Carlton River B&B - Hobart's best bed and breakfast

This weekend while we were in Tassie for Linda's baptism (see above post) we had one of our best lodging experiences ever!
Jenny and I decided to go for a B&B in the country. What we found was absolute magic! We can't imagine a more romantic get away. The host couple were wonderful people and provided delicious breakfasts each morning.
We had a very nice room with ensuite and the common area was very comfortable with stunning views of the Carlton river.
Have a look at the pics, and if you ever go to Hobart . . . now you know where to stay!

The two nights, for the two of us with breakfasts was only $240. Absolutely amazing!

We got the camera out and took a few dozen photos on the two mornings we were there.
The river has so much character with it's rocky shore, treelined verge and grassy hills.
It was such a beautiful location with riverviews that always include Tasmania's regal black geese. Here, also, you can see the neighbours (across the river) sheep having their morning graze. Just moments later they all wandered up the hill and down the other side.

Sunday morning I rose early and waited for the sun to peek over the hills. What a reward awaited me!

This photo was Jenny's inspired creation. The windmill and agapanthas are in the front yard of the B&B.
