About the property

Escape, relax and unwind in 'Somerset on King'.

'Somerset on King' is conveniently located close to Coronation Hall &, with two bathrooms, makes getting ready for weddings there so much easier! Unfortunately, the property is not suitable for children under 12years - bookings will not be accepted for children under 12. (Please do not ask as refusal may offend.)

Our two storey holiday home offers 3 bedrooms (QS beds) so bookings are strictly limited to 6 persons only (extras are not permitted). With open living spaces, air conditioning & a fireplace, outdoor decks and undercover entertainment areas, the home is furnished with a delightful mix of vintage, antique and contemporary pieces. Share quality time with loved ones and friends, chill out or make it your base to explore the Brisbane Valley and stunning Lake Somerset region.

We love our neighbours & our home & therefore NO parties are permitted. In fact, out of respect for our neighbours, no loud music or noisy behaviour after midnight will be tolerated.

Breaches of these requirements will affect return of your Security Bond.

In this stunning slice of the world, you can be as active or as lazy as you wish - curl up on a couch, read a book, watch a movie or take a two minute stroll from your holiday retreat to the free tennis courts on the banks of the Stanley River.

Our local general store provides general provisions, a relaxing coffee spot & meals if your getaway doesn't included home cooking :)

Just a 5 minute drive from the village will take you to Lake Somerset where you may enjoy the free facilities which include picnic tables, gas BBQ and protected swimming area.

Launch your ski boat for a stimulating adrenaline rush. Or bring a canoe, kayak or fishing boat to explore Lake Somerset and the picturesque river.

Don't forget your camera as the wildlife in the area is abundant. Somerset Dam Village and surrounding district is the habitat for koalas, kangaroos, possums and wild deer, plus a spectacular range of native birds, colourful parrots and eagles.

Three rural towns are nearby to Somerset Dam Village:

* Esk and Kilcoy offer supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, newsagents, pubs, antique shops, cafes, art galleries, weekend markets, plus golf courses that are open to the public.

* Toogoolawah is home to the International Drop Zone Parachute Centre where you can witness displays, experience a tandem jump or further your parachuting skills.

If horse racing is an interest, both Esk & Kilcoy have country races throughout the year.

Mobile phone reception in the village is limited to Telstra subscribers. However, we offer free WiFi and a public phone box is 100m away on King Street.

Off road parking is available in the driveway and (down the lane) at the back of the house. Boats may be parked in front of the house. King Street is wide and most people park their boats in front of their homes. The back driveway provides ideal access to the house for those wishing to avoid stairs.

‘Somerset on King’ provides all bed linen and towels, a fully equipped kitchen & basic pantry requirements. Just BYO your food, drinks, picnic gear, beach towels... and Rest, Relax, Explore, Enjoy!

** The house is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Somerset on king the house was set up very well the beds extremely comfortable, it was exactly as described and the booking process was very simple.

The air conditioning and fans were already on when we arrived so the house was nice and cool which was a plus in this hot weather. overall one of the nicest houses we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone and will definitely be re booking for a trip next year.
