When I looked at the map I thought we'd be driving awhile to get to Catherine Lodge Cottages from the Hobart airport. But Mick's website said 30 minutes and sure enough, 30 minutes later we arrived. The cottages are off a short dirt drive, which is off a longer road that connects to a 2-lane highway. We couldn't hear anything but horses and birds. There are two lovely, clean, quite new cottages set on either side of a spacious parking area. You can tell that Mick and his son put a lot of love and hard work into the building of these cottages. Each cottage has both front and back decks. The interior was comfy and kitchen stocked with milk, juice, fresh farm eggs, a loaf of freshly baked bread, homemade jam, coffee, tea, spices, dried pasta, and more. And you could actually cook in the kitchen! The stove's burners worked well as did the outdoor BBQ. Since the price was well below that of a couple of rooms at the pricier hotels in Hobart, we booked both cottages for 2 nights and had the entire place to ourselves. We ate dinner at the nearby RSL (5 minute drive) one night and had an excellent meal. What fun!! This is a perfect place for exploring the area, playing in the water, or spending a day exploring Hobart. Thanks Mick!
This place is not about money. It is just about you and your holiday. We have never been offered more for so little (winter special offer). The owners exceeded all our expectations and they were a shining example of Tassie hospitality we will never forget. Very early check in and very late check out were not a problem and at no extra cost. Kitchen was supplied with loads of food and beverages. Mick welcomed us before 8 am with home made jams, warm loaf of bread, butter, free range eggs, milk, juice and even cherry liqueur! We loved Mt Wellington view, sunsets were just stunning. Lovely BBQ area and fireplace in the living room. Comfy bedrooms. Mick was present whenever we needed, making us feel very special. We will be back and we would recommend Catherine Cottages to all who would like to spend some time to enjoy a beauty of southern Tassie. Thank You Mick and Eileen:)
