Prices quoted are per night, and subject to change without notice and may fluctuate during peak & off peak dates. 

Pet-friendly Daylesford Country Escape

2 Guests | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

The property allows visitors the freedom to disconnect from the chaos of our everyday lives and reconnect with nature and each other. The Love Shack is a semi-off-grid cabin set in the luscious bushland of Wheatsheaf halfway between Daylesford and Glenlyon. Take an adventure in nature, roast marshmallows by the campfire or bathe in the outdoor bath tub as you gaze at stars and soak it all in.

The Love Shack is a cozy wood cabin complete with mains power, split system heating/cooling, wood fire, kitchenette and outdoor bathtub. The cabin is configured as an open plan studio style room with separate bathroom with shower and toilet. The property runs on a off tank water, as well as bottle gas for the hot water so we ask that guests use all amenities sparingly to ensure supply doesn’t run out during your stay.

The Love Shack is nestled amongst the gumtrees, sharing it’s home with native flora and fauna including koalas, wombats, possums, wallabies, kangaroos and countless bird types. Due to the semi-off-grid nature of this property there are a few things to note before your stay:

This property is best suited to resourceful guests who are familiar with a glamping style set-up – lighting fires, swinging an axe and understanding rural courtesies.

The abundant wildlife are used to a peaceful life and because this is their home too we ask that pets are kept secure at all times or locked on the decking area for their safety too. 

Water supply is not endless so it is important that you are conscious of this throughout your stay and pack appropriately for your semi-off grid adventure!

Mobile/WIFI reception can be poor. You can get mobile signal at each end of Mary Rd.

Due to the rural setting amongst the dense bushland, it is imperative that fires are extinguished properly when leaving the fire unattended and that all rubbish be taken with you when departing.

Standard fire safety rules and restrictions apply and are enforceable by law.

Pets are welcome at The Love Shack. However, please be mindful you’re in the bush with an abundance of wildlife.

Pets must be kept off soft furnishings, furniture and never left unattended at the property. Please BYO poop bags and dispose of pet waste responsibly. Additional cleaning fees will apply.

We had SUCH an amazing stay here. Location was quiet & beautiful and the accommodation itself even better. So many small thoughtful touches we adored, it really is the perfect spot to getaway to and connect with nature and your loved one. And definitely the most pet-friendly accommodation we are yet to stay in. We will be back!

Great little spot only a short drive away from town. Escape technology. Enjoy a bath outside. Play scrabble by the fire drinking a glass of wine.

The Love Shack was an absolutely amazing place to spend the weekend, and wish we had stayed longer! It was a beautiful little stay as shown exactly in the photos, and the outdoor bath was 100% a huge plus. Would recommend a late night dip! So incredibly close to all the near by towns and had so many animals come and visit us! Thanks for an amazing weekend away! Couldn’t recommend it more 😃

Lovely cosy shack indeed! Pictures as shown with even more surprises when you see the mini pond and camp fire pit. Heaps of kangaroos visited each morning and evening. The place was fully heated for us by the time we arrived (super cold and rainy on both days of our trips). There was proper heating or you could go old school like us and use the fireplace. Total tech detox cause there was no reception on the property but as mentioned, a 2min drive down the road had some reception in case of emergency (I'm with optus). Would definitely come back!

What a great experience! It was the perfect getaway for my partner and I. It was very secluded but safe, very peaceful and relaxing, surrounded by nature and no internet. The place has a rustic charm with modern facilities. We appreciated all the little details carefully thought of by the owner that made our stay very memorable 🙂 The outdoor bath and firepit were some of the highlights. We also brought along our pup, the place is very dog friendly. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed at "The Love Shack" for two nights. The place is amazing. We were greeted by kangaroos on arrival. The shack itself is modern with nice touches. The location is amazing surrounded by bush. I spent the whole time taking in the sights, smells, sounds and the wildlife. I definitely recommend a couple of days here to get away from city life, and its close to Melbourne too.
