Taking the Waters at Lake House - Luxury Travel\'s Top Food & Wine Experiences

More than 30 years ago, chef Alla Wolf-Tasker began encouraging local farmers to produce niche crops for her to cook in her Daylesford restaurant. These days, her philosophy has spread throughout the local area, but the Lake House, a modern waterside restaurant and boutique hotel, is till the jewel in regional Victoria\'s crown.
As well as the 33 rooms and suites, the Lake House has more recently added The Retreat, a two bedroom luxe country house. There\'s also the award winning Swedish style Salus Spa, with treatments that change according to the season.
Wandering around the beautiful grounds, with its kitchen garden and orchards, or the Daylesford shops will work up an appetite. Birds join guests on the deck for breakfast, but the lunches and dinners at the two-hat restaurant are what people travel miles to enjoy. Be sure to indulge in the tasting menu for the full Lake House experience. It will no doubt include a signature dish of smoked Skipton eel, a byproduct of Alla\'s Russian heritage.
