An easy walk to Lake Daylesford and the botanic gardens, and just two blocks back from the boutiques, cafes and bars of the main street, for a spa country weekend where you can arrive and leave the car parked, Argus Views is an excellent choice.
Pulling up to a sweet country cottage bounded by a picket fence – complete with lacey awnings and red brick chimneys – you might get a sense of what’s in store. In an elevated position at the epicentre of Daylesford, as the name promises, you’ll certainly be enjoying breathtaking views. But the façade can hardly prepare you for what lies inside; this home is decked out with designer wares and quirky features that wouldn’t be out of place in a chic city apartment.
Brightly coloured quilts brandishing geometric prints sit comfortably alongside brick, glass and gold fittings. Move from a bathroom where stained glass and a clawfoot tub take the stage, to a living space where sleek leather couches covered in cushions invite curling up by the fire with wine. Contemporary artworks, exotic fabrics, and classic lines in Danish-style designs can be found throughout. Eclectic and inviting, this place has the type of interior panache that most people long for in their own homes.
While you could easily get swept up in the stunning ambience of your home away, you’re so close to the sights it would be a shame not to explore. Duck down to the main street for your morning coffee, where you can choose from an array of caffeinating options (or for a different kind of kick, why not try ‘Breakfast & Beer’?). Check out local art at the Convent Gallery, and finish up with a serving of scones piled with jam and cream. Cut a circuit around Lake Daylesford, and then reward yourself with a multi-course meal at the renowned ‘Lakehouse Restaurant’. And the best part? When you’ve indulged all you can, you won’t have to worry about a long trek home – you’ll have wandered back to relax in no time.
