Entry into the Cottage is via a sheltered sun room which houses the firewood stock and gas barbecue. The Cottage is fully detached , with a grassy garden between it and Airey Drive. Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire property, apart from the adjoining garage. Interaction with GuestsIrene Grey, the manager lives next door and is available as needed to solve any problems The NeighborhoodEXPERIENCE- being sandwiched between the rugged West Coast and the Tarkine- The Arthur River Village is unique for its position on the edge of the Tarkine Forest, right on the rugged West Coast, as it is the only easily accessed Tasmanian West Coast settlement that is right on the shores of the Southern Ocean. It straddles the mouth of the wild and undammed Arthur River, which traverses the Tarkine Forest. Arthur River is a very popular holiday destination for Tasmanians who are in the know. SEE WILDLIFE all around you- The Village is surrounded by the extensive Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, which encompasses the Tarkine Forest and it teems with wildlife. The animals treat the Village as part of their home. Wombats have burrows in many places within the Village and, along with wallabies, are seen frequently. Spotted quolls and Tasmanian devils live within or walk through the village and are most likely to be seen at night. GREAT FISHING at a little known but excellent destination- Apart from people living on the North and West Coasts of Tasmania, the Arthur River area is little known for its fishing. It is, in fact, a great destination for the fisherman, as there are trout in the river and good rock and beach fishing. SURF AND WAVE-SAIL at a Mecca for these sports- The coast just north of Arthur River is famed for its surf, so that each year there are major national surf and wave-sailing events, which usually centre on Green’s Beach, near Marrawah. EXPLORE THE COAST around- The wild coast of sweeping beaches, rocky outcrops and coves on either side of the Arthur River mouth is easily reached on foot from the village. More distant parts of the coastline to both south and north can be accessed at multiple points by road. BOAT UP THE RIVER into the Tarkine- The magnificent Tarkine Forest can be visited by taking a boat up the Arthur River from the Village for up to 15km in a tinnie and much further in a canoe. You can bring your own vessel which you can launch into the river from the boat ramp just down the road. No boat? Then hire a boat or canoe in the village from the Boat Hire. If you do not want to be your own skipper, you can catch an Arthur River Cruise on the George Robinson, which runs up the river virtually every day, apart from mid-winter. This characterful boat leaves just across the river from the Lodge and takes you up to their private base in the forest for a barbecue. Book early- ph(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) . SO MUCH TO SEE in the area around- There are many other attractions within a 100km radius, including pretty, historic Stanley, with its historic Highfield House, the Nut and its tours to a seal colony; the Tarkine Forest Experience at Dismal Swamp; the huge dairy and wind farm at Woolnorth, right on the top left corner of Tasmania; the Dip Falls Forestry Reserve and the Tarkine Forest Reserves at Julius River, Lake Chisholm, Milkshake Hills and the Wes Baker Falls, now accessible from Arthur River Village by a fully sealed road loop, the Tarkine Drive. INCLUDE ARTHUR RIVER in your driving loop around Tasmania- The Western Explorer Road, which turns right off the Tarkine Drive after it has turned inland at Couta Rocks (well sign-posted), is a great way of heading south to the lower Tasmanian west coast and, in due course, to Hobart. This road is predominantly gravel, but is suitable for an ordinary 2 wheel drive car, driven with care, as it is well-maintained. The road first traverses heathland and then forest to reach Corinna, on the Pieman River. Corinna is a charming, historic place on the north bank of the river, with one provider of accommodation and camping, limited food shopping, but a surprisingly large bar and restaurant (see (URL HIDDEN) You can cross the Pieman River on the privately-owned barge (limited hours, 9.00 am to 7.00 pm in summer) to reach Zeehan and other points on the more southern parts of the West Coast and, of course, Hobart. The road south of the Pieman River is all sealed. Make sure you have plenty of fuel in your tank. The first fuel pump is at Zeehan. The recently upgraded main road that enters Arthur River from the north is well-engineered and sealed. The scenic Western Explorer Road continues south from Arthur River to beautiful, serene and historic Corinna, from where it is easy to reach Strahan and all of Southern Tasmania, so that it is possible to do a loop around much of the Tasmanian coast. The Western Explorer has been mainly dirt, but a significant length of the road that leads south from the Village is newly sealed. The sections of dirt that remain are well-maintained and suitable for an ordinary 2 wheel drive car, driven carefully. Availability Minimum Stay: 1 night View Calendar No Reviews Yet Stay here and you could give this host their first review! Getting AroundAs there are no public transport services to Arthur River Village, you will need to drive yourself there. Please note that motor vehicle fuel is not available in Arthur River Village. The nearest fuel bowser is 15 km away at the Marrawah shop. Other Things to NoteBASE RENTAL INCLUDES- Two adults and one child. Each additional adult $30 and child $15 CHILD FRIENDLY facilities- We aim to make the Cottage as child friendly as possible. The relatively large and mainly grassy, but quite steep-banked garden is well fenced and the gate at the entrance to the garden from Airey Street can be closed to stop small children from wandering. A high chair and cot (with linen) are available on request at no extra cost. When small children are among our guests, we advise against using the wood fire because it has surfaces that could cause burns, but the Cottage can be kept warm with the reverse cycle air conditioner. Dishes and eating utensils suitable for small children are provided PETS ARE WELCOME, but by prior arrangement- We appreciate how much pleasure people get from bringing their pets on holiday with them, so we welcome these, provided you let us know in advance that you will be bringing one or two (no more than that), they are not permitted to sit on seats or beds, are not washed inside the Cottage, nor allowed to chase the wild life and you agree to pay a fee of $25 per stay to cover additional cleaning. SAFE, OFF-STREET PARKING is ample- There is space for parking of up to 3 cars within the garden of the Cottage, but none of this is under cover. It is also possible to park a boat on a trailer within the garden, with just enough space to turn the trailer around in the garden if the boat is no longer than 5 metres. Larger trailers can be driven along the drive into the garden from the street, but would need to be backed out into Airey Drive.

