couples. Sue’s local tips were spot on and she was very easy to communicate with. Highly recommended and hope to stay again soon.

    Jenna2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s cottage was idyllically stunning! The views and ambiance were a delight, and the place made coming home at the end of the day feel comforting and warm. The kitchen is well equiped and the two ensuite bathrooms gave us that little extra space. Perfect for a couple or a couple of couples, there’s plenty of local tips to enjoy a beautiful stay in Forrest. Yaugher View was sparklingly clean as well, which just made everything feel as tranquil as the rolling hills that surround it. Sue was a wonderful host, it was lovely to briefly meet her as well. Thanks again for a lovely stay, we can’t wait to come back!

    Jordan2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Sue’s place, it was very comfortable, had all the facilities we needed and lovely rural views to enjoy while having a wine or beer at night. It made for a great base to explore the area, hire bikes in Forrest, walk Lake Elizabeth, and venture down to the coast. Would highly recommend.

    Platypi Studio overlooks native bush from a large deck with panoramic windows. The studio is next to the brand new Platypi Chocolate chocolaterie and cafe, offering the best coffee in town. We provide 2 vouchers for free coffee each day and leave artisan choccies on your pillow. Platypi Studio is modern, spacious and comfortable and is a great place to base your Otways and Great Ocean Road experience.
    If you are in Forrest for our world famous mountain biking, our architecturally-designed studio is right on the southern trail head and the brand new skills park. The Yaugher trailhead is about a 3km ride/drive. Feel like a walk through the bush? Trails start within 50 metres of the door or take a drive to the beautiful Lake Elizabeth. Stephenson's Falls is a short drive away, or use your Forrest stay as a base to explore nearby beaches (25 minutes), Trees Adventure ropes course, waterfalls, Otway Fly and even the 12 Apostles. Platypi Chocolate offers delicious all day meals and yummy delights or walk to Forrest Brewery or the Terminus Hotel for dinner. Famous restaurants Brae and Beacon Point are about 20 minutes drive away. Want to relax? Sit on the wide deck or swing in a hammock, read a book or have a snooze. Fish in the reservoir or surrounding streams. The large windows look over the bush, so even if it's raining you can enjoy our beautiful environment in warmth or sit around a blazing outdoor fire pit and admire the stars. The kitchenette includes a small oven, griller, hotplates, microwave, toaster and kettle. We supply a variety of teas and plunger coffee. This is an open plan studio with a separate modern bathroom. It is large and comfortable, but suitable for a couple only.
    There are lots of options for eating, coffee, beer and wine. The General Store has plenty of provisions, but it's not a supermarket. Everything is within around a 10 minute walk.
  • We had a great stay here. The apartment was great - the kitchen was big enough to make breakfast each morning and we enjoyed the outdoor fireplace on the cooler evening. I would recommend staying here.

    Wendy2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay. Very comfortable accommodation in a beautiful setting. Delicious coffee provided by Mandy and Michael daily at their cafe / chocolate shop next door.

What's more, he will cook you a hearty breakfast the next morning. They also have a well-designed veranda and garden. The stay was very enjoyable. Just note that for dinner you will have to drive to town.

  • Despite being late for a long time on the wrong way, we were amazed by the beautiful scenery we walked along. The safest route is directly from B100 to C155. This road is very easy to take, and the other is a very steep turn on Highway 22. The host was very good. Although we complained a lot because we were late, we felt as warm as our family. We also prepared the best breakfast we had for the trip the next day, and we really experienced the journey through the forest Feeling, especially recommended

    3 bedrooms, large full kitchen, large living/lounging space with wood burning fire, comfortable leather couches and chairs. Lots of books to read or music to listen to. Relaxing, comfortable beds with extra bedding/blankets. The house has a story to tell. Originally it was built as a large industrial shed for local furniture maker Rodney Gray. Little bits were added on here and there including a show room (which is now the kitchen) then later a bigger show room ( now the living room ) other bedrooms were tacked on as required. The house is apart of the shed however it is completely walled off. Rodney was quite a well known character about town, often referred to as “The Gray Rat” as he was rather thin and spent most of his time amongst timber shavings. He dedicated a lot of his time to community projects, one of such the famous Birregurra Weekend Festival. Sadly he ran the festival from a scooter cart as his illness was beginning to take his life, determined to see out the festival he was and with great success. He is sadly missed. If you go the Royal Mail hotel feel free to ask any of the locals there in the bar about Rod and I’m sure they’ll happily tell you all a yarn or ten!
    Across the road there is the Birregurra recreation reserve which includes football oval, cricket pitch and tennis court. A lovely stroll to the golf course. 2 blocks from the main st of Birregurra and 3 minutes drive to BRAE. 5 minutes walk to the Main Street So much to do in Birregurra and only 30 minutes drive to LORNE.
  • We absolutely loved our stay here. The house was absolutely gorgeous, very clean and tidy. Hosts were lovely and communication was fast. Would definitely stay here again :)

