The surrounds of this house are breathtaking. We stayed in the chalet which felt really homely. Despite being only a 60 second walk to the main house it was fully stocked with all you need for self sufficiency. It was out of this world to wake up and sit on the veranda looking into the lake for breakfast or book reading with ducks and swans frolicking.
Food top notch and matched wines on degustation menu worked a treat.
Just a few negatives, our afternoon tea came with no tea (just a teabag in our chalet) which for me took away a little from it. Few new staff being shown the ropes the weekend we stayed which lead to a few small mistakes (nothing huge but when you're paying top dollar you don't expect it ).
In short this is a high end, perfect weekend of unwinding in the heart of the mornington peninsula that I would strongly recommend to a friend as long as their wallet stretches to it..
