Step in to Spring at Forest Rise

The Best of Both Worlds
Of all the seasons for a special getaway or a romantic mini-holiday, springtime is the most beautiful. The calendar year may begin in January, but it is spring when Mother Nature begins her annual life cycle with a burst of colourful wildflowers and the renewal of wildlife.
And nowhere is that more evident than at Forest Rise Chalets and Lodge, in the heart of the Margaret River wine region. Forest Rise caters to individual couples, households, and small groups seeking a back-to-nature adventure while enjoying 4.5 to 5 star accommodation.
Our Eco-Friendly Accommodation
Nestled in amongst Australia’s finest tall timbers, outstanding beaches, and premium award-winning wineries, Forest Rise epitomises privacy, luxury, and natural beauty. Forest Rise is ideally situated on 240 acres of wide open bushlands. But, despite all of this open land, there are only 10 private chalets and one executive style lodge ever in use at one time. Your private rammed-earth forest chalet, wood framed lake chalet, or executive lodge was exclusively designed to blend into the surrounding scenery on the outside and to accommodate you with luxury elegance on the inside.
Personalised pampering, a hallmark of Forest Rise pride, begins before you arrive and never stops. While you rarely see the dedicated staff that supports your comfort and privacy, they are on call 24/7. At Forest Rise, there is no standing in line at a check-in counter. Upon arrival, you are directed to your individual residence that has been meticulously prepared for your retreat. When you enter your accommodation, you’ll be greeted with a welcoming hamper filled with wines, cheeses, and other delicacies from the area’s finest merchants. If you start to feel like a VIP, that is because at Forest Rise every guest is a VIP.
The beauty within your chalet was created to meet the highest standards of luxury and convenience. The high, open-beam ceiling structure enhances the spacious, open air, floor plan. There is a supply of pre-cut wood outside your door for those cozy moments in front of your indoor wood fire. Relax in your bathroom spa, sip a glass of bubbly from a local winery, and enjoy the heavenly view through the clear-glass, sky ceiling. You can pamper yourself with massage and spa treatments
Get Back to Nature
Want to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer? Step outside, relax on your private verandah, and breathe in the fragrance of fresh blooming wildflowers, listen to the symphony of birds chirping, and watch the parade of hopping kangaroos teaching their newborn joeys about life in the bush. You can explore the scenery on your complimentary mountain bikes, take hikes through the forest, or venture over to the lake and jetty at the edge of the forest.
Spring is a particularly good time to visit as the wildflowers and birdlife are thriving.
Surrounded By an Abundance of Attractions
At Forest Rise, there is never a reason to leave the property unless you want to take in the local attractions. With more than 100 of the country’s finest wineries, there is always a cornucopia of wine tasting opportunities. There are an endless variety of food festivals, tourist galleries, mini breweries, and produce markets for Margaret River’s own cheeses and chocolates.
Outdoor activities abound with coastal surfing, strolling on the beach, fishing for snapper, or exploring the underground wonders of Jewel Cave, an ancient cavern filled with awe-inspiring stalactites, growing down from the ceiling, and stalagmites, growing up from the floor. And, if the mood strikes you, you might thoroughly enjoy a whale watching tour. Forest Rise is perfectly situated in the middle of everything Mother Nature has to offer, and you can enjoy it all during the day and still return to your opulent retreat at the end of the day.
Enjoy your exclusive retreat with someone special, or share the adventure with another couple. There are one and two bedroom chalets and the executive lodge has two separate bedrooms.
