Yesterday, the boys and I drove up to our new holiday house in Goughs Bay just to check a few things out before we settle. We are so excited that the water level of the lake is up to 90%, the view is divine, the house is better than we first inspected and we have a fabulous back garden with so much potential with its elevation.
In my entrepreneurial ways, we plan to use it as a holiday house for us, but also as a vacation rental so others can enjoy it too. We love that its in a sleepy town that comes alive over the summer with holiday makers wanting to enjoy the boating life, the hiking, the wine country and the wildlife. We love that its so close to Mt Buller, one of Victoria’s most popular alpine resorts so that our little house can be used in the winter season as well.
While we were there, we introduced ourselves to the people at the General Store – a store that sells everything from beer & wine to lattes, deli meats, ice, gas and all your standard groceries. We also checked out the information centre in Mansfield to find out about all the festivals, the activities and the local produce farms. And we went for a walk along our street in search of the boat ramp (it wasn’t far!) and the local caravan park and saw some million properties along the way. Such as sweet place to be – perfect in the off season for those who want a quiet getaway, great in the high season for those who love the lake lifestyle.
Anyway, here are a few pics!
