Cameron and Jodie were delightful hosts (when Cam's complimentary shortbreads ran out, they gave us a batch to take with us when we left). Schouten House is in a convenient location - close to town and beach but away from highway traffic. Our room was generous in size and had a comfy bed and modern bathroom (sometimes concerns in restored old buildings). I know it's not cheap but if you're after a really quality B&B in a genuine colonial setting, I know of few better. Swansea is a gateway to a beautiful stretch of coastline, punctuated by a string of hospitable wineries, and we made it our base for 3 days.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Schouten House Bed and Breakfast is a heritage listed home, rich in history and a well known landmark on Tasmania's East Coast. Built in 1844 as an inn it is one of the first substantial buildings to appear in Swansea when the township was being established around a military base on Waterloo Point. Now a comfortable bed and breakfast offering traditional accomodations and a warm welcome, it is an excellent place to call home while you explore the coast and Freycinet Peninsula, or just as a relaxing getaway. Hearty cooked breakfasts, including options such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or our popular pancakes with (really real) maple syrup and bacon, are included for all guests. ... more less
