This absolute waterfront retreat is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the serene views of Lake Macquarie from your own balcony. The perfect getaway for either a family, with it's proximity to the lake, beaches & large yard or a romantic getaway for two.
Lakes Edge Cottage is a 2 Bedroom double storey absolute waterfront property which is newly renovated and furnished. Drive through the garage for access to the water's edge.
A fully self-contained cottage with BBQ & outdoor setting on large balcony and master bedroom overlooking lake. Additional downstairs bathroom with washing machine & dryer.
The Cottage sleeps up to 6 people and is ideal for either 2 couples or a family:
Bedroom 1: 1 Queen size bed
Bedroom 2: Double bed bunk (sleeps 3) + 1 single bed + pull-out single trundle bed.…
For a larger group such as 2 families (or sleeping quarters for the kids), there is also a secluded self-contained boathouse available for rental which is located only 1 metre from the lake's edge & about 70 metres in front of the cottage. The Boathouse is also available to rent individually and suits either a couple or small family. Note that the Boathouse is required to be rented in conjunction with the Cottage during the High Season. Please enquire as to the availability + pricing, as discounts will be offered for combined booking of the Cottage and Boathouse.
Located on the eastern side of Lake Macquarie & only 1 hour drive north from the start of the F3 at Wahroonga, you will be able to enjoy all these activities:
- Beaches: 3 minutes drive to Catherine Hill Bay
- Fishing: cast a line from the backyard!
- Table tennis (located downstairs)
- Visit the Hunter for some wine tasting
- Kids swing & climbing outdoor play equipment
- Dining: go for a casual lunch at Catho Pub, new Caves Hotel or neighbouring restaurants at Rafferty's Resort (2 minute drive) or....just kick back & relax with a BBQ on the balcony as you watch the sunset over the lake.
- Boating (tie up at the water's edge in the back yard)
...& for those necessities, there is a local corner shop within walking distance (along the lake's edge), or take a 7 minute drive to Swansea to a supermarket & more restaurants.
The location is beautiful - just perfect. We tied our boat up in the back yard and enjoyed coming and going at our leisure. The home is beautifully decorated, well appointed and a pleasure to stay in. Watch out for the kookaburras when you're eating breakfast! Rebecca. Rating: 55
Suits families with it's play equipment, table tennis table & shallow banks of the lakes edge. Also suits those couples wishing to escape the hectic pace of city life.
