Where else in the world can you visit the skifields and national parks on one day and fish by the beach and play a round of golf the next ? Maeburn Cottages in Metung.

Whether you require relaxation and privacy, a business retreat, a romantic

getaway, family holiday or a boating / fishing / golfing trip, or a one night stopover, Maeburn Cottages has it all ! The ideal lakeside country retreat for couples, families, friends and large groups of up to 20. Enjoy a GREAT stay in beautiful Metung all year round.

Maeburn Cottages are located a short stroll to the pristine waters of Lake King in Metung, an up-market fishing village on the spectacular Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, which form the largest inland waters in Australia.

Local shops in Metung Village include a general store, pharmacy depot, post office, information centre, realestates, gift shops, boutique clothing, pub, takeaway pizzaria, gourmet restaurants and cafes. Weekend farmers market on the Village Green once a month. 20 min to Lakes Entrance and Bairnsdale for shopping and entertainment.

The property is set in an acre of established gardens, amidst native trees that play home to a large number of rare bird species. Indeed, twitchers can enjoy identifying more than 130 varieties of birdlife. The luxury self-catering family-style holiday cottages are positioned for privacy and offer quality furnishings throughout with your comfort in mind, plenty of adjacent parking with ample room for the boat and trailer. Each cottage has a ramp for easy wheelchair access. Maeburn's country retreat truly is a home away from home. We offer our guests the option of bringing their own linen (sheets, pillowcases and towels) for a saving of $10 per person.

The Lakes promote numerous water sports, such as, sailing regattas, boating, fishing competitions (e.g. The Bream Classic), kayaking, windsurfing and jet skiing. Other outdoor pursuits include, hiking, skiing, 4wd, bush walking, and Golf. We are just around the corner from the prestigious Ted Parslow architect designed resort-style Kings Cove Golf Course (visitors welcome) and 2 hours from the snow (Mt Hotham)

Take a relaxing stroll with your pooch along the scenic beach.

Walking distance (10-15min stroll along Beach Rd by the lake) to Metung Village for excellent Coffee, gourmet Cafe Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we needed......highly recommended We were thoroughly satisfied with the cleanliness and comfort of the cottage and the beautiful, peaceful location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very relaxing We stayed three nights in cottage 4 over the new year and enjoyed every relaxing moment. Our dog was happy and comfortable and enjoyed the short walk to the lake each day. The cottage and surrounding gardens were neat, tidy and comfortable. Plenty of car parking. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen well appointed. The bathroom was clean and water was hot and plentiful. I would definitely recommend this accomodation.
