There are three bedrooms available for guests. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. The rooms are sympathetically designed and beautifully decorated with local artwork. Large fluffy towels, quality bed linen, handmade soaps and eco shampoo are features we think you will enjoy. Each bedroom has an external door directly onto a patio, ideal for sipping drinks and watching the sunset. Since the lodge is designed as a solar passive building the rooms are warm and sunny in the spring and autumn but well shaded in the summer. Because the sun is unpredictable in the winter we use an underfloor heating system to keep the rooms cosy and warm.
Forest Walks Lodge is off the electricity grid and we generate all our own power, as well as hot water from the sun. Therefor there is no fridge or electric jug in the bed rooms. We can accommodate fresh food in the kitchen fridge if required and tea and coffee making facilites are available to all guests in the dining area. There is a collection of natural history books about Tasmania and a few fiction books for guests to read. We have a few games and some baby toys. There is no television but we do have a collection of DVD’s if you have a computer to play them on. In house massages are available for $80 per person.
Activities – Enjoy a delicious dinner after your day’s activities
Stay for a 2 day break or come with friends or family for a week. Enjoy bushwalking, flyfishing, birdwatching or tour the local gourmet food outlets and galleries in the Meander Valley.
Spacious, comfortable queen room and ensuite with a bath and a shower. The room is at the end of the house making it more private. There are views to the forest to the north and the mountains to the south. French doors open onto a patio and can be used as a private entrance to the room. Underfloor heating as well as a gas wall heater ensure the room is very warm in winter.
The fittings and fixtures are all unique and the work of local artists. You won’t find another bedroom in Tasmania quite like this one.
Spacious bedroom with queen bed and ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. This room looks out onto the mountains and the forests of the Great Western Tiers. There is a private patio with table and chairs. An extra single bed can be added to the room for a third adult or a child.
