Situated on a private vineyard in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula wine region, Australia’s most awarded hotel promises an experience to remember.
With a monolithic, jet-black exterior, Jackalope’s debut property stands in sharp contrast to the verdant rolling vines that frame it, this juxtaposition a nod to the hotel’s namesake, a mythical creature – part-jackrabbit, part-antelope – that exists only in folklore.
Unifying art, design, and dining in the guest experience, two hatted restaurants delight with contrasting takes on locally sourced produce: Doot Doot Doot, delivers upscale dining and a tantalising tasting menu under the arresting glow of a 10,000-globe chandelier; while cellar door restaurant, Rare Hare, serves up a food and wine affair with a devil-may-care air. Elsewhere, a cocktail bar oozing curated-cool breathes new life into the property’s old homestead, while a cellar door is open for daily wine tasting and meeting rooms.
44 rooms and suites are fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces; select categories sport sweeping views over the 30-metre infinity pool and vines.
Meeting rooms that overlook the vineyard include custom furniture, AV and delicious menu’s prepared by Jackalope’s executive chefs. On property activities such as yoga, picnics, vineyard walks and cooking classes ensure activities are in abundance. For those who wish to explore off property, over 50 cellar doors and restaurants dot the rolling hills around Jackalope’s own 11-hectare vineyard, while the Peninsula’s unique array of dramatic surf and sheltered bay beaches, contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie
