COME FOR THE OCEAN, ESCAPE TO THE WOODS.
Tucked away on over an acre of secluded bushland, our self-contained cabins offer stylish and relaxed accommodation in central Ocean Grove, just a few minutes drive from the shopping strip and beach.
With its light and bright décor, the second of our cabins is a fresh and fun space for a couple, group of friends or small family. With a queen bed, single bed and pull-out trundle this cabin can sleep up to four guests. It is a studio space and the beds are all in the same room - there are not separate bedrooms.
The kitchenette has everything you need for breakfast or a basic meal; with a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery, tea, coffee and milk.
A dining table with seating for four is just the space to set up a laptop, spread out with the papers or linger over a drop of wine, perhaps from a nearby winery which are among the many local sights. The space also comes equipped with a TV and DVD player.
The clean and bright ensuite bathroom is separate from the main room and includes a shower, toilet and vanity. No need to pack towels, soap or a hairdryer; they are all provided for you.
The verandah has a beautiful view of the native garden, huge gum trees and tennis court. Perch on the stools at the bar and listen to the calls of the bush with your morning coffee. This is the closest you’ll get to a home among the gum trees.
After a day exploring our local wineries, golf courses, shops and beaches, unwind as you nestle in underneath the gum trees at The Woods. With use of facilities including swimming pool, spa, tennis court, bikes, pitch and putt golf green, BBQ and alfresco eating area, you’ll be laughing along with the kookaburras as the sun sets for another day on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Also check out our listing and 50+ five-star reviews for Cabin One which is perfect for a couple.
The Woods is ideal for couples, girls’ weekends or a small family getaway.

Please note that the outdoor facilities are shared with guests staying in both of the cabins. The Woods only sleeps six people in total across both cabins, so it never feels crowded.
We live on the other side of the property and our small family of three also uses the pool and spa, but we always give guests privacy when swimming.
The pool and spa opening hours are 10am - 6pm, unless otherwise arranged.
Ocean Grove is small enough to spot roadside stalls selling giant homegrown zucchinis, fresh flowers and buckets of lemons, but there’s enough going on that you won’t have to search far from our Ocean Grove bush cabins for things to do
