About the property

Lakeshore House offers outstanding lakeside accommodation within easy walking distance to the main hub of the Daylesford township. Its style is a relaxed elegance with comfortable couches, lots of cushions, cosy warmth and treetop views.

Its lakeside position gives ready access via the back gate for a morning walk around the lake's "peace mile" or exploration of the old gold mining water race walking trails and mineral spa pumps of Central Springs.

The four bedrooms are spacious, smartly appointed and sheets are crisp. Beds accommodate 8 guests and a sofa bed offers extra guest numbers if needed & by arrangement. The two full bathrooms are elegant and guests are treated to bath sheets and personal vanity packs,

Two living rooms on different levels have TV/video/Foxtel & CD equipment. Downstairs the living room opens onto the large slate patio overlooking the lake & garden, where a BBQ and outdoor furnishings invite you to dine 'al fresco'

The fabulous kitchen has a double oven and 5 burner stovetop with an adjacent dining room featuring an open fire and great leafy lake views. Provisions include first morning breakfast goodies to complement tea and coffee supplies.

Board games, CD's, books & videos, quoits and croquet are on hand for your enjoyment.

The garden is large and private with its own bocce court. Mature trees frame views of sparkling water & winter mists. Just beyond the gate is the lake swimming beach, picnic spots, cafes, kiddie's playground and boats for hire.

Lakeshore House offers a perfect location for family and friend groups, reunions, family wedding accommodation, special birthdays, anniversary celebrations, a quiet retreat or as a base to explore

the surrounding region of this historical Central Victorian gold history and now preeminent spa region.

Exclusive guest use of the entire property is assured..

The scenery surrounding Lakeshore House changes beautifully throughout the year....early morning views of rising lake mist, occasional WINTER snowfalls, spectacular changing leaf colours of AUTUMN, & dappled shade and sparkling lake water in SUMMER.

"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 pictures...it 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".
