LAKE Macquarie is a large coastal lagoon 1 ½ hours drive north of central Sydney via the F3. Dora Creek is a small village on the western shores. The nice thing is that few know about LAKE Macquarie (or Dora Creek) which makes it such a good destination for a quiet time away for just the two of you.

SUNDAY DRIVE around the scenic lake stopping at lookouts, cafes and galleries…

WATERFRONT WALK hand in hand along scenic nature reserve at your door…

Afternoon tea served on arrival... "Two giant slices of heavily frosted hummingbird cake, juicy figs, two vanilla melting moments and an enormous pot of English breakfast tea have my companion and I grinning from ear to ear."

Short walk or drive to a choice of RESTAURANTS.

GOURMET DINNER at Christina's Sun - Mon by arrangement - 2 courses $50, 3 courses $70/person... "The meals, atmosphere and locality all add to this perfect romantic stay." ... "...and your culinary expertise is second to none."

GOURMET BREAKFAST with espresso coffee included in sunny cafe style lounge at a time to suit you, before a leisurely check out at MIDDAY.

"Breakfast at Christina's the following morning is something else - seasonal fruit salad, a neat presentation of yoghurt with a crispy sugar-iced wafer, fresh orange juice, tea and coffee and those eggs benedict. It looks and tastes terrific."... "...your coffee can embarrass professional coffee makers."

"THE BEST B&B I've ever stayed in for a long time.
I was impressed by the look of the building, then Tina and John greeted us and made us feel very welcome. They showed us our room and it was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing the presentation and the food was full of surprises it was like having your breakfast in a 5 star hotel - I think this is even better. Tina and John such a nice couple and they are very helpful at all times and they know the area very well so they can give you lots of good tips on where to go and see if you are looking for something to do during your stay. Overall if anyone is looking for a romantic get away or somewhere to relax this is the place. You can be as active as you want or just relax and chill out.” – Trip Advisor – 4 Jan 10

"AMAZING It was a great weekend away and exactly what we needed. By far the best hospitality of any B&B we have stayed at, John and Tina made us feel welcomed (without overcrowding us). They were very helpful; providing suggestions for things to do/places to eat and kindly arranged kayaks, dinner reservations etc for us. The mermaid room was very romantic! I loved the shower and double spa and of course the food was divine! I would definitely recommend staying at Christina's, you will love it!" - Trip Advisor - 24 Nov 09

"GORGEOUS B&B I can't quite figure out what the best part of the B & B was, but the owners have certainly added plenty of little perks which had made the experience a very special one indeed. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and when we opted to dine in one night, we were pleasantly surprised to be treated to a scrumptious meal that was even better than what we had in a local restaurant the night before. The decent range of DVDs and complimentary night cap in the common room were also some very special touches. We stayed in the Mermaid room which had a spacious double spa and a separate shower area which were both very clean (and I can be quite picky when it comes to cleanliness!). The property is beautifully designed and decorated, and is a true hidden gem within a short drive from metropolitan Sydney. We'll definitely be back!" Trip Advisor - 8 Nov 09

Kristie Lau discovers this QUIET LAKESIDE HAVEN is full to the brim with surprises."
Verdict: John and Tina's excellent hospitality will lure us back.
Why you would go: It's peaceful, comfortable and the breakfasts are superb.”
- SUN-HERALD WEEKENDER - 29 March 2009
"LEAVE ALL YOUR TROUBLES BEHIND and head for the hills or the coast. Two hours from the city is a LUXURIOUS LAKESIDE HAVEN.. by CityRail.
In a busy world where even finding time to take a break can be a chore, it is nice to know there remain a few holiday treasures within two hours of the hustle and bustle..." - Bonny Symons-Brown - AAP - Mike Smith - DAILY TELEGRAPH - 26 March 2009.
“This stylish Dora Creek residence…. On the ground floor the house provides three serene, interesting and individually decorated bed and breakfast suites, each with private balconies, en-suites and disabled access, guest living and dining space and a separate area for John’s architectural practice...” – Sally Croxton – NEWCASTLE HERALD WEEKENDER 28 February 2009.
The perks of a waterfront holiday without the expense, crowds and attitude of popular destinations… Dora Creek is in easy reach of Hunter and Sydney residents, making it perfect for a quick weekend getaway.
Owners Tina Jaffray and John Mason take the bed and breakfast and sprinkle it with something special, from afternoon tea on arrival to the fresh local eggs served Benedict-style with caviar the next morning (at time to suit you) and a generous midday checkout – all standard…” - Bonny Symons-Brown – AAP – Newcastle Herald Weekender 17 January 2009
