A quiet location at the water’s edge. Master bedrooms at two levels open to private decks with fantastic views of the beautiful Tamar River – literally a stones-throw away. The trees and their feathered friends are much closer – little more than arms length
The tranquillity is broken only by the chatter of those frisky birds: perfect for wiling away the hours with a good book or maybe even catching glimpses of the river’s resident seal. Oh, and let’s not forget the soaring sea eagles – locals who visit from their eyrie at the other side of Spring Bay.
Living rooms at each level also open to wide decks and great views, and are serviced by reverse-cycle air-conditioners 'heat pumps'.
There are four bedrooms 2 up, 2 down with three queen beds and two singles maximum 6 adults. While each level is self-contained, there's only one occupancy at a time, so your privacy is assured. The standard nightly rate of $150 $155 from 1 January 2017 is for the use of one queen-size bedroom, whether by a couple or single person. Additional persons are $15 per night. Children up to age 12 are free. A minimum 2 night’s stay applies.
The Tamar River Valley is special. Home for the Pannarlapannaa Aboriginal people, Matthew Flinders explored the river Kanamaluka in a row boat on his circumnavigation of the island in 1798-99. Today, visitors explore through a charming network of country roads that connect the various hamlets along the valley’s 70km length and the many wineries and café-restaurants that they support.
From your home at Deviot you will be central to the valley’s delights – about a half-hour’s drive to Launceston, as well as Greens Beach and Georgetown/Low Head great ocean beaches, with myriad scenic attractions, walking trails and historical places of interest in between.
Be warned: there’s every chance that having stayed, you'll be planning a return visit to our much-loved, modest home on the river in Tassie.
