The Owner Loves….
“We have enjoyed two generations of life in this extraordinary spot on Lake Connewarre, and still can’t believe it’s such a secret spot! Being on this narrow part of the Bellarine Peninsula, on a still day you can hear the horns of the ships on Port Phillip Bay. We will miss the twinkling lights of Barwon Heads, and watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks on the Bluff.”
