Built of stone, cedar and iron, Gumnut is fully self-contained with open plan living on the ground floor and a loft bedroom upstairs.  The Ned Kelly wood fire and split system has heating and cooling covered for your comfort.  The living area is open plan and includes a full kitchen, dining nook and cosy lounge area – everything is comfortable and stylish.

Take a few stairs to the loft and the queen bedroom is completely separate and carpeted with comfortable bed and furnishings.   The spacious deck has views of Kangaroo Creek and there is a BBQ area.  The bathroom is downstairs and has a walk-in shower, toilet and vanity.   Please note the owner’s residence is nearby, however, apart from their welcome when you arrive, you will enjoy total privacy during your stay.

Stayed at Gumnut Cottage

The setting was beautiful. Quiet and secluded yet only 5-10 mins from Daylesford. The facilities were all modern, and the fireplace was fantastic on the cold nights. Penni was a lovely host too.
