“Perfect weekend with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The Lakeside Chalet is a great place to spend a weekend with friends, self catering accommodation that is comfortable and in a perfect location.
The BBQ area overlooking the lake is the best place to spend the evening.

Room Tip: All rooms were great, however the downstairs bathrooms are more modern.

My recent weekend stay in October 2013 was the third time in 4 years. It again met all expectation, as right from the time of arrival to departure, everything that I wanted to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable was found easily and of high quality, obvious that the management had put great attention to details. Its location within Beechworth was superb and without peer.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground level of the Chalet have superb views of the lake.

Dearest Edward, What can I say, but THANK YOU! We appreciate your loyalty and we bought the house so as to share those awesome views! And it is most gratifying to know how you enjoy them. We appreciate people such as yourself who appreciate the location and views. We also love the way we can welcome groups such as yourself. The house is made for that and thank you for your very kind words, as it is people like you who keep us motivated and keep "the fuel in the tank" and it is lovely to know that you appreciate the value and location. Kindest regards, H & J

A group of friends and I have been attending the Wangaratta Jazz festival for a number of years and each year we have stayed at the Lakeside Chalet. This accommodation cannot be faulted. It accommodates the entire group of five or six in great comfort. The location on the lake is picturesque and the amenities offered by the house are superb. The small touches like the ground coffee and plunger are a thoughtful addition. We have already booked again for next year which should show how delighted we are with the chalet.

Thank you for recognising the small touches! We try hard to make the home "user friendly" as we want guests not to waste time go out to shop for the small necessary items which are often not available when one goes away; ie we provide as many implements as possible and a huge array of cutlery and crockery so that your time away is streamlined. Thank you for staying here and our Bed and Breakfast, Freeman on Ford in the past. Look forward to your stay again next year. H and J

This is an excellent quality house in a great location in scenic Beechworth. Minutes walk from the centre of town. The house has all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay. We had friendly, efficient service from the owners. It can't be faulted. A great weekend away with friends. Perfect for a group of up to 6.

We are most grateful for the booking each year of this highly intelligent group. They book a year ahead the minute they leave!! They fly in each year for the Jazz festival and they are extremely neat and polite. They are what you call dream customers. We appreciate their support & professionalism. Thank you, G and crew. Hats off to a fine group of people. Sincerely, H and J

My three friends and I wanted somewhere beautiful and restful to come and stay without husbands or kids. Lakeside Chalet was all this and more. Spectacular views of the lake, walking distance to all of beautiful Beechworth's attractions. Self contained, spacious rooms with comfortable beds and little touches that make you feel looked after. Can't speak more highly of our wonderful hosts, Heidi and Jim. Fantastic, we will be back!!

Lakeside Chalet and Studio were perfect for our group bike riding weekend. Spotless, comfortable and containing everything you need to help you settle in. There is a beautiful outlook to the lake, space in and outdoors, it's close to town and the rail trail is on its doorstep. It's ideal to see the best of Beechworth and surrounds.

Dear M & B, thank you review: yes, it has the best views overlooking lake and walking tracks/bike tracks a minute away. So glad that the house was able to accommodate such a large group and it was lovely to hear such positive feedback. The house and studio together were big enough to have the 12 of you in 6 rooms with 4 bathrooms and 3 lounges. Great to hear you loved the house so much and when I spoke to you, you were so complimentary and so overwhelmed.

A very nice place to stay. The chalet was very clean with very nice bathrooms and very comfortable. We traveled to many places on our holiday and the lakeside chalet was very good but compared to others, of the same standard or better, it was a bit pricey. Having said that it has a nice view and was well appointed with great customer service.

Good to hear S that you liked the view and house. Thanks for that. I believe you were charged a one night surcharge which is $30 more if you stay one night as most bookings are a preferred two night minimum for a house. Owners often charge this surcharge as a two night minimum often allows them to cover their costs of overheads/staff costs /and running costs such as mortgages etc.If it was a two night booking, you would not have been charged this. We are glad that you enjoyed the house and we were able to help you find such a large house with great view.
