Goldsmiths in the Forest is a Couples Only Bed and Breakfast Retreat, where we do all the cooking for you...there are no guest cooking facilities because you simply won't need them.

  • A Romantic Couples retreat, a space to relax with bubbles on the deck or a twilight spa.
  • A place for all seasons with nearby Lakes Entrance and 90 mile beach to sail, swim and fish for summer.
  • A wood fire for winter evenings, after a day out cycling, walking or exploring.


    This Bed and Breakfast offering is our signature experience, and all house guests get to enjoy our own unique Australian version of the traditional English B & B which includes overnight in one of our beautiful guestrooms, a delicious afternoon welcome tea on arrival and a fully cooked breakfast in the morning.

    We thrive on being the perfect hosts and one of us being a chef, we thoroughly enjoy preparing the d
    elicacies of home baked cakes and master chef inspired meals for you. The inclusion of a San Marino espresso machine, also ensures you that for coffee lovers, there is a coffee on offer all day. We also boast a fine selection of teas from black, and herbal to fruit combinations.

      Our Lyrebirds

      Watch out for our glorious selection of native birds as you sit forest side on the relaxing deck. If you are fortunate on your visit you are sure to get a glimpse of the Superb Lyrebird - they do frequent the East Gippsland forest, and visit the property's pond below the deck on most evenings. 

      Over 100 species of birds also share this amazing habitat and live and feed throughout the covenanted property on the native plants in the garden around the B&B accommodation.

      Goldsmith's in the Forest Retreat is a unique destination set on 28 hectares of covenanted forest, a nature lovers dream, great for bird photographers.
