It's a getaway trip from kids for both of us. (in fact, it's more to mum) After 10 years plus of marriage, Acorn helps to light up the "romantic" atmosphere for us again. Thanks you so much!!! It's a warm, lovely nest, many little surprises ( I love the little acorn decor made to the head of the bed, the owner must be a detailed and caring person. Thank you once again! lovely stay, happy great memories with your place.

We will be back for future anniversaries.

This is our first time in Daylesford and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

As soon as we walked in it felt like home and we are so thankful for all the special treats you provided us - champagne and chocolates in front of the fireplace, how special! The amazing collection of DVD's and boardgames were exactly what we needed to unwind and relax. Please don't be made but we won't be telling anyone about this incredible cottage - we want to keep it to ourself and make it our little getaway spot!! Cannot thank you enough!

The Acorn was the most romantic, relaxing and peaceful place to come to for our 2nd anniversary! The attention to detail (especially the little acorn ornaments scattered around) was magnificent. It brought us even closer together and we made some amazing memories.

Could not recommend this place any more! Thank you for an amazing experience, can't wait to come back!

Adam and Melissa 13th April 2014

Thank you for such a lovely place. From living such busy lives, sometimes we forget to relax and this place allowed us to do just that.

Great place to celebrate our one year together.

Whether your Getaway is about indulgence, relaxation or experimentation, Daylesford and Hepburn Springs have it all. Indulge with treatments at the many spa and massage therapy centres in the area, sample the high quality of local food and wine. Relax alongside beautiful lake Daylesford, or stand at the top of Mount Franklin and soak up the view that goes on forever.

The garden

Stroll through the wonderful garden, taking in the amazing view of the Wombat Forest and beyond to Mt. Franklin. Admire the rhododendrons, be captivated by the intoxicating fragrance of the winter Daphne's or simply take a seat amongst the vibrant colours of the Autumn leaves. The Acorn truly is a destination for all Seasons.

The Acorn

  • 3 of 5

Seven (7) night stay; linen/towels should have been replaced at some stage.

Consideration for supply of additional fire wood for longer stays; given the fireplace is a central feature to the experience of The Acorn. Lawns needed cutting and would have added to the beauty of the property and our experience given the length of our stay - A follow-up call by Property Manager to check all was favorable would have been appreciated as new comers to the district.

The issue we had was that the windows would develop condensation on them in the afternoons and you could not see the views outside. In the mornings the window ledges had that much water from condensation that it looked like somebody tipped glasses of water on them. The timber at the bottom of the windows are rotting away. Will not be returning to this proerty.
