Buchanan Rest is a miners cottage located in the beautiful town of Beech Forest. It is within one hour of some of the most spectacular coast Australia has to offer. From the fishing town of Apollo Bay through to Cape Otway lightstation, Johanna Beach with its famous surf breaks and on to the 12 apostles and Port Campbell. You can plan your short day trips and explore the coast from this private base. If ocean views get too much relax at home and enjoy the spectacular rural view from your verandah which takes you some 300kms away to the Grampians. Stroll to the local cafe for brunch and then take in some of the waterfalls all within a few kilometres of town. The cottage boasts an undercover BBQ area and all facilities to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic and diverse place for holiday A gateway to the Ottway forest and parks and in the middle of a very friendly community, we had a great time visiting parks, boutique breweries, wineries, and the coast. All very pet friendly. Enjoyed dinner at the local pub. lovely owner. Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great place to stay. We found the address with no problem.The setting is peaceful. The cottage has everything you could wish for. We spent a very cold evening sitting in front of the wood burning fire (lots of wood and kindling provided). I have requests from the family to return which I am sure we shall do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cottage was comfortable and the location was quiet, with a lovely outlook. However, the directions to the property were not clear at all which was frustrating after driving all day. Secondly, the DVD player was impossible to fathom. We turned to books, music and games, which were readily available. The local cafes are excellent.
