2 Nights at Jackalope Hotel Mornington Peninsula

Private vineyard, delicious food and wine and a sumptuous experience for lovers of food, wine, and design.

OVERVIEW

Jackalope invites you to stay for 2 stunning nights.

Situated on a private vineyard in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula wine region, Jackalope promises an experience to remember. With a monolithic, jet-black exterior, the hotel stands in sharp contrast to the verdant rolling vines, this juxtaposition a nod to the hotel’s namesake, a mythical creature – part-jackrabbit, part-antelope – that exists only in folklore.

Jackalope unifies art, design, dining and storytelling in the guest experience, creating a whimsical interplay between the ideal and the surreal. Shared spaces are lavished with inhabitable art – think a 10,000-globe chandelier that adorns the dining room ceiling – while the hotel’s 45 rooms are a restrained statement of whites and greys. Floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces offer sweeping views over the 30-metre infinity pool and vines, while the option of deep-soak baths add to a spa-like reverie in-room.

Two diverse restaurants surprise with contrasting takes on farm-to-fork food: hatted restaurant, Doot Doot Doot, delivers upscale dining and a tantalising tasting menu; while casual cellar door restaurant, Rare Hare, serves up a food and wine affair with a devil-may-care air. Food aside, a cocktail bar oozing curated-cool breathes new life into the property’s old Edwardian homestead, while a cellar door is open for daily wine tasting.

Just a one-hour drive from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is a perfect addition to a Melbourne visit, offering some of Australia’s best food and wine, golf, adventure, beach and leisure activities. 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, natural hot springs, and national parks contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie.

DINING

Just a one-hour drive from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula has long been known as Melbourne’s weekend playground. For international guests, the Peninsula is a perfect addition to a Melbourne visit, offering some of Australia’s best food and wine, golf, adventure, beach and leisure activities.

Doot Doot Doot

Executive Chef, Simon Tarlington, merges classic techniques with kitchen curiosity, creating playful dishes that pay homage to hero ingredients. In a nod to Jackalope’s design, Tarlington seamlessly combines contemporary with country – his trademark farm-to-table style underpins produce-worshipping dishes that find flavour in the unexpected.

Doot Doot Doot’s tasting menu is staged in several parts with a la carte options for entree, main and dessert, served with a supporting cast of playful snacks and sides. It is a creative culinary journey, where a respect for the feast is served with disrespect for the familiar.

 

A Rare Hare

A food and wine affair, with a devil-may-care air.

With room for 90 tails, Rare Hare boasts indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the vine-laced hills and across to Jackalope Hotel’s striking silhouette.

A hand-crafted wood-fired oven takes pride of place in the dining space, adding character to the mood and food. We cook with a good sense of curiosity and bring a tempting balance of heat, acidity, depth of flavour and texture to each plate.

 

Flaggerdoot, Cocktail Lounge

Since 1876, the majestic Edwardian McCormick House has stood gracefully at the end of Jackalope’s meandering driveway. Reborn as the hotel’s bar, Flaggerdoot, it stands as an enduring reminder of the history of this picturesque property.

Its current incarnation delights in the alchemic process of distillation; an experimental spirit stirs the daring cocktail menu, serving a mix of classics and in-house creations. The space itself is an infusion of forms; classic herringbone floors and open fires warm the room, while edgy installations and a one-off electric blue pool table, create a sense of curated-cool.
