“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

What a stunning location and breathtaking scenery. Accommodation was excellent. We stayed in eagles nest 1 for 1 night while touring Tasmania but could have happily stayed for longer. Fantastic views total privacy and a warm welcome from the owner all contributed to a memorable experience which I would happily recommend.

The most beautiful, breathtaking place in Tasmania. My husband & I stayed in Eagles Nest Retreat 1 for 5 nights celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Waking up to the most amazing veiw of Mount Roland with the sunset is truly spectacular and very romantic. Very private location and the spa outside is definatley the ultimate to experience and enjoy. Totally recommand this to couples wanting to get away, relax, romantic atmosphere and just to take in the fantastic scenery. Will definetly be going back to this wonderful peice of paradise. Peace

What a location, what a retreat! We had the most amazing stay here for our honeymoon! Well worth it! Mount Roland is just spectacular, the rooms were so luxurious, we couldn't choose which one to stay in, let alone each of the spas. A spectacular place, an absolute must! Having a chef and massage therapist come to the house was so indulgent, but awesome!

Room Tip: We stayed in Nest II

We stayed 3 nights at Nest II (the larger house) - my mother and two adult sisters, to unwind and catch up on old times. It is truly one of the most beautiful houses I've ever stayed at. We arrived late afternoon and Mt Roland was shrouded in mist. But waking from my loft room the following morning, there it was - the MOST spectacular view! The pics on the Eaglesnest website are EXACTLY what it looks like. The house is so luxurious, and there are so many lovely touches (right down to marshmallows for toasting on the fire). Three nights was great, and 4 would have been ideal. Don't do less because you need that long to experience it all properly. Cradle Mt is only an hour away - and Bernie and that north coast is only 30 mins - so plenty to do. Des was a wonderful host - Ben came and cooked a fabulous meal one night and two massage therapists, Pauline and Chris came and gave fantastic 1 hour massages. It's all quite indulgent, but really worth the money. I would HIGHLY recommend EaglesNest, and from what I could see, Nest II is the best one, because of the lake in the front, which adds a beautiful extra dimension. Des provides a great range of breakfast supplies and I'd recommend cooking or the chef option the other nights because there is not much in Sheffield and you don't want to drive. There are two outdoor fireplaces which are perfect for pre dinner drinks. There's also a bbq. It's FABULOUS.

Room Tip: No signs from Sheffield - phone Des for directions

We spent 4 nights in Eagles Nest II, which was a perfect home base for day trips to Cradle Mountain (great hiking and exotic wildlife) and the North coast (check out the penguins in Burnie). This unique, modern home has stunning views of Mt. Roland and is quiet, comfortable, creatively decorated, and nicely equipped (e.g., high-end cooking supplies, washer/dryer). Great place to build a fire and stargaze. The nearest town is Sheffield, which has 2 grocery stores, a fruit/veggie stand, cafes, and a bottle shop (but not much in the way of restaurants).

Having already had a wonderful time at Nest 1 my husband and I decided that a quick 4 days in Nest 2 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Be prepared to have your privacy protected starting with no signs of direction from Sheffield to the Nests which eliminates most prying eyes. The Nest 2 is huge, 3 bedrooms each with their own theme, a kitchen to die for and of course that view. The Nest is set out so that no matter where you sleep you wake to see Mt. Roland and not like some accommodation places, you are actually encouraged to try all bedrooms and bathrooms. The Asian room was my favourite with a very unique shower and spa and bifold windows over the spa for that outside feel. Again there was everything you could want, including those lovely marshmallows for the hot choc.

For those that find critters of interest there are some amazing fluro blue Damselfly's, some that are red and blue, huge Dragonfly's, skinks, a family of native hens, a Heron, a possum and ducks. While this sounds like the place should be crawling it wasnt we only had 1 skink that thought the inside was better than the outside. Where the Nest is built next to a large pond the frogs are lovely, Banjo frogs (make a "bonk, bonk" sound) along with others provide a relaxing, almost surreal setting over a glass of wine as the light fades. While there is no internet if you have an iphone 4 you are able to use your laptop with 3G thingy (not a technical person but those who have this phone should know what I mean). The locals in Sheffield are very friendly and fresh local vegies are available for less than any city supermarket, a lovely place to unwind.
