"Gorgeous, well designed lakehouse. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake and dining on the verandah. This is a great spot - the sound of the waves lapping the shore is very soothing. We did the mountain bike ride to Peregian Beach and enjoyed walking along the trail within the property. We loved the wild life - saw a Jabiru, Stingrays and Kangaroos."
Adele Hare and Ben Fleming - April 2010
"Beautiful! Exceeded our expectations, will make this a regular visit! Wonderful to have a canoe and little beach and such a peaceful place."
Ileana Hatton and David Costello - January 2010
"From the minute we entered the lakehouse it automatically felt like home. What a beautiful place with beautiful views and amazing lake breeze. We really don't want to leave and go back to work. This place is so relaxing and beautiful. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience this. We'll definitely be back after we brush up on our canoe skills!!"
Jason, Kylie & Caleb Shanon - November 2009
"If you are looking for comfort and escape into the natural world, this is it. The cabins are beautifully designed, built and maintained, and well spaced out around the shores of the enormous and (while we were there) serene Lake Weyba - canoe provided. Deep in a forest which is being sensitively protected, it's the perfect place for unwinding and reconnecting with all the important stuff that gets forgotten in the routines most of us have to live by. The entire family loved it unreservedly."
Australia has been amazing adventure for us pallid Brits. We’ve done most things tourists are supposed to do - been up close and personal with whales in Hervey Bay, swum with mantra rays on Lady Elliott Island and it has all been glorious. But the 4 days we had at Eumarella Shores was a real highlight and I’m sure it will be one of the most compelling voices calling us back from grubby old Europe. Thanks and best wishes.”
John Mister UK - August 2009
“We left Eumarella on Friday after a WONDERFUL week. We made the most of the glorious weather and were out on the lake most days – either in the canoe provided or our own kayak. And we finally made it into Peregian on our bikes. That French patisserie tucked around the corner is to die for! Thankyou for a wonderful location which gave us so much rest and renewal.”
Desley Greenhalgh - August 2009
“Just lovely – views, atmosphere – such a sense of peace and tranquillity. We’ll definitely be back. The canoe was a wonderful bonus and gave us many hours of fun, adventure and discovery. Thanks so much. Please keep being guardians of your native forest. It really is a national treasure and I hope it is around for many, many generations to come.”
Sharon Booysen - August 2009
“This tops our previous best cabin stay at Cradle Mountain. We are definitely coming back for a longer stay”
Darren and Mari Ashted - July 2009

Jina Cha - July 2009

Tony Sophie and Jack Miscamble - July 2009
“Beautiful tranquil surroundings. Sensitive, well-appointed facilities (what lovely, well built architecture!) The Studio in particular was very cosy – great colour scheme! Lovely staff! We’re both creative, artistic people and responded to the environment! Inspired! We’ll hope to return soon.”
