Absolutely gorgeous ! ! !

We very much loved our stay here. Exceptional hosts. Made us feel very welcomed. The Diary is perfect for a weekend get away. Amazing comfy bed. Gorgeous bathroom with a beautiful relaxing bath. Big kitchen and dining table. A cupboard full of board games which were put to good use. A lovely little garden if you wish to sit in the sunshine. Close proximity to the cute little shops, walking distance to cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Would HIGHLY recommend. Thanks again for having us!

Really well thought out layout and design for travellers. Great home comforts and huge bed with great pillows. You might be lucky to get some free range eggs from the chooks and the herb garden is there to use to flavour them up. Great bath. Nice water pressure in the shower and the bathroom cabinet spins around to reveal a full length mirror. Great to sit in many of the outside areas and chill out with a book and you can walk to town. Only two streets away. Coffee pod machine with pods is a nice addition.

Gayle's Weekend Away

A lovely relaxing place to stay. comfortable bed, great bath tub and nice wood fire to relax in front of. Quiet and close to town. A cosy place with character which is a nice change from your typical modern type room. I would definitely recommend for a country getaway.

Love the claw foot bathtub!

The Dairy is such a warm and welcoming little corner of the world. So much larger that you expect. The styling is beautifully themed and Donna and Rod have provided quality fittings and amenities for a wonderful stay. Right in the heart of town and yet ever so quiet. Do yourself a favour and take a step back in time and book The Dairy. BTW the bath is awesome !!!!

Very pleasant stay. Very well appointed and comfortable. Excellent location. Great wood heater which was much appreciated as it was -2 one night.

Great bed

Great bed! Donna's place was perfectly located for our stay in Castlemaine. The location was quiet and we enjoyed the wood heater with plenty of wood just outside the door. Just needed a packet of Castlemaine ground coffee for the plunger! We would stay again happily. Thank you for having us.

The dairy is an absolute must if you are staying in Castlemaine. Made up of 3 large rooms (kitchen/lounge, bathroom, bedroom) there is a lot of space to live comfortable. A large king size bed in the bedroom and a nice big bath to sit back and relax in are perfect. The woodfire heater provides ample heat for the whole building. The kitchen has plenty of utilities to make long term stays more than possible. The dairy is located approximately 5 minute walk from the IGA supermarket which passes plenty of shops and cafes on the way. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when going to Castlemaine, a great little nugget in an historical town.

Hi Daniel, Thank you so much for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Dairy and we look forward to welcoming you to Castlemaine again. Warm regards, Donna

The Dairy was absolutely charming for a weekend getaway in Castlemaine. The cottage is beautifully appointed, with the fireplace and bath highlights for winter. The Dairy is walking distance to the train station and all the main spots in town, and the door keypad makes self check-in super easy. Communication was easy and prompt pre and post stay. I would definitely recommend The Dairy for a relaxing and luxurious stay!

Jill's weekend away in Castlemaine

The renovated dairy was so lovely, perfect for the relaxing weekend away that we wanted. The fire was already lit when we arrived on a cold afternoon, so all we had do was settle in and open the wine. The bedroom and bathroom are super stylish and the bed is very comfortable. Location is great, everything within easy walking distance. Our host gave us some great local tips and we enjoyed meeting Spike the dog. Highly recommended.
