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.
“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.”
The Brewers Cottage is a 100 year old fully refurbished woodcutters cottage which has a comfortable contemporary interior with modern finishings. The Cottage has 2 bedrooms with good quality linen and everything you might need. There is a beautiful little, cool, shady green garden and verandah for relaxing. With a great location in the centre of town the accommodation is perfect for those who want access to the Forrest mountain bike trail heads, walking tracks and a cold beer at The Brewery.
“This little cottage is such a dream! Perfectly located next door to Forrest's brewery and across the road from the gorgeous General Store, we had the loveliest stay in the heart of town. Beds are comfy, the shower is so good with great water pressure and the fireplace was nice and cosy. Beautiful light-filled lounge and deck are perfect for a morning cup of tea. Everything has been really well considered and you'll find everything you need here. Close to the Forrest Loop Walk and a short drive from the must-do Stevensons Falls. Highly recommend!”
Do you have a constant case of the Mondays and a bout of Insta overload? "The Wrens Nest" in Forrest Victoria is calling you! The perfect mix of all that's required to truly unwind and get that soul filling fix! Whether you're in need of a little isolation, a warm fire place and a good book... Or you're chasing a good adventure and a dose of adrenaline in this mountain bike riding mecca- This unique and visually delightful cottage is the perfect place to call home for a few days.
“It felt like a cosy home away from home. We enjoyed sitting out on the back verandah looking at the lovely landscape and resident koala. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some delicious meals. We enjoyed the nice big spa bath. The beds are two king single that join into a queen/king size, but we didn't notice the split at all- it was super comfy. Theres a safe place to park the car. There is a brewery and little local store nearby, however these weren't open during our stay, but they looked like they would be cute to visit. I would highly recommend this place- particularly for 2 couples to enjoy a quiet and cosy weekend together.”
