About the property

This Japanese inspired timber home has a wall of floor to ceiling glass in the living area overlooking natural bush land. The enclosed garden area adds to the ambiance of this retreat for two. If tasteful simplicity and quality with a difference appeal to you, then Musk Creek Hollow will be to your liking. Located only a short seven minute drive from the centre of Daylesford, this property is both private and close to all the attractions that this beautiful region has to offer. Pet friendly, with a fully fenced internal garden, Musk Creek Hollow will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated.

Property description

This property captures a wonderful rustic Japanese aura. The long low building sits like a floating platform amidst the naturalistic landscaped garden. The structure's weathered, timber walls blend with the surrounds. The main expanse of the building, except for the glass walls on either side, has the open quality of a breezeway. This is the living space, barely separated from the babbling creek setting and the Japanese style sculptured garden. Silver birches, hydrangeas and iris are just a few of the feature plantings. Beyond the creek, cows and sheep graze on Mohawk Hill.

The cottage interior also has a naturally simple style. Smooth white wall and ceiling surfaces compliment elements of wood and glass. Carpet provides a quiet, soft texture underfoot. The focal point of the lounge area is a delightful wood burner. A big comfortable couch invites you to laze away the hours reading a favourite book or listening to a CD.

description of Rooms/cottage

The bedroom has a queen size bed that faces a large picture window into the private, fully fenced garden. There is an en suite bathroom.

A large flat screen, digital TV with built in DVD player is located in the living room.

In addition to the wood fire in the living area there is a split system air conditioner. There is also a NOBO panel heater in the bedroom.

Loved this little place, dog friendly and good secure yard (handy as it's on a main road) close to winery's and a short drive into Daylesford or Hepburn. Owners are super helpful - highly recommend

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly, thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Musk Creek Hollow. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and that you felt your dog was also safely accommodated. Passing Clouds winery is just around the corner and is a delightful venue for a lazy lunch enjoying beautiful local wines. I hope to be able to assist you again sometime in the future. Cheers, Martin

Glorious retreat in the countryside.

  • 5 of 5

It is not often that you enter a rental property and immediately feel the city tension drain from you. Using clever design this small house in Musk has been transformed in to a wonderfully relaxing space. Situated just minutes from Daylesford and the Wombat state forest it is possible to walk in the surrounding countryside and enjoy mineral springs and some of the state's most beautiful gardens.

Owner's Response: Hi Ian, thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you had a relaxing time at Musk Creek Hollow. You should try and wrangle a visit during autumn or winter, then you can make use of the wood burning fire and enjoy some 'you' time lazing on the couch with a good book or watching a dvd. I look forward to your return visit. Cheers, Martin

Warm and cosy....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Musk House. Was a cold weekend but the house was very comfortable and warm with a well equipped kitchen as we did most of our own cooking. Would definitely return in the warmer months to utilise outdoor areas.
