WHAT'S CLOSE BY??

GENERAL STORE

The property is walking distance from the local general store which has everything you could need including great coffee, food, alcohol, papers and mags, fuel for your car/boat, take away food etc etc. So drop in and say hello to Sue and Eric and say you are staying at Paula's place and they will look after you.

BOAT RAMP is about a good stones throw from the property so you can watch your being launched and skiers skiing from the property. This boat ramp may or may not be open depending on the water levels. The good thing about Goughs Bay however, is that there are many boat ramps to launch your boat around the Bay area no matter what the water level. When the lake was at its lowest the only place you can launch your boat is on a ramp was at Goughs Bay!!

BOAT CLUB!! This is a MUST VISIT and open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Its a great place to sit and enjoy a cold one overlooking possibly the best view of Lake Eildon you will find. Prices for drinks are the cheapest around.!!!! NOTE: You don't have to be a member to visit.

MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP is only 10 Min away and that has everything you could want and more. The restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are all worth a visit and the strip shopping is fantastic. Just keep in mind that most shops do close on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. If you a looking for the best Pizza in Victoria then Mansfield Pizza is the place. Drop in and ask for Jacqueline, the owner, tell her Paula sent you and you will be well looked after.

WINERIES and THE DELATITE RIVER

Wineries are abundant in the area and there is a great fishing/swimming hole called Bracks Bridge about 2 min drive from the property. Check in with Sue and Erik at the General Store for directions.

MOUNT BULLER AND MOUNT STIRLING

The property is situated not far out of Mansfield and a 30 min drive to the Mt Buller gate entry. Making day trips easy and importantly affordable.

MANSFIELD ZOO

You would have passed the Zoo on your way to the property and is a must see. You can feed animals and pat the animals in this open range environment. The kids will love it and so will you!!

GOUGHS BAY RESTAURANT (AMONGST THE STICKS)

This is the only restaurant in Goughs Bay and is well worth the visit. Had dinner there recently and loved the food, service and atmosphere.

Open Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm

Saturday from 11.30am for Lunch and Dinner

Sunday from 9am for Breakfast and Lunch

HIGH COUNTRY MAZE AND GARDENS

This is well worth the visit the kids will love it and so will you!

Open Thursday to Sunday

BRACKS BRIDGE

Approx 1 km for a lovely Picnic area on the Delatite River. Public bush toilets and wood bbq. Great fishing and swimming hole.

Perfect spot in summer to relax under the huge shady trees.

Feel the cool mountain water rushing though your feet while walking along the flat river rocks.

PICNIC POINT:

Picnic point is visible from the property and is a walk or short drive away. It has a playground area, BBQ and toilet facilities. Just turn right at the bottom of our driveway and follow the road around to the left keeping the water on your left, you will pass the caravan park on your right and picnic point is a bit further along on your left. The views are spectacular.

Basic but what a great spot. Had everythuing.

  • 4 of 5

We had four couples and three dogs over Christmas-New Year break.

The house is quirky but had everythng we needed.

It also came with a three a.m. possum in the roof every morning we didn't need!!Paula is aware of this :/

View is to die for and we would recommend it to others as it is great value for money.

Owner's Response: Hi Graham Thank you for your review it is much appreciated. Sorry about Possum I had plumber investigate and he told me he got it out, maybe its found another entry. Obviously needs some more investigation they are tricky animals and seem to get into the smallest places. With the cleaning could you tell me what was a problem if any, so I can pass it onto my cleaner as I am very particular about how clean the property is. Kind Regards Paula:)

Fantastic property in the most beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

After such an exceptional trip last year we chose to once again stay at the Lake & Mountain Escape.

It is a fantastic and functional house in the most beautiful location! It has everything you could possibly need, plenty of heaters to keep you warm and you wake up to the most divine view of the lake!

Only 30 minutes from the base of Buller the location is perfect for a winter get away.

Paula is extremely helpful and the house is always very clean on arrival.

About Paula Crawford-Hall

I am a property manager, yoga teacher and ski instructor. I Have 2 boys and a dog. I love to water ski and snow ski so this place is perfect summer and winter

Paula Crawford-Hall purchased this house in 2003

Why Paula Crawford-Hall chose Goughs Bay

I grew up water skiing on the lake and fell in love with Goughs bay and its views. This property is really practical and has everything you need and more, with a view to die for. Its such a relaxing place to be its somewhere you can plug back into nature and leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city.

What makes this house unique

Has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms one with a spa.

There is a huge deck at the front of the house which is fully fly wired in so no pests! It also has a table tennis table and outdoor setting, doggie door and dog bed. The view of the water and mountains from here is spectacular.

There is also a deck on top of the house with fantastic views. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have views and the other has its own deck.

There is an open fire and kids room with separate open kitchen living and dining area.
