Take a few days to recharge in the fresh air, enjoying the lake, tennis, a massage, or the spa/sauna room.
A myriad of bushwalking tracks meander from the property, or dine alfresco overlooking the water ... it's a truly beautiful spot.

A myriad of bushwalking tracks meander from the property. Nearby are boating facilities, local wineries, excellent artist's studios and galleries, places of historical interest, magnificent gardens and an 18hole golf course complete with kangaroos. Then of course there are the beauty treatments and holistic therapies the region is noted for. We will also understand if the indulgence of great food, excellent wines, good service and wonderful surroundings is all you require.

Spring and Summer provide an abundance of flowers, fruit and vegetables from our local growers. There is the opportunity to dine alfresco overlooking the water. Autumn's clear crisp days are framed by the gloriously coloured European trees planted by the area's original Swiss and Italian settlers. Winter's frosty alpine air encourages walks through mist-laden valleys alongside rushing streams and waterfalls, returning to the warmth and comfort of the lounge with its open fire.
