The Moodemere Lake House is uniquely Australian and fully self contained. Situated in the midst of picturesque Lake Moodemere Estate, the Moodemere Lake House offers the ultimate in wine destinations. The broad deck and living area provide absolute views of Lake Moodemere, while the bedroom faces the extensive vineyard. There is only one guest house so privacy is guaranteed. (Sorry, due to the very close proximity to the Moodemere Reserve pets are not permitted.)
Provisions for a cooked breakfast are included. When in season, a large bowl of fresh oranges from our century old orchard is provided - delicious when juiced for breakfast!
The Lake House is situated 7km’s from Rutherglen, and nestled in the midst of a number of wineries and attractions. At least six wineries may be easily accessed by foot, bicycle, or horse, along pretty country lanes. Golfers are spoilt for choice with three championship golf courses within a 30 minute radius. For an added fun challenge test your skill with the Great Lake Moodemere Hole in One at the cellar door where the green floats in the lake.
Despite all the region has to offer, guests may not want to leave the Moodemere Lake House. The day can be whiled away right on your doorstep. From the deck you may spend the morning watching for platypus. There are over 100 species of birds, including eagles, swans and pelicans. Native wildlife such as echidnas and kangaroos are regular visitors. A short walk along the bank of Lake Moodemere and the vineyard leads to the cellar door where guests may enjoy a relaxed lunch and private wine tasting. At dusk light up the fire pit and experience the spectacular sunset over Lake Moodemere. Although the Moodemere Lake House has only been open for two months and despite the cold winter nights, several guests have enjoyed the fire pit well into the early hours of the morning. Some have wrapped themselves in the woolen rugs provided and all have warmed up with several bottles of Lake Moodemere wine!
A walk around Lake Moodemere, and along the Murray River will take around 2hours and provide many memorable, unique, and beautiful sights. The track is also suitable for mountain bikes and horses.
Lake Moodemere Estate is also a working vineyard and farm. The changing seasons offer many opportunities to get involved, such as grape picking or experiencing the shearing shed in action.
