5/5 Excellent

Amazing family getaway!
Fantastic accommodation, our family had a lovely trip!! Excellent location opposite the lake, even in Autumn/winter it was a great place to stay! Very clean and suitable for your young kids. Lots of care taken to ensure our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! We would highly recommend and plan to stay again!

4/5 Good

Great location for a relaxing weekend away
Great property inside and out. Would have loved to have stayed longer.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful, quiet, comfortable - a great base to explore NE Victoria
After a tough year of lockdown, masks and working from home, it was great to spend time in the country - away from phones, laptops, duty rosters etc! We needed a break and our time at Lima South gave us that in heaps! We loved the rustic charm, the incredible views over the farm looking one way and the bbq pit the other way. We could walk to Lake Nillicoorte and it was a shortish drive into Benalla to explore the fantastic art gallery. It was a great base to explore the NE silo art trail and the Winton wetlands. Very comfortable bed, a large living area and well equipped kitchen (although providing some oil would be helpful). Apart from that we had everything we needed for a restful stay. And the easter eggs was a wonderful surprise . . . as was the wine in the room. We recommend it!

5/5 Excellent

Place was great! Beautiful views!
Beautiful shed done up into a house. Amazing views topped off with an huge fire pit out the front 🙌 The lake is right across the road, you can walk or drive it which is a 2 minutes drive to put the boat in. Very much enjoyed this place for a good get away! Im from the country and I enjoyed it but my friends are from Melbourne and they loved it! Highly recommended 🙌
