Affording stunning views of the Wombat State Forest, Tasma House rests in the 1.5 acre landscaped gardens of the historic Tasma House and Gardens. The grounds - recognised as significant by Australia's Open Gardens Scheme "feature majestic trees, towering hedges, wisteria arbors, banks of lavender, espaliered fruit trees, and ornamental ponds." There's even an in-ground olympic sized trampoline

The famous Daylesford Mill Market is just a short walk away, and the bustling foodie heart of the town is only a brisk walk along the road. Beautiful Daylesford Lake is also within walking distance.

Great for extended family gatherings and reunions, groups, clubs, girls weekends, workshops, retreats, training sessions, gatherings, weddings, 30th 40th 50th 60th and beyond birthday celebrations


Despite its proximity to Daylesford attractions, however, Tasma House feels quiet and secluded. The main house provides accommodation featuring four double bedrooms , two separate lounges, both with large flat screen LCD TV's with DVD players, two bathrooms with bathshower over, a music room with a grand piano, and a large kitchen and dining area , suitable for running workshops or group activities .

Hydronic heating operates in the main house.

There is a commercial espresso machine in the kitchen and free wireless internet access, and laundry access.

Three separate garden bungalow rooms allow you to add sleeping for up to 8 more guests. There are six single beds and one double bed in the garden rooms, about 5 metres from the main house and surrounded by terraces, courtyards and the tea garden.

The "Potager" self contained cottage is part of this private "village" having it's own fully equiped kitchen, bathroom, LCDTVDVD,a double bed, and two single beds. Perfect for the host of a group, or for mum and dad, or that early riser, late sleeper, that needs their own spot but wants to be part of the group.

Special events


Many past guests have chosen to utilise  the Gardens for their Wedding Ceremony. The Wisteria Arbour acts as an informal "aisle" with plenty of shade trees, and garden "rooms" and vista's providing for great photographic opportunities.

Ceremonies involving acoustic musicians are permitted during daylight hours.

Ceremonies involving up to 30 offsite visitors [50 including those guests staying on the property] cost an extra $300. Higher guest numbers are by  by further negotiation.

Functions and receptions

Tasma House is in a residential area, with all the comforts of a big rambling country house. As a mark of respect to our friends and neighbours who live in the area, functions and receptions are not encouraged. 

There are a number of great country halls in the region, with local bus and taxi services to assist in getting people safely to and from these venues.

A catering service to provide canapes and drinks after the ceremony would be allowable under the  ceremony tarrif

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairytale location!! I have booked the Tasma house for our wedding in January and it was just perfect! The gardens surrounding the main house and the little cottages are absoluetly stunning, perfect to take amazing pictures. The size of the main house is perfect for a small group and very functional when it comes to preparing meals. Its a very comfortable space and each of our guests enjoyed the comfort of their room/cottages. The trampoline was a big favourite for the kids. We had a fantastic time at Tasma House and I strongly recommend this venue for your next familly holliday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb property set amidst stunning gardens I recently held my 50th birthday party at Tasma House and it was wonderful; the ideal venue. Superb rooms, comfy beds, and really wonderful common areas. We had everything we needed to host a large group, and particularly appreciated the restaurant quality expresso machine, excellent heating and electric blankets on all the beds (it was cold during our late April visit). Grounds so much prettier than in the photos and we loved all the special little nooks to sit in amongst the autumn foliage! Kids of all ages enjoyed the ping-pong table and the trampoline. We 're planning on becoming regulars :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great venue for a party This is a beautiful property however it comes with very strict noise restrictions - no noise after 11pm. This rule is 110% serious. If you break it your party will be shut down and your bond will be lost. It's a bit of a disconnect given the size of the property and the types of functions they cater for according to the description, but these are the terms, and there is absolutely no lenience. If you are planning a birthday, wedding, reunion or any event that will probably involve noise after 11pm, I would suggest saving yourself the drama (and $500) and choosing another venue. If you're planning a meditation retreat on the other hand, then this is the perfect place for you.
