We had a 2 night stay in Strahan to visit the local attractions.
Our stay at Mcintosh cottages was very comfortable. The place is charming with all the modern conveniences includes.
Quiet location easily accessible.
Real nice fireplace well stocked with timber.

Our initial impression was a quaint cottage, the smelt very musty. The bedroom was by far the best room. While the kitchen was well equipped, we discovered that the stove didn't work after buying food to cook. While a contact mobile number was provided, this was of little use because only one provider (Telstra) has coverage. An emergency contact address would have helped. While the fireplace was welcome, we had to clean out the ashes and collect wood from the back yard shed.

Room tip: Find somewhere else

We have travelled quite a lot and this is the first place we have ever considered just leaving and paying for some where else instead.
We stayed in the two bedroom side, which faces South onto the road. Although we stayed in summer, we found it to be freezing cold and so, so dark (with a damp smell). It seemed to be far colder than outside at all times. There was wood in the shed, but no kindling (or axe to chop our own), or anything provided to start a fire. We ran the little electric heaters, which helped, but not a lot.
The bedrooms were by far the nicest part of tbe house, and we had no issues with them. The lounge/dining/kitchen area was however a little depressing, and not a relaxing place to hang out. The couch and chair were very aged, both facing the fire that we couldn't use. The kitchen was not very sufficient for cooking meals in either. Pots were fine, but the fry pans were bent out of shape, so they didn't sit flat on the electric stove, we murdered our fish trying to cook them on there. Only one tray in the oven, which was dirty and there wasn't anything like baking paper or alfoil to cover it, so we weren't game to use it. Basic plates, bowls etc were fine thogh.
Bathroom had an in bath shower, perfect for us and a toddler, but I wouldn't recommend for anyone with any mobility issues.
No laundry facilities on site, so you need to go into town and use the laundromat.
Garden was overgrown, we had to pick who would need to step out into plants each time we parked & there was nowhere for our toddler to play outside.
And did I mention it was dark? :) so, very dark! Perhaps washing the very dirty windows would help, but I suspect with the southerly orientation and dark colour scheme inside, that it wouldn't help that much.
If you are just looking for somewhere to sleep, I am sure it would be fine, but definitely don't count on it as a place to hang out and relax.

We loved Strahan, such a quaint town, with lots to see and do. As a base to enjoy the region, the cottage was adequate, but needs some extra care, and money spent to bring it to the standard of all other accommodation we stayed at around Tasmania.

Plates were dirty, the freezer frozen over and we had to push a chair against the bathroom door to keep the door closed. It was unusually hot when we were there and we found the cottage stale and airless, couldn't leave doors or windows open because there were lots of flies about and no screens on doors or windows. There is a For Sale sign out the front, and we were left with the impression that the owners are just going through the motions, making money as they can, without investing any into improvements and upkeep.

With an injection of funds and attention to detail this could become a quaint old-style cottage experience, but in its current state was quite disappointing.

The beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked with cooking gear. I must admit I was a bit put off by the dank smell and it took some burning of scented candles and a serious fire to make it smell better. Nowhere to put groceries so the bags lined the hall but otherwise all good!
