Rated 5 out of 5 by from good time had by all! my 6 friends and I had a great time at this place last month. It has everything you could want for a holiday house when there is a few couples looking for a laid back experience with all the creature comforts. It is very big (on two levels) with the most spectacular views of the lake. the living and entertainment areas are very comfortable and modern and tastefully decorated, too. the kitchen has all the things you need to put together a top meal but there are plenty of good alternatives if you want to eat out locally. the entertainment area on the ground floor has a big TV with comfortable couches and in the giant rumpus room there is a billiard table, a table tennis table and darts and a library with stacks of good books, we tried them all with varying success. but something for everyone. the outside decks are big as well and you can eat outside with BBQ if you prefer, we did and it worked really well. A top location and a top holiday home all round. highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Base for Birthday with Buddies My wife and I chose Ski Cove for our 30th birthday weekend (Friday to Sunday) with 13 friends in early March. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to bake cakes, scones and muffins, and has a breathtaking view over the Lake. On the Saturday we had no need to leave the house, except for a quick errand run to the local servo to get some extra fuel for the motor boat. There's plenty to keep people entertained - with a beach area on the Lake shore, nice water to play in, kayaks for exploring and motorboat with fishing lines, veranda areas which are great for relaxing and reading, pool, darts and table tennis, very comfy lounge areas too for evening games and the spa & sauna which were fun to use. We really would highly recommend this place - the entire group loved it! Service was great - no problems whatsoever.
