Tucked amidst the sprawling greenery of Geeveston, Cambridge House is a historic Victorian home that has been transformed into a quaint and restful retreat. Guests will be pleasantly surprised to see the well-preserved exterior hiding a contrasting ryokan-style Japanese interior.
With a history dating back to 1870, Cambridge House is one of Geeveston’s oldest house establishments, featuring 5 charming accommodations, and located less than an hour from Hobart in the centre of the Huon Valley, a perfect base to explore the southwest of Hobart and Hartz Mountains National Park.
On top of being a peaceful retreat, Cambridge House is a destination worth travelling to, even if it is only for a sublime meal.
