We booked The Lake House for 6 nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. The stay was absolutely amazing. Ranga and the guys were so friendly and they did a fantastic job. We and our guests loved every minute. The birthday BBQ was a wonderful event, with the food, drinks, cake and fireworks all making it a very special day. All of our meals were delicious with lovely fresh ingredients. The house was kept immaculate, our laundry was always done to a high standard, and any extra requests we had were met. Not only did Ranga help those of us who were staying at the Lake House, he was also so helpful to many of our friends staying at other accommodation- organising them transport, meals etc. In general it was a wonderful stay, we will be back.
This is an exceptionally lovely property set in a tranquil position, set back from the lake, with views to die for. Beautifully presented and spotless, the rooms are a delight to behold all with showers, some outdoors. Staff and food are beyond reproach and the house manager can organise anything required including outside of the immediate house. The Lake House comes highly recommended and if a large party there is more than sufficient space not to feel at all cramped! ONE NOT TO BE MISSED.
We went here for a few days to celebrate a milestone birthday. The celebration was spectacular. The garden which borders the lake was lit with candles - a heart in the middle had our table inside. We feasted on lobster and champagne and then had a fireworks display. We had brought a cake which we shared with the staff. It was completely amazing. The rest of the stay too was exceptional in spite of a lot of cloud! I cannot recommend this house enough. And the owner could not have been more helpful. A totally wonderful experience.
