The fabled Lake House nestles on the shores of Lake Daylesford. 35 rooms and suites range from country house comfortable to sumptuous accommodation.

Gardens, cascade to a manicured foreshore. Works of art adorn walls and garden nooks. Some are by well known artist and proprietor Allan Wolf Tasker whose studio is open to hotel guests. Paths lead to lake walks and to the more rigorous hiking trails of Wombat Forest. A full sized tennis court and bocce area offer additional activity.

The multi award winning Lake House Salus Day Spa is a nine treatment oasis of tranquillity offering a myriad of indulgent treatments.

Situated amongst its own gardens, the Retreat at Lake House, offers a sumptuously appointed private country house within the Lake House grounds. A private massage pavilion and a butler delivering delicious food and drinks, add to this very special experience...

After a busy day, guests gather for drinks at the bar. Conversation is of 'holes in one' (despite the kangaroos), visits to quirky boutiques and galleries, rare finds in bookshops. At dinner, robust country air appetites are sated by contemporary seasonal menus featuring produce from local growers. In many cases, Executive Chef and leading light of Australia's foodie industry - Alla Wolf Tasker has been dealing with these for over two decades.

Service in the multi award winning restaurant is knowledgeable but relaxed, offering "fine dining with our top button undone"

Porterage, daily newspaper, internet, access to a collection of cult and classic DVDs and car parking - all complimentary. Room service and concierge bookings are available on demand.
