Who Said Romance is Dead?…

Secrets on the Lake… I don’t think there has ever been a place more aptly named! Over the years, George, Aldy, and the staff at Secrets have become grand masters of subterfuge as we help our guests organize secret surprises and romantic gesture for their loved ones. What started out as a surprise cheese platter and champagne chilling in your room, or secret ‘I love you’ or ‘Will you marry me’ written in rose petals at your treehouse door or inside on your treehouse floor, has evolved to become one of the highlights of running this business for us. It’s all about sharing the love!

We have certain guest who come back each year and try to outdo each other in more and more involved secret romantic gestures and surprises. In fact, these lovebirds have even flown in by helicopter for a private romantic lunch for 2 on the Lakehouse deck! This year a gentleman came to us a few months before his anniversary getaway and asked us about organising a secret lakeside picnic for his wife. Our instructions were… make it candles and cushions, French champagne and fluffy rugs, decadent food platters, peace, and privacy. Oh… and can it be right on the edge of the lake where no one can see us?? Of course!!!  And it worked out so well we have decided to offer this option for any of our guest staying with us.

We would like to introduce our latest romantic creation… a Lakeside Luxury Interlude in the extra-specially made Snug Hut tucked away in private nook right on the shores of Lake Baroon. Are you thinking of ways to propose? Is it a special anniversary or birthday? Or do you just want to show your partner how much you love and appreciate all they are and all they do? Then read on….

When you book to stay at Secrets on the Lake, you have the option to book another secret! The Lakeside Luxury Interlude takes spoiling your loved one to a whole other level. Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience and book an intimate meal for two in the private Snug Hut. The Snug is set up with plush carpets, gorgeous rugs and soft cushions for your luxurious picnic comfort. Wooden tables, platters, and intricate candle pillars adorn this secluded space for two, creating a truly unique and special place for you to capture a memory with your loved one.

The Luxury Lakeside Interlude includes a beautiful cheese platter with selected local cheeses, antipasti, pate and fruits, accompanied by melba toast and crackers, and finished off with an icy bottle of Louis Perdriex (French Champagne) chilling in an ice bucket. And as always, if you want to add your own special touches then we are happy to help make the Luxury Lakeside Interlude even more perfect for you. Why not add a rose petal ‘I love you’ or ‘Will you marry me’ spelled out in white rocks near the specially designed Snug Hut. Want to fly in by helicopter… then we can connect you.
