Righto then. I’ve made an epic decision. Writing about Frenchman’s River in one go is just too overwhelming. I simply cannot condense everything I think you’d like to know, into one manageable article. So herewith find a few bite-sized snippets about The Writer’s House.

Who Should Stay at The Writer’s House?

I don’t think there’s anyone who would NOT like to stay at The Writer’s House in Cygnet; it’s such a dream. Co-owner Andrew Blaxland designed the accommodation, and has won awards for his efforts. It’s cosy and luxurious all rolled into one, and we wanted to change the locks and stay indefinitely.

These travel-types would find this place in southern Tasmania a perfect fit…

The Bookworm

Fellow owner and successful author Posie Graeme-Evans wrote some of her books while based at The Writer’s House in Cygnet. You could be inspired with your own literary genius too. Or if that’s beyond your aspirations, you’ll find a library jam-packed with good reads. There’s even a selection of videos.

The Foodie

The Writer’s House has a second collection of titles… cookbooks to impress even the most serious foodie. The kitchen has all the right equipment; the pantry is stocked with staples and Posie and Andrew supply a generous amount of gourmet delights to kick off your stay. If cooking is not your thing, Cygnet has a wealth of cafe options, so you can let someone else prepare your feast.

The Romantic

Frenchman’s River just took home the gong for “romantic holidays” with accommodation booking website, Stayz. The award was technically for sister property The Helmsman’s House but The Writer’s House is equally romanced-up with a log fire, plenty of fresh flowers and mood lighting. What more could you want?

The Tourist

Have you ever wanted to explore southern Tasmania without roaring around during a day-trip from Hobart? I tell you, there’s so much to see in the Huon Valley/D’Entrecasteaux Channel region. The ferry for Bruny Island is a mere skip away from The Writer’s House, not to mention Dover, Cockle Creek, Huonville and Geeveston. Just do it.
