Vanson's in the Valley

Bedrooms 2
Property type hotel


About the property

Vanson's in the Valley is a new, modern,contemporary alternative to the B & B market in the Huon Valley. Our rural retreat, nestled high in the hills surrounded by virgin blue gum forest, offers breathtaking views overlooking the stunning Huon River.

Upon your arrival afternoon tea will be served .... hmm warm scones fresh from the oven.

We offer the peace and quiet of the country with gorgeous views from your room and living area. The perfect place to retreat to after exploring the many attractions and features of the Huon Valley and beyond. For those who truly wish to unwind, simply relax and take in the views and sounds of the valley from our gardens. It's a bird watchers paradise and the lucky ones will spot one of the two resident wedge tailed eagles that frequent the skies above.

Attractions in the Valley

The small historic town of Franklin situated on the Huon River in the famous Huon Valley, celebrated it's 175th anniversary in 2011 and is well known as a retreat for city dwellers as well as a must see destination for interstate visitors and travellers. We are located 1km south of the Franklin township.

The Huon Valley area is famous for its fresh food production, vineyards and aquaculture products. Why not try some of the fresh products on offer either directly from the producers or at one of the restaurants and cafes along the way... many of which feature local produce in their menus.

Places to visit include: Hastings Cave and Thermal Springs, Hartz Mountains National Park, Wooden Boat Centre, Tahune Airwalk, Ida Bay Historic Railway and many farm gate producers, cafes, restaurants and vineyards.

Gourmet Breakfast

Vanson's in the Valley offers a choice of gourmet breakfasts using as many Tasmanian products as possible. We grow lots of our own vegetables and raise very contented, some would call spoilt, chickens who provide us with the best eggs in town. We offer homemade jams and bread, a selection of seasonal fruits and locally caught salmon.

Choose from continental, bacon and eggs Vanson style or savory salmon scrambles. Fruit juice and freshly brewed coffee and tea of your choice is always available.

Great accomm, amazing views, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay, the accommodation is lovely with fantastic views of the river in a beautiful setting. The hosts were welcoming, we especially loved the night star gazing by the warm chimenia on the back deck after being treated to home brewed award winning cider and craft beer! We loved staying here, meeting the animals and strolling through the gardens. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This place is my top pic for a Tassie getaway. My husband and I just spent 3 nights at Vanson's in the Valley, it was our second stay, and there was no question of returning.

It is a beautiful, spacious and modern home away from home with stunning views. It is so easy to just spend a day relaxing In the garden watching the chickens or the sheep or even just listening to the birds. If you are up early enough you will see the little wallabies too.

We particularly like that you aren't restricted to a room but virtually have a whole apartment to yourself.

Thank you so much Janet and Tony

We'll see you next time.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Janet's property. The views were excellent and well worth setting the alarm to get up a little earlier to watch the sunrise. Janet was very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and brought to us each morning. We spent time admiring the veggie patch and surrounding scenery.
