Welcome to Eagles Rise, as my mother named it!
My home is high up on a hill in North Central TASMANIA, yet only a 10 mins drive to the main town, Ulverstone, & the many beaches that stretch along this beautiful Tasmanian coastline.
The cabin/unit is attached to the house with a hallway in between. Your own entry from the carport through the sliding doors & at the back, your own separate garden with a picnic table, cafe table & chairs and a Weber bbq.
Come over, relax and enjoy the peace & quiet!

The space
Welcome to Tasmania and the beautiful season of Christmas and Summer in Tasmania!

My home is based high up on a hill in Central North Tasmania, yet only 10 minutes drive to the main town, Ulverstone, and the beach!

The accommodation available is a studio room (the cabin!) with a kitchenette area and your own separate bathroom. A cozy weekend getaway, with, I'm told, the comfiest queen bed!

A choice of cotton sheets or flannelette are available. Flannelette is great for that extra 'coziness' when it's cold outside!

Warm as toast on the inside with a wall heater, electric blankets AND two hot water bottles - the last two of which you won't need but might just like to have the option to use :)

I have designated this accommodation for two people only, however, babies and pre-toddlers in their own porta-cots are also very welcome.

The Powerhouse @ Eagles Rise is now available on a separate listing.

There are some dvds available for your use, as well as some well loved board games.

A bath seat also available, should someone require it for an easier shower.

The cabin is attached to the main house with a separate hallway in between. The West facing sliding doors out to the carport which will be your private entryway. All windows in the cabin are double glazed. Very cozy!!

There is also a little private garden on the Eastern side of the house, where you can have your morning coffee, or dine under the stars. There is a Weber bbq and a fire pit there also available for your use.

When you don't feel like cooking, you can have the best Pizza delivered to your door by the Herb's Pizza in West Ulverstone. Book ahead! There is also Pedros for fish and chips - takeaway or the Pedros restaurant on the water, Jade Willow for a delicious Chinese meal, the Indian Corner for an awesome Indian meal or takeaway, as well as many others!

A picnic backpack is also available, should you wish to go somewhere for a picnic.

The property is on 35 acres in a rural area, with many tourist attractions nearby, such as Leven Canyon, Gunns Plains Caves, Wings Wildlife Park (Tasmania's largest wildlife/animal park) and Cradle Mountain is only 82 kilometres away.

It's a great spot to base yourself whilst traveling around this area of Tasmania, or even if you are just breezing through!

Being in a pocket of many creative cottage industries, there is a myriad of art galleries to explore, as well as antique stores and lots of little cafes to relax in and drink excellent coffee! Penguin beach is only 15 minutes away, where there is a large Sunday market to browse. The well renowned 'Wild' restaurant that was in Penguin, is now Mrs Jones and located at The Bluff in Devonport. Book ahead!

The nearest airport is Devonport Airport, 30 minutes drive from the house. Devonport harbour, where the Spirit of Tasmania comes in from Melbourne, is only 25 minutes. A flight from Melbourne to Devonport is around one hour. Launceston Airport is an hour and a half drive away and to Hobart from Eagles Rise, it is around a three and a half to four hours drive.

Looking forward to meeting you and here's a list of nearby things to see and do. A pdf with more information will be emailed to your once your booking is confirmed :)

Mobile internet access is available up here now! It is a wireless connection that can be affected in bad weather.

When I am here, I am as visible or invisible as my guests require :) I had one couple stay, newly weds, that I didn't see for four days! And I've had long and lovely chats with others, sitting watching the sunset during cocktail hour!

To be sensitive to the needs of my guests is important to me, and even when I am away, I am always accessible, as well as having someone looking after the place for me in my absence.

I love my neighbourhood because of the people in it and the marvellous views that surround me up here.Any neighbour that you might knock on the door asking for help, will be there for you.

The local Gawler General Store on Gawler Road is definitely one of those! Susan is a friend and is one of the most helpful and kind people I know. She is at 170 Gawler Road, on your way up here and open from 7am to 7pm. Petrol is available there too, along with the essentials, yummy snacks and coffee.

No public transport, except the school bus in the morning! You wanted to 'get away' didn't you?!

There are taxi cabs from Devonport airport that can bring you up here, but I would suggest a hire car if you don't have your own, so that you can visit all there is to see around here.

Come to relax, enjoy 'you' in the peaceful place that is Eagles Rise and delight in all that is around you :)

Love breathing the beautiful fresh air here in Tasmania and listening the the many different birds that visit during the seasons of the year. My favourites are the Swallows that visit every year, building their nests, teaching their young to fly! And the Eagles that cruise around on the winds, high up in the sky. That's awesome to see :)
If you like wallabies, possums and rabbits, there is plenty of them around after dusk! They seem to like my place and also the vegetation! I have to keep an eye on my vegetable patch! :)
I am the proud owner and protector of an Irish Wolfhound puppy (who will be four years old at the end of June 2019) and enjoying the time with this beautiful gentle giant!

During your stay

It's lovely to meet people that I come across up here at Eagles Rise and many a good conversation has been had. But I'm also sensitive to my guests needs to enjoy a peaceful stay whilst up here, so quietly disappearing once they have settled in can easily happen!!
