Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place to escape! The owners of this property have created an experience which we loved and will remember for years to come, it's a real credit to them. From the minute you enter Drift Inn, the relaxation washes over you, we had the fire roaring within minutes and loved the fact that you could soak up the view from every part of the living, dining and kitchen areas thanks to the huge glass walls facing the bay. The bedding was comfortable, the house was very clean and the little extras, especially in the pantry and garden were greatly appreciated! We couldn't recommend Drift Inn highly enough for anyone who wants to get away from the usual hustle and bustle of tourist areas, enjoy the beauty and peace of the Huon Valley and the Bay and share your nights with the stars and Possums!! Thank you guys for sharing your fantastic home with us! Hope that our plants are giving the garden some added pleasure to others!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely shack by the water's edge My partner and I enjoyed a lovely two night stay at Drift Inn. The shack was very comfortable and right on the water's edge. The views were stunning - a quiet and restful location. Cygnet is only a short drive away, so you can stock up with supplies and enjoy terrific coffee and meals at the local restaurants. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 star accommodation with 5 star views! What a magical view to wake up to each day even though it was wet and windy! Very much a 'shack' but lots of added comforts, lovely big sofa and recliner for relaxing and taking in that view! Comfy bed but not so comfy pillows! Most pillows were way too big and hard! Combustion fire was lovely but very hard to get an overnight burn and as it was the only form of heating provided some mornings were a bit chilly until we could get it going again! we both feel there was perhaps too much extra furniture inside which made the house feel cluttered. The magnificent big couch and one large recliner are more than enough even for a big crowd. We did love our three night stay though and would visit again if the opportunity arose in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Location Location Location The view out over the crystal clear waters of Eggs and Bacon Bay was nothing short of magic!!! Situated in a quite little pocket of holiday homes and beachside shacks, the home was very warm and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfortable and the property offered everything you need for s relaxing beach side getaway. We cooked with fresh herbs out of the garden each evening, and even made rhubarb and apple pie one night for desert. Thank you for allowing us to share your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bliss! Drift Inn provides the perfect beach 'shack' getaway. Cosy, comfortable and clean with amazing views out over the water - we absolutley loved this place. Lovely warm beds, huge couches for lounging around and good kitchen with generous pantry and a vege garden (rhubard was delicious - thank you). A definite highlight of our holiday was enjoying a bottle of wine with the delicious fresh oysters and mussels we collected off the rocks - doesn't get much better than that!
