About the property

Welcome to De Vine Getaway at Lake Eildon. Located only a 2 hour drive from Melbourne, approximately 140km from the CBD.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy all Lake Eildon has to offer from tranquil walks through Fraser National Park admiring the wildlife to water skiing, fishing and boating on the lake. If you fancy some adventure, discover the many 4WD and motorbike tracks surrounding Eildon.

- The Accommodation -

De Vine boasts a fully renovated home with modern open plan living. Floor to ceiling windows provide uninterrupted views overlooking the treetop ranges of Lake Eildon.

Spacious fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, laundry facilities, 3 bedrooms plus a study/bedroom, sleeping up to 11 people with plenty of living area space to wind down.

The home is fully furnished for your enjoyment. We also provide entertainment including board games, a large selection of DVD's and cards to add to the enjoyment of your stay.

Mobile service in Taylor Bay can be poor, so we also offer FREE WIFI for your use during your stay.

- Accessing The Lake -

Accessing the lake is easy from De Vine as the house backs on to the lake. There is also a private jetty for your personal use, great for fishing swimming or boat mooring.

If you plan on launching a boat from the back of the house, we recommend using a 4WD only. Depending on the water level of the lake, the public boat ramp only a short 10 minute drive away. The property also features plenty of room to park your boat trailer.

Also available at the property is a luxury pontoon cruise boat seating up to 10 people which you can hire at an additional cost. No boat license is required.

Sam and Pauline were able to accommodate our very last minute request for a long weekend here and we couldn't have had a more relaxing time! Great location and access to the lake , beautiful views and a well equipped, comfortable house. It was hard to leave and we'll definitely be coming back !

Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous few days at De Vine in Eildon during the July school holidays. The house was superb. The owners Sam & Pauline were very helpful, it was lovely to have the open fire going upon arrival. The house was very comfy and had ample space for our family. Lovely memories. Thanks guys.

We had a great long weekend at your lovely house.

Very relaxing with an array of local wildlife to hand feed from the balcony.

Owners Pauline and Sam most helpful for any questions.

Fire burning and house toasty warm when we arrived which was great, Sam even helped put our boat in with his 4WD which was much appreciated.

Huge functional living spaces and kitchen.

A 10/10 stay for us.

A relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

De Vine has a very relaxing ambience, with wide views of the treetops and glimpses of the lake. There was plenty of space for the whole family and many opportunities for enjoyment for every age group, from skimming stones to painting the bush and to lake expeditions. Thank you for a lovely week to remember

Girls weekend away at DeVine, house is amazing, extremely well stocked with all essentials, views are fantastic. The owner had put fire on for us for our arrival which we really appreciated, and brought wood up close to the house. Free wifi did not work for any of us, but none of us with Telstra so not sure if that has anything to do with it. The only other thing I think the property needs is a compendium and only for little things eg the trick to get TV working, key required to dispose of rubbish, and perhaps for some local information for out of town tourists. eg Courtesy bus from Rubicon hotel in Thornton that you can book and it will pick you up & take you home again. trout farms, boat ramps, eateries etc. All these things are minor and not criticisms but things to think about to assist future guests. Thank you again, we had a great, peaceful & relaxing time
