Otways Loft: Quirky Log House
If you're in search for a quirky unique getaway, then The Otways Loft is the place for you. Nestled in the heart of the Forrest Township, the modern looking loft gives you a rustic feel, you almost feel like you're in the middle of the woods.
The Otways Loft is a sister property to the Liptrap Loft which is a part of Dufflebird, who offers holiday rentals that are unique and memorable.
The Loft was bought and renovated to have its own character; It is a labour of love built on a framework of tree poles in a triangular pattern. The interior is a mixture of parts from the train carriage, locally felled timber, materials from a nearby church, and other salvaged bits and pieces.
The two-story property can accommodate up to 8 people, with 3 bedrooms and one loft area with no door.
Apart from the tranquil surroundings, the loft is also in close proximity to a great Microbrewery and Restaurant known as the Forrest Brewing Company. It is so close that you could walk there, I highly recommend the Lamb Shanks. Another attraction close to The Loft is Lake Elizabeth.
Special Features Include: Free standing claw foot bath in master bedroom (with a lovely view over the green yard and landscape) Newly renovated bathroom Wood fired heater with wood supply included
Air con/split system in lounge room and master bedroom Dishwasher Washing machine and dryer

- Lush garden, fenced but not dog proof.
- Pets and children welcome. There is a dog run around the balcony with a doggy bed and bowls. It is fenced and gated, but not completely dog proof.
