Situated in one of the most picturesque locations "Howqua on the Hill" is located in Howqua Inlet (Mount Buller side of Eildon Lake) with spectacular views of the surrounding High Country. This home has everything you need for your family and friends to have an amazing country getaway.

The views from the house are absolutely amazing, you can sit on the large balcony, enjoy the lake and surrounding mountains, entertain or just sit back, relax and enjoy everything Howqua Inlet has to offer.

Kitchen, lounge room with a wood fire, dining table, bathroom and a separate toilet, 3 bedrooms. 2 of the rooms have queens size beds and the third bedroom has a double size bed and set of bunks. There is also a separate laundry.

There is so much to do in the area. Fishing, 4W driving, motorbike riding, snow skiing, swimming, mountain bike riding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, bush walking, golf, or you can check out wineries and the sites of Mansfield and the High Country. Of course you can also just sit back, read a book in front of the wood fire or sit out in the sun on the deck, with or without a glass of wine. There are lots of books for you to read while you are enjoying your relaxing getaway as well as lots of DVD’s to watch on the large flat screen TV.

Howqua Inlet is 40 minutes from Mt Buller and 15 minutes from the Mansfield Township where you will find fantastic cafes and shops to please everyone. If fishing is your thing there is the Lake and three rivers the Howqua, Jamieson and Goulburn Rivers. If adrenaline is your thing there are countless 4W drive and motor bike tracks.

If you forget to take anything there is a caravan park just a short 2 klm drive or Mansfield is 15 minutes away.

The lake (when up) is just opposite the house and is a breeze to get to where you can set up for the day with all your family and friends. Only locals generally use this area so it is never overly busy... which is great.


We have three queen, one king, two doubles and three single beds, there is also a single fold up bed available in one of the bedrooms downstairs as well as a pull out couch to sleep another two people. The property can sleep 12 people comfortably.

Nice property in a nicer location!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 and the house is big enough to accommodate all of us without any difficulty. The view is good with the lake in front and hills at the backdrop. The house is fully equipped with all basic amenities. The only flip side for us was that the 2 floors were connected externally through stairs. Mobile signal was only available on Telstra phones but the house has NBN broadband so no connectivity issues.

Perfect Location and views

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for 12 people, we had 6 adults and 6 children and there was enough room for everyone with comfort. Also the view of the lake was phenomenal! The ability to have an open fire was also a bonus. The only thing we were missing was a boat.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 12 and had a lovely stay.

The house has everything you need and is not far from Mt Buller.

Only tip I could give is don't use the house for late night parties.

It is a peaceful and quiet residential area, so enjoy it for what it is.
