The Rustic Cottage From $150
Carlton, TAS per night

Discover the natural beauty of South East Tasmania from the comfort of this light-filled home located at the end of a tranquil country road, just a 40 minutes drive from Hobart. Stunning views span the surrounding hills as well as the coastal scenery of Storm Bay and the Tasman Peninsula.

Inside, open plan living is ideal for both relaxing and socialising. Head out to nearby attractions by day, then come home and cook up a meal to enjoy with a wine by the fire on crisp, cool evenings.

Whether you want a base to explore this incredible region or a peaceful escape to be immersed in nature, this single-level, four-bedroom property is the perfect home away from home.

Situated in the countryside with views of both the rolling hills and the coast, light, minimal furnishings and comfortable, airy living space create a calming backdrop for your rural retreat.

The open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area is both welcoming and family-friendly. The kitchen has all you need to prepare meals at home, including a fridge, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, and other cooking essentials like pots, pans, and utensils. Eat around the kitchen island or at the timber dining table, then kick back in the living room on one of the comfy lounges or armchairs to watch TV or read from a selection of books available.

Four cosy bedrooms accommodate eight guests. The master offers a king bed, the second bedroom has two single beds, a third bedroom features a bunk bed with a double and a single bed, and the fourth bedroom, furnished as a rumpus room, has a single bed.

The modern, spacious bathroom features a shower and a bathtub, as well as all the basics including soap, shampoo and conditioner, and hairdryer.

Work from home at the desk in the living area or catch up on your laundry and make use of the in-unit facilities including a washing machine and dryer. Outside a parking area accommodates four cars.

During your stay, you and your group will have the entire home to yourself. The patio area is shared with the owners who live nearby. Guests are also welcome to use the trampoline (at their own risk) and basketball ring. Please make yourself at home!

Please read and respect the house rules. This is very much appreciated, thank you!

Before your arrival, we will also share a house guide that contains instructions on how to access the property, use certain appliances, and anything else you may need to know.

Please note the only source of heating is a wood heater. We will provide full instructions in the guest guide and materials needed to light it.

The cafes, galleries, restaurants, and sights of Hobart are just a 35-minute drive away. Take a ferry to MONA, which features a winery onsite, or stroll around Salamanca Market, held on Saturdays, to stock up on gourmet products and local arts and crafts.

25 minutes drive northeast will bring you to the historic village of Richmond, featuring more than 50 Georgian buildings and the oldest gaol in Australia. Well worth the trip for anyone interested in early Australian history, or as a relaxing day out.

The World Heritage-listed Port Arthur site is a 45-minute drive south of Carlton. If you’re feeling adventurous, a little further down the road you’ll find Three Capes Track, a multi-day walking track that takes in spectacular views of Cape Pillar, Cape Hauy, and Cape Raoul.
