Daylesford Longhouse is composed of living quarters, a garden kitchen and a working farm building – all within one, long shed structure. The house is not your usual weekender – it has been designed for living, working, storing and making. It is intentionally active and demands constant care and attention from owners Trace & Ronnen, be it milking a cow, making cheese or pruning a tree. It is a place that takes you back to the fundamentals of living.
The living quarters, located above the garden kitchen, include the fully-furnished bedrooms, a kitchen and dining space that accommodates up to 4 guests. Guests are free to enjoy the lounge area, the sauna, the six-foot clawfoot bathtub and the outdoor bathroom. Guests can treat themselves to a bird-eye’s view of the house from the viewing platform or stay indoors and watch Netflix on our fully-integrated smart TV. Wood-fire heating and electric blankets are available year-round. Luxuries include fine bed linen from IN BED store and Aesop body products. A Nespresso machine and Nespresso pods will be provided, along with Free WiFi.
