The Retro Retreat is a self-contained holiday house in the heart of Forrest. It is close to the Southern MTB Trailhead (100 metres) and a short stroll to the Forrest Brewery, Guesthouse and General Store making it the perfect location for a mountainbikers weekend away. For those not into biking there are plenty of other options. Bushwalks around Lake Elizabeth to see the platypus, the Barwon Dam, nearby waterfalls or simply relax on the deck or in front of the fire with a good book.The house is spacious with a definite retro theme to its interior. Comprising of two bedrooms, dining room, lounge room, kitchen, bathroom and separate toilet. A large balcony extends along the back of the house with comfortable lounge seating and a gas BBQ. The deck overlooks the large backyard and beyond to the hills and dam. Ducks wander up daily and many native birds nest in the trees. A fire pit and seating complete the yard and make for a great night outdoors when the weather permits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real retreat We loved our stay at the Retro Retreat. The house is well laid out and very comfortable. If you plan to cook, you'll find the kitchen particularly well equipped. Not pictured in the profile is the spectacular landscape that the house looks onto, which was a lovely surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a great time! We had a lovely time at the Retro Retreat. Great location, within walking distance to the Brewery, pub and some lovely little cafes. Loved sitting around the fire in the yard, and enjoyed beautiful walks and rides in the area. Owner, Geraldine, was incredibly kind and accommodating, kindly allowing us to bring our dog, and even offering for us to stay an extra night for free when I left my laptop there and had to drive all the way back from Melbourne! The house was clean and tidy and had everything we needed to make our stay lovely and cosy.
