Lovely large country home, sleeps 14, 2Q 1K split & 4 sets bunks, spa pool, acres, WIFI, kids ok

The Gums is a very special country home, located around twelve minutes drive from Daylesford and set on 44 acres of bush, trees and pasture.  Ideal for groups of up to fourteen people, this is a fantastic house for two or three families or girls / boys groups. The Gums is furnished with style and comfort, country appeal and attention to detail for a group stay.  If you are looking for a large home for your escape to the country, this property will definitely not disappoint.

Guests share two bathrooms with showers, plus there is another toilet and shower in the barn, where you will also find a 6 seater outdoor spa pool, a wood fire and a rustic entertainment area . We supply linen for the bedroom and bathroom, however, for your comfort we recommend you bring extra towels if you are going to use the spa.

Heating and cooling are covered by split systems in the living and dining; and there are 3 wood fires for cosiness and ambience – two in the house and one in the barn.  The large deck has a gas BBQ area where the adults can relax with a glass of wine or a coffee and watch the children play around the garden.

The Gums is in a beautiful location with plenty of space. The kitchen was full of utensils and we found we had everything we needed. And the HOT TUB!! Great stay.

Easy drive to Daylesford; accessible road to beautiful, secluded rural/forest setting. Slept 12 with ease - beds have electric blankets, Kitchen well fitted-out. Bathrooms very good (no bath). Dining table spectacular - fits 12 comfortably when extended. A fire in two living rooms warmed the house effectively on a very cold weekend. Gorgeous broad verandah, well furnished for eating. Original stables hide a large room with a third fire, toilet and shower and great hot tub. Kids and adults loved it. 5/5

We will be back.” 10/10 We have stayed here before and hence why we are back. The house is well equipped and extremely clean with Comfortable beds. It was a very wintery weekend but who knew when we were in the house. So cosy and warm. Kangaroos and Kookaburras kept us amused. It is a short drive into the town of Daylesford but really it is a great place to go to chill and relax with walks and a nice wine with good friends or family

We had a lovely weekend at The Gums. A great house for a large group and very cosy. Generous piles of firewood and a great kitchen too. We will be back for sure!
