We have had a wonderful weekend at The Hide. Their attention to detail is well appreciated. The breakfasts were delightful and the decor is well done. The bed was comfortable meaning a well slept night was had by all. Thank you for hosts for the hospitality & we hope to be back.

We spent 4 nights at The Hide. A shortish drive out of Daylesford, The Hide is comfortable and very relaxing. The peace and quiet, broken only by the sounds of nature, are soul restoring. The hosts, Lisa and Sue, are welcoming and most helpful. Cooking facilities, while restricted to 2 gas burners, were quite adequate for our stay. Seating is...

What a destination! The serenity of the place was what had me the most excited. The Ned Kelly fire, the countryside overlook. My intention for the trip was to have some alone space to think, read a book, enjoy the countryside and relax. I got all of those things at the Hide, and so many more. Thank you Sue and...

My partner, 3 year old son and I spent 4 blissful days at the hide. A truly beautiful place with an abundance of wildlife. Lisa and Sue were wonderful welcoming hosts and allowed us to wander around their lovely farm. We will certainly be returning and would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful break whilst being a very short distance...

I wanted a quiet little solo getaway and The Hide was perfect! It was just what I needed. I was welcomed on my arrival and shown everything I needed to know for my stay.

We stayed at The Hide @ Mt Franklin for a spring long weekend getaway. We chose The Hide as it is dog friendly and is also set in a nice quiet setting. It’s a short drive to Daylesford, Hepburn Springs and many other local attractions although we just came for the peace and quiet. The house is cosy, comfortable and...

Myself, hubby and our beautiful 9 month old German Shepherd had such a fun time at The Hide! Our puppy was mesmerised with the sights and smells of the property & area.

Lovely house with a view from the dining/living area of green pastures, grazing cows and a mob of kangaroos. Our toddler had a great time checking out the ducks and chickens. Close to Daylesford but far enough away to kick back and forget about the hustle and bustle. The homebaked sourdough bread and freshly laid eggs for breakfast were the...
