My partner and I were blown away with just how beautiful the setting is in the Huon Valley. I met Michael when we were checking in and it was like being welcomed in to his very own home. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a secluded get away, having a bath outside and under moonlight is a great... More

Perfect place to relax and unwind from day to day pressures. The cabin was nestled in amongst a totally private bush setting with all the basic comforts of home, lovely wood heater, comfy bed and 2 x lounges to sprawl out on whilst taking in the rain forest view. Same view from the shower..... The bath on the deck was... More

Hi Basil, Yes, winter is a great time to relax in front of the wood fired heater. I reckon the waterfall would have been flowing nicely after the recent rains. We look forward to seeing you again next year, Thanks for your visit and review, Paul D More

My partner and I stayed in the streamside cabin over the long weekend. It was beautiful and quiet. Being able to disconnect and reset was exactly what we were after. We took the walk up to mount misery which was worth the journey.

This is an amazing place to stay! The drive up the hill takes you further and further into the bush and then you arrive at the retreat. The cabins and tipees are also hidden in the bush - you have no neighbours! Our tipee was fantastically designed and built and the owners had the woodfire prepared for our arrival. There... More

Hi C_Taliax, Thanks for your visit and the great review. So glad that you engaged with our walks, wildlife and low tec environment. When you come back with your family, maybe try two tipees again or upsize to our Wallaby Grassland family cabin. You mention our wood fired heating - Did you know that we grow more wood each year...

We enjoyed one night in Tipee West at HuonBush Retreats and can honestly say we didn't want to leave at all! A perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of today's 24/7 online world. Looking up at the stars whilst listening to the rain was a highlight. The already lit wood fire waiting for us was an added bonus. Thank... More
