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.

Thank you Peter and Imke, We know we responded to your review via Review Pro/Trip Adviser. However, referring to current technology, it seems the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

Brilliant weekend away

Pros: See above
Cons: Only problem was the spa jets leaked water but it did not hamper our experience.
Location: Mansfield to the north and Jamieson to the south has plenty of eateries, and of course Mt Buller for the snow.
My wife and I stayed in the 'summer' cottage and were very pleased with the hospitality shown throughout our two night stay. The hosts were very welcoming and unintrusive, the cottage clean with a fireplace, spa and spectacular view. Little extras such as the DVD collection and the muffins given upon driving back to Melbourne added a very nice touch to the experience. We hope to be back soon! Liam and Laura.

Hello Liam and Laura, Thank you very much, it was our pleasure. Sorry about the spa, 'someone' who shall remain nameless, forgot to shut the drain valve off, on the pump....something that is now rectified. Take care, hopefully our paths will cross again. Regards, Anne-Maree Willowlake Cottages
