Last minute booking to the Blue Lake Ridge and not sure what to expect. And what a last minute find! From the moment we arrived John and Rob made us feel welcome and if you want to stay in a place that you will never forget this is it! Great food, company and watching the wallaby’s eat at their own bar was wonderful!

Amazing views, aroma of tree pines and the most peaceful and tranquil place that you will find hard to beat. If your visiting Tasmania then please take time out to visit this accommodation.

Be prepared for the possum’s running along the deck outside your room during the night and try a spot of fishing on the lake

A piece of luxury by a lake and one for the memory books!

We had a fantastic one night stopover at the Blue Lake Lodge while circling back to Hobart after a road trip up the East Coast. The Central Highlands of Tasmania don't often make it into short tourist road trips, but are well worth a visit and provide some stunning wild and isolated scenery. The Lodge itself is beautifully situated on the edge of Arthur's Lake, with comfortable rooms and a lovely communal area with huge sofas, a roaring fire and beautiful views. John was a very welcoming host, and a fantastic chef! We are very glad that we ventured this way and would certainly recommend doing so to others.

3 guest rooms enable a personable experience. Meals freshly cooked, delicious and satisfying (no "sous vide" here!!).
Lakeside location 2km from the main road which are peaceful.
Hosts learned with their world travels, skills and business acumen - great company of all guests and our lovely hosts: Rob, John and Janina!

Room Tip: The 3 guest rooms have the same amenities and view.

Coming from Western Australia with 13 year old son to visit my Mum he decided he wanted a fishing adventure!! Booked a night at Blue Lake Lodge at Arthurs Lake and WOW what an amazing two days we had!!

I had great expectations and we definitely weren't disappointed. A beautiful drive and then there we were!! Absolutely stunning!!!

Straight down to the lake and fishing rods supplied out they went! Incredible surroundings & just picturesque scenery - just divine!!

Champs & nibbles on the lake and then Oscar pulled in his first trout - yay!! Superbly filleted by Robert (the Most accommodating Manager ever) & served as a canapé - scrumptious!!

The Lodge is divine with comfy couches, huge fire, gourmet dining, gorgeous bedrooms with ensuites & the attention to detail is perfect!

If we didn't have to fly home we would definitely have stayed a second or third night. Absolutely loved it and could not recommend it enough. ❤❤

Booked in for a single night, we were much later arriving than planned and our co-hosts, John and Robert, 'believed in us' and waited around in order to prepare a superb dinner for us. Being late and dark outside we could see little of the beautiful natural surroundings and superb lake view that awaited us the following morning.
The Lodge concept, where you can watch the hosts prepare the food for your enjoyment and talk to them at the same time, works very well and immediate everyone can relax and enjoy the company.
The lounge area is snug bringing a long day to a perfect close with its open fire and comfortable furniture.
The guest room had an extremely high quality bed with all the fixtures and fittings to a high standard. And the level of cleanliness also very high. The view from the room to the lake has to be seen to be believed.
Whilst eating our breakfast we were able to watch some of the local residents enjoying breakfast at the unique Wallaby Bar.
Highly recommended!
