We had a lovely three night stay. The cottage is ideally situated for an exploration of the Huon Valley including the Hartz Mountains. The cottage itself is very comfortable with features such as the open fire, deck overlooking the river, and spa. It was lovely to be able to hear the river and enjoy the company outside of the birds...

This was return visit for us, can't stay away! Beautiful and peaceful surrounds, complimented by the well appointed accomodation. Thanks for the bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate Valentines day. We will be back again, hopefully in the near future.

I booked a night at Crabtree River Cottages for my son and new wife, for their wedding night. They just loved it, said how beautiful the setting was by the river, the peace was just what they needed after a hectic though happy day. John had left a bottle of champagne for them, a lovely surprise, and delicious breakfast provisions....

A lovely cottage that had everything we could have wished for including provisions for a delicious breakfast! Loved the location beside the gorgeous river and we felt so refreshed with just one night stay! Great location 5mins from Huonville. We will definitely be back when we are in the region again!

This was a great spot only 5 mins to the lovely town of Huonville! The provisions were more than adequate for our breakfast the 3 days we stayed! Loved the spa bath with good jets that soothed the muscles after a day spent walking and sightseeing! This property more than met our expectations and I would love to visit again!

The cottages were ideal and roomy for our two night stay. Nicely appointed and very clean. Close enough to Hobart but far enough out to enjoy the country side, and very quiet location.The breakfast provisions were great.

Stayed for 5 nights and were impressed with all aspects of the accommodation. It's situation beside a babbling stream was restful, the breakfast provisions (hot and cold) plentiful and furnishings and heating options made for a very comfortable stay. We explored the south east with ease from here but also tripped back into Hobart for movies and golf without too...

An idyllic location and the cottage exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable, tasteful decor, and very well appointed. The b-b-q, log fire, and generous breakfast provisions including plunger coffee were most welcome. We will definitely stay again!

This little cottage situated besides a beautiful creek, with wood heater, colonial style decor and nice bathroom. A good place for any couple to have a proper retreat. The bed is so comfortable and the breakfast supply was provided. The only downside is the cottage can be a little bit cleaner, especially the couple spa. Me and my partner keep...

We recently enjoyed a restful stay in this delightful cottage in such a peaceful setting. The cottages are meticulously maintained with thoughtful touches including the prepared log fire and generous breakfast provisions. We would highly recommend this as a tranquil retreat and perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Huonville region.

“Eliza potentially could be quieter than Emily though the dozen or so cars that pass could hardly bother anyone. I did like the look of the fireplace in Emily so really both are win/win.”
