About Rodney Robinson
Daylesford used to be our Melbourne escape and we wanted the weekends to get longer, eventually we gave away the city traffic for fresh air, lake views and no traffic lights. Our village is stylish, vibrant and welcoming - I love golf at Hepburn Springs and my wife Denise gets creative as floral stylist to Lake House.
Rodney Robinson purchased this Cottage in 2003

Great location and accommodation
Lovely cottage in a great location. Walks around the lake were accessed through the back gate and the property was pet friendly. An open fire and cosy interior completed the experience. Looking forward to going back again!
Thanks for being thoughtful guests Kirsty and pleased to hear you enjoyed the lake location.
Cosy warm and extremely comfortable
We had everything we needed to cook our meals, entertain ourselves inside and outside the house - a great place for a holiday. Having direct access to the Lake path is a great bonus, especially for dogs!
Thank you Barbara, you were a pleasure to host and we've pleased everyone enjoyed the location,. Best regards
My wife and I (and our little eight month old puppy) stayed for the queen’s Birthday long weekend. Very cosy accommodation, perfectly situated backing onto the lake. We are definitely coming back!

Pet friendly lake views
Cosy ,colourful and comfortable with joyful views .Unbeatable location with the lake at the bottom of the garden in one of the prettiest towns. We enjoyed every minute of autumn walks ,open fires ,restorative spa baths and so many lovely meals in rustic and heritage buildings. Our hosts were lovely too.

Lake Daylesford is one of our most loved landmarks, a haven for local bird life and a place for everyone of all ages to relax, enjoy a picnic, take a scenic walk on recently upgraded board walk and pathways, browse the shelves of our iconic Bookbarn or simply enjoy the views with refreshments from the Boat House. Explore our mineral water springs, the closest pumps situated in the Central Springs of Lake Daylesford or Wombat Flat on the other side of the lake. Historically Lake Daylesford yielded early wealth to miners who dredged over a tonne of gold from the valley which became our lake in the mid 1930s. Lake Daylesford Cottage dates from this early gold mining period, a miners cottage on the old road to Ballarat - now Leggatt Street, and the old two storey coach house opposite a former hotel, drapery and supplier of miners tools and equipment.
