Just re-listed after kitchen and bathroom reno. Xmas Day week and some Jan dates still available.
Gorgeous, character, weatherboard cottage surrounded by palm trees with lovely lake views, about 3.5 hrs north of Sydney.

Situated in the exclusive 'point' area of Smiths Lake village, Blues Cottage was one of the first houses at the point, just a stone's throw from Amaroo Beach, the Frothy Coffee Boatshed and the boatramp. With a lovely ambience and tastefully furnished with Balinese-style and wicker furniture, Blues has open plan living with a new kitchen, polished timber floors, french doors opening onto large sunny decks and a wood combustion heater for cosy winter nights.

Sleeps up to 12 people in 5 bedrooms (7 beds). * Prices & specials are based on up to 6 adults and 6 children. Extra adults up to a max of 12 people in total incur an extra charge. Contact us for a quote.

We welcome well-behaved dogs at Blues Cottage by prior arrangement. They have the run of the back deck off the kitchen and the fully fenced back garden. At night, they can sleep in the cosy sunroom, which is covered and enclosed, We regret that dogs are not permitted in the actual house. Doggy tariff is $30 per dog per stay.


Blues Cottage is located at Smiths Lake, a small, friendly, fishing village nestled in rainforest between the Great Lakes Way and the actual lake.

Typically bypassed by holidaymakers headed for the better-known Blueys and Boomerang beaches at Pacific Palms, Smiths Lake is an oasis of peace, tranquility and birdlife, especially right down by the lake, which is bordered by the Sandbar and the ocean on one side and unspoilt rainforest and national park on all other sides.

The few houses that do have lake frontage tend to be set well back and camouflaged by the trees. Smiths Lake is an easy 3.25 hours drive from Sydney's Northern Beaches up the Pacific Highway, 25 minutes South of Forster and 10 minutes North of Seal Rocks.

Local Attractions

Blues Cottage is located in a quiet, peaceful laneway with no through-traffic, surrounded by palm trees. It's in the exclusive 'Point area' of Smiths Lake right near the boatramp and Frothy Coffee Boatshed. It's a lovely spot just to unwind, read a book or go for a walk.

Amaroo beach, a small sandy beach on the lake offering safe swimming for children (the size of the beach varies depending on lake height!) and a grass reserve with swings and climbing frame is just a stone's throw from the house. You can fish, waterski or row on the lake and the Frothy Coffee Boatshed overlooking the lake (open to 4pm most days) serves delicious light lunches, coffee, cakes and icecreams.

There are great surf beaches at Sandbar, just 5 mins drive from Blues, with lovely bushwalking and a golf course, or a few extra minutes up the road at Pacific Palms you'll find Blueys, Boomerang and Elizabeth Beach (a quieter, patrolled beach backed by National Park). There are some nice cafes on the way to Pacific Palms or at Blueys beach village.

Wallis Lake is just North of Pacific Palms and Seal Rocks village, lighthouse and beach are 20 minutes or so South of Blues Cottage.


Rated 2 out of 5 by from Room for Improvement Smith Lake is a lovely place. Blues is in a great spot but we were disappointed with the cleanliness and non functioning downstairs bathroom/ toilet and bedroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location. Smiths lake is literally 30 seconds away. We had a great time kayaking in the lake and ended up at the sand bar. Local shops are close by for necessities and Forster's not too far away for larger supermarkets. The house is very quaint with A LOT of room. The kitchen could maybe do with a renovation but did the job fine with no hitches. There were 4 couples in our group and had an amazing time. Plenty of room for each couple to have their own space and great communal areas to spend time together. Great holiday house.
