Cabin & Lodge Accommodation
Our spacious, fully appointed cottages for two are set in a secluded area of some of the last remaining Otway Foothills bush land.
They are perfect for a romantic weekend, a mid-week getaway and as a base for day trips along the coast to Warrnambool, Port Fairy and the 12 Apostles as well as Lorne, Apollo Bay and inland to Camperdown, Red Rock and the volcano zone.
For mountain bike riders we’re a short trip through to the world renowned tracks at Forrest.
The cottages overlook the berry rows and take in the magnificent vista over the valley. The cabins are fully self-contained so you have the choice of cooking for yourself or exploring some of the area’s great eateries including Forrest Brewery, Forrest General Store or Platypii Chocolates in Forrest, Birregurra General Store, Fusion restaurant Colac, local hotels or for a real top level gourmet experience, Brae. Once COVID control requirements cease we hope to be able to again offer Katrine’s famous hamper breakfasts.
We use only our own or local produce in all our food. We grow all our own cider apples for our Crucible cider and use all our own berries in our berry gins.
Included in your stay at either of our cottages:
