House and grounds

Sweeping ocean and white water views

This unusual bed & breakfast looks out over the Great Otway National Park to the Great Southern Ocean with panoramic views to Point Roadknight, Arthur’s Seat, the Cape Schank lighthouse, and the open seas.


Cimarron was built in the late 1970s of large, hand-hewn local timbers (Mountain Ash and Messmate) with wooden pegs and ship-lap joins.

Every room features vaulted ceilings of Canadian Hemlock. Upstairs rooms are connected by balconies and an internal bridge.

The colonial style wrap-around verandah provides a shady place to sit and enjoy the view.



If you’re a reader, leave your own books at home and dive into Cimarron’s diverse collection of fiction, biography, history, nature, travel, gardening, mystery, science fiction, American Indian Studies, film, fine arts, cultural studies, and the history of science and technology. Over 3,000 volumes are available for purchase.

The grounds of Cimarron include five acres of native bush garden, bordering the Great Otway National Park. No other buildings or man-made structures can be seen from any part of this peaceful landscape.

Five species of wild parrots and cockatoos, and many other birds, as well as kangaroos, wallabies and occasionally koalas, may be seen in the grounds throughout the year.
