About this listing
We love to share our bush home and our simple healthy lifestyle, and show people the good things Tasmania has to offer. We live in a stone and timber house on 55 acres of Wildlife Reserve, yet only 7 klm from Deloraine.
We are only 7 minutes up a country road from Deloraine, and central to the north of Tasmania with both Launceston and Devonport 45 minutes away. Deloraine is a beautiful town, and the gateway to the Great Lakes (30 mins) for good trout fishing and bushwalking. Cradle Mountain is a 1 hour 45 minutes country drive from here. The Walls of Jerusalem walk is 45 minutes away. We can provide a drop off - pick up service for overnight walks.
The guest room is warm and light, north facing with French doors to outside, next to a country kitchen. You are welcome to use the kitchen or barbecue to cook meals yourself. We have a three person Far Infrared sauna available for a small fee, towels for sauna and shower (or hot bath) are supplied.
We love a good conversation, we love people. (BlackMilk Sharkies are welcome) But we also respect people's need for privacy, and the need to relax and enjoy the quiet. We also offer alternative health therapies - detox Far Infrared saunas, healthy eating programs/weight loss, and Therapeutic Essential Oil massages. We offer one free 45 minute oils massage (Aromatouch Technique, $50 value) for bookings of 2 or more nights - very relaxing.
We are 'alternative' in our lifestyle, so we don't have a microwave or a dishwasher, and are fairly down to earth and natural. We do love our uncomplicated life here, and love to share what we have with our guests - and do enjoy hearing their stories and ideas on life in return.
This whole area has a great community spirit, with a large population of artists and craft people living locally. Deloraine is a lovely place to spend some time, but is not far to Cradle Mountain and the Marakoopa Caves or other day trips. There are lots of short day walks in the area and interesting places to visit.
This is also a chemical free household, suitable for those with allergies or chemical sensitivities etc; we drink and shower in Tasmanian rainwater (no fluoride or chlorine) and use no chemicals to clean, and our food is mainly organic local produce. We hope you will come and enjoy our simple 'down to Earth' lifestyle.
Our guest room is spacious and light, the kitchen is available to use for cooking meals and the dining room for eating meals or just relaxing. The lounge room is available to use, having a big TV and the wood fire is quite cosy. The bathroom is shared with us and any other guests. The grounds outside with seating and BBQ area are for general use.
Interaction with Guests
We are always around and can help with planning out your visits to local attractions. We are both qualified in doTERRA Aromatouch therapeutic Essential Oil massages. We offer one free 45 minute oils massage (Aromatouch Technique, $50 value) for bookings of 2 or more nights - very relaxing and healthy.
The local town of Deloraine is friendly and pretty, with river walks and ducks to feed. There is a good variety of shops and places to eat out.
I can provide transport to the Walls of Jerusalem or the Overland Track for overnight walks, and can pick you up at arranged times. This saves having to leave your car in a remote area for days.
Other Things to Note
We have guests sometimes camping in our Tree Tent, they are away from the house so should not be an inconvenience. They do share the bathroom. The 2 person Tree Tent is available to book with the room, so we can cater for 6 people as a group.
As we are not smokers ourselves we don't want to inconvenience smokers, so we prefer to be 'smoke free'.
