Cute reno'd miner's cottage, 2Q splits + 2 en-suites, wood fire, large TV, WIFI, lakeside

Cara is a gorgeous, petite old miner’s cottage, recently renovated “à la shabby chic”, and offering up to 4 guests the chance to stay in one of Daylesford’s oldest little properties.  This delightful cottage can be seen in photographs of Lake Daylesford taken in the 1800’s and is very much part of Daylesford’s heritage.  With the recent makeover Cara now offers some modern day appliances and comforts whilst still maintaining links back to her roots.  Newspapers found under the house adorn the walls and the old posts for tying up horses are still there in front of the cottage.

Cara has 2 queen bedrooms; both with split beds so you can have singles or queen beds, and both bedrooms have a small en-suite (shower, vanity and toilet).  This bedroom and bathroom configuration is ideal for either 2 couples, 4 friends or a small family.  (There is a step down to each en-suite but handrails will assist).

The dining/living flows to the full kitchen, with picture windows and French doors onto the deck, where you can enjoy lovely views of the lake and trees.  The lake is actually at the bottom of the garden, beckoning you to take a morning stroll around her shores  – it takes about 30 minutes and is a very pleasant and popular activity with locals and visitors
