What we love about living here:
Trevor and I (Pam) love this area where we live so much, we thought it was selfish not to share it! We enjoy a really good glass of quality wine – so what better place to live – a cool climate wine region. We are also ‘foodies’ and with the wine region growing-up here, so did a bunch of restaurants and cafes that enjoy creating menus filled with the amazing local produce grown in this very rich region.
Third generation family property:
I (Pam) grew up on this property that my grandfather purchased and established as an apple, pear and cherry orchard. This occurred through the 1930s to the early 1960s with his two sons’ Ross and Lance, before his passing. After his passing, Ross (my dad) and Lance continued the orcharding business they helped to create. I am the third generation to live and create an income from part of this beautiful gem of land. Currently there are still some apples being farmed here. During my childhood, we also had Hereford cattle to work. We – Trevor and I - now have Highland Cattle – a recent addition and have enjoyed watching the few calves we have, arrive and grow.
We know that we’re lucky to live in such a beautiful spot, overlooking Lake Canobolas only minutes away from Orange NSW. The property was purchased from my family in 2006 and is now the location of our family home and three self-contained and secluded luxury suites. We love watching the sunrise and set, and the colours that they bring to the surrounding lake and vegetation. The birds, native animals and just the wonder of nature add something special to this place. We just had to share what we have with others and that’s how the Lakeview Retreat became our passion.
Our Villas – Couples Retreat:
The villas are purpose-built and we opened our doors to guests in late 2011 with our first one-bedroom villa. The second one-bedroom villa was completed and booking guests in August 2013. Our two-bedroom villa opened in June 2017. We established our accommodation business to be exclusive to couples only. This allows guests to enjoy space without the added noise and demands of children. It also helps us to keep our furniture and appointments in really good condition for each couple checking-in.
Nestled in the heartland of this amazing food and wine region, Lakeview Retreat is just 5kms from Orange, tucked-in amongst the bushland, overlooking the stunning Lake Canobolas. Our villas provide privacy and an exclusive place for you to celebrate something special or to just get away for a few days.
