Natural Habitat Adventures

Truffle Lodge

Location
Gretna, Tasmania, Australia

Described as a “5-star hotel under canvas, “ Truffle Lodge offers guests a peaceful, unhurried experience in nature. Surrounded by farm country and wild bush, the lodge shares space with wildlife, including resident platypus and charming marsupials that appear at dusk. Styled like a bush safari camp, with vintage atmosphere and contemporary comfort, the lodge enjoys an incomparable setting on the banks of the Derwent River with a view of the mountains beyond. Its name comes from the terrain on which it is built: one of Australia’s first truffieres — a plot of land cultivated to produce truffles.

Guests stay in individual safari tents, but “tent” belies the true nature of these elegant accommodations, which are spacious suites (870 square feet) with rustic ambience captured in wood plank floors, wicker trunks and furnishings made of leather and recycled wood. In your en suite bath, refresh under a rain shower or soak in the deep wooden tub, then sink into your luxurious deep bed—rooms have one king or two singles. Designed deliberately for an unplugged escape, tents do not have televisions or Wi-Fi (though you can connect to the Internet at the main lodge). Instead, take in the serene river view from the hammock or rocking chair on your private deck—your tent is meant to be a personal sanctuary during your stay.

Tents are connected by boardwalk to The Lodge, comprised of three large farm-style sheds joined by wrap-around decks. It’s a casual communal space for sharing meals, enjoying a drink overlooking the river, or lounging in front of the fireplace. True to the old-school vibe, you’ll find games and puzzles, books and magazines, and an old-fashioned record player with a collection of original 1960s LPs. Table tennis is also available on the canopy-covered deck. In keeping with its bush camp theme, Truffle Lodge offers simple, rustic comfort food accompanied by Tasmanian world-class wines and artisan beers and ciders. Breakfast is self-serve continental-style while dinners are a set menu (though some dietary preferences can be accommodated with advance notice).
