About the property

Inthelonggrass cottage provides clean, affordable family and small group accommodation in a beautiful bush setting.

The views are outstanding, the birdlife abundant and the air as pure as you will find in the Otways.

If you are looking for a base to explore the area our cottage is ideal.

We are situated just 30 minutes from Lorne, 40 minutes from Apollo Bay

and a short drive to numerous other destinations including Lake Elizabeth,

The Otway Fly and Erskine Falls.

Having lived and worked here for over 20 years we can help you plan whatever sort of holiday you are looking for.

For those of you who enjoy mountain bike riding we are just a few minutes ride from the Yaugher trail head mountain bike tracks. The extensive network of tracks are some of the best in Australia and we have free maps available detailing the rides from beginners to advanced.

Our land backs directly on to the Otway National Park so a world of riding and walking is just a stroll away.

We offer you comfort, space, great local knowledge, peace and quiet and flexibility from as low as $90 per night.

We are an easy 2 hour drive from Melbourne and the new Geelong bypass makes the trip a breeze!

The cottage sleeps up to 6 people with a well equipped kitchen, shower, bath

and plenty of outdoor living space to enjoy the magnificent views. We also

welcome pets and have a secure pet enclosure so you can take in the sights

of the Otway National Park, knowing that your pet is safe.

Our cottage is equipped with 4 single and 1 queen bed, heating and cooling,

full size fridge, BBQ, TV, DVD, Video and Radio. All linen is supplied and

pets are welcome by arrangement.

This cottage is very basic and I never back.

  • 1 of 5

This cottage is very basic and poor condition. Around the cottage is fence and you cannot walk anywhere. The water always stop to come and TV, DVD doesn't work very good . All pillow are from a few years a go and I don't like this place. It is to expensive and NOTHING to show. I never back there any more.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy the cottage. The property is on 40 acres with access to the Otway National Park so plenty of walking. The next tenants advised us of a fault in the pump which we fixed immediately. You did not advise me of an issue. The TV and DVD are in perfect working order but some guests have trouble with changing the source from TV to DVD. The cottage is basic and the price reflects the standard of accommodation to expect. The setting and views are what people come for and enjoy. Apologies for your experience but we can’t fix what we don’t know about.

Comfortable cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at In The Long Grass Cottage! The cottage is basic but very clean and comfortable, and the hosts are lovely. The location is fantastic for exploring many of the main attractions of the Otways - incredible waterfalls, Californian Redwoods, Lake Elizabeth, Otway Fly etc, and still close enough to the coast to head down there. I'd definitely stay again.

The cabin delivered what it says it is - it is basic but with everything we needed. It was also a great place for our dog and convenient to lots of attractions, beds comfortable, shower great, and equipped kitchen. I also appreciated the privacy it offers. It suited us well for a quick get away for a few days. It was extremely cold when we were there (-2% in the morning) and with little insulation or window coverings, it was difficult to get really comfortable. So probably wouldn't recommend in extreme weather conditions. Otherwise, it is a good cheap base to explore the area.
