The location of this establishment is beautifully isolated yet only 3 km from the village of Forrest. Although very chilly outside, our room was heated and provided a comfortable start for our couple of days in the area. We were there to dine at a top restaurant in Birregurra. Carol kindly arranged a taxi to take us there and when...

It's always good to know our B&B guests enjoyed their stay at Forrest River Valley. Forrest is a great base for exploring the Otways- close to Lake Elizabeth ( with our resident platypus community) the spectacular Stevensons Falls, West Barwon Reservoir, state-of-the-art mountain bike trails and the best eating places in the region!!

Give it up for Bob and Carol! They have managed to create a private oasis for guests in their home. The scenery is amazing, the rooms make you feel at home and breakfast is great! If you're attached to your wifi probably don't stay in Forrest anyway but not all telecom providers work in Forrest. But in the welcome pack...

What a great experience, from the booking to the farewell. Carol & Bob were perfect hosts...you knew they were there if you needed them but not in you face at all. The accommodation was lovely, clean, quiet with a garden full of birds and out of town. Breakfasts are served in you room, and come on time, well preapred and...

We stayed for two nights during the June long weekend so that we could go and do some walks to Lake Elizabeth and a few of the other falls around the area. The room was immaculate with stunning views. It was so quiet. The breakfasts were to die for, with plenty of choice. The owners are such lovely people. Will...

We can't thank our hosts enough; we had some motoring issues which they helped us with graciously. The facilities are excellent and there are tonnes of little extras which are very kind. The breakfast (to order) was delicious and cooked to a high standard. Our hosts were helpful yet gave us space and were very professional. The room was spotlessly...

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely B&B and had a most enjoyable and peaceful stay. It is just out of Forrest township, about 3kms and easy to get to. The room was very spacious and included a comfortable couch where you could sit and look out on the lovely garden as well as beautiful rural views. There is a...

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. There is a lot to see and do around our small town located in the Otway Ranges, with the world-class mountain bike trails on our doorstep; the spectacular waterfalls and bush walks just a short drive away.

The rooms that are large and tastefully decorated have very comfortable beds and a large balcony with a fantastic view over the garden and the valley. (A hammock would finish it off) The breakfast was very good. The owners were nice and helpful. If you like mountainbiking and tramping this is a great place to stay. If you want to...

We stayed here as we were dining at Brae Restaurant about half an hour away. The B&B is part of the owners house. They were very accommodating yet not intrusive. Welcomed you to their B&B, should you to your room and left you to do your own thing. They arrive with a lovely hot breakfast in the morning at the...
