Your luxury hideaway…. anytime

Welcome to Crabtree River Cottages, two self-contained, luxury one-bedroom cottages nestled on the banks of the Crabtree River.

Just 30 minutes from Hobart and seven minutes from Huonville, this is the perfect base for exploring Hobart’s cultural highlights, like the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), as well as the natural beauty of the Huon Valley.

Both cottages have high, vaulted ceilings and large verandas overlooking the Crabtree River and the pastures beyond.

Slow combustion fires, two person spas and French-influenced bedrooms make these the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway.

Relax on the veranda, watching the river flow past.

Cook a meal in the kitchenette using produce gathered during a day exploring the Huon Valley, then curl up by the fire sipping your complimentary port.

Breakfast provisions are provided, with eggs, bacon and apple juice all sourced locally.
