Thanks David for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the Lodge and its ambiance.
Tucked away in a remote and beautiful valley where you really can hear the sound of silence surrounded by pristine rain forest and high ridges. Sean and Rosemary are passionate conservationsits protecting the natural environmemn and a walk with Sean ensures you'll never see forests in the same light again.
Superb home-cooked meals, well-appointed comfortable rooms and stunning vistas transports you back to utter peace and quiet. Highy recommended
The guided walk with Sean is one of the highlights of staying at Forest Walks Lodge. His in-depth knowledge or the Tasmanian forest environment, the species diversity and ecological processes that formed it is the result of 35 years working in the area as a consultant and heritage expert. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
What an amazing place. Total peace and stupendous views. Food was excellent and the hosts were great company . I was their only guest and they spared no effort in making me feel welcome. They were heading into their busy time. Do go on the half day guided walk into the rain forest. This was the highlight of my Tasmanian adventure. Super comfy room with great views.
Thanks Enid, we try to make our single guests feel special. They usually get our undivided attention if there is no one else here which is sometimes the case, and if there is there is usually something to talk about over dinner. Our guests seem to share similar interests and often dinner conversation is lively.
If you are looking for a beautiful place in the Western Tiers with accessible walks, wonderful meals and hosts very knowledgeable about the area, look no further than Forest Walks Lodge. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with comfortable beds, and luxurious baths, a lovely outdoor space to watch the lovely sunsets and the impressive southern stars. While you are close to the pretty town of Deloraine where you can get provisions for walks and have a meal, take advantage of the wonderful meals at the Forest Walks Lodge where a delicious meal with locally sourced foods can be prepared for you by your friendly hosts. You will also be able to join in walks right from the Lodge. There is much to be enjoyed at the Lodge and the surrounding area.
Dear gina, so glad you were able to do some of our great short walks. The Great Western Tiers around us is one of the best walking destinations in Tasmania. There are over 25 different walks of different grades and levels of ability from difficult to easy. So something for everyone. We recommend our guests stay at least 3 days to get a good insight in to varied activities available in the Deloraine district.
What an outstanding place to visit on out Tasmanian Itinerary arranged by Susie de Carteret, great host Sean an Rosemary food and hospitality where excellent.
Fabulous walk in the World Heritage Forest with Sean, his knowledge and expertise is second to none. Anyone visiting Tasmania should take a in a few days here to learn about ecology of this wonderful place. Thank you for the experience it will live long in the memory.
Hi John, Thanks for the review. The walk with Sean is usually eyeopening and can be pitched at any level depending on your previous knowledge and experience. If you take this walk early on your Tasmanian visit it will set you up for what you are looking at all over Tasmania.
In a remote forest area this B&B/lodge has been built with eco-considerations in mind and is v. attractive and comfortable. Our first night Rosemary cooked us a delicious meal of smoked trout and home-grown lettuce, venison shoulder with pommes daupinoises, carrots & courgettes, & apple & rhubarb crumble & home-made ice-cream. We had a comfortable night apart from the smoke alarm deciding to go off! Sean, back from a trip, cooked us duck eggs & bacon for breakfast and a truly amazing master-chef dinner: buckwheat mushroom pancakes, tempura pink ling with courgette veg & flower, dessert of lemon & mandarin curd tart, kuquat in brandy, kumquat sorbet & a little glass of cointreau - wow!
The citrus deserts have certainly been a winner this year. Sorry about the smoke alarm. We have recently had them both replaced so hopefully that won't happen again. The courgettes have dried up but we have very nice kale in the garden at the moment.
