Our place is close to great views, the Huon River, the historic town of Franklin and at the gateway to the South-West wilderness. You’ll love our place because of the location, the privacy, the ambience, and the outdoors space.
Our place is good for couples, pairs of couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), groups of up to 5 people and furry friends (pets).
We are just 35 minutes from Hobart yet this beautiful rural location allows you to feel that you are a world away.
The apple-picker's cabin is, as the name suggests, formerly the accommodation for apple pickers who worked in the orchards.
It is now surrounded not by orchards but by open paddocks with uninterrupted views of the Huon River, the historic town of Franklin and the mountains including Sleeping Beauty and Mt. Wellington.
It is basic accommodation but with a very relaxed and comfortable feel.
The space has a large kitchen/dining/lounge with a bedroom attached. A second bedroom is located just down the outside balcony. This is separate so there is privacy if space is being used by 2 couples.
This second bedroom is also perfect for older children.
The bathroom/toilets are accessed externally.
A barbecue is available for use.
