Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swallows guest house Had an absolutely fabulous time. The house was beautiful,comfortable and just perfect for a large family. Was disappointed not to have the dock on the river to fish from.The possum's made it interesting ,loved watching the early morning escape from the roof!! We had to try the fire on Saturday night and found it kept us very warm. Even the Easter bunny found his way into the garden for my granddaughter.Close to Salmon Ponds for an early breakfast Sunday morning... will be back for another visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG this place is spectacular We had 4 adults and 6 teenagers here for three nights and it was absolutely fabulous. Heaps of beds, three bathrooms, slow moving river for swimming, great facilities, wood fire, BBQ. And only 45 minutes to Hobart.
