Great 5 star reviews have been coming in from our guests, here's what some have to say after their time at Lake View Derby.

October 2022

"Great place for a bigger family - enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back again."

"Beautiful place with a cosy fireplace and everything you need for a weekend out on the tracks or snuggled up at home."

April 2022

"Absolute perfection. Will stay again!! Outdoor showers a huge success for after the rainy day ride and mud room was PERFECT."

“This house was just perfect. Awesome location and great set up for the bikes with outdoor shower, bike wash area and bike lock up undercover storage. The house itself was a fantastic set up with all single beds with top quality sheets and doona’s, great kitchen and the 2 bathrooms. Everything was spotless and we didn’t want for anything. Cosy fireplace and view were a bonus. We’ll be back for sure!!”

“Great accommodation and well kitted kitchen. We had a fantastic weekend!”

“Absolutely outstanding! This place has everything, the shed for bike storage, outdoor hot shower to rinse off pre coming inside, the mud room, very well equipped kitchen. The beds are ridiculously comfy, hotel standard. Excellent sized living area, and the two bathrooms were fantastic with so many muddy people after a very wet Blue Tier. Great communication with the host, easy check in, check out process was simple - unlike many air bnb’s! We will definitely stay again, providing the place is not already booked out! Only suggestion would be if you are needing a cot message in advance and request it. I assumed there would be one (my error), the host dropped one off very quickly which was lovely, but would have been difficult if we had arrived late at night to no cot.”

“Great location & wonderful facilities. Lovely stay.”

“A great property for our latest stay in Derby. The property is well designed, and really well appointed with crockery etc in the kitchen and for the BBQ and quality appliances and fixtures. Plenty of blankets, plenty of room and the mud/drying room is a great addition. Balcony area is perfect for relaxing in the afternoon, great view out over the valley.”

We will definitely be back.”

“A lovely winter getaway in our home state. Nice big windows to take in the frosty morning view followed by gorgeous winter sunshine. The fire warmed us up nicely, everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was super clean and our hosts communication was clear and informative. Close and convenient to the trails, highly recommended this stay and Derby!”

“Getting to the point where we will stop counting the times we have stayed here. You want for nothing and hosts have literally thought of every comfort. You won’t be disappointed.”

“Fantastic location, great views and a big ol’ fireplace. What more does one need! Megan was very accommodating when it came to setting up the house to our specific needs making for a seamless trip.”

“We had a great stay at the house, it is warm and very comfortable. The mud room entry was a plus as it was a wet and muddy weekend. Very handy also to have two bathrooms. It was great having the bike storage and washing facility.”

April 2021

“We had a wonderful 3-night stay at Lake View Derby 'Cascade'. The house is great for a family + friends and the layout of the house is comfortable, super clean and well appointed. For large groups and double the fun you could hire the adjoining property. The mud room, outdoor shower and bike shed is great for managing kids post ride. The wood heater warms the whole house and the beds are very big and comfortable for winter retreats. Just a short walk to cafes and bike shops and a slightly longer but easy walk to the lake and sauna. Easy walk/ride to track head and shuttles. Being slightly higher up on the hill the house gets plenty of sunshine and beautiful views over the town. We highly recommend the property - and Megan was very helpful and a great communicator.”

“This is an exceptional space - still new with thoughtful touches like fresh coffee and plunger! (Thank you) - For our family the space, cleanliness and fire heater were all a hit.”

It had absolutely everything we needed for a great mountain biking trip. The MTB stables and outside wash area was great. Very clean and well designed to cater for small groups or families. All the appliances you need to self cater and clean up. Super fast wifi also! Thanks for having us!”
