This off the grid cutting in the Otway forest offers a tranquil escape for those wishing to get away from it all. Eco friendly (off the grid) gas kitchen with no mains power - this is all about simple clean living.

The space

This unique and charming light filled house with bathroom, and fully functioning kitchen is pitched at the peak of the majestic Lorne gully and offers an experience of everything that is nourishing and beautiful about nature. The forest is abundant with wildlife and features vast natural fauna. All of the water (drinking and bathing) on the property, is sourced from tanks that hold natural rain water.

Guest access

Full access to the property and surrounding walking trails. There is a TV/DVD/Media player for those rainy afternoons, or you can take a book, find a spot in the garden amongst the flowers and berries and get lost in a story, or the simple beauty of this magical forest.

Interaction with guests

You have the place to yourselves. This really is tranquility at its finest. No neighbours no interruptions. Burning fire place a glass of red or whatever takes your fancy.

Other things to note

Countless nature trails, beautiful waterfalls, lush old growth temperate rainforest and the ocean is only 10km away.

Beautiful place, surrounded by otways forest. Bring some essentials with you; like Toilet paper and garbage liners, we found it to be a bit scarce, don't want to be caught out. A great place to get away from it all and switch off the phone, drink some beers on the verandah and listen to the birds.

This place is pure magic. We spent three nights here with our dog and all three of us loved it so much. Fire place, bush walks, and glorious views (and a great bed!) this is such a magical escape. Highly recommended!

This place is great. Really secluded, you can sit on the deck with a coffee and hear absolutely nothing. Close enough to some quaint villages for supplies when you need them. It really is off the grid, so don't expect to be able to use a hairdryer or electric kettle. If you're prepared for that, it's the ideal spot for a quiet weekend.

Beautiful secluded setting set in forest with views of the sea in the distance at the end of a valley. The cottage has clever design and nice touches like the heptagonal dining area and wrap-around balconies. The house is clean and tidy and the fire provides more than enough heat for the whole cottage. Recommended for those who want to be isolated in beautiful nature for a few days. 5 stars!!

Fantastic house with all the creature comforts. We ended up staying in the house most of our weekend away, sitting by the fire and enjoying the view. Highly recommend this place

Great place, rustic and had an enjoyable stay. If u just want to zone out listen to nature, and leave the modern world for a few days then its an ideal place. Make sure u read all of Tennyson's welcome email, valuable information.

Simple things are best, feeding the senses and eliminating the unnecessary... surrounded by nature. Create warmth, satisfy hunger, feed the mind and get lost in happiness.
