The historic Postmaster's Lodge has been recently renovated and converted into a self catering guest house available for short term rentals. The original building also operates as the township's local Post Office and will soon include a General Store.
On the Main Street in the beautiful riverside township of Derby the Lodge offers wonderful views and a large back garden that overlooks the nearby river.
The Lodge is perfectly located at the head of Derby's world renowned Blue Derby MTB Trails and provides everything you need for your MTB experience of a lifetime.
There are three bedrooms, an inviting living room, newly renovated bathroom with shower, fully equipped kitchen and dining room with access to the private gardens.
MTB facilities include:
- secure undercover bike storage space
- bike wash down hoses to clean up after a day on the forest mountain trails
- the 'wash 'n post' coin operated launderette
- barbeque facilities.
The Postmaster's Lodge is central to all the Derby township has to offer. Just a short walk along Main Street to local cafes, pizza restaurant, stores, pub and bike hire and shuttle services.
The township itself is the perfect spot not just for the famous Blue Derby MTB Trails but for bush walking, fishing and kayaking.
It is a great base for touring Tasmania's beautiful north eastern wineries, waterfalls, forests and beaches: for example it is just 90 minutes from the spectacular Bay of Fires and 60 minutes to the famous Pipers Brook Vineyard.
Derby is also home to the annual madcap Derby River Derby and regularly hosts the best MTBers from around Australia and overseas for events such as the upcoming Asia-Pacific Continental Enduro Series.
By the way, if you are planning on traveling onto Hobart your hosts Grant and Luise also have 3 modern apartments in their recently renovated building in North Hobart, just 5 minutes from the local entertainment strip. There is a spacious 2 bedroom apartment sleeping up to six and two stunning studios ideal for couples but with sofa beds for an extra two guests.
