Nestled in soft, picturesque surrounding countryside and overlooking a serene lake in the heart of Trentham, Trentham Lake Villas allow you to relax and recalibrate within the wondrous joy of silence and solitude where the conflicts of the world seem beyond reach.
There are two separate and tastefully decorated villas - 'Tree Tops' is upstairs (see separate listing for the downstairs villa 'Lake View'). Both villas include a queen-size bed fitted with electric blanket, Minijumbuck underlay, premium quality doona, woollen blanket, quality linen and towels, bedside cabinets and lamps, wardrobe, ensuite bathroom with a capacious, nurturing free-standing bath, a kitchenette with sink, microwave and fridge, adjacent dining and sitting room space with television, books and magazines and a private outdoor balcony with stunning views of the lake. Each villa is heated and cooled with minimum effort reverse cycle wall-mounted airconditioners.
Continental breakfast, tea, coffee and homemade biscuits are included in the nightly tariff. At an additional cost, cooked breakfast, cheese platter or sumptuous evening meals can be delivered to your villa or a picnic hamper pre-prepared for that special outing.
Once you've unwound you may be drawn down the peaceful, tree-lined country lane, through the park and over a quaint footbridge to what at first seems like a sleepy village. As you step into the main street you'll soon realise that the faded old shop fronts house some astonishing and diverse businesses. There are top class dining and coffee places, artisan produce, a farmers' market, galleries, boutique nurseries, antiques and unusual wares. Trentham is an old town with great historic character, but enough going on to satisfy the most discriminating visitor.
Trentham lies at the heart of the Macedon Ranges, one of Victoria's most popular, vibrant and beautiful regional destinations and is only an hour's drive northwest from Melbourne airport. At 700 metres, it sits atop the Great Dividing Range, surrounded by the majestic trees of the Wombat State Forest. In winter it's often dusted by snow, while in summer it stays lush and green long after neighbouring regions dry out. It sits within the volcanic belt and the rich red soil combined with the highest rainfall in Victoria makes it a gardener's paradise.
Trentham isn't just about good food and boutique stores. It makes a great base for exploring neighbouring towns and attractions. Only short drives away are the hotspots of Daylesford, Kyneton and Woodend. Daylesford is home to the highest concentration of natural mineral springs in Australia and many visitors choose from an array of spa and wellbeing experiences to rejuvenate in these magical waters. Trentham is centrally located between the larger, historic regional centres of Ballarat and Bendigo. Smaller towns of Castlemaine, Maldon, Malmsbury and Glenlyon are well worth a visit.
