Point of difference

Enjoy beautiful sunsets over the water from this simple waterfront reserve cottage on sheltered Kooroora Bay in the north west corner of Lake Macquarie. Only five minutes by car from Toronto, 10 minutes from CNCC Hillsborough Dog Showground and just an hour and a half north of Hornsby and easy access from the M1 Pacific Motorway..

This two bedroom cottage sleeps five - one queen bedroom, one bedroom with two single beds and a single bed in the living area.


A delightful waterfront reserve location in a pleasant neighbourhood, with a broad, flat, lakeside walk along the reserve and parks in both directions.

A modest and comfortable cottage from yesteryear with a full kitchen equipped for self catering (no dishwasher) and a fenced, grassed yard.

Wonderful views across Lake Macquarie to Toronto and the Watagan Mountains. Anchor your boat out the front, public jetty and lake pool 20 metres from the cottage. Boat ramp and playground close by.

Linen is not included (linen parcels are available by prior arrangement with the owner - fees apply) but quilts, blankets, pillows and tea towels are provided.

Pets allowed by prior arrangement with the owner - refundable bond of $100.

A cleaning fee of $40 is added to single night bookings.

Please note: the shower is over a deep bath.


Bay Cottage now has a secure yard after some permanent and some temporary fencing has been put in place. So provided 900mm fence will contain your pet, they (and you) would be most welcome to stay at Bay Cottage on beautiful Lake Macquarie

A lovely place Nicely-kept older property. Everything you need to be comfortable - heaters, fans, lots of sofas, lovely lake view and great bedroom black-out curtains. And I really appreciate that we can have our dogs staying with us too.
Liz was fantastic with info and instructions by email before and after my stay.

Bay Cottage We have been to Bay Cottage many times and regard it as our little oasis away from home.
The setting is exquisite and the cottage is a throw-back from the 50s - very quaint and
has every appliance you could ever want. Plenty of room in the cottage and wonderful views. Its our favourite holiday place.
