Enchanting, with a fabulous lakeside location

Recently renovated and decorated, Possum Cottage is a Lake Daylesford precinct institution. In all seasons, Possum Cottage is the epitome of a relaxing and ultra comfortable retreat. Possum Cottage has loads of character and you’ll be reluctant to leave. In winter, relax in front of the fire and in the milder months, enjoy the extensive outdoor deck area with filtered views down to the lake, ideal for that lazy afternoon or  maybe a barbeque. You are also so close to all that Daylesford is renowned for, from the multi-award winning Lake House to a stroll around beautiful Lake Daylesford’s “Peace Mile”, the eclectic Book Barn and the varied bird life that abounds the lake. And you’re walking distance to Daylesford’s main street  with all its cafés, exciting shops and day spas.

Guest Reviews

Lovely setting and views - on the lake. Peaceful and quiet with very private house. But also easy to walk to town. Nicely landscaped and all spaces thoughtfully decorated. Felt homely.

Staying with a friend from Europe and the house did not disappoint. The view from the living area, the very efficient central heating, lovely decorations, really a wonderful house.

Possum Cottage was one of the loveliest places we've ever stayed at. It was a gorgeous home. The woman who checked us in and out of DABS was lovely, helpful, and gave very quick, professional service that was also friendly.
