“Green yet practical, and in a great location.”
Reviewed December 31, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This place is just what it claimed to be. It aims to be ecologically correct, and succeeds while remaining practical to use and being really quite upmarket in aesthetic design and quality of fittings and furnishings. It is accessible by sealed road from Hobart in 90 mins, and gives access to many delightful locations for hiking etc., though you will need to use unsealed roads to reach many of these, which is a problem with car hire conditions. But that is a problem with Tasmania generally rather than with this property. It,s not cheap, but then you do get somewhere individual and rather special for your outlay. incidentally, do the evening BBQ trip on the Ida Bay Railway that is right next door: it was a lot of fun, and gave good wildlife spotting too,

Hi jeremy,

Thanks for your review. Glad to see that you engaged with the nature features and enjoyed the Ida Bay Railway.

Due to our diligent cleaning regime, single night stays can tend to be expensive, especially when we need to pay penalty rates for cleans after Sunday departures. Per night costs drop substantially for long stays and Mon - Thurs.

Cheers

“The most wonderful experience”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This was the most wonderful accommodation which was organised for us through Huon Valley escapes and Paul Dimmick. The house is situated south of Dover and the house sits in an open buttongrass plain - it seemed in the middle of nowhere. All you can see are the mountains which constantly change colour with the changes of the weather. The house is eco friendly with a combustion toilet, solar and wood heated hot water and the rooms are large and beautifully appointed. There is an outside bath on the verandah where you can relax and watch the ever changing mountains in the distance. At night the stars glow brightly and the silence in deafening. I loved this experience. We stayed two nights but three would be better!

G'day Elizabeth,

Thanks for your visit and your review. It seems that Buttongrass Retreat was a good match for your values. Many of our guests have similar comments about longer stays being better. It really is a great place to relax and watch the mountains change through the day.

Glad that you found our itinerary organisation helpful. Huon Valley Escapes offers a personal service where we match each guest with the most appropriate experiences from our extensive portfolio of accommodation and activities.

Thanks and we hope to see you again,

Paul
