“An Exceptionally Nice Place”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

I tried to put up a review on Maydena Country Cabins a few weeks ago but it seems to have gone into the ether. So, as we really enjoyed our stay there, I thought I would send in another review.

The cabin we stayed in is a small 2 bedroom self contained cabin on a beautiful alpaca farm with glorious views over the valley towards Mount Field National Park. There is a second cabin on the property. Our cabin was very nicely fitted out although there is little storage space for luggage because the rooms are small (but quite adequate).

Anthea, Derek and the Alpacas are very welcoming and know the area very well. They are informative and caring hosts. The bread and butter pudding on arrival was scrumptious!

There is so much beautiful country to see in the area, and it's only 1 1/4 hrs from Hobart! Nearby, there is the whole of Mount Field National Park with the iconic Russell Falls at the base and great bush walking including the famous Tarn Shelf at the top. Maydena is an ideal place to stay to see Lake Pedder. But the most startling and impressive sights are the giant 400 year old trees and old growth forest of the Styx and Florentine valleys which are within 20 km of Maydena. Many of the trees are between 80m and 90m high and they are the largest living flowering plants. Download the Wilderness society guide for the Styx at http://www.wilderness.org.au/campaigns/forests/styx_walking_guide which will tell you exactly where to go and what to see.

I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

A very small property well off the beaten track between Hobart & Gordon Dam / Lake Pedder located on an Alpaca stud in the south-west wilderness area. The cabin was very well appointed with a full kitchen, TV DVD etc, with nice little touches to make the place feel homely.

Although it was late November when we visited the weather gods arranged for a heavy dump of snow on the surrounding mountains, fairly heavy rain & low temps. The cabin was very cosy & the beds warm + comfortable. There are not much in the way of shops in the area so you need to self-cater to some extent, although eggs, bread, cereal etc etc etc is all provided to prepare yourself breakfast. Our hosts also provided a lovely home made warm bread & butter pudding with berries and custard for supper - a great touch.

Would stay here again if we re-visit the area and highly recommend the property to friends and other travellers.

Room Tip: There are only two cabins so book well ahead if you are planning to visit this part of Tassie.

this place is amazing. The views spectacular. The hosts are welcoming, kind and friendly. The cabins are well appointed and comfortable. We stayed in mid july, freakish cold weather all over tasmania for our entire stay. Power went out in the valley and derek and anthea invited all 6 of us into there home for breakfast. Derek in snow gear boiling water on the bbq whist it snowed in gail force winds. A rare find in the styx valley with amazing hosts. It was a great bbq coffee. We will be back.

This well appointed and comfortable studio cabin has many extras - TV,CD, DVD player, electric blankets. The kitchen area is well equipped and the whole place clean and very comfortable.
The two cottages are positioned so you have a private view from the front of the lovely countryside, and of course their alpacas.
Everything you need for breakfast is provided - eggs, bacon, cereals, bread, jam, tea coffee etc in large quantity - we left masses of the food Anthea and Derek provided.
There are lovely little extra touches like chocolates and, given it was Easter week hot cross buns and Easter eggs and, to our surprise Anthea knowing we were doing a long walk one day left us a delicious bread and butter pudding for our return.
We felt more like welcome visitors than customers.

Room Tip: Good location for exploring Mount Field NP area

We stayed in the Rose studio Cabin on this delightful Alpaca stud and our stay was so lovely we thought tripadvisor readers should know! Maydena is a very quiet out of the way place on a quiet out of the way island (Tasmania), the last 'settlement' before you reach the famous wilderness of South-west Tasmania. The cabin looks towards beautiful views of the distant mountains. There is a lovely veranda and the cabin interior is really well equiped, cosy, romantic and IMMACULATE. Although it is self-catering accommodation the hosts provided us with a fantastic breakfast and a glass of port on arrival, fabulous. It is so quiet at night you can hear a dog's bark echo around the valley and the stars are incredible. The cabin is very well located for Russell falls, which is well worth a visit. Also you can walk or take a short (unsealed road- watch for potholes) drive up to Junee cave, which is a lovely little hidden attraction. Just fabulous.
Also there is a new 'adventure hub' in Maydena that offers a range of outdoor activities that looks very good.
