The Lakes House
This house has been a home for over 150 years, and is ready for the next 150. It will comfortably look after 1-8 people, in all weathers, and all seasons.
There are two fire places and many couches. This is a place for those who like a fire and a good book.
A long sunroom overlooks the lake at one end, and looks over to the Bridgewater Caves at the other. This is a place for watching the earth turn and the day unfold.
Two contemporary bathrooms and simple laundry facilities take care of all domestic needs. The kitchen is generous in size and outlook you can be cooking up a storm while watching one blow over from the bay.
From the door, walking trails lead through the garden, up the hills, around the lake or beyond to the coastal and national parks in the area. There are safe beaches, surf beaches and dramatic cliff top walks for the more adventurous. This is a place where wildness is accessible.
At each days end, four solid stone walls and new beds will ensure that sleep is sound. This is a place to re-connect with the natural world, breathe deeply and recharge the batteries.

Fantastic place to stay
Fabulous location for a relaxing time away. Great facilities and very comfortable
Thanks for your rating Andy! So glad you enjoyed and relaxed!!!
What a beauty
We stayed four nights at this wonderful house and it was so amazing. The views were to die for, the house so cosy. All the amenities you could ask for were provided from kitchen to bedroom. The bed was so comfy and snug.
We really loved being there and will return. Highly, highly recommended.
Hey Sally thank you sooo much for your lovely review!! It warms our hearts to know that we can share this beautiful homestead and location with others, and that it is so very much appreciated!!
Fantastic location. Sensational Views
Excellent location and views out over Bridgewater Lakes. Plenty of space around the property for the kids. Beautiful homestead. Excellent and comfortable bedding. Well furnished with a very homely and warm feel. Enjoyed the stay and had a great day waterskiing on the lake which is right next door. Will be back for sure.
Thanks Patrick, so glad you and family enjoyed our comfy house and surrounds!!
Had a lovely time there with the family very relaxing time
Glad that you had a quiet, relaxing time in our homestead Greta.
Perfect place to relax
A most beautiful historic homestead, carefully renovated. We loved the mixture of historic parts and modern interiors. A perfect place to relax and even a rainy day didn't bother us in this charming atmosphere. We loved to spent hours in the kitchen or sitting in the most comfortable living room in front of the wood fires. We experienced the passion of the owners for this wonderful house and place. Thanks to the owners for their great hospitality and support to organize this stay from Europe. We recommend this place to all those, who are looking for a tranquil and beautiful place in a most wonderful part of Victoria with great view over the lakes. After 4 days we were really sad that we had to leave.
Liebe Rosa und Stefan, We are so happy that you appreciated all that the Lakes House and surrounds has to offer! It is indeed a special place for us, both because of it's history and also because of the beautiful, tranquil country side and coastline the house is nestled into. Gruessen von Australia!
Delightful, historic property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully presented and spacious historic home in what is one of the most delightful parts of coastal western Victoria. Our only suggestion is that the water pressure for the bathrooms needs some improvement.
