“peaceful and pretty”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stayed one night here. The setting was beautiful, the bed was very comfortable. It was very warm, and we sat in the creek and cooled off, it was great! Better visited in cool weather, but a charming, cozy place for a couple.

In our experience, frustratingly, what you see on a website often does not reflect reality when it comes to accommodation. In this case, I am happy to say that our night at Emily's cottage far exceeded what we already saw from the very well presented accommodation website. A tranquil and peaceful gem in the countryside, tastefully decorated, clean and thoughtfully designed, and a bit of a bonus for birdwatchers (my husband got a "life" bird, the lovely endemic Dusky Robin). We would like to have had another night there, beside the crystal clear river, but had only 3 days this time round in Hobart and surrounds. An added bonus, the breakfast (included in the cost) was huge! No lunch needed for us that day... The best bacon I've tasted in some time, and (I think it was) Leatherwood honey for our toast, which is my favourite (rare as it is). What a wonderful way to enjoy our morning, with fresh coffee, full tum and a gently burbling river chock full of wildlife. Bliss! Well done to the owners, who have exceeded all expectations.

Room Tip: I assume both cottages are excellent, but Emily was perfect for our needs.

OMG what a beautiful cottage we spent the night in the Emily cottage which looks down on to a small brook. The wild life was pleantful from the bird life to fury creature.
We were left with a large selection of breackfast items bacon, eggs, oats, cereal and many more local product.
Localation was not to far from huonville many shops to grab everything you may need and then return to the cottages and never move out again.
Would strongly recommon

My husband and enjoyed a night in "Eliza" for our 25th wedding anniversary. What a pleasure, and a shame we couldn't stay for longer! The cottage was just lovely and set in a really beautiful part of Tasmania. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway.

After 8 wonderful days in a Winnebago we swapped to a car for the next 7 days of our trip round Tasmania. Spent our first night @ "Emily" - Crabtree River Cottages. Just gorgeous & so picturesque, could have moved in quite happily & permanently! If your in the Huon area we highly recommend you spend some time here.

A perfect four nights at Crabtree River Cottages! A place to relax and chill out in a beautifully appointed cottage. The river was beautiful and the surrounding area a wonderful place to explore, eg the Red Velvet Lounge in Cygnet close by. Also close to Hobart and the MONA (inspirational). The care taken with lovely food for breakfast and port to warm you by the open fire was really appreciated. Already looking forward to returning. Thank you!

The cottages are gorgeous (we've stayed in both), situated beside a runnning stream. There is a deck and bbq that can be enjoyed in the summer and a beautiful wood heater in the cottage set ready to light for your convenience during the winter. What could be better than laying back in the large spa with some bubbly. The cottages include cd's, dvd's, complementary port and chocolates and eggs, bacon, bread, cereal and juice for brekky. The bed is so comfortable with plump pillows and thick doona. This was our 3rd visit and we'll be back ! You wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Either cottage is fine.
