About the property

Magnificently set-up with all the comforts of home (and more!), The Lakeside Manor is close to all the major wedding venues in Maleny. The home comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests and is set in 3 acres of tranquil gardens with your own private lake and rain forest.

The kids will play for hours in the garden whilst you simply relax listening to huge number of birds tweeting away. You might even be able to sneek a view of our local Wallaby, Mildred or the very discreet Koala (Ken) munching away in the trees. At night you will in stare in sheer wonderment at the magnificent, stars and clear lit night of The Hinterland. Cool at night and temperate during the day, you can snuggle with a book in front of log fire or you can laze on the comfy new beds - the choice is yours.

During the day you can explore the local markets or shops or wonder down to Australia Zoo or visit Maleny Botanical Gardens just down the road from The Lakeside Manor. Other local attractions include Maleny Cheese, Glasshouse Mountain walks, Maleny dairies and the new Maleny Golf course.

If you are coming up to Maleny or the Sunshine Coast Hinterland then the Manor house is ideal for larger groups, sleeping up to 10 adults.

The Lakeside Manor is tastefully decorated and boasts your own coffee machine (Nespresso) and has all the modern appliances you would expect from a luxury getaway including a laundry.

Feel free to pick your own seasonal fruit to take home or to use the fun fire pit at night whilst the BBQ cooks your dinner. The Lakeside Manor is only a 6 minute drive to the Maleny township if you would prefer to eat out. For local recommendations please feel free to ask us, but we can recommend Mang Thai, The Seafood Terrace, Pomadoras or for lunch visit Mark at Maple 1. Montville is about a 20 minute drive where there is an array of restaurants.

We are sure (if previous feedback is anything to go by) you will simply love your visit to The Lakeside Manor - its a little bit of heaven for you to relax and re-charge. We look forward to hosting you and to making your stay a memorable one. We are here to help.

Close to Australia Zoo - luxury rural stay in Maleny - The Lakeside Manor

Get up high above Australia Zoo and the temperature drops to much more comfortable levels. The heat and humidity can often be a killer at sea level, but a short drive up the hill its much more temperate and besides that much more beautiful than the flatlands of Beerway (where Australia Zoo is located).

So, if you are coming to visit Australia Zoo, we strongly suggest you drive just a little further up to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland where you find the cute little town of Maleny. People from all over the world move to Maleny because of its sheer beauty and wonderful climate. Just out of the the town you will find a little piece of heaven, our purpose built home away from home - The Lakeside Manor, so named because you look straight over your own lake from the deck.

The home comfortably sleeps 10 guests and 2 bathrooms (one is disabled friendly), a lounge, dining area, TV plus all the mod cons you would expect from a luxury get-away. The Lakeside Manor has wonderful views and is a tranquil home away from home. Our 3 acre property is home to magnificent birdlife and with regular visits from our resident Wallaby.

We are confident you will love your time at The Lakehouse Manor and we look forward to hosting you and ensuring your stay is a memorable one. Please contact us for mid-weel specials or group bookings through Stayz.

A magical wonderland and can't wait to get back!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Lakeside Manor! It had such a cosy feeling and exceptionally comfy beds, a choice of fireplaces inside and out surrounded by a quite country feel with you own lake. Highlight was relaxing with a book and their new deck overlooking the lake sipping champers made the city feel even further away. The house has a well stocked pantry with all the essentials which we did not bring.There is plenty of space for the kids and dogs as well as a trampoline. We'll be back for our wedding (we loved the ceremony deck over the water). The owners are very attentive without being intrusive and even brought us some organic rocket for our dinner. Can't wait to get back as soon as possible and start planning our big day.

Quaint, rustic warmth but needs some love.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the Lakehouse Manor with it's quaint, rustic warmth and lush bush setting overlooking the small lake and cattle happily grazing on the adjacent hill.

In the yard there were lemon trees heavy with big, juicy lemons to pick and a trampoline to keep the kids occupied.

Unfortunately most of the 3 acres are inaccessible so there really is only about half an acre or so for guest use but it was still a great space for the kids to explore and collect fire wood for a bonfire.

I also found the property too close to the road and the traffic noise prevented me from capturing the quiet country getaway I was hoping for.

Our charming host was happy to help with any of our needs, ensuring there was plenty of firewood available for purchase.

There was a range of stables in the kitchen pantry and fresh milk, juice and butter in the fridge to get us started for a self-determined donation.

Hot water bottles, big comfy beds with crisp linens and throws on the lounges were a welcoming touch however, I was ultimately disappointed the cabin was not all it was advertised to be. Apart from needing a good spring clean (the shower recesses came up trumps after we used a bottle of bathroom bleach on them and we had to clean out the kitchen drawers and all the crockery & cutlery), there were no shower curtains so I had to mop the bathroom floors each time someone had a shower, the kitchen was in desperate need of a reno along with a new set of pots & pans and we had to ask for a new washing machine which I thought should have been addressed before we arrived. There was no dryer as advertised but the Owner was happy to provide us with a clothes horse for the few rainy days we were unable to use the clothes line.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your upfront review Kris. I think my service was exceptional - I offered to do washing for you when it was brought to my attention that the new machine was not working, I then immediately went out and bought a new one and installed it within hours - not many people would do that. The cutlery and crockery are all less than 6 months old. We do not advertise a dryer but drying area (cloths line) which is mostly fine for guests. We recycle our water which means we avoid chlorine type detergents but we do use lemon and vinegar to move the worst grime. Kitchen does need a new work surface though. Best wishes Jeremy

Excellent location wth personal touches

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for our wedding weekend and all were more than happy with it. Such a peaceful spot and nothing was too much trouble for Jeremy. Would be a great spot for a weekend away, especially in the cooler months when you can curl up in front of the fireplace! Would love to get back at some stage :)

Perfection Personified

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting! So relaxing...early evening sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine, watching and listening to the birds on the lake was wonderful. I am disabled and my scooter was able to access inside and easily make use of the bathroom facilities. Recomend this place to anyone be they a couple, family or group.
