Also 1 sofa bed in main family room

Fly fishing club outing sleep up to 8.

Main family room has kitchenette with gas stove top-sink and cupboards with crockery for 8 -microwave.

A gas BBQ is situated outside on the landing over the water.

Open fireplace for cosy fires in the winter or when its cold- allows you to cook toast and marsh mellows or boil a billy- just like everybody did in times past.

Wood for the fire is accessible from a port in the wall next to the fire.

TV and piano for those who can play Main room opens on to the landing where you can sit and enjoy the scenery or if you are fishing you can have a go at tying your own flies. CAREFUL the water is cold and deep-10 feet or 3m at the landing and swimming is permitted - maybe skin divers can test their equipment there - a ladder facilitates getting out of the water.

Building is built from Mt Gambier limestone and is double glazed -makes for a very quiet stay.

What the "Fly Fishing Lodge" is aimed at is fishing with flies only a catch and release because of the expense and effort to grow them to big size it is no good to have them eaten- We now have other ponds where fish can be caught to be eaten. 3 lakes of about an acre are for fishing and some of this water is used for irrigation for our 800 dairy cows.

Lakes are dug into limestone and sealed to hold pristine quality water-banks are solid and not slippery and a minimum of obstacles to tangle your fly.

Bring your own fly rod and gear -we have limited gear for beginners to tie their own flies .

We are located on a working family dairy farm where we with4 or so employees milk up to 800 holstein cows- tours of the dairy can be arranged subject to time and what is happening.

Sorry NO PETS please.

Finding our place can be a problem until google maps can be CORRECTED , so turn off the Riddoch Hwy at Post Office Rd ,right into Ellis Rd, left into Telfords Rd-or turn off the Nelson Rd Glenelg River Rd onto Laslett Rd,left into Ellis Rd, left into Telfords Rd---left @ 83 and keep left for about 600m. maybe you could print this to take with you or ring us on .

There are lots to see in our immediate area, here is just a few, Mt Schank an almost perfect volcano, reputed to be the youngest in Australia, popular with tourists-Nelson and the Glenelg river,longest saltwater estury in Aust--boat trip Princess Margaret cave.--Tantanoola cave--Pt MacDonell SA Lobster capital buy a crayfish MtGambier and environs blue lake-valley lake good beaches--surfing and area is famous for its skin diving freshwater caves .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! We absolutely loved this property. Kids loved the way they could open the door and jump straight into the lake! Neville and his wife were fantastic hosts. Would love to come back again and would definitely recommend to friends and family! If I could make one suggestion it would be that the directions/address stated Mount Schanck so our gps could have found it easier! Thanks again Neville

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stay and fantastic hosts Lovely location on the lake, where we tried out the free kayaks. We appreciated the two ensuites and the full kitchen. Our overnight stay was not long enough to see all the place had to offer but we loved discovering Neville's many hobbies and seeing Neville and Barb's amazing lounge!
