Girlfriend and I stayed in the streamside cabin for two nights - it was ridiculously rad.
We searched every hotel/motel/camping option "near" Hobart via wotif and stumbled across Huon Bush Retreats. The outdoor bathtub was the drawcard and it did not disappoint. We read all the reviews on tripadvisor in regards to what cabin would be best suited for us. There were a few comments about the stream side being the most secluded and it definitely was. Reality felt a long long way away at this cabin.
The carbon neutral aspect of the cabin is awesome and made the bush experience much more authentic - the drop toilet was no different to a normal toilet (no smells, no hassles), our phones were off/flat the entire time we were at the cabin, we bought a few cd's for the cd player and had drinks on the deck/in front of the fire place. Unreal experience being off the grid that we will definitely do again this year - but for much longer!
The service was magic. We had a huge delicious platter delivered by the staff on the second night, the fire was rocking by the time we checked in at 830/900 pm the first night, the cabin was clean and had epic attention to detail. The bed was super comfy too!
The walks out the back of the retreats are a must as well.
I'll be recommending it to everyone I know, and we will definitely be back this year - hopefully for the winter experience!
