The holiday house's four bedrooms are comfortable, featuring individual heating and beds fitted with electric blankets, made up before your arrival. For your convenience, the rental's bedding configuration is flexible. Two bedrooms offer a queen bed. The additional two bedrooms include twin king singles, which can be zipped together to form a king double on request.

This Daylesford home is serviced by two bathrooms with walk-in showers and vanities. The main bathroom includes a luxurious deep tub. You'll also find a separate second toilet. All towels, soap and bathmats are provided, so you don't need to bring your own and can fully focus on unwinding on your getaway. Complete laundry facilities onsite (front loading washer, dryer, ironing board and iron) further assist in creating a hassle-free holiday.

While you stay with us, spend some time in the landscaped gardens surrounding this Daylesford rental property. Enjoy a chilled glass of wine on the patio or fire up the BBQ for some family grilling one evening. There's plenty of outdoor furniture to cater to all your guests.

Ithaca House is a Daylesford rental suitable for friends' weekends away, getaways with the family or weddings at the nearby Convent Gallery. Midweek, we offer affordable rates to suit smaller numbers of guests.

The usual arrival time for your stay at Ithaca House is after 3.00 pm. You are welcome to stay until 11 am on the day of your departure, so you can enjoy an extra morning in Daylesford without feeling rushed. But we can often be flexible if these times are too restrictive, so please ask us!

Perfect setup

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Icatha House. The house was perfectly laid out for our 2 families, spotlessly clean and everything had been thought of. The beds were so comfortable, bathrooms spacious, kitchen very functional for 2 families cooking different meals at the same time. The kitchen and whole house was impressively stocked and set up, everything had been thought of.

The location is great, a 3 minute walk into town.

We will definitely stay again.

excellent well furnished/equipped cottage.

  • 4 of 5

This property was ideal for our "girls weekend"! Loved the layout with all the bedrooms at the front of the house & kitchen/dining at the rear. Our group ranges from 59 to 85 so it was great to find a property that could accommodate all of us. The weather was perfect so we also made good use of the outdoors area. Great place! Highly recommend except for when we want it next!!

Warm, Comfortable and Excellently Located

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend getaway in this well appointed, very comfortable 4 bedroom home. With a group of 4 couples it was excellent to have access to 2 separate bathrooms and living areas as well as a spacious kitchen and outdoor area. An excellent place to stay for a large group and so close to the main strip of Daylesford, we will definitely be returning to Ithaca House!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Ithaca House for a couple of nights after our wedding. It was the perfect space to unwind, especially sitting in front of the wood fire!

Great location, beautifully clean and inviting, we loved it!

Another wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay (our 2nd time in the same property) and had the opportunity to enjoy the lovely garden this time with the warmer weather. Great facilities, plenty of space to entertain or relax and such a central location. Highly recommend this property to anybody wanting to enjoy a wonderful getaway - you don't even have to leave the house to have a great time! We will certainly return when next in Daylesford, and I must compliment the owners on being professional, courteous and always available if you have any queries. Thank you!
