We have stayed with Gippsland Lakes Escapes for 2 years and it is just as good the second time around! Lovely, clean and bright with everything fresh and clean. The view across the lake is wonderful. Staff at are very helpful and friendly – be back next year!

Thank you very much for a clean and comfortable stay. It was very cozy and we all had a wonderful time. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again!

The space was absolutely amazing – well furnished, comfortable, spacious, beautifully decorated and the essentials were all provided for. The kayak provided made the trip that extra special. One of the top places we have ever stayed at.

This is our 4th year we have booked houses with GLE – we hope to continue booking with them!

This place is a beautiful slice of paradise that feels like a home away from home.
