Description

My 1910 Federation cottage has a special feel to it which many comment on. It has been decorated with a mix of local art and salvage or retro furniture is light with views of the mountain from bedroom and deck. It is also situated in a great location.

Come and enjoy the cottage's quiet but central location and its views of the mountain. The main bedroom is very large and sunny with a comfortable queen size bed with electric blanket and a view of Mt Wellington from the bed and deck. The second bedroom is a good size. A spare mattress may be arranged if needed.

Two electric heaters are provided and a very effective wood heater and fire wood for chilly days.

Breakfast muesli, tea and coffee and some cooking basics are provided for your stay.

If you are after a palatial, or luxury mod-con experience, my modest cottage is probably not for you. Rather it is homey, comfortable and a little quirky with its own cheerful style. Typical of lean-to additions to heritage homes, the bathroom, is basic and compact but clean and adequate. The loo, once an outdoor toilet, is now enclosed and connected to the house. There isn't a washing machine in the house but I use a very clean, well-run laundromat one small block from the cottage; detergent and bucket are available at the house for handwashing.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to welcoming you to my Hobart cottage in the near future

The Neighborhood

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very lovely stay The retro cottage was very homely. Décor was charming and the owner very approachable. Close to cafes and Hobart city. If again in Hobart would stay without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable rustic cottage My family and I had a wonderful time at the Retro cottage. It is well appointed and very comfortable, and very clean upon our arrival. The beds in particular are cozy and amazing! Our stay was at the end of winter, and the wood burner was more than adequate to keep the house warm. The bathroom set up is a tad rustic, but serviceable. There is a lovely cafe nearby (Ginger Brown, on Macquarie St) where we had our Sunday coffees and breakfast - a real treat! Also there is great access to the rivulet walking track. The biggest pleasure was dealing with the owner, Suzanne. She is welcoming and helpful - she even went so far as to send a scarf I forgot in the cottage to me through the post. What service! We will return on our next visit to Hobart!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good spot for a taste of Hobart! For our first visit to Hobart we quite enjoyed our Friday & Saturday nights here. Great location with restaurant & cafe within 5 minutes walk & an enjoyable walk down the hill to historic Battery Point & the markets. Appreciated the wood heater set to be lit. A little more comfort could be had with an updated sofa! All round good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely stay full of charm My husband, 11 month old son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage. It was in a great location, a comfortable walk to Hobart town and a great little cafe, Ginger Brown was less than 5 minutes walk. The house was clean and well-presented in its retro style. We particularly appreciated the fires being lit before we arrived and the generous supplies in the kitchen including tea, coffee, milk and other bits and bobs you don't always find in a holiday rental. Thanks for a lovely stay!
