We (my parents and I) stayed in Gannons Rest on the last day of our week tour of Tasmania. My other half is from Tassie so I am very familiar with the island but my parents have never been before so it was a real experience for them. My Dad actually said "Wish we could have stayed here longer, we saved the best 'til last!". Rhett and Dina (the owners) could not have been nicer or more helpful. The fresh bread delivered to the cottage along with the plethora of fresh produce and homemade goodies were a real treat!. A couple of glasses of the very tasty Port didn't go amiss too. I was very aware we would have two double rooms separated by a kitchen and bathroom as I had spoken with Dina prior to booking, and this worked perfectly for us as a party of 3. The additional single bed in one of the bedrooms means you could sleep a family of 5. The beds are on the smallish side but are in keeping with the whole look and feel of this period cottage. We loved it and the beautiful town of Deloraine. We even spotted some platypus down by the river which was great.
