Soak up the views and tranquility of the Lake from this newly furnished ABSOLUTE waterfront Cottage and Boathouse...

These absolute waterfront retreats are the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the serene views of Lake Macquarie from your own balcony. The perfect getaway for either a family, with it's proximity to the lake, beaches and large yard or a romantic getaway for two.

You will be able to enjoy all these activities:

- Beaches: 3 minutes drive to Catherine Hill Bay or 5 minutes to Caves Beach

- Fishing: cast a line from the backyard!

- Visit the Hunter for wine tasting

- Table tennis (located downstairs)

- Kids swing and climbing outdoor play equipment

- Dining: go for a casual lunch at Catho Pub or neighbouring restaurants at Rafferty's Resort (2 minute drive) or....just kick back and relax with a BBQ on the balcony as you watch the sunset over the lake.

- Boating (tie up at the water's edge in the back yard)

...and for those necessities, there is a local corner shop within walking distance (along the lake's edge), or take a 5 minute drive to Swansea to supermarkets and more restaurants.
