This inn was the highlight of our one-month 13-hotel Australian trip. We chose this inn because it was halfway between Maria Island and Freycinet National Park, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The house is a beautifully restored mid-1800s building; the room was decorated with antiques. The breakfast was amazing, complete with freshly baked bread and strong coffee.... More

An absolutely delightful place, with wonderful hosts in Jodie and Cameron. The room is extremely comfortable and the fittings and provisions are all of a very high quality. The breakfast is huge and, again, has really good quality ingredients which set us up for the rest of the day! A delight and well worth a visit.

Amazing breakfast! Very hospitable hosts, and everything taken care of amply. It also felt nicer than a hotel, not dingy. I wish I'd spent another day here relaxing, just to stay in their living room and watch their dvds, read their magazines and drink their port.

We stayed here for 2 nights and what a delight it was, the room was perfect, wine and beer provided as the bars/restaurant's close at 8. Breakfast was perfect all homemade. The host were very helpful indeed.

We stayed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day with Jodie and Cameron in Schouten House. Jodie is very keen to share her knowledge about the environment including great walking tracks, beaches and the wildlife. Cameron made us beautiful breakfasts (stacks of pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, and wonderful omelettes and eggs) with great coffee and juices. Coming in after... More

Even though it was freaky hot weather we enjoyed our stay here. The thick walls did their job to keep us cool as possible. The breakfast was amazing...local produce and even bircher muslei! Eggs as you like them. Plunger coffee. This is a stylish place. Its a superior B and B.

We stayed here two nights travelling with our friends. We were so pleased we found Schouten House. Hosts Jodie and Cameron work as a fabulous team, providing their guests with a high level of care and consideration. The historic B&B is beautifully decorated, so quiet and so comfortable. The breakfasts are something else, generous servings with locally sourced produce (the... More

We stayed three nights at this wonderful heritage B&B which is owned by a young, vibrant, energetic couple (Jodie and Cameron) who work as a team to run one the best establishments we have stayed at. I lived in England (the birthplace of B&B) for 24 years, and Shouten is definitely up there with the best. The owners have left... More

A step back in time in a beachside setting. This b&b has maintained most of its heritage integrity including bright colours and floral decor. The owners add some lovely touches such as gorgeous old time background music along with a fire and complimentary sherry and port in the sitting room. The bedroom stayed toasty warm though our shower was just... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review and we really appreciate you choosing to stay with us. We’re so sorry you misunderstood your options for breakfast service. It’s true that our default time in winter is 8.30am (8.00am in spring, summer and most of autumn), but we are happy to offer an earlier breakfast to guests who have particular plans for... More

After a very long travel day from the US to Tasmania, we were pleased to arrive and find Cameron & Jodi to be friendly and very accommodating. Room was spacious and well appointed with an in-room small refrigerator. We originally booked the room with a view of the water. But we chose to stay in the lower level room because... More
