Secluded setting with a spacious spa room

The Orchard is an enchanting cottage nestled in two and a half acres of garden and fruit trees near the picture-perfect Lake Jubilee. This enchanting English-style garden and apple orchard are visited by an abundance of wildlife including echidnas, kookaburras, rainbow lorikeets, ducks and an occasional kangaroo at twilight. A highlight is the purpose-built glass atrium spa house overlooking the Wombat State Forest – ideal for a private rendezvous or an in-house massage. This is the perfect spot for a romantic weekend retreat and only a 15-minute walk into town. Although secluded and private, Daylesford’s many attractions are close at hand from the range of eateries, shops and galleries to various Day Spas with their rejuvenating treatments.

Guest Reviews

Our 2 night stay at The Orchard was wonderful. What a gorgeous place, and 2 minutes from Daylesford central. The house/cottage itself is just lovely, with lots of personal 'knick knacks' around, games, CD players and other various potential activities included. We enjoyed the old magazines from the 50's and 60's and wished there was more. It was pretty warm when we were there, so we didn't use the fireplace, but want to return in winter to give it a testing. The 4 posted bed (watch your head in the bedroom entrance) was very comfy. The home itself is very comfortable and inviting and the grounds are lovely; an old loved garden and small orchard which has since become 'less loved' and needing attention, but again, this added to the charm of the property. Although we didn't use the spa, next time we come, we will. A fantastic space and very romantic. We dined like kings at 'The Lakehouse' and 'Sault'. If you are unfamiliar with these restaurants and if you choose to try them, they are a little pricey but something special.

The Orchard was absolutely gorgeous. The lights and heating were left on to welcome us and we very much enjoyed soaking in the huge spa. The staff were wonderful and gave us lots of local tips of what to do and where to eat. We loved our walks around the two lakes and enjoyed a drink on the balcony at sunset at The Daylesford Hotel, a perfect dinner at The Perfect Drop and breakfast the next day at Cliffy's (try the amazing cheddar hash brown with poached eggs and smoked bacon). Wonderful trip to Daylesford. Thank you.

Perfect little cottage with peace and privacy. Had a great weekend here watching the sunsets behind the trees from the hammocks and spa bath. Would highly recommend for a romantic/relaxing getaway.

We had a lovely stay at the Orchard. It was a perfect place to get away for a few days. The spa was delightful and we enjoyed all the bird and animal life that visited the gardens. A family of kangaroos came every night to say hello. Daylesford is a lovely country town and we enjoyed exploring the botanic gardens and even went on a few walks in the near by parks. We especially liked the extensive board game cupboard at the house and played a different game every night. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we had a lovely, relaxing holiday.

Daylesford is really stunning, awesome things to do, great food, all the good holiday bits. But by far the best part of our trip was The Orchard. This place is instantly welcoming, full of treasures and beautifully presented. The Orchard itself is stunning and the spa atrium is a timewarp where you can (and we did) lose hours and hours. We cannot wait to come back.
