Bushwalks around Lake Elizabeth to see the platypus, the Barwon Dam, nearby waterfalls or simply relax on the deck or in front of the fire with a good book.The house is spacious with a definite retro theme to its interior. Comprising of two bedrooms, dining room, lounge room, kitchen, bathroom and separate toilet. A large balcony extends along the back of the house with comfortable lounge seating and a gas BBQ. The deck overlooks the large backyard and beyond to the hills and dam. Ducks wander up daily and many native birds nest in the trees. A fire pit and seating complete the yard and make for a great night outdoors when the weather permits.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated house is set in a stunning location. A very short walk to everything Forrest has to offer. Super clean and fantastic facilities to accommodate everyone’s needs. This place instantly makes everyone relaxed. We loved watching the ducks waddle past in the morning. Best Stayz house I’ve ever stayed in!

Perfect Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house is brilliant with plenty of space for a good sized group. Kitchen is well equipped with enough for all people and the BBQ on the back deck had plenty of gas. There's enough firewood fir the coonara heater to last a week as well!

Location was great being walking distance to the center of Forrest and the brewery.

I'll definitely use this place again next time we visit.
