A forest retreat to suit couples, families or close friends. You can expect comfortable spacious accommodation with extensive use of glass and decking, Blue Gum Lodge makes the most of the beautiful sea views and the surrounding forest.
Blue Gum Lodge is set within 100 acres of its own private forest and is completely surrounded by native bush.
With a beautiful creek full of giant tree ferns, plenty of tracks through the forest and even a waterfall, there's plenty to explore right from the back door.
The native trees on the property are predominately Eucalyptus with the most common species being Blue Gum and Stringy Bark.
Turn on the outside lights at night, sit back on the deck and smile at the antics of the nocturnal Pademelons (a type of small Kanagaroo), Bennett's Wallabys & Brush-tailed Possums, Echidna, Owls, Wedge tailed Eagles, Bandicoot, amazingly all these animals are living around us every day.
The wildlife around the Lodge is relatively tame and come out and around the house most often at dusk and dawn.
Many of our guests have been truly enchanted by the Australian native wildlife seen at such close range, a unique Australian bush experience.
Blue Gum Lodge has been designed with peace and relaxation in mind.
There is a DVD/ TV for watching, or instead you could read a book while curled-up in front of the fire or listen to your favourite CD’s.
There is a large modern bathroom with an electric hot water heater, bathtub and a shower with majestic sea views. The open plan kitchen has all amenities from an old wood burning Aga to a modern electric oven and is fully equipped for self-catering.
All linen is of a high quality and includes feather down doonah’s, blankets, pillows and towels.
We have a caretaker who will be available if you call or need any help, but we do not interact with guests and offer complete privacy.
Night-time animal visits and day-time bird song, were an unforgettable part of this wonderful week.
Thank you for the opportunity to discover this wonderful part of Tasmania. Jacquiline & Phillip.
We both feel so relaxed, thank you for providing the perfect place to relax amongst the forest. Nik & Ilka
We would like guests to leave Blue Gum Lodge as neat and tidy as they found it, and to keep the front and back door closed so as to keep the wildlife outside where it belongs! :)
I am so happy to be sharing this special place with people, Blue Gum Lodge is a relaxing hideaway in the forest with expansive views down through Davis Gully to the ocean. It is so harmonius in its setting that we would love to turn into a health retreat, i will keep you posted on that front!
