This place is our saviour on the occasional family visits to Burnie. Each house is an individual delight with period decoration and furnishings. This trip we stayed in the Duck House and enjoyed cooking meals with fresh produce from the garden. Lyn and Titch are helpful and friendly and obviously love their houses. Don't stay anywhere else in Burnie.

We spent a night at the Duck House and house looks much better than the photos shown in the website. It's very nicely maintained. We received warm welcome from the host and we really appreciate the food she prepared for our breakfast the next day. We enjoyed our stay at the Duck House

Several friends and family members recently stayed at the trio of B & Bs [owned by the same people] - The Duck House, Mrs. Philpotts and Amelia's Cottage. Each residence was simply stunning with beautiful antiques, immaculate rooms and with every comfort you could wish for while on holiday. We were there for a family wedding and each of us... More

Location was within walking distance of town/the makers workshop with off street parking. Facilities were everything you could need, including fresh garden produce and yummy breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the bath relaxing, even with the ducks! A great place to stay in Burnie.
