Beautifully renovated home positioned within easy walking distance of all amenities. House was lit up and heating on when we arrived and Lynne the host explained where everything was including full breakfast provisions. A delightful stay 😊

The Duck House is a beautifully maintained older home with an abundance of character. The Host was lovely and very helpful and there we’re generous supplies for breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

This was the best place we stayed at in Tasmania. I loved the decor and it was large and roomy for all of us. The house was immaculate and homey and just felt so comfortable to stay in. The provisions and facilities were above and beyond. The owners were gracious and welcoming. I highly recommend a stopover here and would suggest longer than I had.
