Stayed at Quoll Cottage for 2 nights and was just the most amazing experience! Gorgeous wee cabin in an enchanted moss covered wood. Arrived home after doing a 6km walk around Dove Lake on a rainy cold day, to find our fire lit for us...pademelons gambolling around the front of the cottage! Magical!

We stayed for a week in Tallowood. Cannot recommend this place more highly. Very comfortable, spacious and welcoming accommodation set apart from the other cabins. The photo on the site is Tallowood and we were so lucky to see it just like this, covered in snow. The staff are tremendous and friendly. We came home after a long drive to...

These logs cabins are cosy with log fires & comfortable sofas. The kitchens are well appointed and nicely furnished. Beds were soft with lovely new linen and the overall deco is perfect for that tucked away in the forest feeling. New managers Lisa & Brad we're very welcoming and could not have been more helpful, they even had our fire...

I led a group tour of 6 families, 30 people including 16 kids under 10years old (I'm nuts I hear you say!), right around Tasmania. The accommodation was second to none, THE best on the whole trip. It was very clean, quiet, and the cottages had everything we needed. What else can you ask for? Wood fire places in a...

Our second time at Cradle Mountain but first time at these cabins. We had the Ringtail cabin which was great with a great kitchenette, warm and comfortable double bed and lovely big gas heater which warmed up the cabin very quickly and stayed warm once the heater was turned off at night. The cabins are about 5 minutes drive from...

We stayed in the Ringtail cabin. It was our favourite accomodation on our holiday. Clean with kitchen facilities, gas log fire and very comfortable bed.We pre-booked a breakfast package which was very generous and arranged to have a bottle of Tasmania bubbly waiting for us too. Close to shuttle bus to visit Dove Lake and Cradle Mountain and not far...

Staying at the cottage in the midst of the forest was a wonderful experience. The cottages have a good distance between each other allowing for a undisturbed stay yet you always were in the company of the wildlife around. The cottages were equipped with a kitchenette and required amenities and also the wood heaters were kept one cosy indoors. Location...

We loved our stay at the Buttongrass Cottage. It snowed overnight (in February!) but we were warm and cosy in our cottage. It had a small, clean, well provisioned kitchen and the shower was the best we had anywhere in Tasmania. We enjoyed the open fire, The lady at reception was warm, friendly and helpful. You couldn't get much closer...

I took my family (6 kids and wife) on a tour of Tassie last year. Cradle Mountain was a must see experience. I contacted the cottages by email and booked a cabin based on good reviews. I was definitely not disappointed. Cottages are spacious and are perfect compliment to being in the wilderness but with comfort. The restaurant was the...
