Fern Cottage provided a comfortable home for our three nights of peace in a beautiful forest environment. Sue is a friendly host who provided advice on arrival and then left us to enjoy our quiet, comfortable, temporary home. There is a good sized fridge, good stove and a great little electric BBQ on the balcony. We ate in each night with such a beautiful view of the forest just a little way from our windows. The balcony provided a place to just sit and reflect on life. No internet, no mobile phone, no TV - just the opportunity to read, drink a little wine, talk to each other ... We bought DVDs to play but only managed to view a couple. It seemed such a shame to focus on the screen when life was happening just outside. The bed was comfortable and the spa relaxing. We had visits from birds and loved watching the sheep with their black faces munch grass nearby. During the day we visited nearby waterfalls and walked through the giant redwoods. We drank good coffee in Apollo Bay and went to the Saturday market. We also joined all the other curious folk looking at a sleepy koala in a tree at nearby Kennett River. Like other reviewers, we want to return.
