The Boat House is located 3hrs north of Sydney on the shores of Smiths Lake , one of only 4 houses IN THE MOST DESIRABLE POSITION directly opposite a WHITE SANDY BEACH.

It is part of a small COASTAL VILLAGE in a beautiful, UNSPOILT,rural, forested area known as The Great Lakes which includes STUNNING SURFING BEACHES, lakes and National Parks and is 20 minutes south of Forster.

This is a rare COASTAL location where the forest meets the sea and offers a real SEACHANGE experience with no highrise or unit developments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a truly wonderful holiday at The Boat House. The house was so comfortable it felt like home. We particlarly enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and glorious views. With very small children it's sometimes difficult to find a holiday where you can relax, but at The Boat House every little detail was so well thought out, the barrier at the top and bottom of the stairs was a lifesaver! We all enjoyed swimming in the lake and having a drink at the 'Frothy Coffee'. Thank you Barbara, we hope to be back again very soon.
