A special space

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this retreat. Plenty of wide open spaces, the sounds of nature and the pretty lake. We swam, we ate on the veranda, we walked, and caught up with each other as well as having time to ourselves. The dogs thoroughly enjoyed playing in the lake. Everything you need is here to enjoy a peaceful retreat.

Great place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We could not fault anything at the Bendigo Eppalock Holiday Retreat. We were lucky enough to have a good but cold weather weekend in July ... the house was beautifully warm when we arrived, the beds were very comfortable and the house had everything you could ask for including the open fire and plenty of wood supplied. The activities were great for the kids, fishing close by and son brought his paddleboard which he used each day. I would recommend this house for any large (or small) group holiday.

Bendigo Eppalock Holiday Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Overall a brilliant place to stay. Host very obliging. Large comfortable home, with lots of space and outstanding views. We loved the open fire but found it didn't draw well at times making the room smokey. Hardwork barrowing wood to the house as both barrows had flat tyres. A little more attention required to general house keeping, lots of cobwebs and the linen smelt of stale cigarettes. These were only minor problems and would not stop us from returning.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Have now changed flat tyers on wheelbarrows.I check cobwebs every week, due to living in country with lots of trees we do have spiders and insects as part of our invironment must have missed when checking before your stay. Havent a answer for linen smelling of stale cigarettes. People are not suppose to smoke in house I am unable to monitor that. As house sleeps up to 20people maybe the odd person has been smoking in house.really out of my control have never had this complaint before,.pleased to see you only considered these as minor problems and will be back. Kind regards Jan

Fantastic relaxing getaway. A lovely property with lots of room. The view of the lake from the verandah is awesome. We had a hens weekend away and all the girls loved it (as well as the dogs, especially swimming in the dam). Thanks again Jan for letting us use your lovely home. I will definately consider returning in the future.
