Lake House is a tranquil and picturesque small luxury hotel with 35 rooms and suites boasting one of Australia's most awarded restaurants & cellars, the Salus Spa, retreat facilities such as tennis court, extensive lounges with open fire and games room - all nestled within 6 acres of country gardens on the shores of beautiful Lake Daylesford.

Given the opportunity to explore the grounds, guests will come upon the Kitchen Garden planted out with herbs and edible flowers. Orchard areas include olives, crabapple,stone fruits, apple,quince and medlar. The earliest plantings of stringy barks,Yunnan and Lombardy poplars and pin oaks now form a canopy over the site and are populated with rosellas, currajongs, gang gangs, cockatoos and kookaburras.

A myriad of sculptures and artwork from some of the region’s top artists are dotted around the garden. Extensive outdoor lakefront terraces, or quieter nooks like the pavillion overlooking the full sized tennis court offer the opportunity for a quiet drink or the pleasure of a leisurely peruse of the papers. A large lounge with open fire, billiards and a good selection of reading materials, is a popular destination in cooler weather. A DVD library of classic favourites affords additional opportunity to cocoon and relax indoors.

The renowned restaurant draws appreciative foodies from Australia and around the world. In the kitchens, a talented team under the guidance of Co-Owner and Executive Chef Alla Wolf- Tasker and Head Chef David Green work from the ground up producing cutting edge, modern Australian cuisine with an emphasis on seasonal and regional ingredients.

The Award Winning Cellar and its 800-odd reference list keeps wine buffs happy with its edgy and interesting selection of wines from around the world and of course closer to home.

Co-Owner and resident artist Allan Wolf-Tasker whose work hangs in private and public collections around the world has a studio on site which is open by invitation and appointment to Lake House guests. Wolf-Tasker's canvases are on display throughout the property as are works by other artists from the family's private collection.

In amongst the cool fern gully and surrounded by waterfall fed streams and springs - the Salus Spa is an oasis of tranquility. Accents of blond wood and splashes of "Tiffany" blue in the furnishings combine with large nudes by renowned local painter David Bromley to create airy relaxation spaces around ten treatment areas.. Hydrotherapy in private treetop mineral water spas, advanced performance facials and seasonal signature body treatments provide for easy on site indulgence.
