Stay in one of the oldest original miner's cottages in Daylesford, and experience country charm while enjoying a thoughtfully renovated home. Built in 1870, Marigold Cottage is a cosy home just a short walk to the town centre, with beautiful views over Wombat Hill.

This two bedroom one bathroom cottage is set in a wrap around cottage garden (deck with views, fire pit), renovated kitchen and bathroom, central heating, split system aircon, open log fire and claw foot bath.

The space
Marigold Cottage is one of the oldest original homes in Daylesford, built in 1870 as a typical ‘miners cottage’ during the Gold Rush period.

Our two bedroom one bathroom cosy cottage is just 7-8 minutes walk from the town centre and a 10-15 minute walk from Lake Daylesford. The cottage is located on a quiet lane with beautiful views over Wombat Hill, the Botanical Gardens and the Old Convent, and is set in a wrap around country garden with grapevines growing over the recently restored old pergola (with firepit), and kangaroos at the end of the lane.

Marigold has been renovated with love to retain and enhance all original features, including leaded glass windows, decorative ceilings, original working open fireplace and a large freestanding claw foot bath.

We have carefully integrated modern comforts including ducted heating throughout, split system air conditioning in the main living and dining area and both bedrooms, new bathroom with power shower, and new country style kitchen with dishwasher. The well equipped kitchen has all of your holiday relaxation necessities- a Nespresso machine, extra sharp knives if you want to cook, and plenty of cheeseboard making kit! Fast unlimited NBN wifi is available if you would like to stream Netflix or just surf for the best local attractions. There are board games in the dresser, and lots of wine glasses!

Marigold is suitable for up to four guests, and is perfect for one or two couples. We have two comfortable queen bedrooms both with queen beds, black out blinds, electric blankets, high quality bed linen, extra fluffy mattress toppers, and the most cloud-like duvets we could find. Extra blankets are provided for added cosy factor in winter. And in the warmer weather, sit on the large deck and enjoy dinner while taking in the view, or relax with a cup of coffee on the sunny front veranda in the morning. Please note that there are no laundry facilities at the property, but there is an excellent laundrette less than two minutes drive away if required.

We recommend that you enjoy the beautiful area by walking due to the central location of the cottage, but off street parking is available for two cars.

Guest access
The entire cottage is yours for the duration of your stay. (Self check in and check out)

Other things to note
Marigold is an old property and we have intentionally kept the original fittings and doors, so you may notice a few quirks like the odd back to front original light switch or squeaky floorboard, but we think this is all part of her charm!

Please note that for mid week stays, it is possible our gardener may pop in to mow the lawns. Please advise in advance if any concerns with this.

The fabulous fully renovated property next door is also a two bedroom holiday home (Lady Marmalade), so you could consider renting both if you need extra accommodation.

Location

Daylesford, Victoria, Australia

Marigold Cottage is set in a residential lane with very little through traffic. There is a paddock at the end of the street that you will often see kangaroos in at dawn and dusk! Turn out of the house and walk for under a minute to the right. The area has lots of bird life, and there are many cockatoos and parrots that you will see in the garden.

It is approx 7-8 minutes walk to the town centre (Coles end), and under 15 minutes walk to Lake Daylesford. You can also walk up to the Sunday market and Wombat Hill in around 10 minutes - depending on your uphill energy levels!

Hepburn Springs is approx 10 mins drive from Daylesford if you are visiting for a spa weekend.
