Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ski Cove House was excellent We have just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay at Smith's Lake and I thought it would be good to give you our impression of Ski Cove House. I'm happy to report we found it a gem of a place to stay. We were greeted on arrival by a friendly an helpful Kate who showed us around and explained all the "ins" and "outs" of the place. Apart from the truly exceptional view, that hits you as soon as you walk upstairs, we were impressed with how well and comfortably furnished the whole place is. Big sofas to sink into, and lots and lots of open SPACE. A couple of nights were a bit chilly but we opted for air conditioning rather than the fireplace because it was easier for us to just set and forget the temperature at 23. I was in charge of most of the meals and I thought the kitchen worked really well and the adjoining dining area took 8 of us for a sit down meal without a problem . My husband had a couple of opportunities to BBQ (at my suggestion) and cooked up a storm on the deck with the BBQ Sleeping accommodation upstairs was a marvellous with 3 generous sized bedrooms upstairs (the one with the ensuite and T.V was luckily ours) and for the others, there was a bathroom and separate toilet. There are another 3 bedrooms downstairs, one with bun beds for kids, where some of our friends stayed for a couple of nights again with their own bathroom. Did I mention lots of SPACE we all enjoyed the TV room (some of us more than others). One of the many things we liked about Ski Cove House was the entertainment options we had. The full size games room complete with table tennis, darts and mini snooker, is perfect for rainy days of which we only had one thank goodness. The spa on the deck and the nearby sauna was a new experience for us which we all enjoyed. There was even a runabout with a motor for us to use if we wanted to, but we did not get around to it on this occasion All in all, we really enjoyed the laid back and relaxed atmosphere of Ski Cove House . It was Immaculately presented, as comfortable as can be, and perfect for us and our friends as a holiday place with spectacular views of Smith's Lake . We will be back . Count on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Holiday House My family and I had a fantastic week here. There were 16 of us and it was quite comfortable for this many people. The setting was great, loved sitting on the deck overlooking the lake early in the morning with a cup of tea. The furnishings were adequate and comfortable.. The pool table, the books, the spa were nice extras. The lake was great for everyone, shallow enough for the kids to enjoy it safely. I could say lots more but really it was a great place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It ! My extended family and I just returned from a stay at Ski Cove House and loved it. We had a great time with the water craft and the views from the spa are spectacular. Everything was as we expected it to be and it was easy to cook up huge meals for us all as the kitchen was very well equipped. It is furnished beautifully from top to bottom. Thanks for everything we cant wait to return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not stay again We stayed here nearly a year ago. Am looking for a new family holiday house, this came up in my search and I noticed the reviews. I cant say I am shocked that some of the problems we had are still occurring. Although it was a nice enough house with a lovely view, we did have a few issues and had to contact the property manager a few times. Just some of the issues from memory we had are listed below. We were spoken to abruptly and were basically accused for the bed being broken (someone must have been jumping on it). Spa not working (it was empty and we asked if we could fill it as there were no instructions, we were informed it was already full and we said it was empty when we arrived and she would not believe us) The TV kept turning off (the kids must have touched it) etc For a short family weekend away you should not have to make multiple phone calls to address so many problems and be spoken and treated so poorly. -One of the bunk beds were broken, not safe enough for my children to sleep on, they had to share the trundle bed. -Missing game parts -No proper pool cues -Spa not working (a person was called to fix it but was unable to) -Toaster broken (a new one was bought to us which was good but we were happy to just use the oven) -Tv stopped working multiple times -Leaking roof (there was a big storm, this was just unfortunate) -Downstairs in winter with no heating was very cold
