Welcome to Tasmania and all the beautiful seasons!
My home is based high up on a hill in Central North Tasmania, yet only 10 minutes drive to the main town, Ulverstone, and the many beaches!
The accommodation available is a studio room (the cabin!) with a kitchen area and your own separate bathroom. A cozy weekend getaway, with, I'm told, the comfiest queen bed!!!
A choice of cotton sheets or flannelette are available. Flannelette is great for that extra 'coziness' when it's cold outside!
Warm as toast on the inside with a wall heater, electric blankets AND two hot water bottles - the last two of which you won't need but might just like to have the option to use :) There is a pedestal fan available to keep cool with on those warm days.
I have designated this accommodation for two people only, however, babies and pre-toddlers in their own porta-cots are also very welcome :)
The Powerhouse Studio @ Eagles Rise is now available on a separate listing.
There are some dvds available for your use, as well as some well loved board games!
A bath seat also available, should someone need it for an easier shower if necessary.
The cabin is attached to the main house with a separate hallway in between. The West facing sliding doors out to the carport which will be your main entryway. All windows in the cabin are double glazed and fly screened. Very cozy!!
A washing machine is also available for use.
There is also a little private garden on the Eastern side of the house, where you can have your morning coffee, or dine under the stars. There is a Weber BBQ there also available for your use.
When you don't feel like cooking, you can have Pizza delivered to your door by the Red Grasshopper in town! There is also Pedros for fish and chips - takeaway or the Pedros restaurant on the water, Jade Willow for a delicious Chinese meal and Pier 01 restaurant and bar for a great place to sit and eat on the Ulverstone Wharf, as well as many others!
A picnic backpack is also available, should you wish to go somewhere for a picnic.
The property is on 35 acres in a rural area, with many tourist attractions nearby, such as Leven Canyon, Gunns Plains Caves, Wings Wildlife Park (Tasmania's largest wildlife/animal park) and Cradle Mountain is only 82 kilometres away.
It's a great spot to base yourself whilst traveling around this area of Tasmania, or even if you are just breezing through!
Being in a pocket of many creative cottage industries, there is a myriad of art galleries to explore, as well as antique stores and lots of little cafes to relax in and drink excellent coffee! Penguin beach is only 15 minutes away, where there is a large Sunday market to browse. The well renowned 'Wild' restaurant that was in Penguin, is now Mrs Jones and based in Devonport. Book ahead!
The nearest airport is Devonport Airport, 30 minutes drive from the house. Devonport harbour, where the Spirit of Tasmania comes in from Melbourne, is only 25 minutes. A flight from Melbourne to Devonport is around one hour. Launceston Airport is an hour and a half drive away and to Hobart from Eagles Rise, it is around a three and a half to four hours drive.

Yay! Finally have internet access here too! :)
There is a private guest garden, with a picnic bench, table and chairs and the barbeque :)
When I am here, I am as visible or invisible as my guests require :) I had one couple, newly weds, that I didn't see for four days!!! :) And I've had long and lovely chats with others, sitting watching the sunset during cocktail hour! :)
To be sensitive to the needs of my guests is important to me, and even when I am away, I am always accessible, as well as having someone looking after the place for me in my absence.
I love my neighbourhood because of the people in it and the marvellous views that surround me up here.Any neighbour that you might knock on the door asking for help, will be there for you.
The local Gawler General Store on Gawler Road is definitely one of those! Ian and Susan are friends and two of the most helpful and kind people I know. They are at 170 Gawler Road, on your way up here and open from 7am to 7pm. Petrol is available there too, along with yummy snacks and coffee :)
No public transport, except the school bus in the morning! You wanted to 'get away' didn't you?!
There are taxi cabs from Devonport airport that can bring you up here, but I would suggest a hire car if you don't have your own, so that you can visit all there is to see around here.
Come to relax, enjoy 'you' in the peaceful place that is Eagles Rise and delight in all that is around you :)
If you have other friends or family traveling with you, 'The Powerhouse @ Eagles Rise' studio is now completed! It is primarily set up as a photographic studio, but has all the accommodation needs and is set it up on Airbnb currently. I also have two caravans that are great for the kids! Once completed, they will be listed as 'Eagles Rise Caravans'.
I look forward to meeting you!
A cleaning fee of $25 is added to the total of your stay for Caroline, who does a wonderful job in getting the accommodation ready for your stay :)
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A MINIMUM STAY OF 2 NIGHTS
Thank you :)
