Combine a love of books and ideas with the beauty of southern Tasmania at Library House. Their philosophy is a simple one – to provide for each traveller from near and far a perfect home away from home. Ranked as one of Australia’s top five getaways by Virgin in 2014, Library House is the ultimate in boutique Tasmanian luxury. Stayz Awards named it the best indulgence accommodation in Tasmania for 2014.
Located in the picturesque hills of West Hobart, this welcoming home offers up a superb design that seamlessly blends its Federation roots with a modern extension to showcase breathtaking panoramic views of the River Derwent. Built in 1900, the house features a fully appointed gourmet kitchen/dining room with open plan living, a media room with open fireplace, five bedrooms and, as the name suggests, a library filled with a collection of titles for you to enjoy during your stay.
Library House is a retreat from your hectic schedule in the midst of a Tasmanian adventure. For the owners it is an opportunity to showcase the very best that this island at World’s End has to offer. They pride themselves on enhancing the Tasmanian experience for each guest, whether from Australia or abroad. It’s a place to sink back in the lounge in the library after a long day’s adventure and reflect on the beauty of this Island – with a favourite book in one hand and a glass of Tasmanian pinot in the other.
