My husband and I came away to Cloudlake for some together time. The setting lent itself to a spot of cool weather, holed up in this very sweet cottage (Boathouse) we cooked up a treat, sat by the fire, sipped wine, watched the lake and walked the tracks. Love it! A thoughtful, peaceful and enchanting place.

Thanks so much 'Yummy Stay" for taking the time to let us know that Cloudlake was just perfect for your time away together. It is good to leave technology behind for just a little while and really connect again to each other. Hope we will see you again someday but stay chilled out in the meantime. More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the boathouse for our 6th Anniversary. It was a perfect relaxing getaway from our busy lives. The open plan house looking out over the dam was very tranquil, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment we needed to cook up a feast and the surrounding property was beautiful. We would be back... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to tell us how much you enjoyed your time at Cloudlake. Especially happy to know that you could find everything you needed in the kitchen to 'cook up a feast' We have deliberately included all kinds of kitchen gear as well as the gas cooktop with wok burner and fan forced oven plus...

My fiancé and I stayed in the Boathouse for our 3 year anniversary and as soon as we got there, we could feel our stress melting away. We loved everything about it and neither of us wanted to leave. Dudley visited us a couple of times, so did the ducks. We even nicknamed one of them 'The David Beckham Duck'... More

My husband & I, as well as my mother, thoroughly enjoyed our time at 'Mother of Ducks' at Cloudlake! So peaceful & relaxing! Lovely country accommodation, with front and side veranda to enjoy! Loved feeding the ducks, canoeing on the lake, hearing and seeing the various birds! One of the many king parrots came within a metre of us! A... More

We stayed in 'The Boathouse', a purpose-built modern building with a steeply pitched roof and open-plan layout. This is ideal for a couple but might be a bit cosy for more as the spare bed is perched on an open mezzanine above the kitchen and there's little privacy available. The interior has been decorated with boating and fishing knick-knacks and... More

My partner and i recently stayed at Cloudlake for a weekend away. It was truly amazing. At night the only sounds are the frogs by the lake and by day it is all kinds of birds, no traffic, phones or dogs that you hear living in town! We had ducks come and visit us for breakfast and Dudley the staffy... More

My wife and I have stayed at Cloudlake once a year for the past 4 years or so. It is worth the drive from Sydney to spend time at this delightful rural retreat. There are two cottages for rent, each with a quite different character—the modern "Boathouse" and the retro "Mother of Ducks". Both provided delightful and well-equiped accommodation. Both... More

We went to Cloudlake for our first anniversary, and we came home refreshed, rejuvinated, and wanting to go back! The cabin was lovely. The kitchen was fully self-contained, with everything you could need, and we enjoyed taking the time to cook ourselves proper meals (no convenience, pre-packaged food for a change!) and the fireplace was a treat! Very reasonable price... More

We went to Cloudlake for some time to ourselves after the Christmas madness and we discovered a beautiful hidden valley with the most amazing treats in store for us. Birds singing constantly, a rainforest on the property to walk through (escorted by Dudley, the most amazing dog, who made sure we got home safely). Gardens, a lake with ducks and... More
