Caroline met me at the front door & greeted me like a long lost friend. We felt extremely comfortable as her guest & she placed home made muffins at our door on arrival. We stayed in Jessie's Room. Lots of room for our 2 year old to stretch his legs & the heating was very comfortable. We stayed an extra night & had choc. muffins the second day- again home-made. Caroline included some "extra" muffins for us to take for the trip up to Cradle Mountain. Claw bath was novel but the water pipes made a bit of noise- maybe the cold? If your looking for a "Tasmanian Experience"- stay at Ormiston & picture life in the early 1900's...
