Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace and tranquillity This is a really lovely place with an amazing view from the deck, bed and spa in the bathroom!!! Bed was super comfortable and even though the bedroom doesn't have a door we were one couple so didn't matter. Being able to access the lake from the property was a big bonus and one morning we had the most spectacular sunrise with 2 pelicans swimming around, just magic!! Got some lovely photos and enjoyed all the birdlife. We really appreciated the complimentary toiletries too and the coffee pods. Fresh flowers on the table is always a nice touch and the area is so quiet which we loved. Lots of towels and nice bed linen too. The deck really is the most special place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and bbq and just sit and relax and forget about the world. A few extra steps on the steepest part of the track to the lake would be helpful. This is a fab honeymoon spot or to rekindle romance or celebrate an anniversary. We would definitely return to this beautiful spot and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lake House & Tree House All In One We had a fantastic time staying in The Lake House over Australia Day and the Weekend. Often, 4 days holiday doesn't feel like enough, but staying in The Lake House unwinds you instantly on the first night; allowing you to make the most of the remaining time. The vast balcony projects out into the canopy of the Lakeside Gum Trees. You're very much a part of the tree tops, giving the place an enchanting Tree House feel with the background track of the leaves and branches gently whispering and swaying in the breeze. Inside, the house has every convenience you need for a Lakeside stay. Everything works and there's ample space. If, like us, you take everything you own that floats, including a heavy 2 person kayak. Here's a top tip: drop the Kayak off your car at the Boat Ramp along Patsys Flat Road. This is to the left of the house as you're looking out towards the lake. Its a 5 minute paddle from the boat ramp back around to the private beach access for the house. This will save you struggling with the heavy kayak down the winding and steep private beach access pathway. Once its down there, you can simply drag it into the lakeside shrub and carry just the awes back up to the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panoramic views and beautifully appointed property What a fantastic holiday house, the views are overwhelmingly beautiful and overlook the the east side of the lake, sandbar and ocean. You can hear waves crashing in the distance as you unwind on the large sundeck surrounded by azure blue water and abundant bird life. There are so many wonderful features about the Lake House, and John and Michelle go above and beyond to make your stay special with lovely touches like fresh local flowers and quality soaps, moisturisers and a coffee machine with complimentary coffee pods. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is catered for and the furniture and linen are all new and speak quality. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 kids aged 6 and nearly 2 years old. There is ample room for everyone and the added bonus of a separate downstairs studio with an undercover veranda and kids cubby house and play area made the property very versatile and exciting for our kids. We made use of the rainforest jacuzzi every day and this was a big hit!.There is also a great selection of books, DVD's and kids toys to entertain everyone. Private access to the lake is steep and possibly too difficult if you're under 3 or over 60 years old. Otherwise it's only a 3 minute walk well worth the adventure because when you get down there, there is a private lakeside sandy beach perfectly safe for kids, swimming, picnics, fishing or walking. At night we went for a discovery walk down to the lake with a torch and hundreds of school prawns were attracted to the light, if only we'd had a scoop we could have easily caught a feed of prawns from the shoreline! The lake is teaming with fish, you're guaranteed to catch something if you try. Our friend who was staying with us brought his canoe and within one hour had caught 2 massive whiting and 2 flounders. We stayed 6 nights and it definitely was not long enough to enjoy all the features that the Lake House and Smiths Lake has to offer. We really loved that the house almost opened completely up onto the deck giving that indoor/outdoor living vibe and the sunrises from the deck are mind-blowing. The overall atmosphere of the house is magical, it's extremely tranquil and you can't help but be in awe of the view. We will definitely be returning, thanks for a very memorable holiday.
