Beautiful homestead with lake views, surrounded by stunning farmland.
Mark and Zanna live in Castlemaine, where Mark, a furniture maker and musician (among many other things!), owns and directs Lot19, an evolving artspace with studio spaces, an outdoor stage, a contemporary art gallery, and more. When you make your booking, you'll most likely be communicating with Zanna, who's always on standby to answer your questions and help make your experience at Lakeview House a delightful one.

Why mark chose Yambuk
Mark bought Lakeview House with his brother Jon & family as a place to get together and enjoy all the activities that Yambuk and the surrounding areas provide. It was already operating brilliantly as a holiday rental, so (after a much-needed kitchen renovation) it seemed only natural to continue sharing this wonderful homestead with other lovely folks like you!

Great property and base to explore area
Great home, quite and perfect for a family. Love the wildlife. Peacock and koala. Great base to explore region and away from town.
Comfortable and very relaxing, will stay again.
Each member of our family really enjoyed The Lakeview House in Yambuk. There was plenty of outside room for the kids to enjoy, including collecting fresh eggs from the chicken coup as well as feeding the local Peacock! For us the outlook was wonderfully relaxing as was the house and every conceivable extra was included to make it really welcoming and enjoyable. We will definitely be back.
A funky warm comfortable cottage with a fabulous sunroom and great views. One of our favourite stays on our road trip. Highly recommended
Great family time!
My husband and I took our teenage daughters to Lakeview house and we all had a really great time. We loved the walks to the beach and the day trips to Port Fairy and the whole area. The house was so comfortable and just what we needed for a perfect holiday!
Beautiful! Great getaway.
Lake View is a gorgeous retreat, situated amongst lakes and fields, and only a short walk to lovely Yambuk beach. The house is a real gem, very clean, spacious but cosy, and with lots of nice features such as the log fire and sun-room. The hosts made us feel very welcome, left baked goods for our arrival and provided plenty of firewood and linen to last our stay. We absolutely loved our time there and we can't wait to return.
Thanks Judy and Gus! Orla and Michael
We love it!!!
We have stayed several times at this gorgeous cottage and plan to stay many more. Very comfortable and accommodates our family of 5 wonderfully. So close to the Lake and family friendly with a large yard for the children to play. Love feeding the chooks and collecting the eggs. Wonderful view of the Lake from the sunroom. Games, books etc to keep the children occupied in even the worst weather. Beautifully clean and wonderful communication with the owners. Very relaxing. Highly recommend this property!
Lakeview House is nestled in Yambuk, a peaceful rural haven only 14 mins drive from the many attractions of Port Fairy.
Situated minutes away from beach and lake access, you'll have the whole house to yourself.
It has a large, sweeping lawn, and is surrounded by a gorgeous lakeside farm.
Relax on the daybed and watch the myriad birdlife active on the lake.
Cook together in the kitchen designed with foodies in mind.
Share a meal by the fire inside, or eat alfresco in the outside dining area as the sun sets over the lake.
Head into Port Fairy for shopping, cafes and restaurants, surfing, or the local market.
Look for sharks' teeth on the beaches, experience the wonder of the Byaduk caves, or enjoy a spot of treasure hunting in the many antique and second-hand stores in the surrounding areas.
