Lake House

Situated on the pretty shores of Lake Daylesford, the Lake House is a winning combination of country charm, comfortable accommodations, decadent spa treatments and delectable meals.

Thirty years on and the Lake House is still enchanting visitors and diners alike. Voted Australia’s Best Regional Hotel in 2014, the property is a collection of 33 unique rooms and suites, two Chef Hat restaurant and avant-garde spa, set on 6 acres of sprawling gardens dotted with sculptures at the edge of a lake. A popular spa resort destination in the early 20th century, the town of Daylesford is synonymous with healing thermal springs.

Guests can spend hours exploring the property and its surrounds; there are walking trails leading to Wombat State Forest, a well-tended kitchen garden and a library with an immense selection of culinary books. Outside of the relaxing day spa the property also has a Jacuzzi & sauna, beautiful infinity pool and tennis court. The onsite cooking school is also not to be missed if you wish to try your hand learning new techniques from some of the country’s best chefs, with classes running on select Saturdays and Sundays.

Original artworks, carefully chosen curios and quality textiles ensure that no two rooms are exactly the same. A range of configurations and layouts provide plenty of choice – the sumptuous Sutton Suite for instance would be ideal for a romantic weekend away. Guests have free access to the tennis court, pool and sauna, while parking is complimentary.

The nationally acclaimed Lake House Restaurant is not to be missed – hotel guests get priority reservations. Almost every ingredient here is locally grown or sourced, from heirloom fruit to rare breed pork, and every dish is cooked from scratch. The Salus Spa is also a must-visit with an extensive range of nourishing therapies.
