Black Bluff View Retreat – a large comfortable 4 bedroom house on 40 hectares.

“Our stay at Black Bluff View Retreat was the highlight of our five week trip to some of the most beautiful and scenic places in Tasmania. The host “Basil” greeted us at the start of our stay and gave us a tour of the house and provided us with many helpful tips about the area. The house itself was very spacious and comfortable with every possible amenity. There was a great fireplace that kept the whole house warm. Every window had an amazing view of the mountains and forest and we enjoyed being able to see the Milky Way whilst in bed. The beds were very comfortable. The garden was well cared for and surrounded by beautiful trees. This was a luxurious stay in an enviable part of the world 30 min from Leven Canyon walking tracks, 15 mins from wineries, beaches, berry, cherry farms, and wildlife park and about an hour away from Cradle Mountain. This really was a place that had everything. It truly exceeded our expectations and was a great place to end our trip. We hope to come back and stay here again one day soon so we can tackle some of the multi-day treks in the area.”  Rebecca, January 2021.

“We just wanted to say a huge and heartfelt thank you for your wonderful hospitality. You have such a wonderful place and we’ve had such a great time.

“Thank you so much for having us stay. You have such a beautiful place and made it very welcoming. We will be back for sure.” Johnno and family, January 2021.

“We had a truly wonderful time staying at Black Bluff View Retreat recently. It is a great house, with enough space for the extended family and full of all the mod cons that you could possible want. However its real appeal is the setting – amazing views from the bedrooms and both the inside and the outside entertaining areas out over the valleys of bush right on your doorstop, and the kids loved the chance to explore and spot the local wildlife. However, it is Paul (Basil) that makes this spot so rewarding. He is full of local knowledge and invaluable tips on things to do and spaces to go and is always willing to share his love for and passion of this part of Tasmania. We cannot recommend Black Bluff View Retreat highly enough and will certainly be back for another stay next time we are in Tasmania.” Lachlan February 2021
