Welcome to Eagles Rise, as my mother named it
My home is based high up on a hill in Central North TASMANIA, with glimpses of the ocean through the trees and yet only 10 minutes drive to the main town, Ulverstone, and the beach
The accommodation available is a studio room the cabin with a kitchen area and your own separate bathroom. A cozy weekend getaway, with, I'm told, the comfiest queen bed I have designated this accommodation for two people only, however, babies in their own porta-cots are also very welcome :
There are some dvds in the cabin available for your use, as well as some well loved board games
A bath seat also available on request, should someone need it for an easier shower.
The cabin is attached to the main house with a separate hallway in between and has it's own front door as well as West facing French doors out to the driveway. A washing machine is also available for use.
There is also a little private garden on the Eastern side of the house, where you can have your morning coffee, or dine under the stars. This garden is enclosed, so you can be in peace or if you like dogs, invite my gorgeous Tippi in to join you She is a new addition to Eagles Rise and is a beautiful Irish Wolfhound cross, very gentle in nature and still very much a puppy at 16 months
Aside from the small kitchenette area inside the cabin, there is a large bbq also available for your use in the cabin garden. When you don't feel like cooking, you can have Pizza delivered to your door by the Red Grasshopper in town
A picnic backpack is in the laundry cupboard, and camping chairs are available too, should you wish to go somewhere for a picnic Down at Isandula Lake is a great spot. A set of boules is also in the cupboard for a game on the front lawn and board games are in the cabin for rainy days :
The property is on 35 acres in a rural area, with many tourist attractions nearby, such as Leven Canyon, Gunns Plains Caves, Wings Wildlife Park Tasmania's largest wildlife/animal park and Cradle Mountain is only 80 kilometers away.
It's a great spot to base yourself whilst traveling around this area of Tasmania, or even if you are just breezing through
A third of the property is bush, which is great for walks, especially if you like birds. You can even walk further into the adjoining plantation forest, or down the road to the lake.
Being in a pocket of many creative cottage industries, there is a myriad of art galleries to explore, as well as antique stores and lots of little cafes to relax in and drink excellent coffee Penguin beach is only 15 minutes away, where there is a large Sunday market to browse. The well renowned 'Wild' restaurant is there too, but book ahead
The nearest airport is Devonport Airport, 25 minutes drive from the house. Devonport harbour, where the Spirit of Tasmania comes in from Melbourne, is only 20 minutes. A flight from Melbourne to Devonport is around one hour. Launceston Airport is an hour and a half drive away and to Hobart from Devonport, it is around a three and a half to four hours drive.
If you are needing professional photographs done during your stay, perhaps to announce an engagement or renewal of vows, I am a professional portrait photographer. Please check out Headshots Australia through Google.
If you have other friends or family traveling with you, I will soon have 'The Powerhouse @ Eagles Rise' completed It is primarily set up as a photographic studio, but has all the accommodation needs and I will set it up on Stayz soon. I also have two caravans that are great for the kids Once completed, they will be listed as 'Eagles Rise Caravans'.
I look forward to meeting you
A cleaning fee of $25 is added to the total of your stay for Caroline, who does a wonderful job in getting the accommodation ready for your stay :
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A MINIMUM STAY OF 2 NIGHTS OVER THE HOLIDAY PERIODS. Thank you :
