The Lakes House

This house has been a home for over 150 years, and is ready for the next 150. It will comfortably look after 1-8 people, in all weathers, and all seasons.

There are two fire places and many couches. This is a place for those who like a fire and a good book.

A long sunroom overlooks the lake at one end, and looks over to the Bridgewater Caves at the other. This is a place for watching the earth turn and the day unfold.

Two contemporary bathrooms and simple laundry facilities take care of all domestic needs. The kitchen is generous in size and outlook you can be cooking up a storm while watching one blow over from the bay.

From the door, walking trails lead through the garden, up the hills, around the lake or beyond to the coastal and national parks in the area. There are safe beaches, surf beaches and dramatic cliff top walks for the more adventurous. This is a place where wildness is accessible.

At each days end, four solid stone walls and new beds will ensure that sleep is sound. This is a place to re-connect with the natural world, breathe deeply and recharge the batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place to relax A most beautiful historic homestead, carefully renovated. We loved the mixture of historic parts and modern interiors. A perfect place to relax and even a rainy day didn't bother us in this charming atmosphere. We loved to spent hours in the kitchen or sitting in the most comfortable living room in front of the wood fires. We experienced the passion of the owners for this wonderful house and place. Thanks to the owners for their great hospitality and support to organize this stay from Europe. We recommend this place to all those, who are looking for a tranquil and beautiful place in a most wonderful part of Victoria with great view over the lakes. After 4 days we were really sad that we had to leave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful, historic property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully presented and spacious historic home in what is one of the most delightful parts of coastal western Victoria. Our only suggestion is that the water pressure for the bathrooms needs some improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lakes House Cape Bridgewater A very lovely and well loved property, well maintained, Owners very friendly. A great getaway to relax and chill out, no internet or tv reception to worry about. Plenty of things to do, curling up with a book in front of the wood fires, walking around the property, visit the caves over the road from the property, trips to Cape Bridgewater and surrounding areas, great walking tracks. A great place to visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Outlook, Fantastic House This was our second visit and it didn't disappoint. The homestead is steeped in history yet has been renovated to a very high standard. The beauty of the beach, caves or lakes on their own is wonderful but to have all three on your doorstep is absolute luxury. We will definitely be back again.
