About the property

Within walking distance to Hepburn Springs and only 3.2kms from the Daylesford GPO, Artisan is a delightful and homely miner's cottage with modern, artistic décor.

Artisan has polished floorboards throughout and a fully equipped kitchen overlooking a sunny living and dining area. Guests can relax by the fire or in the deep luxurious double spa.

Artisan also features a diverse and eclectic selection of DVDs, CDs, board games and books to make your stay as interesting and enjoyable as possible.

Another feature of Artisan is the 'Retreat' - a perfect break-out space for solitude, writing, reading, yoga, meditation, or even working away from home. The Retreat comes complete with work table, yoga mats, essential oils, and comfy lie-about cushions - and only a few steps away from the main house! Magnifique!

Artisan is pet friendly with a fully fenced yard.

Second bedroom can be configured for a queen bed or two singles. (If you wish to make use of the the second bedroom there is an additional cost for this. Please contact us to confirm price)

Quaint property with room for improvement!

  • 2 of 5

Quaint but not properly maintained. Lawn not cut, dirty glasses in kitchen, dead insects on bedside table closest to window, fur/hair balls on kitchen floor and Dustbuster unusable as totally clogged. On the upside, bed and pillows lovely and comfortable and the bathroom with double spa was excellent.

Owner's Response: Dear Cherie, We do appreciate you taking the time to review your stay at Artisan Retreat, and we do take on board all of your feedback. I’m not sure if you happened to notice our other reviews, which all have a 5 star rating for cleanliness, so of course this feedback has come as a shock to us. We will be addressing all of the items you mentioned and have complete confidence that we will have Artisan Retreat back to its 5 star rating immediately. Thanks again. Jodie

Owner's Response: Dear Anthea, Thanks for taking the time to review Artisan Retreat and we are glad you found it cosy. We have noted that you rated ‘quality’ at 3 stars which is below the standard we wish to provide to our guests. Was there anything particular you noticed that warranted that score? We regularly update our furnishings, accessories and electrical equipment to keep everything at a high standard so I would be interested to know. Kind regards, Jodie

A beautiful experience

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled extensively around this country and have seldom enjoyed a stay as much as we did in Daylesford and at Artisan.

Accommodation is often a gamble and there is always something to mar the experience. Therefore it was an extremely pleasant surprise to find Artisan living up to its claims. It was an extremely enjoyable experience, from the peace and quiet, to the well-equipped cottage, to the beautiful fire, to the well-stocked cupboards.

It was a beautiful experience and one that we shall hope to repeat.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and welcoming with all the little thoughtful inclusions which made it a stand out as soon as you walked in the door. Felt so relaxed in the cozy, well appointed rooms and the calm, quiet atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would come back again for sure.
