 A tranquil spot close to a great range of activities or just a quiet paddle around the lake in the kyacks.

 Great location, clean and tidy. Exactly as promoted. Plenty of trout caught, lads had a great weekend. Thanks. 

The Lakehouse Retreat

 Perfect getaway and an amazing location and views right by the lake. We had a great time with the kayaks and near by hot pools. The place was comfortable and lovely, we will definitely go back. Thank you :) 

The Lakehouse Retreat

 Nice lovely bach, fully equipped and tidy; did need a bit of a wipe down though as there was a lot of dust and dead insects but perhaps people hadn't been there in a while. Location was stunning - the kayaks were a bonus! Would definitely recommend to everyone - couples, friends, and families.
