Jane also provided beautiful breakfast. Everything very comfortable with great view...Definitely be back again for longer stay.5/5 by , NSW
Great location to base ourselves and go exploring with the family. Enjoyed the stillness and the bush animals that came up from the river. Wonderful assistance during our stay and with our booking. The retreat was well fitted out and very clean. We all enjoyed the extras, thank you Jane5/5 by , VIC
It was a wonderful stay, coming from overseas we very surprised of the hospitality, Jane made us feel very welcome and helped us with information about the area. Very comfortable beds and great provisions for breakfast which we enjoyed over looking the river, loved the bush animals coming up from the river at night. The quietness was very welcome and yet so well positioned with a quick drive into Launceston. April 125/5 by , SELANGOR
It was an excellent place to stay at. Both the location of the house and the way Jane had decorated the house made our stay beautiful. Also Jane's hospitality by providing us with all groceries, fruits, refreshments was a sweet gesture. Would love to go there again.5/5 by , NSW
