Gerangamete Retreat - contempary country getaway

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

This three bedroom house is situated on rural bush property 2hrs drive southwest of Melbourne in the Otway Ranges.

The accommodation is fitted with contemporary modern comforts including a luxury bath, wood heater (all wood supplied), split system air conditioning, fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable quiet living spaces.

This retreat lends itself to reading books and magazines or playing scrabble or crosswords, i.e. no TV.

For families, there are kid’s toys a plenty, a cubby house and rambling bush to explore. There is also a dam - great for catching yabbies, not great if you have very small runaway type children - supervision is always required.

The property is within easy reach of stunning nature walks, world class mountain bike trails, Brae restaurant and the famous Otway Fly. Apollo Bay is a 40min drive away through the beautiful Otway ranges.

For every booking we plant a native tree or shrub on the property to offset your carbon emissions in getting here.

Great location, good owners

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location, very relaxing. Property is well fitted out especially for families, the deck is a real highlight. Rod went out of his way to be helpful and respond to feedback. Great place to stay if you want to spend time in the Otways, 5 min drive to Forrest, 40min to Apollo Bay. Would consider returning.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing winter weekend. It was cold when we arrived but we quickly warmed up thanks to the fire already set and ready to go. We spent a lot of time outside relaxing around the fire pit, watching the ducks on the dam and listening to the birds in the trees.

An absolutely beautiful place to unwind and switch off from the busyness of our lives.

Such a great stay. One of the best stocked pantries I've ever seen at a holiday house. We really enjoyed having a bbq and a few wines on the deck. Would definitely stay again!

Highly Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

For a getaway to simply sit around and talk to your partner, friends etc. it's perfect. the limited phone connection meant ipads, iphones etc were off the menu and good old fashioned conversation prevailed!! Beautiful spot and scenery. 10kms from Forrest means great food available if you want to get out. The facilities are perfect, clean and comfy. Thanks for a great escape from the big bad world!!
