Crabtree Cottage The Heritage Suite is at the rear of the main building with private terrace. Garry made us feel welcome in his quaint and quirky home. Creaky floorboards and we could hear the residents above in The Loft but they place is very old. Ten minutes drive from Huonville. Large comfy bed and large bathroom. One living room. The webpage says you can cook your own dinner. Not easy as the kitchenette is a corner of the room. One single element. Large electric pan which we never looked at. A microwave. One tatty pan with no lid and no seive to drain our pasta. Breakfast was adequate. We appreciated the port! We accidentally left a box of booze behind but Garry saved it for us to pick up three days later. Thank you. Thoroughly recommend The Block restaurant in town for a special meal and the information shop was very helpful.

I was visiting family in the area but required accommodation for 5 nights and chose Crabtree House, mainly because of proximity to my Sister's home. I was greeted on arrival by Garry, quite an affable chap who showed me around the "Loft" and helped me settle in. The Loft is really a quaint place.. quite large and with an air of times gone by... I loved the place and it was rather comfortable to stay in, though the bed / mattress was a touch too soft for my liking, but that is my personal preference for a hard mattress due to tendency to sciatica. Often small touches make a big difference and since I was visiting family, I spent the whole day away from the accommodation and it was a nice touch that the heater and a light was switched on each evening to greet me. On my next visit to the region I would look to book the place again..

We stayed for two nights in the Heritage Apartment. Great view from the verandah, however the accommodation was different to what I expected. The apartment is three closed off rooms in the house. The other apartment is upstairs and all floor boards are noisy, although there was no noise from the owners in the main part of the house.

Gary met us on arrival and was extremely welcoming and a pleasure to spend time with, also a widely published author! The cottage was warm and inviting, with full catering facilities and a range of awesome local bread, spreads, real tea and coffee, lovely balcony and views and despite being mid winter was not cold at all. We are locals in the Huon and wanted a more handy travel distance from Huon Mid Winter Fest. We even came back early to spend more time in the accommodation. Great bed, lovely heritage pieces all about the place, modern bathroom. Will recommend to interstate family and friends. We will stay again. Even though this is a Heritage property it is still modern in feel due to the amenities and facilities but it has that wonderful 'olde world' charm. It has it all. Throw in the friendly dogs, native critters and the bustling creek below and you feel like you are in another world. Thank you Gary and family.

My family of 8 recently stayed at Crabtree House over a long weekend and we absolutely loved our stay there. The 19th Century property has been beautifully renovated over the years, updated with modern amenities yet it hasn't lost it 1840's style and appeal. The gardens are lovely and the location in upper Huon Valley is perfect. Just a short drive from Hobart, the property is surrounded by beautiful landscapes yet very handy to the local country towns. Garry and Anna were able to accommodate all of our special requests which was very much appreciated. Totally recommend a stay here. Thankyou Garry and Anna.
