Take a step back in time, to bygone era, where life was simpler, where people spent time with dignified entertainment and life seemed to have more space and time. Welcome back to the great age of Steam. Steam is a Victorian era train carriage converted to a three bedroom holiday house. Forrest is a gorgeous small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain forest with lush ferny under-story. The dawn birdsong is deafening....

Additional Information

Can sleep 6 but 2 or 4 would be more comfortable. See Sleeping Options below:

It can sleep six people, but two to four would be more comfortable. The two small bed rooms were train seating compartments, only 2.1m square, so they are only just longer than a bed. The rooms are close together, the bath room is between the kids and second bedroom and there is not a lot of audio insulation. You can hear what is happening in the next compartment.

It is ideal for:
•A couple, with the whole train for themselves it is pretty spacious.
•A couple and two kids.

It should work well for:
•A couple, and up to four kids. Two kids would need to sleep in one queen bed. A great place for kids to take a friend.
•Two couples, as long as they were good friends. It would be close living.

It may work for:
•Four adults, one in each bed. The single beds are train beds, like caravan beds (750mm wide).
•Six adults would be possible, but only if you are planning to be out most of the day and out for dinner. If it a just place to sleep, it could work.

- 3 Bedrooms. Two in a single compartment with a double compartment master bed room. Two Queen beds, two thin train singles.
- Full linen service with beds made up for you on arrival.
- Bathroom with shower
- Open plan kitchen/living room
- Wood fire box heater with wood supply included
- Full small kitchen with stove, oven, sink, fridge and cupboards
- WiFi
- Italian Stove top coffee maker and French Press (plunger)
- Basic provisions like olive oil, spices, tea, coffee, Vegemite and Glad Wrap
-2 adult mountain bikes suitable for trail riding. Helmet (shared with house next door).
- Pets and children welcome. The yard is fenced but a clever dog could easily escape.

NO TV. There is a stereo, books and board games. There is not a washing machine, nor dryer.

Steam, certainly wont be for everyone, but we have had great feedback from the young and the young at heart. There seems to be a great fondness for the "Great Age of Steam", when locomotives were king! In the late 1800's trains were the greatest technological achievement of humans, they opened new horizons, and were a symbol of power and progress. We hope we have tapped in to this, and we're excited to be able to share it with guests.

I live in Anglesea with my husband and two children 17 and 14. Our busy holiday rental business is Dufflebird. Dufflebird was born out of my love of travel, weekend getaways and seeking refuge from urban life. I have always adored the buzz of an experience-rich urban life while paradoxically relished the joys of seeking refuge from it. I grew up in the country and feel nurtured and alive in nature. My favourite travel destinations are Alaska and NYC (and I have lived and worked in both). At one point I alternated between the two and absolutely loved the experience of that contrast.