"We had a ‘BLAST' from the past listening to all the ‘Golden Oldies'. The girls especially loved the Tina Turner – Nutbush City Limits. We really loved our stay in this retro house, loved having the beach across the road. Did some fishing one night and Shauna caught a Banjo shark – she was so excited and did a dances on the beach (we let the shark go)!!. All in all great weekend. Thanks so much Angela." "Fabulous property! We really loved our stay... such a cool, groovy little place. That vinyl record collection was amazing!" "We are absolutely loving this place. The moment we walked in we felt like we had come home! So many nice touches everywhere. Loving the record collection, they are in such excellent condition, its been a real delight to listen to Joan Amatrading, Paul Simon and all the stuff that we listened to too many years ago and haven't listened to since. Really nice introducing our 20 year olds to some of the stuff we grew up with! The walks have been great too, up to Anniversary Bay and then Postman's walk. Thanks so much for everything. Hoping to come again one day." "Angela it's a wonderful cottage to be in. I love its history and the ambience. No suburban holiday rental with art from Target. I love your things and having hundreds of records myself that's been another pleasure and your fish trap with squid bait is out again in a last hopeful attempt for breakfast. Thanks heaps and very best wishes." "We ADORED this groovy little house, the kids became quite attached and were downright miserable to leave (umm, me too!). Cooking together while spinning the vinyl, early morning beach walks, late afternoon bush walks, swimming (and thanking the weather gods), barbecuing, catching up and making memories. Hooray for summer! Thanks Angela, and if you're ever thinking of selling SBH... we're a bit smitten". "We have really loved our stay @ your lovely Beach House. It has been a delight to take in all the wonderful touches you have provided, and the bed was fantastic! ... the best nights sleep Ive had in at least 10 years! We have added a couple of spoons to your collection. This psychedelic relic thanks you for sharing the albums, especially 'Ripper' and 'Peter Frampton Live'. Awesome." "We all LOVED this gorgeous house, inside and out. It has a great vibe. Lovely artworks, funky interior, comfy beds, great record collection ... charming flowering garden and big lawn. This is a beach house full of good times and memories. We didn't want to leave. And thanks Angela for your much valued list of local tips."

The NeighborhoodSTANLEY The historic town of Stanley sits on the tip of the peninsula that juts into Bass Strait in far North-Western Tasmania. The buildings of the town huddle under an ancient flat-topped rocky outcrop or volcanic plug called "The Nut". Take the path or the chairlift to the top of the 152 metre headland and enjoy wonderful views up and down the coast. Stanley was established in the early 1800s as the headquarters for the Van Dieman's Land Company which sought to establish a fine merino wool industry as well as grazing operations. Highfield Historic Site, just outside Stanley, includes the homestead built in 1837 for the company, together with workers' cottages, barns and stables. Stanley has been declared a historic town. In the wharf area are several historic buildings. In Marine Park is the former Van Diemen's Land Company Store, now @ VDL Stanley. In Alexander Terrace is the childhood home of Stanley's most famous son, Joseph Lyons, Australian Prime Minister from (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and the only Tasmanian to hold this office. The Discovery Centre Folk Museum is packed with displays relating to the area's history. There are several art and craft galleries in Stanley, showcasing the best of Tasmanian art and craft. The Nut is a State Reserve and is a haven for migratory birds such as shearwaters and orange bellied parrots, as well as kestrels, falcons and small colonies of fairy penguins. The best time to see the fairy penguins is in the early evening at dusk, when the little birds return to their burrows after a day at sea. Seals can also be seen in the waters off the Nut. Stanley Seaquarium on Fisherman's Dock has a wide variety of Tasmanian sealife on display. Getting Around@ VDL Stanley is located within walking distance of all the attractions and restaurants in Stanley. If you want to explore the surrounding areas a car is essential in your planning as public transport is very limited.

