Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely well serviced and maintained property We had an exceptional stay at Dry Creek Retreat. Lara and Cam contacted to confirm our arrangements and when we arrived, the fire was roaring and there was fresh bread, eggs, milk in the fridge and a generous breakfast basket. The house is well kitted out with modern appliances, clean linens and tasteful furnishings. The house has a beautiful setting overlook lake Eildon, and is nicely landscaped around the house. We will definitely be back... Thanks Lara and Cam!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical stay for 3 generations What a perfectly relaxing spot. This modern house is beautiful, with everything you could ever need. The complimentary breakfast hamper was a lovely touch. Comfortable beds, loads of space, great layout (to suit two families), beautifully decorated, a cubby house and the view! The most stunning view overlooking the lake and the hills, with plenty of birds (cockatoos, eagles and parrots) and kangaroos to spot. We cooked a few BBQs, sat out on the deck and soaked up the view. Its a short walk down to the lake, a great spot for boating and fishing. Great for all ages, kids and grandparents loved it here.
