About this listing
TINAROO HAVEN is located on Atherton Tableland, with beautiful Lake Tinaroo within 15 minutes walking distance. Enjoy the modern cottage in its natural bushland setting, delight in the abundant wildlife, or go kayaking or explore the attractions of the area.
Tinaroo Haven is B&B council approved.
The Tinaroo Haven cottage and my home, 'Asgard', to which it is connected by a 5 meter timber walkway, were both built by the well known pole house builder, Jon Nott. I fell in love with them at first sight! Unusual, well designed, built from local timber, with ample decks for outside living, they sit privately and peacefully in the middle of my bush block. This adjoins more bushland leading to an arm of Lake Tinaroo.
You will have the cottage and its wide north-facing front veranda to yourself. There is a garden with birdbaths and feeders, and level parking for your car and boat- and you can borrow my kayaks.
The spacious bedroom has a king size double bed, that can be split into two singles; all bedclothes are cotton.
The bathroom has twin showers and a large spa. Bathrobes are supplied.
A luxurious and well-appointed kitchen of the open living-dining area, and a separate study with bed complete the layout. Radio/CD player, books games and tourist info provided. There are security/insect screens and blinds on all windows and doors.
Interaction with guests
The degree of privacy is totally your choice; I have a separate downstairs entry to my home so the linking 5 metre walkway will not be used. I am more than happy to be as helpful as you need while respecting your privacy. You need only ask if you would like me to ferry the kayaks to and from the lake for you.
I will provide a breakfast hamper, fruits, tea and coffee.

I am a retired nurse and antiques dealer, and mother of three grown sons. Born in Denmark, I migrated to Australia as an adult and I love the Australian landscape, its bush and its wildlife-which is why I love living here! I moved to Tinaroo in 2015 and look forward to exploring the amazingly diverse Atherton Tableland.
