Canary Cottage Daylesford

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

True to Daylesford's Charm, Canary Cottage is as cute as a button. This beautiful 90 year old homestead has been sympathetically renovated so our guests can enjoy a special Daylesford experience with today's modern home facilities provided.

With a mixture of old and new, Canary Cottage is a delightful place for that romantic week-end for two, or to host that great girls week-end away. Ideally located in a quiet location, walking distance to the beautiful Wombat Botanical Gardens, The Convent Gallery and a short stroll to many other popular Daylesford favorites. The main street is a pleasant 10 minute walk so no need to take the car out at night.

Walking through the cottage you will be delighted with the sun-drenched rear living room. With plenty of space to relax in front of the fireplace or curl up in the afternoon with a good book. Host a private dinner party which we can recommend a local chef to come and cook for you or have a fun-filled BBQ in the large garden setting at the rear. The modern kitchen is fully equipped for all of your needs.

Boosting two generous bedrooms with the main bedroom hosting it's own ensuite. The main bathroom has a large bath and a spacious walk-in shower.

We look forward to you staying at our property and enjoying the many wonderful culinary delights that Daylesford has to offer.

Too cold for winter stays

  • 2 of 5

The cottage is a cutey but the back loungeroom/kitchen is an ice box mid winter with no window coverings and as per the last review the timber for the wood heater is too damp to burn. The owner told me to buy as much timber as needed from the local servo and she'd reimburse me via bank deposit but hasn't honoured that and won't return my phone messages. She seemed nice so this is a big disappointment which has tainted our holiday.

Very cute home but not practical

  • 2 of 5

We stayed over the queens longweek and we were able to get an early check in and late check out which was wonderful but we did have a few issue with the place .....

The firer wood was all wet so we couldn’t use it we had to go buy more that we could use the couches are very uncomfortable and not practical and all also the bed room Pillows need to be replaced as they were very uncomfortable and I needed to use the couch cushions.

Also the walk in robe had no hangers and the lack of towels wasn’t fun as well and the mop bucket and no mop that I could use .

The bed in the first small room needs to be replaced as it’s very noise and uncomfortable .

The place is very cute but needs a lot done to it I could go on but I’m sure the owner knows they need to improve due to the amount they are asking for $$$.

I won’t be booking this place again which is a shame .....

Canary cottage

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed the house, except the wood was too big to fit in the fire box. So we had to go buy an axe.
