Overlooking Lake Daylesford, this country house hotel is set on a wooded and sheltered hillside with fruit and olive orchards. The dignified yellow clapboard main structure houses a homey library and an attractive dining room with a central freestanding fireplace. The restaurant offers contemporary, locally inspired Australian cuisine backed by a superlative wine list. Many of the 33 rooms feature original artwork, living rooms and balconies or patios with water views. A serene spa offers secluded treetop cabins with private mineral-water hydrotherapy tubs. The grounds encompass a tennis pavilion, a seasonal infinity swimming pool, a sculpture garden and a working art studio. On-site events include wine tastings and cooking classes that highlight regional ingredients.
