The hosts are Jodie and Cameron, a great couple in their 40s who have done a fine job of preserving this 1844 inn. They have kept the style and era in the five rooms without it being fussy. The breakfast choices are astonishing. The buffet style setup starts with homemade bread, cooked apples, baked granola, greek style yogurt, honey, fresh...

A very comfortable stay - we were very well looked after and the hosts' cooking was sublime. I think we sampled most things off their varied breakfast menu. If you're staying anywhere near Swansea...you simply have to stay here!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while touring the east coast of Tassie. The house is beautiful with an air of days gone by. Very comfortable bed with a nice guest lounge just outside. Cameron & Jodie were the best of hosts and the full breakfast was superb! And then there was Cameron's afternoon tea with home...

A 5 (?) room B&B with very nice period room, good lounge area with roaring open fire and capped off with a great fresh cooked home style breakfast with good choices. Outside areas garden etc could do with a spruce up but basically very relaxing atmosphere.

The hosts were friendly and the breakfast was also enjoyable with emphasis...

We have stayed in a number of B&B's in Tasmania over the years. Schouten House is right up there with the best. Our online booking was promptly replied and when we arrived, Cameron knew exactly who we were without introduction. The lounge and dining areas are well appointed and comfortable. Our suite was spacious clean and quiet and the antique...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Schouten House Bed and Breakfast is a heritage listed home, rich in history and a well known landmark on Tasmania's East Coast. Built in 1844 as an inn it is one of the first substantial buildings to appear in Swansea when the township was being established around a military base on Waterloo Point. Now a comfortable bed and breakfast offering traditional accomodations and a warm welcome, it is an excellent place to call home while you explore the coast and Freycinet Peninsula, or just as a relaxing getaway. Hearty cooked breakfasts, including options such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or our popular pancakes with (really real) maple syrup and bacon, are included for all guests. ... more   less
