Secret Forest House is a peaceful and sustainably designed home, set in an acre of garden, fruit trees and eucalyptus on the forests edge a few minutes from town.
Your room at Secret Forest House is quiet and comfortable and has access to a sunny deck. The views and ambience are very pleasant. There is TV/DVD and Wi Fi, and also heater and fan available.
The bathroom is right beside you. The house has lots of natural light and the property is a haven for birdlife.
I cook most evenings and use vegetables from the garden in season.
I’m happy to cook for guests as well, for a modest fee. Toast and tea/coffee for breakfast is complimentary.
As a long time resident of Daylesford and former local teacher of some 24 years, I have a fair bit of knowledge about events and places from a local perspective. I’m very happy to provide ideas and suggestions for your itinerary. I can lend a pair of mountain bikes if you'd like to go for a ride.
A stay at Secret Forest House would match perfectly with secluded and scenic GPS guided walks in the nearby Wombat forest, via my outdoor recreation business, Secret Forest Walks. There's more information at my website by the same name. You're welcome to look up my reviews on TripAdvisor for a further outlook on myself and Secret Forest Walks. Combining a GPS guided walk, bike ride or Geocache/Treasure Hunt with a stay would make for a memorable visit, and there is a discount for guests.
I'm friendly and enjoy hospitality. Secret Forest House is a rare and alternative way to visit and enjoy this colourful town.
You're welcome to all of the facilities in the house, though the kitchen should be cleaned up by 9.00pm if you're cooking.
I'll be around most evenings. I look forward to assisting guests with information on things to do, where to eat and other highlights.
I occasionally mind a small, gorgeous dog.
I'm what you would call a 'non gourmet' cook, but I'm happy to make enough for you to join me for a meal, with sufficient notice. I include seasonal vegetables from my garden and organic produce with my cooking as much as possible. There would be a modest additional charge, depending on the ingredients.
Smoking is permitted but not in the house.
The shower is over the bath, so you'd need to be able to manage that.
No overnight guests.
Quiet time after 10pm.
Hi. Thanks for viewing Secret Forest House.
I'm a former secondary teacher with diverse interests, including a passion for the environment. This has led me to develop a unique outdoor recreation business, Secret Forest Walks. If walking in seclusion along the Wombat Forests loveliest tracks and places using a specially programmed, hand held GPS as your guide sounds interesting, I know I can assist you.
I love living in Daylesford. It has so much natural and architectural charm and it has a real and vibrant community. I'd love to share my knowledge of the local area and its offerings with you if you were interested in exploring.
