A lovely time
“Stuart family (Adelaide) January 2017 – Had a lovely time, the weather was a mixed bag providing us with spectacular viewing for the great ocean road and the waterfalls. We did the Otway Fly forest walk which was fantastic and well priced provided you challenge yourself to climb to the top of the tower and walk to the end of the cantilever!! Lorne is a great drive and lovely seaside town. All in all a pleasant, central location to all the points of interest.”
A perfect retreat
“Frank Catherine Elia and Bobby (Melbourne) January 2017
Thank you for welcoming us so openly to your beautiful farm. The cottage was a perfect retreat for our family getaway, and visiting your farm was a beautiful treat for our little girl (& us). You made us feel so welcome and offered great suggestions for things to do with our dog. Glow Worms, Johanna Beach, Redwoods, Waterfalls, Food tour. All the best. “
An Otway Winter break
“Chris, Jill, Amy and Alistair. 22nd August 2016. Many thanks. It was wet and cold – just what you would expect from the Otways in winter. But the house was very warm and comfortable, just what you wanted after spending a day exploring the district. We had a wonderful time and would like to come back again. Thank you again for making our short break a wonderful experience…PS The kids survived very well without the wretched internet!..”

Experience the tranquility
“Thank you Helen and Julian. We had a wonderful time staying at your cottage. We wanted to visit the farm but unfortunately ran out of time with the forest walks, light house, otway treetop walk and glow worms. We appreciated how clean your cottage was. The Otways is a beautiful place. We live 7km from the city (Elwood, near St Kilda) so it was lovely for us (my boys) to experience the tranquility and sheer space for them to run around outside.”
