Thank you for providing such a superbly appointed and comfortable place to stay. Everything you could want for provided and nothing to do but sit back and relax and enjoy the fire and the views. We stay in a lot of B&Bs and we both agree — this one is in a class of it’s own!”

Thank you for being such an amazing host. Helmsman’s House is by far the most well appointed and beautiful place amongst all the luxurious accommodations I have stayed in all over the world; it is a true foodie and cook’s delight.

From the moment we arrived we felt instantly relaxed. The attention to detail is remarkable and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

WRITER's HOUSE Guest book

A few quotes from the guest book of the Writer’s House

Wow!! What a fantastic spot you have here. It was lightly snowing when we arrived but we left in bright sun having loved two warm and cosy days. So generous. Every comfort was catered for.
— Scot and Jo —
I found my bliss. Open fire, glass of red wine and a good book… Peace, calm, trees and views. A really beautiful place to stay and re-charge.
— Julie and Clive —
Your hospitality and attention to detail was sublime and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to stay.
— Breone and Braedon —
Stayed in many places, but this its best decked-out and supplied place ever. Beautifully done up, Posie and Andrew. Well done!
— Dave and Iris —
We’ve had such a wonderful time walking around the farm, riding around the bay and indulging in locally-made treats, all while soaking up the gorgeous views. What a way to celebrate turning 30

I’m in the industry of B&Bs and have to say I can’t fault what you’ve set up here : ) …the finish and quality is truly amazing. I love it!

We feel so lucky to have spent the first four nights of our honeymoon under your roof. And, we can’t get enough of the forest at the back! Evoked many memories of Blyton’s Enchanted Forest and whispering trees.
— Kelsey and Nick —
Andrew and I adored our stay here. We can’t wait to return. Next time… I hope to read one of your books, Posie! Thank you one hundred times…
— Rachael and Andrew —
… Beautiful interiors, lovely open fire and AMAZING views. We’ve also thoroughly enjoyed Cygnet, Mathew Evans’ Fat Pig Farm… and a great walk to Snug Falls.
— Greg and Justine —
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the ambience of The Writer’s House and the generosity of Posie and Andrew. We have come under the spell of Cygnet and the Huon Valley. Thanks for the tips for day trips, we did them all and then some…” PS not to forget the view, the view, the garden and the SKY!
— Lee-Ann and Martin —
