"It was a wonderful stay in a beautiful, well-maintained property with spectacular lake views! ...I usually stay at Lake House for my weekends away at Daylesford but this was just as lovely"

" We loved our stay at Lakeshore House. So often the house is not quite as it appears in the was better than expected..we loved sitting in the garden by the lake, playing the various games we found downstairs, watching birds and reading....2 lounge areas was helpful with a baby... beds were so comfy it was hard to get up in the mornings... the house had a fabulous homey feel... position could not have been better, right on the lake. None of us wanted to leave!

We would definitely come again, in fact are trying to lock in dates as we speak".

Cant recommend highly enough

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained property with a fantastic Daylesford location that makes your holiday a treat. The bed configurations are a great bonus for group travellers or those with kids. The attentive owner chased up a lost watch and made sure our stay was well received with a wonderful breakfast basket. Highly recommended

Highly recommend this property

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have an extended family stay/get together over Xmas/New Year at this amazing property. From the very get go Susan was so accommodating and friendly - nothing was a bother for her (she even contacted us during our stay to make sure all was ok). The house has everything you need - the lay out is comfortable, the backyard is massive with your own entry to the lake via a gate. We felt like we were in Tuscany ! The location is amazing - a walk to everything. We will definetly be heading back to this slice of paradise

Perfect Daylesford Property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Lakeshore House with 7 girlfriends over the June long weekend and it was absolutely perfect! The house was amazing and comfortable and had everything we needed to make our 2 night stay enjoyable. The location was great and everything about our stay was incredibly easy- from making the booking to handing the key back at the end, everything went extremely smoothly. We will be back again!

Great spot for a girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

A group of six of us spent a lovely girls' weekend at Lakeshore House over the Queens Birthday weekend. The accommodation was great for our requirements -- the option of twin single beds in most of the bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a well equipped kitchen.