  • I had a great time staying at Nikky's place in Birregurra. I really enjoyed the large living space, cool objects and personal flair. You get the sense that the place is a work-in-progress but it's already good. Nikky made me feel right at home with easy check-in and check-out. Just 100 or so metres from the main Birregurra street too, so you easily walk to the local restaurants and pub.

    Welcome to Echoview @forrest_moments on instagram. Disconnect to re connect with no wifi !! An idyllic 44-ha property near Forrest, close to the Great Otway National Park and some of Victoria's premier mountain bike trails. Drive through the bush, through our farm gate and be blown away with the view. Your gorgeous little luxury mountain cattleman's hut with your own private 5-ha lake in the foreground. Breathtaking. Perfect for those craving nature and seclusion.
    Forty-four hectares of bush, lake and idyllic farmland. The rustic looking house might appear to be a mountain cattleman’s hut but it is modern and comfortable. The exterior is made almost entirely of recycled materials, including timber salvaged from wharves along the Murray River (close your eyes and just imagine the paddle steamers once tethered to this wood in years gone by). The surfaces are roughly hewn and scarred, with remnant bolts trailing orange rust steaks down the wall. There’s something enchanting about the way the aging corrugated iron and timber invokes the Australian landscape. At night in summer the house clicks and ticks as it cools down, accompanying the sound of the bird life on the lake. Inside there’s a combined living and kitchen area. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher and an old warhorse fridge and microwave, as well as all the necessary pots, pans, crockery and cutlery; all you need is a little imagination - and glass of wine, of course. Sit around the 6/8 seat dining table and invite your friends to join you. The wood heater will be set, ready to enjoy. Relax on the comfy sofa with the fire lit and the birds chirping…. let yourself drift away. Downstairs you will find two bedrooms both with queen-sized beds. The master bedroom features beautiful wooden external doors which open to views of the lake. A central bathroom with shower over bath is also downstairs. The mezzanine level above features a bedroom with two more queen-sized beds, as well as a DVD player and a selection of movies to choose from. This lake-house is made for entertaining – or just relaxing. Get busy in the kitchen and rustle up a gourmet meal to impress your guests. Or just grab a pair of binoculars (and perhaps a glass of wine!) sit on the deck and watch the bird life on the lake stretching before you.
    There are world-renowned mountain bike tracks in the forest surrounding the farm. Exploring nearby beautiful Lake Elizabeth is a delight. Look out for a platypus! But you may simply prefer to explore our own scenic property, or walk through the adjacent bushland. The boundaries of the property are the forest on one side and the river on the other. Only minutes away you will find the local pub, Forrest Brewery (restaurant), a general store/café/milk bar and a chocolate shop/café. Birregurra (25 minutes) has interesting shops and a pub as well as a regular market. There are also local wineries. The Otway Fly is about 20 minutes away and there are many local waterfalls, and of course the beach at Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road is only half an hour away!
  • Great secluded little place to get away!

    Kathryn2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We love staying at Echoview Forest. It is the perfect place for a city getaway in nature in a great vintage styled rural house. Flawless.

    Natalie2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my friends were at Ellen’s place for two days as part of our Great Ocean Road road trip and we all agreed that this ranch stay was the highlight of our trip. Dont miss them out if you are looking for one of a kind places to stay in Melbourne.

    Elin2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • It was nice to be away from everything and just have a field to yourself for a relaxing few nights away from city life.

    Kelsa2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • WOW, what a place. If you need to slow down and take a rest, this is the place. The 2 nights we stayed have been amazing. Just what we needed. Will be staying again. Highly recommended.

