Fantastic stay. Beautiful accomodation and the hosts went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Lots of wildlife to see and can even feed the birds out of your hands from your balcony.

Charming garden setting in a bush-land environment, with lots of different bird life, kangaroos, fishing nearby. Well equipped and presented cottages set well apart from each other, with all needs provided including generous breakfast supplies. Very courteous and helpful hosts.

cosy cabin in the woods, close to nature, very friendly hosts...too bad we missed out on the fresh baked muffins, make sure you plan your last day to leave a bit later so you don't miss out. We'll be back!

Thank you anonymous, I have guessed who you are.....I am so happy that you had a confortable stay at Willowlake, I know you had great fun at the snow. I try to ensure the muffins are baked, ready to eat by 10am Sundays. On your next trip you will have to sleep in on Sunday, so you can enjoy your muffins. Warm regards, Anne-Maree

Fantastic staff

Very private lake view accommodation, cabin was spotless, owner really goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need, even fresh baked muffins one morning. We stayed 5 nights & would not hesitate staying again or recommending friends.

Having said that, we are happy to confirm that we really appreciated your feedback and comments. Warm Regards,
