This beautifully restored c1912 Federation semi-detached cottage is located in a quiet street in eclectic North Hobart, just minutes from the North Hobart restaurant precinct and an easy 15-20 minutes walk to the city and waterfront.

The central location makes this a perfect base for a family holiday or cultural retreat, with easy access on foot, bike or bus to the best attractions in Hobart.

Enjoy a drink or dinner in one of the many cafes, restaurants or bars in the local precinct, or head down to the waterfront and Salamanca and soak up the harbour side atmosphere.

MONA can be easily accessed by a dedicated bus or ferry from the waterfront, Metro Bus which stops on the North Hobart Strip, or is a 20-30 min cycle along the Intercity Cycleway.

A fresh neutral colour scheme compliments the Tasmanian Oak floorboards, ornate corner fire-places, high ceilings and picture rails and gives this heritage cottage a classic, light and airy feel. The living and dining space with its colourful textiles is a lovely space to unwind after a day out exploring the town. A 32" LED TV, BlueRay device and radio/Ipod speaker are provided for your entertainment - or try the local State Cinema for an independant film.

The 3 large bedrooms provide versatile accommodation for couples, families or groups of friends. The light-filled master bedroom has a Queen-sized bed, the second is a Double and the third bedroom is a Twin Single. The Tas Oak beds are locally crafted, as are the high quality mattresses. All beds have electric blankets and portable panel heaters are available for extra comfort.

The fully equipped galley kitchen is set up for self-catering and is a lovely sunny spot to enjoy a quick breakfast before heading out for the day. We provide tea, coffee, milk and a few other pantry staples and surprises.

The renovated bathroom contains a vanity, toilet, deep enamel bath with shower over, and toasty instant fan heater. Please note that the shower over bath may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues.

Separate laundry has a front loader washing machine and washing powder provided. Large sunny clothes line for drying washing.

A small rear courtyard with deck gets all day sun and provides a private space to enjoy a drink or BBQ and a secure area for children to play. Our grassy local playground Soundy Park is just a few minutes walk away.

An original outhouse / woodshed provides perfect undercover storage for adventure equipment such as bikes and the gate can be padlocked for security.

Heating is provided by an efficient Inverter Heat Pump reverse cycle air conditioner, bedroom panel heaters and a bathroom instant fan heater. We don't really require cooling in summer, but should you feel the heat, the reverse cycle airconditioner can be used, and there are portable fans available.

We provide everything you need for a short or long stay including all linen, soap, shampoo, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little place We had a wonderful couple of days at Jack's Cottage. The cottage was well stocked with everything you could possibly need and the toiletries in the bathroom were a lovely touch. The linens on the bed were great quality and the beds were very comfortable. Electric blankets were a nice addition. The cottage also offers free wifi which made looking up tourist attractions even easier. There are supermarkets and restaurants close by.
