Schouten House is a heritage listed home, rich in history and a well-known landmark on Tasmania’s East Coast. Built in 1844 as an inn, it is one of the first substantial buildings to appear in Swansea when the township was being established around a military base on Waterloo Point.
Now a comfortable bed and breakfast offering traditional accommodation, and a warm welcome, it is an excellent place to call home while you explore the coast and Freycinet Peninsula, or just as a relaxing getaway.
Hearty cooked breakfasts, including options such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or our popular pancakes with maple syrup and bacon, are included for all guests.
Picnic hampers and wine and cheese platters are available by arrangement and are perfect for a ‘nothing to worry about’ break.
If you’re looking for quality restaurant style eating year round, Swansea also boasts some of the finest eateries you’ll find anywhere - check our website for links or ask us for recommendations.
If you like history, peace and good food, Swansea and Schouten House are well worth a visit.
