Vanson's in the Valley is a new, modern,contemporary alternative to the B & B market in the Huon Valley. Our rural retreat, nestled high in the hills surrounded by virgin blue gum forest, offers breathtaking views overlooking the stunning Huon River.
Upon your arrival afternoon tea will be served .... hmm warm scones fresh from the oven.
We offer the peace and quiet of the country with gorgeous views from your room and living area. The perfect place to retreat to after exploring the many attractions and features of the Huon Valley and beyond. For those who truly wish to unwind, simply relax and take in the views and sounds of the valley from our gardens. It's a bird watchers paradise and the lucky ones will spot one of the two resident wedge tailed eagles that frequent the skies above.
Attractions in the Valley
The small historic town of Franklin situated on the Huon River in the famous Huon Valley, celebrated it's 175th anniversary in 2011 and is well known as a retreat for city dwellers as well as a must see destination for interstate visitors and travellers. We are located 1km south of the Franklin township.
The Huon Valley area is famous for its fresh food production, vineyards and aquaculture products. Why not try some of the fresh products on offer either directly from the producers or at one of the restaurants and cafes along the way... many of which feature local produce in their menus.
Places to visit include: Hastings Cave and Thermal Springs, Hartz Mountains National Park, Wooden Boat Centre, Tahune Airwalk, Ida Bay Historic Railway and many farm gate producers, cafes, restaurants and vineyards.
Vanson's in the Valley offers a choice of gourmet breakfasts using as many Tasmanian products as possible. We grow lots of our own vegetables and raise very contented, some would call spoilt, chickens who provide us with the best eggs in town. We offer homemade jams and bread, a selection of seasonal fruits and locally caught salmon.
Choose from continental, bacon and eggs Vanson style or savory salmon scrambles. Fruit juice and freshly brewed coffee and tea of your choice is always available.
