Cradle Mountain Love Shack is a self contained alpine cabin situated on over one hundred acres of native bushland at Daisy Dell just 20 km. by road from Cradle Mountain National Park. It's perfectly designed for a romantic getaway for two and we invite 'young' lovers of all ages. Enjoy absolute privacy in our 'fairy-tale' cottage. We regret that we are unable to accommodate pets including budgies, goldfish or children.

Boasting an inviting, timber-lined interior, the downstairs area has a cosy lounge with wood heater. There's a large television for viewing a range of videos and DVDs and a stereo system complete with CDs. At the western downstairs end of the cabin is a well equipped kitchen and rustic, built in dining setting.

The bathroom also downstairs contains a shower, hand basin and toilet - plus a washing machine and laundry trough for those extended stays.

A beautifully crafted staircase using natural Tasmanian timbers leads to the bedroom on the mezzanine floor. Here you'll find a comfortable, hand-built, rustic timber double bed with electric blanket which, together with the steep pitched cathedral ceiling, adds to the romantic atmosphere. For individual traveling companions wishing to enjoy our 'little piece of paradise', there is a comfortable single bed in addition to the double.

As mentioned, the cabin has a fully equipped kitchen and, upon arrival, you will be provided with supplies for both continental and cooked breakfast included in the tariff. If you have particular dietary requirements, please let us know beforehand and we'll do our best to fulfil these.

Our bushland property has been designated Habitat and 'Land for Wildlife' and is home to a wide variety of native flora, fauna and birdlife providing some wonderful photographic opportunities. Enjoy a quiet walk by the stream Daisy Dell and Bull Creek run through the property, an uphill jaunt to 'Cradle View' a great area for a picnic with stunning views of Cradle Mountain or, if you fancy a more challenging ramble, delightful waterfalls along the track leading to Lemonthyme Lodge provide a half - full day's walk.

We are in very close proximity to world-class trout fishing lakes and streams so remember to bring your fishing tackle

With Cradle Mountain, beautiful beaches, forest walks and many towns and tourist attractions close by, the area has so much to offer. So whether you're rekindling an older romance, beginning a new one or just wish to enjoy some quality time together, we're sure that you'll enjoy your stay here at Cradle Mountain Love Shack.

Your Hosts: Dave and Dru

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful and cozy Thanks to Dave and Dru for hosting our memorable 4 night stay at the Love Shack. We loved the proximity to Cradle Mountain National Park where we had two great days of bush walking and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet relaxing at the Love Shack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! An awesome little cabin, had everything we needed plus more! Super clean, comfortable, warm and cosy, was exactly what we were looking for. Great spot to use as a base to explore Cradle Mt National Park and surrounds. Just wish we had more time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treasure! The Love Shack is rustic and quirky, warm and comfortable, surrounded by wallabies and gum trees. We used it as a base for exploring Cradle Mountain National Park, and it was wonderful to come home to after a day of exploring. Having said that, it would be a wonderful place to stay at all day... The mezzanine bedroom was pretty as a picture, the Tassie Barrel wood heater was wonderfully cosy, all the windows look out onto bushland, there's a good sound system with a large selection of CDs and lots of DVDs, though no tv. It's a place to get away from it all, in comfort. The hosts provided us with a warm welcome, breakfast provisions, lots of extra treats and all the "extras" we could possibly want for a self catering holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely spot The cabin was gorgeous. Lots of quirky features and everything you could possibly need available for use. The owners Dave and Dru were helpful but unobtrusive. The wildlife was amazing. A truly lovely couple of days spent at this location.
