Maeburn Cottages - Selfcontained Lakeside Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage


About the property

Where else in the world can you visit the skifields and national parks on one day and fish by the beach and play a round of golf the next ? Maeburn Cottages in Metung.

Whether you require relaxation and privacy, a business retreat, a romantic

getaway, family holiday or a boating / fishing / golfing trip, or a one night stopover, Maeburn Cottages has it all ! The ideal lakeside country retreat for couples, families, friends and large groups of up to 20. Enjoy a GREAT stay in beautiful Metung all year round.

Maeburn Cottages are located a short stroll to the pristine waters of Lake King in Metung, an up-market fishing village on the spectacular Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, which form the largest inland waters in Australia.

Local shops in Metung Village include a general store, pharmacy depot, post office, information centre, realestates, gift shops, boutique clothing, pub, takeaway pizzaria, gourmet restaurants and cafes. Weekend farmers market on the Village Green once a month. 20 min to Lakes Entrance and Bairnsdale for shopping and entertainment.

The property is set in an acre of established gardens, amidst native trees that play home to a large number of rare bird species. Indeed, twitchers can enjoy identifying more than 130 varieties of birdlife. The luxury self-catering family-style holiday cottages are positioned for privacy and offer quality furnishings throughout with your comfort in mind, plenty of adjacent parking with ample room for the boat and trailer. Each cottage has a ramp for easy wheelchair access. Maeburn's country retreat truly is a home away from home. We offer our guests the option of bringing their own linen (sheets, pillowcases and towels) for a saving of $10 per person.

The Lakes promote numerous water sports, such as, sailing regattas, boating, fishing competitions (e.g. The Bream Classic), kayaking, windsurfing and jet skiing. Other outdoor pursuits include, hiking, skiing, 4wd, bush walking, and Golf. We are just around the corner from the prestigious Ted Parslow architect designed resort-style Kings Cove Golf Course (visitors welcome) and 2 hours from the snow (Mt Hotham)

Take a relaxing stroll with your pooch along the scenic beach.

Beautiful pet friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

My Golden Retriever and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maeburn cottages. Although it was a short stay, we were able to relax and rejuvenate before continuing our roadtrip.

The cottage was clean, comfy, and nestled in a lovely yard full of birds and trees.

Dorothy, the owner, was extremely lovely and welcoming.

I recommend staying here 100% :)

Comfortable and fabulous location....

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at Maeburn. Our cottage was spacious and well appointed. Cottage 1 is the original home and is situated at the front of the property with the morning sun hitting a lovely front deck. The deck is enclosed and a great place for our dogs to be kept securely. Our dogs were allowed inside which is important to us. A two minute walk to the river road provides a lovely stroll into Metung Village where we enjoyed brunch and dinner one night. Dorothy was very responsive to any questions we had throughout our planning and stay. Thank you.
