The Duck House is actually one of three options on this seaside corner of Burnie. I managed to book Amelias, and could not have been happier with this charming old world home that you will have to yourself. The accomodation is only bested by the wonderful hosts, and Lyn was great with communication and help. This will be my go-to from herein for any stay in Burnie

What a wonderful welcome and stay at the well-named Duck House! Our hosts were delightful and we could want for more by way of breakfast food in the fridge/cupboard. Even a few herbs from the garden were offered. Very comfortable house and quite reasonable cost And thanks, Lynne for finding and returning the missing part of my specs. Will def return next time we’re in Tassie.

We love Amelia's which is a larger cottage around the corner from the original Duck House. The house is beautifully furnished and the bed very comfortable. The host, Tich, is very welcoming as always. We enjoyed our breakfast in the morning and I appreciate the lovely Twinings teas which are my favourite teas! You will pay $140 for 1 person and $40 extra for each other person. Don't forget your shampoo as there is only soap in the bathroom.

Thanks so much for this lovely review. We very much appreciate the feedback. Our breakfast supplies are as local and fresh as we can make them but we share your opinion of Twinings teas. Given the lack of a tea industry in Tasmania we feel we can supply them without guilt. Glad you love them They'll be ready for you on your next visit. Tich and Lynne

We loved Duck House! It's a beautifully appointed heritage cottage, walking distance to the penguins and The Makers Workshop. Itch was a friendly and knowledgable host; nothing was too much trouble. The kitchen boasts a small dishwasher and a washing machine, which is a real bonus! Breakfast makings are provided so you can start your day well nourished. The house is full of fun 'duck' embellishments and other items that reflect the history of the house. I found I felt very much at home here, and it was hard to leave! Highly recommended for your next stay in Burnie.

The duck house is a house with its own narrative but the story spreads into the market garden in back where guests are invited to help themselves to fresh garden produce. The breakfast and general catering are on point. I found the attention to little detail commendable and the willingness of the hosts to ensure that the stay was as expected makes this one stand out for us Thank you very much
