Recently renovated to include new bathrooms, kitchen and luxurious bedding, this classical open-plan villa on the lake edge, with expansive terraces and views, and a double spa, epitomizes the essence of Daylesford. Evenings can be spent on the terrace preparing a BBQ meal and watching over the changing colours and reflections of the lake as the sun sets. Furnishings are an elegant blend of modern, antiques and French Provincial style. The second lounge where the sofa bed is located is perfect for families or girls weekends that need to sleep six without the privacy of their own room or bathroom. The upstairs bedroom features a king sized bed or two king singles. On the lower floor there is a large open plan lounge and dining area, including big soft brown leather sofas set around a glass front wood fire. Sliding doors lead out onto the terrace while large windows let in plenty of light and frame the stunning views. Ducks Bay is a beautifully decorated home with every comfort in mind, ideally located on the lakes edge and adjacent to The Lake House restaurant and a short walk to Daylesford's shops and cafes.

Guests staying in 2016: We loved our stay at Ducks Bay! We especially loved all the extras left for our comfort eg many towels to use if we needed them, lots of toilet rolls, ample firewood and beautiful toiletry and bathroom products. Also the kitchen was well equipped -we appreciated the bread,milk, jams and other food items. The heating was fantastic. Overall we had a beautiful week there. Thank you!
