Skippers Cabin @ Metung

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Located in Metung, East Gippsland, Skippers Cabin is a situated across the road from Lake King which is accessed by a short walk down a nature steps/track to the water's edge. Having lived on the Mornington Peninsula, Metung reminds me of a baby Portsea, minus the busy day trippers. Sailing, boating cafes & coffee, plus the natural beauty of lakes, rivers and oceans. Skippers is a fully self contained cabin styled in Vintage/Coastal theme, with 2 bedrooms, containing 1 double and the other room has 1 double & 1 single bed. A fresh bathroom laundry and compact kitchen with electric stove and all the utensils/crockery needed to cook up a storm, or you can enjoy using the gas barbie outside, deck chairs & outdoor table. TV/DVD & CD player. You have your own privacy with plenty of car space. A short drive to Kings Cove Golf Club, & Metung Village for your essentials and a just a little further to access the many waterways that make up the fabulous East Gippsland Lakes area. Drop a line in the Tambo River, visit the Nicholson Winery & the spectacular 90 Mile Beach at Lakes Entrance. Bring your fishing rods, golf clubs, and your thongs to walk along the pebbly beach or just relax by the waters edge. There is even room at Skippers for your boat or kayak. Perfect accommodation for a Girls getaway weekend or a Golfing trip. Relax on the front deck with your favourite novel/mag while taking in the view of Lake King. Skippers has a baby chair, please BYO crib. ps: We have three vintage bikes in the garden shed - a kids bike, a racer & a mountain bike please BYO helmets, good for pedalling around the local streets. Google street view is ancient, the area on the Bluff has been transformed with road surfacing and street lighting making your stay all the more comfortable.

Comments Sep 2013

***I meant to contact you earlier to say thanks for your lovely place. We really enjoyed our weekend. Comfy bed, all the homely touches, nice sitting on the front verandah enjoying the sunshine and walking on the beach.*** Couple

***We had a great time. Very relaxing. The photos on the web don't do the place justice! We loved it. *** Family of 4

We have very much enjoyed our stay here and we thought this sail boat would fit right in with the house. We hope we can make a trip back for another holiday soon, kind regards P & V Nov 2014

Where are we?

Delightful Metung is 20 minutes drive from both Lakes Entrance & Bairnsdale, (via the Prince Highway) in the picturesque East Gippsland Lakes region located in the Eastern corner of Victoria. The Lakes are the largest inland lakes system in Australia and are renowned for their spectacular scenery. There are also picturesque villages, prolific and diverse fishing, sailing and boating, rivers, limestone caves, high country vistas and untamed wilderness to visit and enjoy. The beaches are of pure white sand with rugged coastal outcrops, remarkable diversity and mild climate. A place we call Paradise . Milder in winter than in Melbourne and moderately cooler in Summer, also known as the Riviera. Take a short road trip and visit Buchan Caves, or visit Paynesville's Raymond Island to spot the koalas, take a short drive to Lakes Entrance and enjoy a variety of cafes, restaurants and take-aways, supermarket shopping and mini golf, ice cream bars, paddle boats and boat hire, don't forget the curiosities to be found at the Shell Museum in Lakes. Lots to see and do.... just email for your booking request. Enjoy

Quirky but beautiful

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cabin, with amazing views. Plenty of space, well furnished, and highly enjoyable. Quirky decorations line the walls, but they only add to the charm. Highly recommend!

Family relaxed in style:-)

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage both inside and outside, tasteful, warm and welcomed atmosphere like staying with a friend. We enjoyed the walk to the lake to watch the sunset and picking stones and branches with our little ones. Kathryn is a helpful host who always responded our queries immediately. Highly recommended!

Great relaxing and quiet spot :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over Xmas, house is in a quiet residential area that's not built up. Was the perfect small getaway spot to have a break and rest with the family and then pop into town or Lakes Entrance for an outing.
