A Hotel with Heart & Soul

Lake House lies on the shores of beautiful Lake Daylesford. Walking tracks lead from the property, around the lake and into the Wombat State Forest, complete with local fauna and the abundant health creating mineral springs the area is renowned for. The nearest one bubbles out right on Lake House's doorstep.

Exploring the property is in itself an adventure. Guests may like to have a hit of tennis followed by tea and refreshments in the tennis pavilion or enjoy a glass of wine by the open fire in the Argyle Library Bar while immersed in the extensive culinary book collection. Given the opportunity to explore the gardens you will come upon the Kitchen Garden planted with edible shoots and flowers, a myriad of sculptures and artwork from many of the region's top artists, extensive outdoor terraces overlooking the lake shore and established country gardens with everything from koala-loved stringy barks to lilac, Daphne, quince, plum and apple trees.

The property attracts a large number of native birds including rosella, parrot, kingfisher & kookaburra. Plush soft toy versions are for sale in reception. $10 from each toy goes to the local Hepburn Wildlife Shelter. 

All residential guests receive complimentary car parking, porterage, daily newspaper and internet access. Access to our cult & classic DVD library and use of the full size tennis court, sauna and spa are also complimentary.

Guests also receive priority reservations in both the restaurant and spa. However please consider confirming your reservations for both restaurant & spa prior to arrival.

We also offer additional services such as in room dining or a butler service for evening drinks. Perhaps we can arrange a picnic hamper, a private tasting in The Cellar or a car service back to the airport for you. We can also give you recommendations on the best local wineries, or give you directions to the closest place to land a helicopter.

For those after a little blissful pampering, the Salus Spa awaits.

Children at Lake House.
At Lake House we enjoy watching multi generations of guests come together over a meal or a weekend away. After 30 years we are seeing the next generation come and stay with their own children. We do accommodate our younger clientele as much as possible by offering nanny services, kids welcome packs, DVDs & activities such as feeding the ducks, geese and kookaburras. However Lake House is situated on an unfenced lake amongst 6 acres of rambling country gardens. We ask all guests travelling with children to be mindful of our geography whilst enjoying your time at Lake House.
