When it comes to picking the perfect luxury accommodation, stylish interiors, great outdoor entertaining areas and a spa pool are often top of the list. If this is what you’re looking for, Mara Lodge certainly will not disappoint! This spacious private residence is in a fantastic location, with lake access only a stroll away and the town centre easily accessible by car or bicycle. The gated property boasts a bright, welcoming open plan living area with white timber-clad pitched ceilings and exposed beams. Large sliding doors open this area up on two sides, creating great indoor-outdoor flow with the sun-drenched patio to the north east and the sheltered courtyard area to the south. This courtyard has a large outdoor dining table, a fireplace and a barbecue, making it a fantastic space to enjoy all year round – whether that be with a glass of local Pinot Noir in front of the roaring fire after a day of skiing, or with a cold beverage and some snacks after a day on the lake. The gardens are a sight to behold, with manicured lawns, picture perfect pruned garden beds and plenty of space for the children to play, while the large spa pool offers a place for adults to relax. There’s even a sauna if you need to detox!

There are multiple living areas inside offering yet more space for families and groups to spread out, with a cosy nook off the main living area offering a second television and fireplace. The fully equipped kitchen, complete with a butler’s pantry, has everything you need to cook up a storm, or better yet, have a private chef cook up a feast for a family dinner. There are 5 spacious bedrooms, with three downstairs bedrooms each with its own sliding door leading out to the garden. Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts a separate study area, a large walk-in wardrobe and a tiled bathroom with shower and bathtub. There is a balcony leading out from the master offering elevated views over the garden and glimpses of the lake. Also upstairs is a separate apartment with its own kitchenette, living room, ensuite bathroom and outdoor seating area. This is a great option for extended families, as it gives the grandparents some peace and quiet from the grandchildren! The entrance to the lakeside trail is just 300m from the property, where you can walk or bike into town, to popular swim-spot Eely Point or round to the river outlet and on to Albert Town. The minimum stay at Mara Lodge is 4 nights.
