The adorable cottages were like vacation homes with private balconies and courtyards.Kayaks and Bikes were available but we chose a safe and beautiful walk into town. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms completely clean and armed with plenty of towels and toiletries, and the...

Wow what a great place! We had a romantic three days in the studio with a small courtyard and jacuzzi. The local wine is great and the owner supplies a lavender bubble bath. Shirt walk to the lake. It remains me if the old days when travel was simpler.

Did 2 nights here. Ate in one night and got fish and chips the next, both times sat in the sweet little private garden we had. Fully equipped and very very clean. Owners have only been in a year and are doing well. Lilly was lovely too!

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the clean and comfortable unit with everything we needed. It is well located for a walk to nearby restaurants, and trips to local attractions. Very helpful hosts who gave us good advice on places to visit nearby. There are numerous options to visit in town or within an hours drive. We were very...

Our cottage was clean, comfortable and everything we needed was there - and more. Sonia and Michael have thought of everything. They were so welcoming and gave us heaps of useful information on the area. We would definitely stay there again. If Sonia had been in charge of the weather that would have been perfect too!

Lovely little motel on the shore of the lake. Was really nice to have access to laundry facilities. Didn't get a chance to take advantage of the bikes and kayaks, but nice that those are offered. Cute cat.

Great location, through a walkway to the lakefront and walking path along lake edge. The room was clean and tidy and very comfortable. We had a spa bath which was great with lavender bath lotion supplied - a lovely touch. Upstairs was a lounge with views to the lake. Very friendly management. Highly recommend and would stay again.
