This freshly renovated cottage offers idyllic accommodation for up to six people, or a romantic getaway for two.

The spacious living area and large outdoor decks overlook the waters of Lake Macquarie. Inside, polished floors and a log fire promise relaxing days and cosy evenings.

There is excellent fishing, swimming and boating from the private jetty, and the restaurants and clubs of Lake Macquarie are close at hand.

All bedrooms and living areas open onto the deck and have outstanding 180 degree views over the water.

The cottage is set among shade trees on its own absolute waterfront property. Landscaped gardens and a private grassy lawn to the water's edge offer privacy and tranquility.

The air conditioned cottage has two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living area with polished timber floors, large timber decks with a gas barbecue, and a private deep water jetty with mooring facilities. Free Wi-Fi, surf-skis and lifejackets are provided.

The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the second bedroom can be made up for two single beds or one king-size bed. Please note that bed-linen and bath-linen are not provided.

The living room has a double sofabed which packs away neatly during the day.

In winter, the log fire will be laid ready for you to light, and firewood will be re-stocked for you during your stay.

Please note that as the cottage is set on the waterfront, the path from to gate slopes down toward to front door. If you or your guests have mobility issues, please feel free to call us to determine whether this will pose a problem.

The cottage has off-street parking for two vehicles, TV and DVD, laundry & ironing facilities, and a split-system air-conditioner for year-round comfort.

Beautiful Lake Views

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage on the lake. So peaceful waking up early in the morning to the bird life and the lovely lake views. Hosts Margaret and Keith were great, and we will definitely be back.

Great views of the lake

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a fantastic location and great lake views. However we found the property to be dusty and needs a good thorough clean. (bad place to say if you have dust allergies), The beds, blankets are dirty with hairs stains and looks like it has not been washed in a long time. Overall it was pretty relaxing and an enjoyable lake house.

Owner's Response: Hello Kappy. I am so sorry you've had this bad experience. We recently have changed our cleaning company and I will speak to them and make sure the property is properly cleaned, and ensure the blankets are washed regularly. We'll be checking personally to see that this is done. If you can give me any further details please feel free to contact me at the usual email address. Margaret

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in a great location on the lake near the lake entrance ensuring great water quality. It has good a jetty with good mooring options, boat shed for storage and a very nice bit of water front. The cottage is very comfortable, neat and tide with everything you need. Great deck and barbie area with stunning veiws of the lake and for-shore. There is a small nature reserved next door situated right on the point of fishing point and the cabin is situated perfectly to ensure privacy. The owners are very helpfull and easy to deal with. Simply you will not do better with regard to value for money. We will definitely be staying again. This place is perect.
