Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Monday, June 25, 2018

Weekender by name, weekender by nature. Though its name suggests only two nights, most guests will leave The Weekender wishing they had a few extra nights here. Located in the quiet streets of Daylesford, near Cornish Hill, this quaint stay has a smoky blue weatherboard façade, white window trim and a laidback country style. It has even been featured on a magazine cover – an apt accolade as its owner happens to be an interior designer.

The Weekender definitely feels more like a home than a house and it is the small touches that make it so: a warm colour palette, an ample supply of bright scatter cushions, and a gallery’s worth of work from Australian designers.

Three bedrooms can be configured with one king or two king single beds, making The Weekender a flexible option for a girls’ spa weekend, a group of friends looking to explore the area, or a family simply wanting a stylish change of scenery. There is giant freestanding bathtub in the master ensuite and the other two bedrooms share a central bathroom.

A combined kitchen and dining room is a stroke of genius. With a mammoth timber dining table in the centre and kitchen benches to either side, this set up allows a group or family’s nominated cook to work their culinary magic while still being a part of the conversation, round of cards or board game tournament. Guests will be quick to use the table as their main gathering point, be it to decide how their day’s itinerary will pan out or to make dinner plans. If you’re heading out for dinner, Daylesford’s coterie of top restaurants is a short drive away, or those staying in for the night can take their supper outside in the gardens.
