“lakeside sublime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

our few days passed with long walks by the lake and gentle afternoons on the porch. karbeethong effortlessly evokes a sense of the bygone world.. the rooms were sweet in an unpretentious country manner, we found the heating adequate and the managers unobtrusively present. a location and getaway that was really a balm for the soul.

It was just perfect to go back to Karbeethong lodge for a second time. Once again we experienced what is a very special place. Beautiful views, a verandah that you could sit on all day and enjoy the peace as well as a lounge area that has been decorated with a great deal of thought. Breakfast is provided and the kitchen has everything you need if you want to prepare your own meals. We will certainly go again.

Karbeethong lodge is such a unique, beautiful place to stay. We spent 5 nights there.and loved the rooms and the location, the beautiful communal kitchen with individual fridges and adjoining dining room. The main sitting room with fireplace was the ideal place to finish a day with a glass of wine and a book and the front verandah looking over the blissful lake was the best way to begin the next. Don't hesitate to book.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view at the front of the lodge or even better - the studio apartment with...

The view from here is great, and you can bring your own food and cook for yourself if you want to. The rooms are small and cold. The managers supplied electric space heaters that helped a lot, but it simply was not cozy. The big dining room was also cold and damp feeling, and the fire really did not heat the large sitting room. Internet service was erratic. One might say this place has character, but it just felt tired to us.

I found our trip to Karbeethong one of the most relaxing and peaceful holidays we've had for such a long time. The environment is outstanding, the Lodge is perfect and the managers of Karbeethong were so considered in their approach. They created a particularly seamless and sophisticated experience where we really felt at home. Can't wait to back there!

Our quilting group (9 ladies) enjoyed a weekend stay here. Even thought the weather was cold, the open fire kept us warm in the lounge, and the heater in the dining/kitchen area was efficient.
All the rooms were attractively decorated, bathrooms are basic but adequate. Our room was very cold, but asked the owners for a heater and an apology was made that one wasn't already in the room and a heater was delivered quickly.
Breakfast was lovely. Home made stewed pears and stewed prunes, a selection of cereal, yoghurt , toast, and juice. The kitchen is amazing with everything you would need to cook up a storm.
Beautiful views, lovely walking track from lodge into town. I would thoroughly recommend this place for any group stay.

Room Tip: The front rooms all have lovely views, rooms further away from the living areas would be quieter, if...
