The Duck House is a self-contained heritage bed and breakfast in Burnie, on Tasmania’s northwest coast.
The two-bedroom Duck House can accommodate up to five guests. The house is furnished in heritage-style, with antiques, memorabilia and brass and iron beds in the bedrooms. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and breakfast room, lounge and formal dining room and the bathroom has a claw foot bath and walk in shower. Provisions for a full English breakfast, including eggs, bacon and croissants, are supplied. Guests are invited to pick their own herbs and citrus from the rear garden.
The cottage is named for its original owners, Salvation Army Bill Duck and his wife Winifred. The late 19th century timber cottage is a minutes walk from the centre of Burnie, the beach, local park, art gallery, museum and walking tracks.
The Duck House shares a common garden with two other boutique cottages, Mrs Philpotts and Amelia’s, giving you the choice of three superb heritage properties. Find out more details on the operator’s own website.
