Two Dog's Retreat is a 4 acre lifestyle property situated just minutes' from the township of Forrest, under two hours' drive to Melbourne and twenty minutes to Colac. The area is the gateway to the Great Otway National Park and is within easy reach of the stunning coastal towns of Apollo Bay and Lorne. This unique and sustainable three bedroom, two bathroom property can be used for private residence, as a weekender or continue making the most of the income generated through Stayz and AirBnB receiving a steady stream of bookings year round. Pack your bags and bring your beloved pets too! The owners have fenced the property to keep your precious pets safe yet still giving them plenty of room to run around and explore the acreage.
Created to make the most of the indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the large north facing hardwood decking provides the perfect place to soak up the morning and afternoon sun and the take in the tranquillity of the bush setting. After an afternoon enjoying the great outdoors you can jump in the outdoor shower and rinse off without stepping foot inside the house! The house was built in 2014 and comprises three bedrooms all with robes, a modern bathroom in black and white hues and well equipped kitchen with gas (bottle) cooktop and electric oven. Views from the kitchen sink capture the surrounding countryside across to the Otway Ranges. The open plan kitchen and living room is the hub of the home and kept comfortable by the split system heating and cooling but the real beauty and ambience comes from the Nectre wood heater. What's a country retreat without a fireplace?! Stepping outside to the firepit area you can also enjoy a drink or toast some marshmallows around the fire with friends and family. Storage is provided by the European laundry and two shipping containers located onsite.
