Description

Views, garden, peaceful ambience, spa bath, Wi-Fi and local calls a place to relax and enjoy northern Tasmania

We fell in love with Gorge Cottage at first sight. Her original features and warmth charmed us. The location was perfect - close to the magnificent Cataract gorge and overlooking the Tamar River and Launceston. The popular Trevallyn Grocer and Cafe is only a few doors down, where an array of gourmet products is on offer and you can also enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch. There is also a post office, newsagent, doctor's surgery and bakery

Her Art Deco leadlight windows and doors, baltic floors and fireplaces provided a great foundation to work with in our renovations. Our objective was to create a warm, comfortable and aesthetically beautiful environment which would invite our guests to relax and have a memorable stay.

Gorge Cottage has three bedroomstwo queen, one bunk with double on bottom,single on top sleeping up to 7 with plenty of living space and would be perfect for honeymooners, couples, group of friends or families. The house is welcoming and makes a great base for exploring the surrounding areas.

The configuration of the house starts with a lovely enclosed veranda where you can sit and enjoy your morning cuppa whilst watching the mist over the river with the stunning background of the hills beyond. In the evening the scenery is transformed into a sparkling christmas tree of lights. The lounge with its electric flame heater is so cosy and romantic, it invites you to curl up on the couch and the family room is beautifully set up to watch the T.V., listen to music or just relax with a glass of local red. We have available a great range of CD's and DVD's for your enjoyment. Local calls and internet with wi-fi is included.

The dining room has a large table, perfect for gathering around and next to the large gourmet kitchen, which is fitted with stainless steel appliances including full size SS Fridge and everything you need to cook up a storm.

The first and second bedrooms have queen size beds and fireplaces and the third bedroom has a bunk with double and single bed. There are cupboards in all the bedrooms. Quality linen and Egyptian cotton towels are provided for your enjoyment and comfort. The study has a computer desk and great vista. The bathroom is well appointed with a spa bath to relax in. The toilet is in a separate powder room and the laundry is fully equipped.

The large back yard is delightful with a big deck and gazebo overlooking the various trees, including a large lemon tree, which you are welcome to help yourself to. There is a great outdoor setting and a BBQ for your convenience.

We hope that you will enjoy your stay at Gorge Cottage as much as we have creating her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful home away from home. The Gorge cottage has character and charm and all the comforts and conveniences of home. There is plenty of space for the family to spread out and a yard to enjoy. It was clean and comfortable. We had our 13, 12 and 10 year olds and it was a great place to stay for kids. Great communication from the owners too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location, everything we needed After a long day trip on the ferry then the drive from Devonport, we would have slept anywhere but we were instead delighted when we arrived at the Gorge Cottage. Plenty of room, great view, location, nearby amenities and very well equipped. Very happy to have stayed here. Very comfortable for a family of 4 with a bedroom to spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottage ! We , a family of 4 , thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Gorge cottage . Next time we would stay a week. The beds were very comfortable, comparable to a 5 star hotel bed. The kitchen was very well equipped with sharp knifes, condiments and coffee machine. There's even a study for us to setup our laptop and internet access for quick lookup for restaurants, places to visit etc. It's really a very well equipped and tastefully furnished cottage with views over the river.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Everything you need for a holiday with family and friends. Walter is very efficient in responding to any queries. The pantry is stocked with all those things you never have when you're cooking on holiday. Lovely vibè in the house and stunning views over Launceston. Fabulously close to the local shops and cafe. Gorge Cottage is suitable for either a winter or summer stay. I really appreciated the Wi-Fi, printer and smart tv too. Thanks, and I hope to stay there again.
