More Palace than Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Waterside Cottage has set the bar high for any future stays! The most beautifully renovated property - attention to detail is sublime. Incredibly well equipped - the owners have thought of everything! Beautiful basket of goodies and fresh eggs for breakfast. Situated on the lake with an easy 15 min walk to town. We were so sad to leave. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again -Thankyou:)

Owner's Response: What a great review, Lorraine, thank you so much. We love having guests to stay, and really try to make them feel welcome. The walk home from the Main Street is easier than the walk up, but a great walk, nevertheless. We would love to have you stay again soon, Cheers Jenny and Tony

A very comfortable and quiet cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Waterside Cottage and recommend it to others without hesitation. The cottage has fantastic views of the lake and is well located - only a short stroll to the Boathouse cafe and just step out the back and you are on the walking track around the lake. It is is located in a quiet area, is very well equipped, comfortable and lacks nothing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review, David. Love to have you back again at Waterside Cottage. We have tried to think of everything needed for a comfortable stay in a Miners cottage, but that view is fantastic, isn't it?
