Green Gables B&B
Ranked #2 of 4 Cygnet B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 17, 2012

The beautiful Huon Valley, and associated Food Trail is a must do when visiting Tasmania. The picturesque historic village of Cygnet, is just the place for good food and fine accommodation, such as ‘Green Gables’. Beate and Paul are charming hosts. The added luxury of Beate’s luscious afternoon tea cakes is a special and very welcome touch.
We stayed for five nights in the Waterview suite complete with a comfortable sitting room. We will definitely stay at Green Gables again.

We stayed at this fabulous bed and breakfast (Garden Apartment) in March 2012. The photographs on the website simply do not do it justice! Our bijou garden apartment room was lovely - tastefully and stylishly decorated, very comfortable and immaculately clean. We were very impressed. There were also many beautiful little touches and extras that you do not find elsewhere and that made our stay extra special - a 4 star B & B absolutely! The location was also very tranquil with lovely views from the property. Our apartment was also very private and although we didn't have water views from the garden apartment we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the very private deck overlooking the garden sipping Earl Grey tea and savouring Beate's beautiful home-made cake. Beate could also not have been more friendly and accommodating and even offered to drop us off and pick us up from the fabulous Red Velvet lounge restaurant in Cygnet (an also must do!!) so that we could both enjoy some wine! We were overwhelmed by Beate's generosity. Its not something (sadly) that one often sees anymore ..... DO NOT by pass this lovely bed and breakfast if visiting funky, bohemian little Cygnet on the Huon Trail....

Stayed in the Waterview apt in February 2012. It was relaxing to have so much room--living room with dining table and food/microwave section, big bedroom with access to a patio with table and chairs, and big bathroom, plus separate entrance. We enjoyed the huge breakfast and the host, Paul, was helpful. We did not get to meet Beate, who was away that weekend. A few minor things could have been better but on the whole we had a lovely time travelling around the region and relaxing at Green Gables.

Beate & Paul run a beautiful B & B. We stayed in the Waterview apartment, which was spacious, spotlessly clean and exceedingly comfortable. The breakfast provisions were generous to say the very least! Prior to our arrival we had stocked up on a few additional supplies, none of which we needed! Every day there was some new fruit - raspberries, cherries, nectarines etc - plus some home made cake and biscuits. Despite not particularly liking sweet treats, we ate the lot and thoroughly enjoyed all the temptations! The view and location are peaceful and not too far from Cygnet village (a couple of minutes drive away). Everything had been thought of and provided. The hosts live in a separate area of the house, but at no time did we hear them or any other noise. As we wanted a complete rest, this was perfect. Comfy, supportive beds and a great bathroom with a shower and spa bath rounded out the lovely furnishings. Plenty of cupboard space and a sunny verandah to sit on and sip a glass of wine in the afternoon, whilst watching the sun go down over Gardner Bay. The whole of the Huon Valley area is a little gem, and very unspoilt. Absolutely recommended as a place to stay for mature age couples such as ourselves, or anyone seeking peace and tranquillity. We'll be back!

If you would like to have a quite break and re-charge or would like to do Huon trail and Bruny island or both you could not find better place than Green-Gables. Love every moment of our stay.

My partner and I had a short break in Tasmania before Christmas. We stayed at the Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart, which was a fabulous experience, then made our way down the Huon Valley. We did not expect to find as great an accommodation experience in rural Tassie, but we were wrong! Green Gables is in a lovely location, with wonderful scenery and attractions within an easy drive. The waterfront apartment where we stayed was extremely spacious, very nicely furnished and comfortable. Beate and her family were most welcoming, and even provided extra utensils for us to cook our own meals with the aid of the bar be que on the verandah. Plus a gift of Christmas stollen from Beate's mom when we left.

We would happily return to this lovely part of the island, and could easily stay for a week at Green Gables. Highly recommended.

The Huon Valley boasts many beautiful, picturesque locations - when we came across this lovely b&b quite by accident, we didn't realise how relaxing and comfortable our stay would be. As the Waterview Apartment was taken, we booked the studio for 2 nights but ended up staying for 3 nights - Beatte and Paul were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay so enjoyable! Their cats were something else! The afternoon delights (in the form of delicious homemade cakes) were something to look forward to after touring all day! The food fairy would deliver more than enough breakfast provisions each day and my husband and I would waddle to the car each morning! The Parisian influenced decor was very relaxing and the water view from the little verandah was wonderful! You could also walk around the gardens at your leisure! An added bonus to this b&b is that it is approximately 1 hour's drive from Hobart! We can't wait to go back and stay again!
