We had a wonderful stay at Forest Retreat, and brought our dog with us. We were warmly welcomed by Steve, who was expecting us and showed us through our room. He is very relaxed and will leave you be unless you need anything. The room was comfortable, warm and well set-up. We had everything we needed for the weekend including breakfast, games, dvds, tea and coffee and a mini kitchen. This is a great place to go if you want a comfortable base for a busy weekend. The adjacent forest is stunning, you can walk right down to the river and have a good explore. Best of all, we could bring our dog with us to enjoy a mini-getaway. Thank you Steve and Meg, for your hospitality.

This place was a real treat. Best of all they are very dog friendly! The owners, Meg and Steve, are very accommodating and helpful. They can provide helpful tips about places to walk, to see, to eat and drink. The accomodation itself, in the Garden Room, was small but exactly the right size for a greyhound and a couple. The bathroom is well sized with a large shower that had great pressure and heat. The room had a fridge and was stocked with juice, milk and various breakfast items that were all included with the room. The bed was comfy and has a beautiful view of the garden and then of the forest across the street which has a lovely path for a dog walk to the river. I would highly recommend this for couples or solo travellers looking for a homey and private place to lay their heads. You feel like your way out of town with the view, but really you're only a short walk, and even shorter drive, away from town.

My wife and our pet had a wonderful, relaxing time at the Forest Retreat. Read-made kitchen with tea, coffee, snacks, candy, cheese, etc. Very quite location, right near a small, woodsy area. I highly recommend it for a quick retreat!

After reading great reviews I booked my husband, 7 year old and myself here for 2 nights. It's clean, cosy and well equipped. Great location and breakfast was supplied. Probably not enough for the 3 of us for 2 breakfasts (we ran out of milk and there was none of the yoghurt I'd read about in other reviews) but I'm sure our hosts would have got us more if we'd asked. Steve, one of the owners was very friendly and helpful. Will we be back? Yes!

We loved our one night stay at the forrest retreat. Hosts were lovely, room was excellent & location was perfect for bush walks and walking into Margaret River. No garden for the dogs but we take ours everywhere with su so this was no issue for us :)
