Gumtree Spring

A truly unique property – fantastic for a family and friends get together or even a corporate event.

Gumtree Spring is an ecologically sound, country-style home built from mud brick and recycled timber. Located just 3 minutes from Daylesford nestled on 5 acres of bush and forest in a beautiful rural setting.

Being a large property, Gumtree Spring can accommodate up to 18 guests across 5 bedrooms making it the perfect option for larger groups or even corporate events. The configuration for the bedrooms is as follows: 1 queen bedroom, 3 identical bedrooms each with a double bed and a set of bunks (sleeping 4) and 1 room with 2 sets of bunks (sleeping 4) – all up 18 guests.

This recently built seven star energy rated mud brick retreat has a fantastic warm country feel and features recycled timbers throughout – floors, walls, ceilings, eaves, pillars and beams. Offering a huge fully equipped open plan kitchen with beautiful recycled ironbark bench tops, wood stove plus a conventional stove top/oven meal times will never be a hassle. Enjoy a meal in the formal dining area, or opt to head outside to eat in the outdoor BBQ area in a rustic, bush setting. There are 3 bathrooms (one including a stunning claw foot bath) and 2 separate toilets, so there will not be an issue of waiting to use the bathroom. 

Spend your days reconnecting with nature and exploring the treasures the popular Daylesford has to offer. Feel like staying home? No worries! You will never be bored at Gumtree Spring. Lounge the day away in front of a bluestone double-sided woodfire in the living room or head to the other end of the house to be entertained in the games room where you will find Table Tennis, Pool Table and Table Soccer. Hydronic heating ensures the house stays warm and toasty on those cold winter nights.

All linen and soap is provided as well as tea, coffee and sugar. Wood and kindling are provided for the woodfire. You just need to bring milk, food and beverages and your personal belongings.
