Overview

About the property

Step inside the door to the irresistible smell of fragrant candles, freshly home baked bread and quiet music playing in the background - and spoil yourself.

Slip into a luxurious, fluffy bathrobe and fill the double spa with bubbles. Pop a cork, nibble on cheese and bickies, and just sink into serenity.

Graze through the fridge and discover the sumptuous array of breakfast provisions and whip up an espresso or a cappuccino, and then snuggle up together in front of the gas log fire and watch a 3D movie on the big screen T.V.

Sprawl on the couch in the sun-filled conservatory, open the doors to meet the breeze, and just relax, kick back on the king size bed, or be pampered with a massage.

The single cottage, specially designed and surrounded by five glorious acres of manicured botanical gardens with mountain views and a private lake, is the perfect secluded getaway.

A country oasis filled with the sounds of birds instead of the sounds of traffic. Feel a world away from work yet within a short trip from Melbourne and just a 10 minute scenic drive to the top of the Dandenong's.

Stroll through the gardens and picnic amongst the kookaburras and feed the baby ducklings. At night the grounds are lit up to highlight the blossoms, the arch and swing bridges, the antique wagons and the fountain rippling the water - and you don’t have to share it with anyone.

Then wake up slowly and languish with a 12 noon checkout and amble through the roses once more before continuing on with your journey. You’re so close to so many attractions you won’t know where to begin.

Relax, unwind and remember what it is to just be the two of you!

It’s a place where time stands still.... at least for a little while.

Hidden from the world – yet within minutes of the Yarra Valley’s and Mount Dandenong’s finest restaurants, wineries and reception venues, classy tea rooms and easy country drives – you’ll find Lakeside Cottage. Described as the “most perfect, quiet and romantic accommodation destination you’ll find in picturesque surroundings” (by Eat Play Stay), you’ll marvel at the glorious setting, petal-ed with colour, as the ideal place for a marriage proposal, an anniversary, a special celebration, your wedding night, or even the night before your wedding with your bridesmaids. Consider eloping to Lakeside Cottage.

A bed and breakfast paradise only thirty minutes from Melbourne’s CBD.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my parents stay on our wedding night. They could not have enjoyed it more. The property manager made them feel so welcome and they loved every bit. Only regret was not booking for longer, or staying there ourselves. Thank you for making my parents feel so special.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alex. So pleased you both enjoyed your stay. Did you get to the markets or Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-creamery? It's a hard decision; stay indoors and enjoy the warm and serenity or catch up on some of the wonderful Yarra Valley sites. There's always next time. We look forward to seeing you again.

Beautiful

We booked the B and B for my best friend on the worlds wedding night we had bridal photos in the beautiful gardens and got some great photos on the bridge and surrounds which suited her vintage themed wedding to a tee. The cottage stay overnight made them feel very special on thier wedding night.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you got some great photos in our gardens and your fiend enjoyed her wedding night here. The vintage theme just fitted beautifully amongst the old style wagons in the property and the cars were simply stunning as well. I've had several car enthusiasts drooling over the car photos I took. We hope to see you here again to celebrate other special occasions.

Nice Property

  • 3 of 5

This property was very nice internally and very clean. We thought by the write up it was completely private and we were the only property on 5 acres. However it was a small cottage situated right next to the main residence. This was a little disappointing. But apart from that there was absolutely nothing to complain about.. The fresh bread was lovely too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Jodi, Yes, our bread is a winner with all our guests. The smell of warm bread always makes me feel like I'm on holiday. Spring is almost here and the gardens will be full of colour over the next month or two. The best time of year, I think.

Relaxing escape

Me and my partner had the most incredible time at the lakeside cottage!Kaye was very warm and welcoming, the bread that she baked was amazing!It was a surprise getaway that I had planned for my partner and he couldn't believe how luxurious and comfortable it was. The little touches like fireplace and 3D television were great, and the breakfast supplies were excellent!Highly recommend this little gem, we will go back as soon as we can :)
