An amazing location on the lake. You can easily walk into town in 15 mins and it's a lovely scenic route. The house is set up to cater for couples or singles with zipper kings on the top level that can be made up as king or single and downstairs has its own sitting area with kitchenette, bathroom and large king room. A great log fire and we were left the perfect amount of wood. Susan's little touches like the beauty packs and fire set up to light were a very welcoming touch. Great place in Daylesford if you want a bit of luxury.

We spent 3 days here with another family for a reunion. It was a great house with excellent outdoor space. The kids were able to play outside while we supervised from the patio while enjoying a glass of wine. The house was very well equipped and Susan was an excellent host.

In warmer months this is the perfect location on the lake's edge, near a perfect swimming area. Beautiful, big garden and Susan was a wonderful host. Very highly recommended!

HI Nick, We thank yo for your custom and are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Re the comment that the wifi is inaccurately reflected on the site I have just re-checked our listing and it currently correctly states that it is not available, so I am baffled by this. As it happens, we are currently in the process of installing wifi which is to be in place in the next 2 weeks and we will be changing the status of that on the Amenities page. when up and working. Regarding the photos, it is not made clear what the problem is with these...if you would care to expand on that I am only too happy to amend and clarify. We do strive to present the property very accurately. Regards, Susan

A lovely stay, a few minutes walk from the fantastic Lake House restaurant, and a lovely walk into town. Susan is a friendly and helpful host.

The Lakeshore House was absolutely gorgeous. The decor was presented beautifully and it had anything you could really need. With views over the backyard and lake it was a perfect location for a long weekend. The key pick up and drop off was very convenient and the request for an earlier check in was no hassle. Susan was very attentive and made communication incredibly easy. I would highly recommend as a sunning getaway.

We had an amazing weekend at the Lakeshore House. The backyard gate opens out onto the lake so you can't ask for a better location. Susan organised everything so well - we will definitely be coming back!

This house was home for my husband and I for several years, having previously lived overseas for some time. Work necessitated a move to Melbourne. We now delight in returning for weekend moments, rekindling visits from the local kookaburras, enjoying the serenity of the morning mists and the wind down of twilight. We have shared special birthdays, weddings and family time there. Friends and guests enjoy its tranquility & seclusion together with the handiness of the Daylesford hub only a minute's drive away for supplies or the spa facilities. We relish special dining spots, touring the local charming townships, art galleries and golf courses.
