Self-contained cabin

2 guests • 1 bedroom • breakfast options available at checkout

Laid Back Manor offers a unique accommodation experience for two in Tasmania’s beautiful Huon Valley. You will be lodging in a modern, self-contained cabin with queen-sized bed, kitchenette and ensuite on a picturesque two-acre property. The grounds boast a babbling creek that flows all year round, a seasonal waterfall and an abundance of native flora and fauna, including rare birds. Guests have exclusive access to the onsite golf course. There is NO TV in the cabin although there is excellent internet available. Standard check-in time is 2pm and check-out is 10am.

Take a leisurely stroll around the property, or enjoy the view from the comfort of your private living area with a local Pinot in hand. Your hosts, Kylie and Adam, live on site and will be happy to offer you complete privacy or to regale you with fascinating stories about the property and the local area.

Laid Back Manor is perfectly situated at the gateway to the Huon Valley, with easy access to Huonville and to the tight-knit apple-growing and fishing communities of the Huon. If you get tired of the excellent local produce and cute roadside stalls, head into the big city to see the sights. Hobart is an easy 25 minute drive away.
