Loop The Lake Weekend 2014: To The Streets: Our second time for Loops the Lake. THANKS SO MUCH!! we had an "Awesome" time up the Lake
This really is the idyllic place for a relaxing, fun-filled family holiday; no wonder we keep coming back! The home is very comfortable and is set among trees and bird life. Whether it's hanging round 'home' (on the decks or inside) or out enjoying the beautiful surrounding lake area (swimming, boating, walks, or relaxing on the foreshore), it is very easy to enjoy your holiday with 'Streets' Retreat' as your base.