The floor plan in the photos section shows how the apartments communicate internally to make a single property that accommodates up to 12 people. For details of the DOWNSTREAM APARTMENT, go to "Ocean, Surf, River and Bush!" A SPECIAL SETTING IN A SPECIAL PLACE- Few holiday rental properties can rival the combination of the position of the Lodge and its high quality accommodation. The Riverfront and Sea Lodge occupies a very privileged sunny, absolute riverfront position on the south bank of the river, just upstream of where the Arthur River flows into the sea. AN ELEGANT, UNUSUAL BUILDING ECHOING ITS ORIGINS- The building is also special because it is one of a kind, being adapted from the original floor plan of the sprawling family “shack” that it was before its major adaptation and rebuild during 2007. The design showcases the views of the river and sea from within. The décor is clean and modern. THE HUGE MAIN ROOM IS ANOTHER SPECIAL FEATURE- This 6.5x11 metre room has a lofty ceiling with interesting angles. There are two sitting areas, one of which has a large flat screen television and the other centres around the wood stove. This room includes a large kitchen which is well-equipped with a full-size stove, microwave and dishwasher. The spacious dining area looks out over the river and the surf at the river mouth. The less central of the 2 living areas has the TV which is connected to a satellite feed and there is a DVD player. ALL THREE BEDROOMS HAVE FITTED CARPETS AND WARDROBES- One has a queen bed, the second a double and the smallest bedroom has 2 bunk beds. The foldout couch queen bed in the main room living area which has the television can accommodate another 2 people. THE BATHROOM IS SPACIOUS AND MODERN- This includes a large vanity unit, a small shower/bath and a WC. The separate laundry has a second WC. HEATED THROUGHOUT IN FOUR WAYS- The sun warms the main room. In its absence, you can choose between the charm of a slow combustion wood stove (wood provided) or the reverse cycle air conditioner. Bedrooms have thermostatically controlled child-safe electrical panel heaters. EVERYTHING YOU NEED, APART FROM FOOD/PERSONAL ITEMS- We aim to provide everything that you will need during your holiday, to cover those important components of a holiday: cooking, eating, drinking, washing, social contacts, sitting outside, enjoying nature, being warm and sleeping. All linen and bedding are provided and an iron, ironing board and hairdryer are supplied. The kitchen is completely equipped with a full size oven and cook top, a large fridge, a microwave oven and dishwasher. The TV has a satellite feed and there is a DVD player and sound system. The separate laundry has a tub, clothes washing machine and tumble dryer, A CHILD FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT- High chairs and cots (with linen) are available on request at no extra cost. There are plates and cutlery suitable for small children. The good laundry facilities help reduce the effort required to deal with those rapidly increasing piles of little peoples’ dirty clothes. The extensive lawn between the building and the river is fenced off, with a swimming pool-type lock on the gate that leads to the river bank and gates on access to the street, so that this area is safe for small children. For older children, there is plenty of space for them to roam safely around the village and shoreline. The nearest sandy beach is calm and sheltered and only 200 metres away, at the end of Gardiner Street. RELAX OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO- There is a sheltered wide patio with a large outside table for each apartment on the north side of the house that faces the river and sea. The patio can be shaded with the Lodge's market umbrellas. This is a great spot for using the Upstream apartment's mobile gas-fired barbecue. Guest AccessThe gently sloping lawn between the house and river is shared between the two apartments. The carport is reserved for guests in the Downstream apartment when this is occupied. There is ample parking space by the entrance to the Upstream Apartment. The large shed is not available for use by guests. The river bank is easily reached beyond the fenced area and is suitable for mooring small boats or canoes. Interaction with GuestsI am readily available to help guests with any problems that might arise. My contact details are given in the guest information folder which is updated regularly and contains much useful information about the Lodge, Arthur River Village and its surroundings. The NeighborhoodEXPERIENCE THE REALLY WILD TASMANIA- You will be sandwiched between the wild, virtually deserted coast and the Tarkine Forest, thanks to the unique position of the Arthur River Village, right on the rugged West Coast. Arthur River Village is is the only easily accessed Tasmanian West Coast settlement that is right on the shores of the Southern Ocean. It straddles the mouth of the wild and undammed Arthur River, which traverses the Tarkine Forest. Arthur River is a very popular holiday destination for