Do you have any questions about the accommodation?
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cook top with wok burner, a fan-forced electric oven and grill, a microwave, a health grill, an electric frying pan, a kettle, and a toaster. There is also a television with a DVD player and DVDs, as well as a stereo with a radio, a CD player, an iPod dock, magazines, books, and cassettes.
When it gets cool at night, as it often does because of the elevation, guests can close the doors and curl up in front of a wood fire with a hot drink or a glass of wine. When the days are warm, open the house up and let the breezes cooled by the lake refresh you. This is a non-smoking cottage.
Outside, there are decks overhanging the lake and walls of bi-fold doors that fully open onto the decks. In addition, there is a campfire on the beach beside the cottage that is perfect for barbecuing something delicious or just toasting marshmallows.

Both small and medium weddings have been celebrated at this glamping site—on the decks, on the beach, in the rainforest, and more. The hosts would love to discuss wedding plans with anyone interested in hosting their wedding at this property; please inquire with the hosts for more details and pricing.
In addition, scheduled visits by clubs and organizations are welcome, whether for a morning, an afternoon, or the whole day. There is an entry charge per person, and the property can offer morning or afternoon refreshments. Again, please contact the host for more details, if interested.
Workshops are occasionally offered here, too, and past workshops have included photography, creative writing and business planning workshops, which have been very successful. If interested in potential offerings, please inquire with the host when submitting a booking request,
Location + Surroundings
- Wildlife watching
The retreat is open for stays year round, so depending on the season in which guests visit, they will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of different activities. Winter brings frosty mornings, warm, mellow days and cold nights, where the skies are crystal clear and the heavens have never looked more beautiful. Spring brings gardens full of the perfumes of wisteria, roses, lavender, citrus, and eucalyptus blossom, as well as a new batch of Wiltshire longhorn lambs gamboling in the paddocks. During summer, glampers will have the chance to help with the wine grape harvest and enjoy a pickers picnic. In the fall, clouds rise up from the lake at dawn and drift down into the valley, as guests take a basket and go mushroom hunting in the paddocks.
Cloudlake allows for an invigorating getaway, including exploring the rainforest, the aforementioned orchards and vineyards, heading up to the National Park and Beutels Lookout, and going paddling out on or swimming in the lake, to name but a few. Guests can even go blueberry picking from November to February at the Hampton Blue Blueberry Farm! There are also a number of great local places to have a meal out, no matter what time of day, such as Bunnyconnellen, Ravensbourne Café (within walking distance of this glamping property!), and Flavours at Hampton.
