Excellent venue making for a great trip.

  • 5 of 5

Coming to Eildon for 35 years on our annual trip. This property was great and had everything that are group needed. Plenty of room for sleeping, billard table and large inside and outside tables were sensational. The decking area was the highlight, with the bird life and views of the lake. Have made plans for a return stay.

Excellent Family Boating Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at this property on 5 occasions! Feels like our home away from home! Owner is great to deal with and everything necessary to make a great family holiday is conveniently available there. Great view of the lake from the back balcony too which is enjoyed with the parrots, cockies and kookaburras. Yes we even see kangaroos hopping across the grass down below.

Perfect Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with this accommodation. We were 2 couples travelling with an 18 month old and a 10 month old and found this place to be perfect. The view from the deck was stunning and was a great spot in general.
