The Lake House is a beautiful venue and the food, of course, is divine. Vera and the events team at the Lake House are super organized, experienced, very responsive by email and made the entire process stress free. Special mention to Denise, the in house floral stylist, who did an amazing job with my bouquet, the pergola and the waterfront pavilion. Our in house two tier wedding cake of chocolate raspberry and chocolate matcha was delicious - thank you for accommodating our matcha request!

Vera and the lake house team were amazing from the initial consultation to the big day itself. Everything was perfect, the staff are fantastic, the food was phenomenal and the location its self is picturesque. We had our reception in the waterfront pavilion over looking the lake at sunset, we wouldn't change a thing.

I could write 3,000 words on all of the small things that, when pieced together, made our experience truly special. Vera needs to be cloned, as she is a true star, and worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the whole process a breeze. I couldn't recommend Lake House enough.

We had the best weekend and wedding day at the Lakehouse for our intimate elopement. Even when the rain was pouring down everyone on how amazing the view was .. and it really was! We are so stoked we chose the lakehouse for our day and can’t wait to come back for our anniversary 😊 We loved the little touches such as games and books around the place for the kids too!

My partner and I have nothing but praise and thanks for the staff at the Lake House. Ella and her functions team were always so warm and easy to work with. Everyone on the night loved the wait staff and the food was TO DIE FOR. The terrace venue itself is gorgeous and required little decorations to enhance its already stunning features. The price per head was more expensive than most but it was well worth the amazing feedback we had from our wedding guests. "It was the best wedding we've ever been to and the food (insert satisfied sigh here)" The only complaint was that they wanted more of the amazing food! Especially the "apple" dessert. The grounds were stunning and a great place to take our bridal portraits. 100% recommend to anyone who wants a small getaway from Melbourne
