What some previous guests have had to say...

The Grounds Are Amazing

“Beautiful home and amazing grounds. The home is just beautiful and in winter with the fireplace and heated flooring made for a special evening of catching up with old friends. There really wasn't anything we wanted that wasn't available. The grounds are amazing and we're looking forward to booking another weekend in summer to enjoy the outdoors and the other activities the property offers. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.”

The Kitchen is a Dream…

“Stunning property to get away from it all We booked for a Christmas in July for 8 friends and it was perfect. The kitchen is a dream to cook in. The house was wonderfully warm, as was the spa and all rooms. Beautiful. Thankyou.”

A Perfect Place For Relaxing.

“We had an excellent stay at the Lakehouse. The property is extremely picturesque with its own lake and huge yard. The house itself is very comfortable with a fireplace, large bedrooms, and a massive spa. The hosts were also very thoughtful--they had the fireplace going when we got in. A perfect place for a relaxing weekend. Beware, you will not want to return to the city though”

We Will Definitely be Returning

“We received a very friendly welcome and the accommodation was lovely, just as described. Everything was clean and the burning fire very much appreciated We all felt very comfortable in our surroundings and we will definitely be returning”

Would Recommend To Everyone

“The Lakehouse and grounds are absolutely stunning and well looked after. We really made the most of the log fire, it made us feel like we were back in England Thank you so much for having us, we would recommend to everyone”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Property highly recommended Stayed here with my family and kids 9 in total and all I can say is wow!!! The place was immaculate and very well maintained and spacious. The furnishing was beautiful and the property surrounding was amazing. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and was extremely relaxed. The kids loved the animals on the farm and used the pool and tennis courts and the farm keepers were extremely friendly and even offered to show the kids the animals which really made their day. Highly recommended and will most definitely book this place again!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family escape Highlands Lakehouse was a wonderful property to enjoy our recent family escape. There were lots of things we loved about the property - heated floors made the house nice and cosy; we really enjoyed playing tennis on the tennis court; property managers Nicole, Keith & family were great - the children loved feeding the sheep and collecting eggs from the chooks; the kitchen was perfect for cooking up a feast and accommodated 10 of us very comfortably. And all within a short drive from Sydney. We would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property - highly recommend We had an amazing time at Highlands Lakehouse. We had a big group of families and everyone loved their time away. The property and house is beautiful and really well equipped. We especially enjoyed the fireplace for cold evenings and the huge kitchen that easily accommodated us all. The kids loved seeing all the animals. It's a great location - far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet yet just a short drive from all the shops and cafes at Bowral and Mittagong etc. Would highly recommend for any groups - especially families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect country getaway Enjoyed a fabulous weekend away at Highland Lakehouse with a few close girlfriends. We stayed in the main house, which was very clean, spacious and very well furnished. Each bedroom was large with views out over the property, boasting super comfy queen size upholstered beds, with quality luxury bedlinen. Although the kitchen was well equipped and large with central island, we opted to take advantage of a local catering company that came in and prepared & cooked a 5 course meal, including canapes which we enjoyed by the outdoor firepit with a drink as we watched the sun go down. It was invigorating to wake up in the morning, and see the mist over the lake slowly rise as the sun made its way through. Really loved walking around the property and meeting the resident 'farm animals' as well as local wildlife. Theres plenty to do in and around Bowral & the local villages. This property is ideal for families, or couples weekends away. I will definately be back. Thanks Sam & Victoria
