Just 7 minutes from restaurants and magnificent wineries. We are situated 30 minutes from Hobart.

Perfect for four adults or a teenage family staying in the 80 square meter “Loft” or just a romantic stay for two in “The Heritage Apartment”on the ground floor or add the “Wisteria Suite” and  the Heritage Apartment becomes a two bedroom two bathroom apartment.

“Warmest welcome we’ve ever received”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 26 July 2012

“Anna and Garry are the perfect hosts at this lovely, laid back and q-u-i-e-t spot in the stunning Huon Valley area. It is a retreat in the truest sense of the word, with birds, marsupials and the rushing water of the river the only interruptions to the solitude. We deeply regretted jamming so many activities into our brief stay here in The Loft, as it meant we only came back late at night for sleeping before setting off early the next morning each day. If we stay again, we will schedule time simply to sit and enjoy the peace. And we may never leave!”

Wood fired central heating and open fire creates a warm and cozy environment inside.

Tucked in under a mountain called Sleeping Beauty (you’ll see why when you get here) , Crabtree is at the entrance to the lush and fertile Huon Valley. The valley is named after the French explorer Huon de Kermadec who in the late 18th century charted the waters of southern Tasmania.

The Loft is a very large yet intimate apartment which caters to up to four adults in a Queen King configuration. The large deck overlooking Sleeping Beauty and Crabtree River and farm land beyond has a six place outdoor dining setting and a BBQ.

Stay in the Heritage Apartment, a fully self-contained apartment located separately in Crabtree House in private surrounds, a heritage listed historic home built in 1840 at beautiful Grove, the gateway to Tasmania’s magnificent Huon Valley.

The Heritage Apartment is designed for couples only. Not suitable for children.

This truly gives you the Huon Valley experience with self-contained cottages and the freedom to eat your breakfast in your own dining room at the time you wish. If you wish to cook dinner you can.

    Stayed at The Loft here and loved the quietness and tranquility. Lovely loft style apartment, and well appointed. Very cosy and welcoming. Great comfy bed ! Huge bathroom!
