Driveway access & Boat trailer access limitations
Like many Taylor Bay properties the access track to the property is steep and has very tight bends. At times the driveway can be a bit rough. A low sports car would have difficulty using the access track. We use the access track with a rear wheel drive car (all year) however trailer access to the house and lake is limited and not recommended. Some people may find the access track a bit challenging however once down the access track you have premium lake access and water views, and a floating jetty to moor your boats. On one occasion after extreme weather (50mm rain in 2 hours) a delay in exiting the property occurred the vehicle a people mover van had to wait a couple of hours for the track to recover. We have also had reports of front wheel drive cars at times having trouble exiting the property.
If you have concerns with the driveway please don't hesitate to discuss these concerns with the owner.
Some guests have launched small boats & jet skis from the property however a 4wd tow vehicle is recommended as depending on the lake conditions a vehicle may become easily bogged. Towing a trailer up the driveway with a 2WD car would be challenging, or impossible and certainly damaging to the track.
The owners recommend that water craft are launched at the public boat ramp at Fraser National Park or the Eildon wall boat ramp and moored at the jetty for duration of the stay.
Trailers can be left inside the property at the top of the access track.
Please contact owners for details about driveway access and trailer access limitations.
Be aware that during periods of low water in the lake, the floating jetty may not be located immediately out front of the house but will be located in a suitable and safe position as close as is practable.
Please contact the owner or request a telephone call to clarify any points of concern.
