Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Expansive and stylish, The Pond House Trentham offers a unique luxury escape for people wanting the ultimate country experience. Located just 2km from the centre of town, you arrive somewhere truly memorable. Backing onto the Wombat State Forest, the property feels endless, with the house sitting on one and a half acres of beautifully landscaped Australian and European trees, the star of the show of course is the two acre lake that sits harmoniously in the environment.

The choice is yours for active or relaxing activities. Take the canoe out and explore the lake, grab the fishing rods provided and fish for your very own Red Fin, gather in the studio for a yoga and exercise session, eight mats, skipping ropes and towels are all provided to inspire you. End the session with a fun game of table tennis or movie. Or simply sit or stroll around the lake and enjoy the tranquility, catch glimpses of local wildlife, read a book and relax on the decking. That is of course if you can leave the comfort and luxury of the styled interiors. Four generous sized bedrooms with flexible bedding arrangements are beautifully decorated for maximum comfort and relaxation with luxurious fabrics, and beautiful art works, including a large David Bromley piece.

The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge has a relaxed contemporary feel with large windows that help to seamlessly blend outside with inside, perfect to open up in the summer time, or curl up by the fire in the colder months. Make the most of the Paul Bocuse Rotisserie range cooker featuring two ovens one ceramic to cook that freshly caught fish, or simply head into town to the award winning Annie Smithers Du Fermier for an outstanding meal. This is a very special property, just over an hour from Melbourne CBD and offers the perfect launching pad for those wanting to explore Trentham and the surrounding towns and hamlets of Daylesford, Kyneton, Glenlyon and more.

Bliss on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property for our group of 4 couples, all wanting king beds. This house provides just that! Very comfy beds, lovely bedding and furnishings and yummy hamper in kitchen to enjoy. Loved the views, the serenity of the pond, and the table tennis in studio. Fire place worked a treat to warm house up and peace and quiet was lovely.

The owner has done a lovely job of setting this property up to be very comfortable for winter weekends and groups . The Hamper they supply was a really nice touch . Beautiful home, management could do with a little training in regards to maintenance calls .

Excellent house with beatiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Pond House as a group of 3 couples. The booking was made through Dayget website. We booked for 3 nights and got an extra night for free, which was a bonus. We had a great time there by relaxing outside when weather was good or had a fun playing table tennis in the studio. Bedding was very comfortable and luxurious. Only one negative thing was no excess to Optus mobile phones even in Daylesford. There was land line at the property and ADSL internet which was OK. Overall, I would recommend this property to stay for big family or group of friends.
