Words in Winter
Words in Winter

Retro revival is a thing.
The Chalet delivers it unapologetically with avocado green, burnt orange and vintage nostalgia everywhere.
Fancy amenities we leave to other hoteliers in the area. Instead, we concentrate on sharing with you a love of vintage for reminiscing pleasure.
Relax in Parker furniture, oogle West German pottery or get lost in a Tretchikoffs print. Did we mention that the Chalet is right in the heart of Australia’s Spa Capital? No? Well, we are. So after experiencing the pampering that Daylesford and Hepburn Springs has to offer, enjoy the warm retro vibe of tan leather sofas, houseplants and smoked glass coffee tables. PS. Just in case you don’t want to take our work for it, Lonely Planet awarded us Top Choice for accommodation in the area. So really, who can argue with that?
