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. Executive Chef, Guy Stanaway cooks with a good sense of curiosity and brings a tempting balance of heat, acidity, depth of flavour and texture to each plate.
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.
Exclusive to in-house guests, Jackalope offers packed picnics featuring some of Rare Hare's most delicious grazing fare. Picnics can be enjoyed by the lake in our vineyard or taken off-property to enjoy at the beach or wherever your whim takes you.
Picnics are priced from $75 per person (off-property) or $100 per person (enjoy by the lake) and include marinated olives, potato focaccia bread, a salumi selection, Caprese salad, herb salad, cured trout, wood-roasted asparagus, roast lamb (on-property picnics), local cheeses, chocolate brownies, sparkling water and the option to add beer and wine.
