Update From Lake House

Friday 17 Sept

To our friends, colleagues, guests and members of our extended and local community,
All our operations at our Lake House site are currently closed.
We have been advised that an individual who was at Lake House on Saturday 11th September has tested positive for COVID in Melbourne on Tuesday night. The individual was fully vaccinated, is now isolating in Melbourne and is reporting as feeling fine.
We have erred on the side of caution, pre-empting possible requirements and arranged testing for the entire team who were onsite.
We are now working with DHHS in ensuring best practice in the circumstances. Potential exposure is limited to Saturday 11th September at 4 King Street Daylesford between 1.15pm and midnight.
Our operations here remain closed until further notice. Coming after a total of over 230 days in lockdown this is of course a heartbreaking blow in two years of constant heartbreaks. However, we are all needing to comply with the current understandings.
Wombat Hill House remains open this weekend ( 18/19/20 Sep) and Dairy Flat Farm will be at the Sunday 19 Sept Daylesford Community Farmers Market with baked good and produce.

As a long-standing business in our community, we understand the implications of the situation for the local economy and are committed to doing whatever is necessary on our part.
We understand that at the moment many people feel uneasy, vulnerable and even angry in what is an extremely difficult time for individuals, families, communities and businesses.
We hope that everyone can continue to practice patience, empathy and compassion for each other and avoid division.
We also hope that you will all continue to support small businesses in our town whose reliance on both locals and regional travelers is critical for their survival
We are encouraging visitors previously booked with us to transfer their reservations to some of our favorite local stays and eateries. Let’s make sure everyone survives beyond this pandemic and we keep our village as vibrant as we know it to be.

We’ll be back soon – Please watch this space.

Our Daylesford Farm

Dairy Flat Farm Daylesford is our own 38 acre regenerative growing facility 10 minutes down the road from Lake House.

The property includes five acres of dedicated vegetable gardens, a working barn for classes and workshops, 3 hoop houses, a glass house; an orchard of 300 trees; an olive grove and two and a half acre vineyard of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir plantings.

The on-site bake house is built in a semi-underground cellar with views to established hedgerow gardens. It specialises in slow-fermented sourdough and associated viennoiserie and hosts a regular calendar of masterclasses with collaborating baker Michael James. The bake house supplies Lake House guests with daily items. Retail sales are available from Wombat Hill House, in the beautiful Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens.

The Lodge at Dairy Flat is a special addition, an opportunity for travellers to immerse themselves in the beauty and energy of a productive farm.

Visit dairyflatfarmdaylesford.com.au for more information.
