Private experience of Old Growth Forest

Posted 17-Feb-2015
Pros: Trails, spacious cabin
Cons: good as is
Location: Near a lot of other beautiful places to visit.
The hotel has taken the time to create beautiful well groomed trails in the forest. The cabin is spacious. You are close to the Huon Valley with all its attractions. And you are on your way to Southern Tasmania. Great package of features!

Worst accommodation i've ever experienced

Posted 15-Feb-2015
Pros: Actually nothing
Cons: These "deluxe Tipees" should be removed and cabin built.
Location: If you have a four wheel drive, the location offers great bush
Booked a "deluxe Tipee". The picture on the add showed an odd shaped cabin and said self rated 4 star. Turned out to be an actual Ti-pee on a wooden floor. (not what was in the picture i saw) Shared pit toilet, and water that might need to be boiled before drinking. Even though it is summer, i froze. it had a wood heater but because it is a canvas tent it leaked heat and never warmed up. It was dirty, thanks to the "self clean" policy where the previous guests clean it for you. The sofa bed looked like it came from an op shop. The access track is unsafe for front wheel drive cars and my hire car really struggled to get up there. I'd have been far more comfortable in my own tent somewhere else.

A relaxing stay in nature.

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Pros: Lovely atmosphere.
The experience was lovely, it was nice to have your own privacy and space in the bush to come and go as you please. Having a communal kitchen is a lovely way to meet with other travellers and swap stories. It was also nice to wake up to animals around in the bush and birds calling. Lovely walks about and just a great way to get way from the hustle and bustle of our home town Melbourne. We will defiantly come back again and are inspired to give the camping grounds a at some stage.

Perfect for a get away in the busy

Posted 07-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
This retreat is great for a true bush get away . We stayed in the tipi which is a indoor tent with an open fire , it was very cozy . The area is Owens by a great man with a lot of knowledge about the area and things to do and see , very helpful and with wonderful service . The facility has an outside kitchen and toilet with hot showers , outside hot bath . The area has plenty of wild animals like possums and wallabies and also a few great walks if you are into bush walks . I would highly recommend this place if you are into camping /bush life or want a bush experience .

nestled in Tasmanian bush

Posted 24-Apr-2014
Pros: no TV
Cons: nothing really
Location: a great supermarket and winery
a nice place to chill out, take a leisurely walk up a small mountain, sit in an outdoor bath and watch spiders the size of your palm sit confidently up on your window.

A lovely way to get back to nature.

Posted 26-Jan-2014
Pros: The secluded environment and friendly nature of the local, wild animals. It was great spending time away from television and unnecessary electronics.
Cons: I can't think of anything!
Location: Bush walks!
A lovely way to get back to nature. Not what I expected but was happy with what was available. A splendid way to spend some quality time with both my sisters. I suggest spending a few days/nights to make the most of the experience and your money. Would have been nice if the check in was at 10am and check out time at 2pm so we could have spent longer there but an excellent experience with nature and basic living.

Bushland Retreat

Posted 29-Nov-2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed in the tipee accommodation. Short walk to showers/bathroom/outdoor bath and close to outdoor kitchen. I enjoyed it. The fireplace was a bonus. You have the opprtunity to get close to nature and perform some medium level walks. Staaff were very friendly.

Retreat from city life and relax

Posted 08-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
This bush retreat if definitely for relaxing and enjoying the bush surrounds whilst still close to shops, wineries and other holiday attractions. Owners very friendly and had the fuel stove cranked up and cabin was toasty warm when we arrived around 5pm. Very eco-friendly. Although power is run on 12volt, you can go up to reception to charge your mobile and laptop. Be aware there is limited mobile reception but that is great if you don't want to be disturbed and enjoy the many bush walks in the area and local wildlife.
