We spent three nights with Sean and Rosemary with our two teenage kids. The meals were beautiful, local and tasty. The forest walk with Sean was a real highlight. We learnt heaps about the world heritage forest and the history of Tasmania. Rosemary and Sean are great hosts. Their lodge is extremely comfortable with a story to go with each... More

Sean and Rosemary are superb hosts, the location is exceptional, peaceful, regenerative. Sean's cooking is superb, I am still daydreaming about the apricot sorbet... Thank you both for a wonderful stay, we will be back!

Thank you Sean and Rosemary for the perfect place to relax on our honeymoon. This place is just so beautiful, peaceful and private. The food was sensational and my dietary requirements (gluten and dairy free) were dealt with effortlessly. At less than half the price and five times as nice, this place certainly beats Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, our other... More

Having read the reviews we concur with the views expressed. We stayed two nights in this beautiful location,& enjoyed the excellent meals prepared by Sean on each of these nights. The forest walk ,where the stunning rain forest was brought to life by Sean,with his incredible knowledge of the geology & the fauna was a revelation. We thoroughly recommend a... More

We spent 3 nights in this delightful isolated ecolodge and couldn't have been happier. Even though we got soaked through on Sean's walk, it didn't matter. A wonderfully peaceful haven away from the Perth heat, delightful and very interesting hosts, and five star meals just hit the spot! Just read the previous 3 reviews - they say it all. If... More

My husband and I spent 2 really special nights at the lodge in January. In this time we explored the area around Deloraine, the Western Tiers visiting the Liffey falls and went on a cave tour nearby. The location of the lodge was very private and looked out over a peaceful valley. The accommodation was most comfortable and the owners... More

Forest Walks Lodge is a special place, off the beaten track where you truly can escape into nature. The lodge is genuinely "eco-friendly" with spacious and comfortable rooms from which you can enjoy stunning ever-changing views of the mountain. Aside from that, Sean is an amazing cook, using produce from the garden, and both he and Rosemary are happy to... More

Our two nights at Forest Walks Lodge were just not enough! The location, nestled beneath the spectacular escarpment of the Great Western Tiers is a delight. The lodge's rooms are designed to take full advantage of the great setting with splendid views of the brooding mountain massif that dominates the southern aspect. Our hosts Sean and Rosemary made us welcome... More

I cannot rate this retreat highly enough. From the menu designed to feature the home grown organic garden produce paired with the best of Tasmania's iconic meats and seafood, to the intelligent lodge design & maintenance, this is what "Eco" tourism is meant to reflect. The location is stunning with plenty of activities and sights to satisfy the nature lover... More

Isolated charming place to stay. Nice views, wildlife. Walks right out of the house through fantastic forest. Spacious rooms, nice and comfortable common area, wonderful breakfast. The hosts are great: full of information, engaging, charming. An option is to have dinner in. Do it. Fixed three course. Excellent beautiful delicious. Worth every penny.