Tasmanians who are in the know. SEE WILDLIFE ALL AROUND YOU- The Village is surrounded by the extensive Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, which encompasses the Tarkine Forest. This area teems with wildlife and the animals treat the Village as part of their home. Wombats have burrows in many places within the Village and, along with wallabies, are seen frequently. One wombat inhabits the storm water drain that runs on the eastern side of the Lodge land from Gardiner Street to the river. Spotted quolls and Tasmanian devils live within or walk through the village and are most likely to be seen at night. GREAT FISHING AT A LITTLE KNOWN DESTINATION- Apart from people living on the North and West Coasts of Tasmania, the Arthur River area is little known for its fishing. It is, in fact, a great destination for the fisherman, as there are trout in the river and good rock and beach fishing. SURF AND WAVE-SAIL AT A MECCA FOR THESE SPORTS- The coast just north of Arthur River is famed for its surf, on a variety of breaks. Each year there are major national surf and wave-sailing events, which usually centre on Green’s Beach, near Marrawah, 15 km away. EXPLORE THE COAST AROUND- The wild coast of sweeping beaches, rocky outcrops and coves on either side of the Arthur River mouth is easily reached on foot from the village. More distant parts of the coastline to both south and north can be accessed at multiple points by road. BOAT UP THE RIVER INTO THE TARKINE- The magnificent Tarkine Forest can be visited by taking a boat up the Arthur River from the Village for up to 15km in a tinnie and much further in a canoe. You can bring your own vessel which you can launch into the river from the boat ramp just down the road, then keep it at the riverbank in front of the Lodge. No boat? Then hire a boat or canoe in the village from the Boat Hire. If you do not want to be your own skipper, you can catch an Arthur River Cruise on the George Robinson, which runs up the river virtually every day, apart from mid-winter. This cruise stops deep in the forest for a barbecue and conducted walk through the forest. This characterful boat leaves just across the river from the Lodge. Book early. SO MUCH TO SEE IN THE AREA AROUND- There are many other attractions within a 100km radius, including pretty, historic Stanley, which offers tours of Highfield House and boat trips to a seal colony. You can climb the Nut, which is a volcanic plug that looms above Stanley. The faint-hearted can catch the chair lift. Other attractions are the Tarkine Forest Experience at Dismal Swamp, on the road to Smithton; the huge dairy and wind farm at Woolnorth, right on the top left corner of Tasmania; the Dip Falls Forestry Reserve and the Tarkine Forest Reserves at Julius River, Lake Chisholm, Milkshake Hills and the Wes Baker Falls. These areas are now easily accessed from Arthur River Village by a fully sealed road loop, the Tarkine Drive. INCLUDE ARTHUR RIVER IN YOUR DRIVING LOOP AROUND TASMANIA- The first section of the Western Explorer Road heads south from Arthur River Village for 15km, running close to the coast. This is also part of the Tarkine Drive and this section was sealed recently. The Explorer turns right off the Tarkine Drive after it has turned inland at Couta Rocks. This is a great way for heading south to the lower Tasmanian west coast and, in due course, to Hobart. Beyond the Tarkine Drive, the Western Explorer is predominantly gravel as far as Corinna, but it is suitable for an ordinary 2 wheel drive car, driven with care, as it is well-maintained. The road first traverses open heathland and then forest to reach Corinna, on the Pieman River. Corinna is a charming, historic place on the north bank of the river, with one provider of accommodation and camping. There is a small food shop, but a surprisingly large bar and restaurant. You can cross the Pieman River on the "Fatman", a privately-owned barge (limited hours, 9.00 am to 7.00 pm in summer) to reach Zeehan, Strahan and other points on the more southern parts of the West Coast and, of course, Hobart. The road south of the Pieman River is all sealed. Make sure you have plenty of fuel in your tank. The first fuel pump is at Zeehan. Getting AroundAs there are no public transport services to Arthur River Village, you will need to drive yourself there. Please note that motor vehicle fuel is not available in Arthur River Village. The nearest fuel bowser is 15 km away at the Marrawah shop. Other Things to NotePETS ARE WELCOME, BUT BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT- We appreciate the pleasure people get from bringing their pets on holiday with them, so we welcome these, provided you let us know in advance that you will be bringing one or two pets (no more than that). Pets must not sit or lie on seats or beds, nor be washed inside the Lodge and be restrained from chasing the wild life. if you bring a pet, you are required to pay a fee of $25 per stay to cover additional cleaning. SAFE, OFF-STREET PARKING- There is ample space for boat and vehicle parking.
