My home is 30 mins away from Cradle Mountain, the gateway to Tasmania's West Coast. Comfortable Queen bed room available for 2, I also have a room 2 single beds and a couch that becomes a Queen-bed in my lounge room. You can have one room or the lot for your friends and family. Up to six can stay as long as you are all together. An old wood-stove heating water and for cooking, a big fire place in my old fashioned country cottage and you share my kitchen. Please bring food with you.
I am offering my home for you to rest for your adventures to and recover from Cradle Mountain. I can also give information about Tasmania's forests and water environments. You can also ask for complete privacy, ask me to advise on your trip which is the best places to go. TV and WiFi, Lounge-room, Kitchen and Bathroom.
The front bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen all available space. You have a key for front door and access to 1 other doors to veranda and garden. I just have had 3 lambs born and their maybe baby chickens soon as well. Parking at the side of the home near the front door.
Interaction with guests
I have my own accomodation end of house. I have to show you how to use my stove and I will light the heater in the common room when needed. I will be around the home if you need help so tell me if you want complete privacy after you settle in.
Other things to note
I am available for garden walks to feed the chickens and sheep if you want to. My sheep are friendly and I have a white grey hound dog called Pearl I have adopted. I will be able to give you the best directions to places of interest in Tasmania. Please don't follow the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) directions as it will take you on a merry cross country ride. Best way to get to my home is on the highway past Devonport and turn at the first sign to Cradle Mountain and Forth. I live on the Forth Road which turns into the Cradle Mountain Road. It is the easiest way to my home and very strait forward. If you are coming from another direction, do ring me up and chat about the best way before you start your journey as internet and phone sometimes do not work in these hills.
I am hoping to have a family atmosphere. This is not a hotel or motel but a family home. I may have my family visit me and hope you enjoy meeting my friends when they arrive. You will be sharing my fridge and washing machine and when drinks are served I will be asking you if you want to share this time with me. it is not a requirement just an understanding that my life should not change and you are included in my home life if you choose to do so.

My home is antiquated, old fashioned, it is my home. I am an artist and love working with glass. I am also a gardener and have a permaculture garden with chickens and sheep and a great darling dog called Pearl. Please don't feed my dog but yes you can play with her. She will be your best friend ever. Hahaha!
My kitchen has a wood fire to cook on and electric or dine out 15 mins drive away at Moina cavern has great food.
There is a TV here you can use but off around 10pm. I live in back of home. I love canoeing and walking rivers and mountains around here. I am willing to help you understand Tasmania and the environment, forests and water. if you want to retreat you must tell me you need privacy as I have plenty to do. You have to share my kitchen. Water is scarce so please tack care not to waste it in summer. Plenty water now after all that rain! I provide safe drinking water.
