Immaculately clean and well presented property in the middle of nowhere and that's where we ran into trouble. We had driven up to the Gordon Dam from Hobart and arrived at the accommodation at 7pm on a Saturday night. In our naivety we didn't realise that we would be too late for dinner, we were offered soup but we had... More

Thank you for your review. It is good to get your feed back about the need to communicate early if a meal is needed. It is helpful when we have a full house. I'm so sorry you didn't let us know upon your return from the Pub that no meal was available. We certainly would have organized a meal for... More

The BnB is nestled in a luscious valley surrounded by a bountiful garden with easy access. The host is charming and lovely. Nothing was a problem and she cooked the best omlete that I've ever eaten complete with herbs from her garden and eggs from her chickens. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. Our room had a separate kitchen and... More

Jen is a gem and a talented host and cook making good use of her produce. Hospitality, Service, and friendliness 5 stars. Came here to photograph the fabulous waterfalls and Moss forest 15 minutes drive into Mt. Field NP. Lots to explore nearby and if you are lucky you might see a platypus in her pond.

Lovely little place. Reasonable price. Ample cooking facilities and heating. A little tight with an extra person in a small room but we made do. Absolutely wonderful owner Jennifa. So helpful. Stunning surroundings. So close to Mt Field. Wifi very limited but hey we are traveling!

Thank you for your review and comments. Yes with a teenage daughter the Hamlet suite would have been roomier for your family. But I think it was booked out the night you stayed. Lovely to meet you. More

Our second visit to this location, the previous one being in September 2013, and again this tim around we were not disappointed. The service, the warmth and great hospitality are second to none.

Great property, walk path around the river, platypus under one bridge. The rooms were great, clean & comfortable decorated in period style. Basic cooking facilities supplied, or full cooked dinner offered at extra cost. Jenifa was an excellent, friendly host. l

We stayed two nights. Two adults, and our two adult children. Mid-winter. Genuine greetings, and a warm fire on arrival. Warm fire again on our return late on the second day. Our breakfast supplies were fine, and our in-house evening meal on the second night was excellent. Good value, friendly, and peaceful. Highly recommended. We are keen to stay again.
