Lakeview offers accommodation in Orange or should I say very close to Orange, that is exclusive, opulent, and award-winning. No other property has Lake Canobolas as part of their ‘back-yard’ and also second to none in the area for location, location, location! So keep reading…….
We are only 5.5 km from the edge of the Orange township and 8 km to the Post Office, just a ten-minute drive away. Therefore, we are remarkably close to restaurants, cafes, and shops plus the taxis all know how to find us.
You continue travelling through the main street and continue west from Orange - then turning south onto Ploughmans Lane and then right onto Canobolas Road for a few kilometres. Once you turn onto Stanford Road, a picturesque country lane, you travel past apple orchards and fields with cattle, until you crest the hill at "Lakeview". The view over Lake Canobolas and up the valley to Mount Canobolas will take your breath away!
The boundary of ‘Lakeview’ adjoins The Lake Canobolas Reserve. Therefore, you have access to walks in and around this beautiful reserve whenever you like - and at certain times of day, when no-one else is there. Across Lake Canobolas Road (main entrance of the Lake) there is the Orange Mountain Bike Track – so bring your mountain bikes if this is part of what you do. In summer there is also swimming, canoeing, sailing, dragon boating and fishing at the Lake. Also there is the Lakeside Café – which is open most of the year.
Also, we have a loop road that travels around our property and through the beautiful Pinnacle and Canobolas valleys, taking you past eight of our fabulous wineries. This drive is known as The Mountain Wine and Food Trail:
Start on Pinnacle Road:
Phillip Shaw Wines
Word of Mouth
Ross Hill Wines
The Pinnacle (walk to the top for a magic view)
Mount Canobolas 360 degree views and the Mountain Tea House
On Lake Canobolas Road:
Drive into Lake reserve and Lakeside Café
Turn right onto Cargo Road
Return to Lakeview travelling on Woods Lane opposite Montoro Wines, Feathers Lane and Wrights Lane.
These are just a few of our many wineries and cellar doors around this beautiful regional city - Orange.
On this loop drive, you also have The Pinnacle to walk up – which has spectacular views down the valley over-looking the Lake and beautiful farming land. Beside which stands the magnificent Mount Canobolas – an extinct volcano – towering above the Pinnacle. You can then drive to the top of Mount Canobolas and enjoy the amazing 360-degree views of this whole region.
One of the other specialties we have in our region is the many villages within thirty to forty minutes drive. They consist of Canowindra (Age of Fishes Museum), Cargo, Cudal, Manildra, Molong, Millthorpe, Blayney and Carcoar (is a bit further). Also, if you haven’t seen the Milky Way for a while – indulge your senses when you look up at the night sky. You will be in awe of what you will be able to see - simply amazing!
