The Lake house was exactly what we were looking for for a weekend away, the house itself was easy to find and clean and tidy with a superb view as well as well equipt for all ages. Our son loved the tree house and swing and all the books on offer. The owners were kind and prompt in their

responses. 5 stars

My wife, 2 kids and I stayed for 5 days and loved our stay. The view is amazing and the house is very comfortable with great quality beds. We enjoyed the open fireplace, the spa and the swings under the deck. We hope to be back again. Thank you!

What a View

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing time here at the Lake House,

Very tranquil and what a view would had loved to have stayed longer

the bed was really comfy and had everything that we needed

the only thing was the Spa bathroom had no blinds for extra privacy at night when the lights were on

We would recommend anyone to stay here at the Lake House

Thank you John and Michelle

Peace and tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely place with an amazing view from the deck, bed and spa in the bathroom!!! Bed was super comfortable and even though the bedroom doesn't have a door we were one couple so didn't matter.

Being able to access the lake from the property was a big bonus and one morning we had the most spectacular sunrise with 2 pelicans swimming around, just magic!!

Got some lovely photos and enjoyed all the birdlife.

We really appreciated the complimentary toiletries too and the coffee pods.

Fresh flowers on the table is always a nice touch and the area is so quiet which we loved.

Lots of towels and nice bed linen too.

The deck really is the most special place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and bbq and just sit and relax and forget about the world.

A few extra steps on the steepest part of the track to the lake would be helpful.

This is a fab honeymoon spot or to rekindle romance or celebrate an anniversary.

We would definitely return to this beautiful spot and highly recommend it.

Lake House & Tree House All In One

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in The Lake House over Australia Day and the Weekend. Often, 4 days holiday doesn't feel like enough, but staying in The Lake House unwinds you instantly on the first night; allowing you to make the most of the remaining time. The vast balcony projects out into the canopy of the Lakeside Gum Trees. You're very much a part of the tree tops, giving the place an enchanting Tree House feel with the background track of the leaves and branches gently whispering and swaying in the breeze. Inside, the house has every convenience you need for a Lakeside stay. Everything works and there's ample space.

If, like us, you take everything you own that floats, including a heavy 2 person kayak. Here's a top tip: drop the Kayak off your car at the Boat Ramp along Patsys Flat Road. This is to the left of the house as you're looking out towards the lake. Its a 5 minute paddle from the boat ramp back around to the private beach access for the house. This will save you struggling with the heavy kayak down the winding and steep private beach access pathway. Once its down there, you can simply drag it into the lakeside shrub and carry just the awes back up to the house.
