“Awesome!”

What a place to unwind! The Boat Shed is simplicity itself. What more do you need than the deck to muse about the world elsewhere with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot Noir and King Island Cheese?
Waking up each morning from the bed to the view of Mortimer Bay and across the Derwent to Mount Wellington was simply devine.
If you want a peaceful location with only nature as your neighbour this is the place

“Peace & Tranquility”

The Boat Shed is in an idyllic, peaceful setting an easy drive from Hobart. It is fully self contained with all facilities you require. When we arrived there was a welcome selection of provisions. Our host, Judy, faultlessly managed our booking and payment and made us feel very welcome.
If you're looking for tranquility, great facilities and magnificent views across Mortimer Bay and the Derwent towards Hobart & Mt. Wellington, then this is the place for you.

“Perfect start to our Tasmania getaway”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Delightful place to stay, so peaceful and quiet. The views of Hobart and Mt Wellington are stunning. Moonlight on the water is unforgettable. The Boat Shed is well appointed and very comfortable. Our hosts were gracious and friendly.

“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is extremely comfortable, quiet, yet a good base
for visiting many areas of southern Tasmania this is the best we have seen. Judy responded enthusiastically to all our needs. Nearby supermarket excellent, particularly for prepared foods. Highly recommended.
