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.

The waterfront area is a great place to stroll and boat trips on the Tamar are readily available. spend the afternoon exploring the many historical sites such as Boag's Brewery, Ritchies Mill, Franklin House, the Queen Victoria Museum and the many beautiful Parks. You might like to enjoy dinner at one of the many fine restaurants on offer before heading back.

Not far from the cottage is a fixed line hang gliding experience in the park, and of course ther is the stadium for sport lovers. Nearby on Sundays is the large market with all sorts of things on offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a home away from home We stayed with our young family for a long weekend. It's a beautiful house with plenty of space for us for all, inside and out. The pantry was well-stocked and we especially loved the family sized spa bath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best family accommodation of its kind in Launcesto After staying in several unmemorable short term stay houses in Launceston we really lucked out with Gorge Cottage. The house retains the 'old world' charm of the period in which it was built while having all the modern conveniences of today. Gorge Cottage is decorated and furnished with style and practicality. It was great to have a couple of different living areas within the house to retreat to. It really was like a home away from home even down to the various spices, salad dressings, rice, flour etc in the cupboard. We stayed at Gorge Cottage several times often for a period of a week or more mostly during in the winter last year and booked well in advance so we never had to stay anywhere else! While it was a comfortable, warm and homely winter house we could see it would be an even more amazing summer house with its internal verandahs and outdoor barbecue and garden areas. Its just 50 metres from a gourmet deli that sells great coffee, wine fresh vegetables and good bread in addition to just about anything else we needed. I haven't mentioned the great views down the river or how close it is to the Cataract Gorge walking tracks or that the owner gave us a great rate for a weekly stay and even better for stays over a week. I highly recommend Gorge Cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cottage with personality! We had a wonderful stay here. The larder unit surprised us with wonderful thoughtful little things / food to make our stay extra comfortable. The rooms were a good size with comfortable bedding. The kitchen was fully equipped with appliances that we needed.Would definitely recommend this place to family and friends when they holiday here. Not forgetting the lemon tree with its bountiful lemons. Loved it!
