The Lake House is a beautiful venue and the food, of course, is divine. Vera and the events team at the Lake House are super organized, experienced, very responsive by email and made the entire process stress free. Special mention to Denise, the in house floral stylist, who did an amazing job with my bouquet, the pergola and the waterfront pavilion. Our in house two tier wedding cake of chocolate raspberry and chocolate matcha was delicious - thank you for accommodating our matcha request!

Vera and the lake house team were amazing from the initial consultation to the big day itself. Everything was perfect, the staff are fantastic, the food was phenomenal and the location its self is picturesque. We had our reception in the waterfront pavilion over looking the lake at sunset, we wouldn't change a thing.

I could write 3,000 words on all of the small things that, when pieced together, made our experience truly special. Vera needs to be cloned, as she is a true star, and worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the whole process a breeze. I couldn't recommend Lake House enough.

We had the most picturesque and beautiful wedding day on the Lake House foreshore in Daylesford, with a wonderful reception in their Waterfront Pavillion. The entire team from start to finish had everything in hand and not a single detail was out of place. The emphasis on making sure that we were relaxed and comfortable on the day, as well as the spectacular focus on bringing our individual aesthetic to life was beyond impressive. In particular, the level to which they customised our menu, beverage offering, ceremony and the styling both floral and otherwise of the space to suit our tastes was absolutely incredible. I will never be able to thank the team enough for the effort and quality of our experience working with them as a couple. Thank you to Ella and the team.

Lakehouse in Daylesford were great to deal with. We had to reschedule twice due to COVID, and they were very supportive and did not charge any extra fees. The looked after all floral arrangements, decorations and food. Bridal Suite was included in our package and it was a DREAM to stay there. All our guests kept saying how well run the day went. The staff were organised, drinks well tended to, and our guests with dietary requirements even commented how well they were looked after. Highly recommend!

Great location and I could not fault the service. We found it pricey but we now know why. The styling was beautiful, the food was good and everything ran smoothly and without a worry. Would definitely recommend it.

We were a bit hesitant with organising styling when we didn't have an exact picture of what we wanted but Deb from the styling team made the place beautiful. We were so happy with the flowers. It was what we wanted and we tried to take home all the flowers because they were amazing!

A Beautiful venue with perfect service and amazing food. Very reasonably priced for a venue that took care of every detail for us. We were left free to enjoy ourselves and didn't have to worry about a thing. The Waterfront Pavilion was was a perfect choice for our wedding lunch!

Wonderful venue where they cater to all your needs. Did not have to lift a finger with the wedding organizer on site who took care of everything. The only complaint would be that they spelled my husbands name wrong on the menus.

The Lake House in Daylesford was the perfect venue for our wedding. We chose it initially for the brilliant food, but the venue and grounds were just beautiful and the staff was amazing on the day; they made us feel so at ease and everything ran so smoothly. We would recommend this venue to anyone!
