Family Accommodation

Barwon Suite and Otways Suite

The Forrest Guesthouse is owned by a family with young kids. We understand what it can be like to holiday with kids in tow. A lot of our friends and family have kids. That's why we've been working hard to make it easier for families to come and stay with us.

Sleeping Arrangements

Two of our suites can be used for family accommodation. Each has a sofa with a trundle in the lounge/dining area which comprises of two full size single mattresses which allows two kids, two teens or in fact, two adults, to sleep comfortably in full size single beds. There is also space in the main bedroom for a portacot if this is needed.

If you are a single parent, there's also the option of splitting the King bed into twin singles.

When it's bed time, you can close the glass sliding doors between the master and the lounge to keep noises to a minimum. You can also close the curtains across the doors to shut out the light.

We have also put plastic bowls and kids cutlery in these two rooms, and a high chair is available on request.

Cooking Facilities

Eating out is great - and we encourage you to try out the local options - yum! However, we understand it gets expensive if you can't cook at least some of your own meals.

The guesthouse suites are equipped with a portable induction cooktop which can be used under the rangehood. Each suite has a large frypan, a small and a large saucepan, plus a steamer. There's also a microwave, mini toaster oven, a toaster and a kettle. All your essential cooking utensils are provided, plus cooking oil. Why not try out a new one pan recipe?

The Barwon suite has two cooktops as it has more benchspace.

There is a guest BBQ under cover, out in the garden, that you are also welcome to use.

Prefer to travel light?

Leave the pram at home. Borrow ours.

Need a cot? Borrow our portacot, just bring your own sheets and blankets.

Want to go for a hike? You can hire our baby/toddler hiking backpack. It's a cracker - we even took our 2.5 yo on the Great Ocean Walk with it. It's not your standard baby carrier but is designed for serious comfort and durability.
