Pumphouse Point is not your typical hotel stay. Located on Lake St Clair in Tasmania, surrounded by the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National park, you really feel like you could be anywhere, like you’ve stepped out of the real world into a landscape designed especially for your little getaway.
The history of the Pumphouse is an interesting one. Originally built in the 1930’s to pump water from Lake St Clair to Tarraleah Power Station , the five storey building has some tales to tell. Whilst it wasn’t a completely successful enterprise as a Pumphouse, having never being used for it’s intended purpose, it’s new found role as a destination hotel, is proving to be it’s greatest achievement.
The design, ambience and service at Pumphouse Point has been carefully created to give you a felling of cosy homeliness from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay. Beautifully decorated with all the creature comforts you can truly unwind and make the most of a night or two away from everything. And when I say everything, include the kids on that list. Pumphouse Point has a no children policy, it’s an adult escape from anything that needs looking after – you only have to think about yourself.
The rooms are stocked with a larder that will make your mouth water, beautiful local cheeses, pastes, cured meats… and just say the word, and some freshly baked bread will be delivered to your room to accompany the delicious produce on offer. Of, and of course there is a selection of wine you can help yourself to while your enjoying all of this – yep, heaven!
Dinner is served in the evening at a shared table where you have the opportunity to meet your neighbours at Pumphouse Point. The menu changes daily and is prepared from premium local produce and we can confirm that it is delicious.
If you are looking for a beautiful escape and complete wind down, this is an extraordinary experience. If you’d like more information, head to http://www.pumphousepoint.com.au
