About Lake House Daylesford
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 access to the lake’s shore and the Wombat State Forest beyond.
Guests are given the opportunity to explore the grounds and will come upon the Kitchen Garden planted out with herbs and edible flowers. Orchard areas include olives, crabapple, stone fruits, apple, and quince. 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 pavilion 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 an 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 opportunities to cocoon and relax indoors.
Lake House Restaurant
The dining room holds 2 chefs hats from the national Good Food Guide and multiple awards for it’s cellar and service. A team passionate about hospitality delivers beautiful, modern, seasonal food matched with wines from one of Australia’s best wine lists and works with great Australian produce including a raft of excellent small scale local suppliers and growers and their own Dairy Flat Farm. The latter with almost 40 acres is located within 10 minutes of the flagship restaurant and includes 5 acres of productive vegetable gardens (where produce is handpicked for morning deliveries) olive grove, heirloom orchard, vineyard and a bake house specializing in slow fermented sourdough for Lake House guests.
The restaurant offers magnificent views through wonderfully large windows to the treetops and shores of the lake. Large expanses of outdoor deck also offer the opportunity for aperitif with beautiful views.
Guests enjoying drinks at dusk will likely witness the daily ritual of the resident kookaburra family flying in to be fed and the flocks of cockatoos circling the 40 year old gums, silver birch and poplars looking for their evening perch.
