Lakeside Retreat is our family holiday home. We cannot use it as much as we want to so we are renting it out for others to enjoy.
The house is set on 1 acre and has direct water access on a 5 knot bay which makes swimming, kayaking and floating around in the water safe.
PLEASE NOTE: WATER IS AT THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE WHEN THE LAKE IS AT 60%.
GO TO THE "GOULBURN MURRAY WEBSITE" AND PUT IN "EILDON" UNDER WATER STORAGE LEVELS TO SEE WHERE THE LAKE IS CURRENTLY AT.
The house has 3 bedrooms that sleep 9, two lounge rooms so kids can go up one end and watch a DVD and parents can sit and relax down the other end.
There is a large outdoor setting under the pergola and you have use of a gas BBQ or a Weber BBQ.
We are on Tank Water so therefore you need to be mindful of water usage therefore there is no access to washing machine during stay.
This is a cosy holiday house that has recently had a kitchen upgrade.
There are 2 living areas (each with TV's and DVD players and lots of movies), 1 bathroom and an indoor and outdoor fridge should you require extra storage.
It is a sloping block and access with a 4 wheel or all wheel drive is recommended although driven the right way any car is able to access the property.
There is no capability to tow down the driveway and no boat mooring access on the property. If you have a boat that you are wanting to moor, the owner will let you know the closest place to put the boat in and where to store the trailer.
The Taylor Bay area of Lake Eildon is unique in that access to the Lake is only possible through private land. Large signs on the no-through road entrance to the Bay declare that there are no facilities available to the general public. Taylor Bay is located just 7 mins. from Eildon and 15 mins. from the dam wall. Eildon is approximately 2 hours drive from Melbourne along the Maroondah Highway.
Lake Eildon National Park covers 24,000 Hectares of natural beautiful bushland around the shores of Lake Eildon. The shoreline of the lake is 550km's. The Lake Eildon and Eildon area offers many and varied attractions, places to see and things to do. One attraction to many is do nothing, just laze away, catch up on some well deserved rest and take in the views of peaceful surroundings.
Snobs Falls, the hatchery, boat harbours, Mt Pininger, or perhaps a picnic beside a river, opens up many possibilities to anyone wanting to wind down from city life.
Some beautiful views await the four wheel drive owner, as the many tracks, have always been a favorite natural attraction to visitors wishing to explore for themselves.
The park with its flora, fauna, and short walking tracks are a State treasure. Visitors wishing to explore nature can access other parks in the area which are an easy side trip from Eildon.
Snobs Falls, the hatchery, boat harbours, Mt Pininger, or perhaps a picnic beside a river, great for a picnic
The four wheel drive owner is well catered for, as the many tracks, have always been a favorite natural attraction to visitors wishing to explore for themselves.
THE DAM is, the major attraction in the district, and its base is just a walk away from the centre of the village. More energetic visitors could climb the grassy face, or walk through parkland from the power station. A drive across the wall, to the upper car park also offers views down the Upper Goulburn Valley towards Thornton.
Activities include sightseeing, fishing or boating auger well for a great holiday. Horse and trail-riding, visit a deer farm, a fish farm to catch trout, or even play mini golf.