    Mark2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place on a gorgeous property. I can’t recommend it highly enough. The lake was a magical feature and we just soaked up the relaxing ambience. Lots of great things to do and see locally but we also just relished being able to stay on the property and have the whole space to ourselves.

    Vicki2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Echoview is one of the most spectacular and relaxing places I have ever been too. It is a truly amazing experience

    Lora2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Echoview! Stayed with 4 guests and there was more than enough space. Beautiful views to wake up to each day and thoughtful touches with styling the home. We saw kangaroos and echidnas on our walks around the property. The birdlife is also amazing. We asked to stay an extra night as we didn’t feel ready to leave, it was so peaceful and relaxing there. We had one issue with the fireplace which seemed to not be working properly, but the host Ellen was lovely and very responsive and got the caretaker to sort out a workaround solution immediately. Highly recommend, it would be a great place for families too

Birregurra is a quaint little town that’s nice to wonder in the morning. We were very happy that the Sunday market (2nd Sunday from Nov-Apr) was open when we were there too.

  • The cottage is very rustic and may need a spruce here and there, but overall is right for the price and a wonderful space. We were pleased to find the bathroom is spacious with shower over bath and washing machine facilities. The cottage itself stands fairly away from neighbours and feels private. The area is very quiet, relaxing and peaceful. The birds are very talkative in the mornings which is wonderful! The bed is exceptionally comfortable and we loved the skylight. The location is great, close to so many wonderful parts of the Otway Forest to visit. We loved our stay :) Thank you!

    Claire2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

  • We had a lovely time staying at 2 dogs retreat. Our kids (2&5yrs) had a great time playing in the outdoor space and it was very helpful that it was fenced off. Beautifully renovated and clean, we would love to stay again.

    Jamie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Get way to relax and escape the city. Spent a week at Kate's and that week went really quick. So we must of had a good time. Great open space for dogs and getting close to the outdoors, while still having a super comfy bed to sleep in and coffee in the morning.

    Mark2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing and idyllic retreat. Was perfect for our whole family (including two dogs) to recuperate after a busy year. Was a wonderful base to explore the otways, great ocean road - Apollo bay and Lorne, and also inland towns of Birregurra and Forrest. A wonderful natural part of the world. coming home to Kate’s place after days exploring was a great sanctuary with all mod cons and a beautiful vista from the expansive deck. Thanks Kate for making our stay so memorable!

    Alex2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Two Dogs Retreat was a fantastic place for our end of year wind-down. It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and work to a beautiful, serene, country house with space and fresh air. Our two dogs loved it too-with a secure fence and lots of room to run around in and explore. The back deck is perfect for that morning coffee and bbq dinners. The house is beautiful-rooms comfortable, cosy lounge and everything you need in the kitchen. We highly recommend it for any couple, family or small group. It won't disappoint! Thanks Kate.

    Jodie2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic country retreat just 20min to Colac (great Op Shop!) & 30mins or so to Skenes Creek. We just loved how well it is set up for dogs with a secure fully fenced huge yard. The tennis courts were a huge plus for our kids too. Everything has been thought of plus air conditioning was a bonus in the heat. Just note to bigger families like ours - no dishwasher. Highly recommend.

    Michael2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place, we had a lovely time at the two dogs retreat. The house and property are excellent for kids, dogs and lazy parents. A well-appointed house, with a great set-up and great views. Well, set-up for both good and bad weather, the fireplace, wifi, and Foxtel made all difference when there were a couple of miserable rainy days. The property itself is fantastic with great space for kids outside and the most dog-friendly and safe place we have stayed at. Not far away from Forest and Colac, so plenty of things to do. The beechy rail trail is only a few km away as are the mountain bike trails. We will definitely be back.

    Chamila2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Supreb, stylish and classy modern house and outdoor entertaining area. The house is very spacious, comfortable and very well decked out. Huge outdoor deck with a great dining table. The backyard is huge with an amazing outdoor fireplace and a cubby house and tree house that the kids loved to play on. The host, Kate, was very gracious and looked after our every need. The accomodation was very clean, tidy and well stocked. Beautiful, peaceful country surroundings. Loved every minute of it. I would highly recommend it and will definitely be staying there again. Thanks.
