The Bootmakers Cottage sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms: 2 Queen bedrooms and a third bedroom with 2 King single beds. It offers a small lounge and small kitchen, but makes up living space with the workshop and stage.
There is a small indoor rustic bathroom with a handmade corrugated iron shower. Throughout the house you can see the builders craftsmanship with the wood panelled walls and other ornate carpentry. Colonial windows overlook a sun-kissed rear courtyard with an iron bathtub to let you bathe al fresco. While the living space inside is fairly compact, the courtyard space is expansive.
Set on a quarter of an acre, it feels spacious out back, but if you step out the front door, it’s a bit of a surprise to be right in the historic main street, complete with bakery, cafe’s, antiques and local wine and produce stores.
Four separate buildings frame a paved quadrangle and fire pit that demands outdoor living by day, stargazing and chilling ghost stories after dark.
There is even an outdoor toilet block to revive the tradition of the outdoor dunny………just no red back spiders hiding behind the cistern. It includes a second shower.
Enjoy an outdoor bubble bath. Or simply lay back in the hammock under the dappled light of the oak tree.
Kick off your shoes. Crack open a cold one at the bar.
From the bar, push through to a second lounge room complete with games and a projector for movies. Challenge the kids to a game of fuzz ball.
The roofed bandstand is available for functions.
The rest of the time it’s a third lounge, even if it’s raining.
The Bootmakers Cottage is available for functions up to 150 people. Contact us for more info.

G’day. Banjo here.
Always up for a trip to the beach, me. And I just can’t wait till I can get my humans out on another one of their hunts for Great Ocean Road Pet Friendly Accommodation. Man, I tell you, they’ve found some beauties down there. From the Pet Friendly Accommodation on the Great Ocean Road in Torquay nearly all the way to Warrnambool, this road just goes on forever! Have you seen those whales way down there – not sure what the humans see in those big lumps in the sea – I’m never allowed to go and check them out! Great place for checking out the Pet friendly accommodation on the Great Ocean Road there though, they say.

GREAT OCEAN ROAD PET FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION Off to explore the best Pet Friendly Accommodation on the Great Ocean Road along the coast! What coast, you ask? The Great Ocean Road of course! Where else would you want to go? I don’t know why we don’t just live there. My humans and I head down every chance we get – they love to surf. Me, I bite waves. They just keep coming at ya! Tiring though. Mum’s always on the lookout for some great Great Ocean Road Pet Friendly Accommodation, so we can stay longer. Coz HEY – they wouldn’t leave me behind! Besides, I look so great in all the Insta posts! Sometimes it’s cottages, sometimes B&B’s. We even take the tent and camp in one of the caravan parks right over the dunes from the beach! We’ve all got our favourite Pet Friendly Accommodation on the Great Ocean Road picks – me, I go for the ones with the big dog beds and home made treats! Just sayin’. There are some amazing Dog Friendly Accommodation on the Great Ocean Road – holiday homes & apartments that are just great for checking out the surf from the balcony while you wait for the snags to cook on the barbie. Did I mention snags? Where was I? Oh yeah – cruising down the coast, stopping into Wye River for a drink and explore. On to Skenes Creek and Apollo Bay – where I am allowed into the pub too! Even got my picture on the wall of fame there! The Great Ocean Road Dog Friendly Accommodation down there is SWEET. And just up the road, Paradise! Heading on down to mooch around at Cape Otway (those koalas are just too high up the trees to be that interesting), and on to the 12 Apostles. Funny right – twelve! I can only see about five. Whatever. Then down to our latest find on Great Ocean Road Pet Friendly Accommodation at Port Campbell. Only minutes from the best ice cream in the world at Timboon – did I mention they have special ice cream for dogs???? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
OTWAYS HINTERLAND PET FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION – More and more people are traveling with their beloved dogs. We get that absolutely…lots of dog lovers here in the Otways Hinterland! After all, our pets are as much a part of the family as everyone else – right? The Otways Hinterland offers a wealth of truly pet friendly accommodation and visitor experiences. While much of the hinterland is covered by National Park, there is also plenty of State Park where dogs are welcome. Many of our cafes, wineries and other great experiences are pet friendly – in fact, you may well find an enthusiastic four-legged welcoming committee at quite a number of them! Bringing your dog along can add a bit of complication to a great holiday…unless of course you can find accommodation which is genuinely pet friendly. Good thing you have found yourself here then, as there are many such sensational places of dog loving retreat here in the Otways Hinterland Pet friendly accommodation. Bush land cottages and cabins, rural and township based bed and breakfasts, apartments and villas and more are spread across the hinterland. So much better to enjoy a break away with the entire family. WOOF. I think Banjo agrees.
