Gippsland Lakes Retreat

we love this because…

 

Metung is one of the prettiest villages in Australia.  Positioned on a small spit of land, it sits on Bancroft Bay, with Lake King at its back.  It is a photographers paradise, a natural environmental home to amazing birdlife, dolphins and fish and a wide variety of native animals.

The Gippsland Lakes also offers sailing, boating and fishing in sheltered inland waterways free from rocks, reefs and tides.  Even if you don’t sail or have a boat licence you can hire a boat locally and explore these safe waters.  Just contact our friends at Riviera Nautic to help you out with all things boats and fishing.

We love the uniqueness of this beautiful lakehouse. It’s a three-storey weatherboard cottage painted a striking Ironstone Blue with white trim, reminiscent of the houses in the Hamptons.

We love to spend the time in the cosy lounge in winter with the log fire and a good book. In the morning we take our dogs for a walk through the garden and a private walkway through native bushland (the property is on 1 acre) to the lake and Cantrills Jetty. Throwing a tennis ball into the water the dogs love to swim out to catch it.

Afternoons are for fishing.  Choose any lake location but we wander down the pathway again to the Jetty to catch something for dinner (you will need a fishing licence but you can pick that up from Riviera Nautic too).

For the best food, head to the Metung Hotel (locally known as the Pub) and book a table with a view.  It’s always bustling so you have to book.  Bancroft Bites is our choice for breakfast or coffee.  For a little more action head into Lakes Entrance and buy fresh prawns off the boats.  We sit outside undercover in the late afternoon with local wine and feast on our seafood delights.

What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.

Yay! a garden and courtyard with fences to keep me safe (although if you are a tiny tacker then you might fit under the front fence which has big gaps, you need mum and dad to keep an eye on you then).  Love the trees, bushes and the walking tracks the wombats have made, there are lots of interesting smells.  Are those possums in the trees?

I LOVE THIS PLACE.

A WORD OF WARNING – this is a rural setting. There are native animals such as echidnas, possums, wombats, monitor lizards and snakes living on the block and in the creek.  It is the owners responsibility to look after their pets when walking in the bush.  It is best to keep pets on a lead and not allow them to interact with the wildlife.

Reviews

We had a wonderful stay at The Oar House and have taken away some lovely memories. Thank you for making it available to pets as we do love to travel with our well behaved fur babies. The house was clean and super comfortable and we loved the bush walk to the lake. Thanks again, we have already recommended to others

We loved our stay at the Oar House. It was the perfect cosy winter getaway. It was well equiped, great value and very secure yard for our dog.

Jasmine, August 2023

Beautiful, comfortable & clean property located close to Metung town. Perfect for our group of five. Would have been nice if there was firewood provided.

Lisa, Dec 2023

Gorgeous property with so much to offer. Perfect for our little getaway. Each room has been thoughtful decorated and the attention to detail is amazing. The home was spotlessly clean for our arrival, which was much appreciated. Loved every minute.
