I forgot to say so many more things that we love about Forrest....!
Here`s the thing - though we are selling, we don`t plan on leaving town. We love this place and think it`s awesome.

For the locals watching this, what`s your favourite things about living in town? Is it our general store, the Forrest brewery or Dar Tèta? Is it Stevensons Falls on your doorstep? Lake Elizabeth? Is it the mountain bike trails? Is it the community groups getting stuff done? Is it the Neighbourhood House and everything they help our community with? ❤️

The classic Rapid Ascent event called the Otway Odyssey is coming up this weekend - and it`s the reason we ended up owning the Forrest Guesthouse in the first place! Oops!

I was just meant to be riding my bike in 2019 but it took our lives in a whole new direction! Is it time for a change in your life? I wonder who the next owners of the guesthouse will be... and will they be riding in the Odyssey this weekend? 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️

Our property is on the market! 🏠 Perfect for mountain bikers, you could establish yourselves in this amazing town while having two income streams from the restaurant and guesthouse - all while living in a comfortable 3 bed home. If you’re riding in the Otway Odyssey this weekend, think about whether it’s time for you to make the move permanently to Forrest! #RideForrest #LoveForrest #otwayodyssey #otwayodyssey2024 #treechange #mtblife #otwayranges #otwaynationalpark ...

The lush green temperate rainforest is punctuated with these stunning hyacinth orchids at the moment. So eye catching and delicate, the details up close are beautiful 😍 #otwaynationalpark #otwayranges #loveforrest #nativeflowersofaustralia #hyacinthorchid #otwayharvesttrail ...

Cracking evening at @gentleannie. Gourmet snags and chilled vibes set in the beautiful Otways hinterland. Friday evenings in January, follow Gentle Annie for details. #gentleannie #gentleannieberryfarm #otwayharvesttrail ...

BBQ nights at @gentleannie Beautiful way to spend Friday nights! @otway.harvest.trail ...

We scared each other! I walked out the back door and this guy was on the ground just metres away. I jumped from the surprise and he bolted up the tree, growling his warnings to leave him alone 😂 gladly. Happy to look from a distance. #koala #forrestguesthouse #otwayranges ...

Love to walk? Walk around the Barwon Reservoir. Walk the Forrest Loop. Walk to Stevensons falls. Walk this way. #LoveForrest #hiking #otwayranges #otwayharvesttrail ...

Merry Christmas to all! A walk in the rain is still a good walk ☔️ ...

STEVENSONS FALLS IS OPEN!! 🥳🤩😍

After a really long time being closed for redevelopment, it’s open and now has a wheelchair accessible path and platform at the falls!

There’s a new carpark, toilets, and lots more picnic tables. From the carpark, you walk to the new river crossing and then have three choices, one of which is a wheelchair accessible trail. The new boardwalk through the pines is beautiful but does have steps after the pines.

The camp ground has also been redeveloped with defined camping spots, toilets, and new fire pits.

We love what’s been done and love that people of all abilities can now visit this beautiful waterfall! #stevensonsfalls #ForrestGuesthouse

BIG NEWS! 😮🥳

This is your chance to start a new life in the Otways!

Our property is about to go to market! After 4.5 years, I’m ready for my next Otways adventure. We are keen to stay in Forrest somewhere, and I’m excited to further expand my bike hire and MTB instructing businesses, but that means it’s time to say goodbye to this beautiful property. We have loved the life that this property has given us, the opportunity to move to this amazing town would not have been possible without the guesthouse coming up for sale at the right moment for us.

The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus large study (which could also be a 4th bedroom), open plan living/dining/kitchen and a great shed. The property also includes the gorgeous Forrest Guesthouse and a restaurant leased to Dar Tèta. Everything is ready for you to start your Otways adventure.

Could you be the next caretakers of this wonderful property? If you love mountain biking, hiking, friendly small town vibes, great local eateries and work/life - sorry - work/bike balance, maybe this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for… ? 🚲

Please note: The Guesthouse is still open for bookings 😉 Property will be listed on Goodlife Real Estate shortly….

Unwind by the 🔥 Spring is perfect for an outdoor fire when the warmth fades away to a slightly more chilly evening. It’s also a great gathering spot if you’re staying with family and friends in different suites at the guesthouse. Who would you like to share this space with? #firepit #forrestguesthouse #familyholiday #loveForrest #RideForrest #forrestmtbtrails #forrestmtb #otwayranges #unwind #otwayharvesttrail @visitgreatoceanroad ...

The sea mist over the bay was STUNNING from above tonight. 😍 It was so thick while we were sailing in it that it was hard to see the bouys and pontoon from the opposite side of the harbour. #seamist #apollobay #otwayranges @greatoceanroadaustralia ...

We’ve already prepared the Forrest with two singles for our guests, but unfortunately they had to cancel last minute. Fancy a weekend in Forrest with your friend or family member? The weather is looking spesh! (And I hate making beds that might just have to get stripped if the next booking requires a King bed instead) 😉 Call 0407318507 to book! @otway.harvest.trail #RideForrest #loveForrest #otwayranges #lastminutebooking @visitgreatoceanroad ...

Gorgeous bearded irises in bloom in the guesthouse garden. Love this mix of colours against all the fresh green! #LoveForrest #ForrestGuesthouse #RideForrest #OtwayRanges #IAMOTWAYS #otwayharvesttrail ...
