Captains Rest is an award winning iconic stay known and loved fondly around the world, by best selling author, designer and teacher — Sarah Andrews, of The Hosting Masterclass. It boasts some of the best views possible by a stay, in a pristine World Heritage Forest.

The space
Captains Rest is a heritage gem of Tasmania. Our bed looks out the antique windows to the old jetty and the still water — as a deep bath with unlimited hot water. She's cozy with everything we need to luxuriate, and the Nectre wood stove keeps us warm year round.

We are all about soaking it up. Walk in the forest next to Captains Rest, swim in the water, fires on the beach and long nights reading in front of the fire. Watch the night stars reflect on the water, and listen on the bird songs upon awakening.

Lettes Bay Historical village itself is a hive of wild west coast activity in summer, and almost abandoned in winter. We love both equally.
