  • Lovely location and clean property

    Lovely location and clean property. Questionable mattress in main bedroom. Strongly scented candles and incense in each room a bit overpowering.

    Bach was excellent and the new owners Darrin and Toni look to be making some great improvements. Very quiet and was wonderful for children and pets.

    Bit out of the way as described by the name of the cottage - ideal for those wanting peace and quiet with no wifi. Ideal for trout fishers - I walked down to the jetty one evening (5mins) and caught a couple of nice fish fly-fishing off the jetty. Log burning stove was nice and was prepared for lighting on our arrival. Bedding and towels adequately provided.

  • We had a delightful stay

    We had a delightful stay. The bach was well equipped and there were plenty of warm blankets. Jude met us at the bach and the fireplace was lit, warming the place up. Our young boys were excited to help feed the cows in the paddock beyond the bach and enjoyed the short walk to the lake to play in the sand. Thank you :)

    Property had character and everything you required, even the fire was set before we arrived. Nice and cosy on the cool nights!
