The hosts were very friendly and warm while their breakfasts were absolutely delicious. The garden was also very inviting and well presented. We also found the residence was conveniently located.

It was like a home away from home. Comfortable and roomy. The property is like a botanical garden. My wife and I wished we could have spent more time to explore the property. The hosts Leanne and Don couldn’t have done anymore to welcome guests. Also the breakfast is something you need to try for yourself, even down to the home baked breads 👍

Country Cottage Getaway

Pros: Overlooking the Huon River and watching the Sun rise over the glistening water.
Don and Leanne are very hospitable and welcoming hosts. They were very friendly and informative and made us feel very comfortable. The accommodation is set amongst beautiful cottage gardens with ample blooms and overlooking the Huon River. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit, which had a very comfy cottage feel and was presented impeccably. (The photos don't do it justice). The property is very centrally located in the Huon Valley, just a short drive to amenities in HuonVille.
