“Warmest welcome we’ve ever received”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 July 2012 NEW

Anna and Garry are the perfect hosts at this lovely, laid back and q-u-i-e-t spot in the stunning Huon Valley area. It is a retreat in the truest sense of the word, with birds, marsupials and the rushing water of the river the only interruptions to the solitude. We deeply regretted jamming so many activities into our brief stay here in The Loft, as it meant we only came back late at night for sleeping before setting off early the next morning each day. If we stay again, we will schedule time simply to sit and enjoy the peace. And we may never leave!

This wonderful review was posted to the wrong site by Trip Adviser. We thought you may like to read it. Ange was recommended by a friend to stay in The Loft and we are glad it lived up to their expectations.

Crabtree House (circa 1840 ) is a small and intimate,  self contained set of luxury suites designed for couples, located 30 minutes from Hobart and seven minutes from Huonville.  The Huon Valley is a beautiful part of Tasmania and Huonville is it’s main centre

Tucked in under a mountain called Sleeping Beauty (you’ll see why when you get here) , Crabtree is at the entrance to the lush and fertile Huon Valley. The valley is named after the French explorer Huon de Kermadec who in the late 18th century charted the waters of southern Tasmania.

This luxury Huon Valley accommodation is conveniently situated 30 minutes from Hobart and 45 minutes from Hobart Airport, Crabtree House is ideally positioned for the business or leisure traveller. Perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway, romantic wedding, honeymoon or touring holiday in the Huon Valley . A warm and friendly Huon Valley welcome awaits.

Your stay at Crabtree House is special any time of the year !

The Loft is a very large yet intimate suite which caters to up to four adults in a Queen King configuration. The large deck overlooking Sleeping Beauty and Crabtree River and farm land beyond has a six place outdoor dining setting and a BBQ.

Stay in the Heritage Suite, a fully self contained apartment located separately in Crabtree House in private surrounds, a heritage listed historic home built in 1840 at beautiful Grove, the gateway to Tasmania’s magnificent Huon Valley.

The Heritage Suite is designed for couples only. Not suitable for children.

This truly gives you the Huon Valley experience with self contained cottages and the freedom to eat your breakfast in your own dining room at the time you wish. If you wish to cook dinner you can.
