A romantic and modern cottage for a taste of the quiet life

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

Private, peaceful and picturesque: three words that immediately come to mind when describing the experience at Reverie 101. One of two villas on a rural property in Lyonville, this couples’ retreat is a pretty hideaway for pairs wanting to sign out of urban life for a few days.

Even the most ardent city slicker will have a tough time not revelling in the quiet still that Reverie 101 gives its guests. The serene nature of this stay has a lot to do with its location; it is flanked by verdant gardens on all sides and is set back from the road. The grounds have been beautifully landscapes and the property also neighbours Wombat State Forest, which is criss-crossed with a myriad of walking tracks for couples to explore. Lyonville itself is an idyllic hamlet sandwiched between Trentham and Daylesford.

This modern cottage’s moniker after all, means a dream-like state where one is lost in their thoughts and chances are it will take little time for you to enter relaxation mode upon arrival. Although designed for only two, Reverie 101 is generously proportioned. Rather than cramping all its facilities into one small space, the free-flowing floor plan puts ample room between the good kitchen, living space and king bedroom. There is even an entire ensuite dedicated to just the deep, soaking bathtub – which happens to look out across the garden. A separate wet room with shower, vanity and toilet is located at the other end of the cottage.

When the weather is mild and the sun is shining, guests can take their breakfasts, morning cups of teas, books or magazines out to the deck, settling into one of the sunloungers and making plans to not move for the rest of the day. In cooler temperatures, the same itinerary can be made; this time using a seat on the comfortable armchair, close to the glass-fronted fireplace, instead of outside.
