This place is a gem!

"What a delight to be able to spend the weekend in one of the best small hotels in Australia. The dinner in the restaurant is on a whole different level to most other places, so very delicious."

Lake House is a tranquil retreat that includes rooms and suites in either a waterfront or lodge setting. Six acres of abundant and fruitful gardens extend down to the waters of Lake Daylesford and provide guests with immediate access to the lake shore and the Wombat State Forest beyond. Given the opportunity to explore the grounds, guests will come upon significant trees and orchard areas which include olives, crabapple, stone fruits, apple, quince and medlar. The earliest plantings of stringy barks, Yunnan and Lombardy poplars and pin oaks now form a canopy over the site and are populated with rosellas, currajongs, gang gangs, cockatoos and kookaburras.

A myriad of sculptures and artwork from some of the region’s top artists are dotted around the garden. Extensive outdoor lakefront terraces, or quieter nooks like the pavillion overlooking the full sized tennis court offer the opportunity for a quiet drink or the pleasure of a leisurely peruse of the papers. A large lounge with open fire, billiards and a good selection of reading materials, is a popular destination in cooler weather. A DVD library of classic favourites affords additional opportunity to cocoon and relax indoors.

The renowned restaurant draws appreciative foodies from Australia and around the world. In the kitchens, a talented team under the guidance of co-owner and Culinary Director Alla Wolf-Tasker and Head Chef David Green work from the ground up producing cutting edge, modern Australian cuisine with an emphasis on seasonal and regional ingredients. The award winning Cellar and its list with over 1000 references keeps wine buffs happy with its edgy and interesting selection of wines from around the world and of course closer to home.

Resident artist Allan Wolf-Tasker whose work hangs in private and public collections around the world has a studio on site which is open by invitation and appointment to Lake House guests. Wolf-Tasker's canvases are on display throughout the property as are works by other artists from the family's private collection.

In amongst the cool fern gully and surrounded by waterfall fed streams and springs - the Salus Spa is an oasis of tranquility. Accents of blond wood and splashes of "Tiffany" blue in the furnishings combine with large nudes by renowned local painter David Bromley to create airy relaxation spaces around ten treatment areas.. Hydrotherapy in private treetop mineral water spas, advanced performance facials and seasonal signature body treatments provide for easy on site indulgence.

  • We celebrated an anniversary at the Lake House in Daylesford. What a wonderful place with a lake view room and a magnificent degustation meal in the evening. The room was very comfortable and superbly presented. After a walk around the lake we readied ourselves for dinner. The seven courses were great with a Wagyu tartare, a scallop dish and all were quality throughout. Highly recommended.

  • We enjoyed a three night package staying in one of the suites. It was very relaxing. Breakfast is excellent with plenty of choices, cooked to order. One evening we had the seven course degustation dinner with matching wines - every mouthful was divine. Magnificent!

  • What a delight to be able to spend the weekend in one of the best small hotels in Australia. The dinner in the restaurant is on a whole different level to most other places, so very delicious. The breakfast is also very nice. Our suite was big, warm and cosy, even in winter, and beautifully equipped. Oh yes, we went to the spa too. Very nice and all Elemis products which I love. This place is a gem!

    - Louise
  • Exceptional as always. We have stayed here five to six times - each time - superb. The staff are fantastic and make your stay a relaxing, hassle free experience. The quality of food and accommodation was excellent. We had a couple's massage - first class.
