Only booked two hours before arrival but Leanne was all organised. Great set up and Don has a lovely garden. Home made jams and bread for breakfast after a relaxing spa and a great nights sleep. Some helpful advise for our dinner and our forward plans.

This was a great way to spend 2 nights in the Huon. Don and Leanne make you feel at home and the view of the river is fantastic at any time of the day. The location is pretty central to all things Huon. Great location and place to stay
