Sadly our time at beautiful Thousand Lakes Lodge has come to an end.....
I'm so pleased we finished our week on the island here and 3 nights was just perfect to fully explore the region and enjoy 'lodge time'. Thanks to Jamie and Alistair for being amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the food was delightful. I don't want to leave this beautiful wilderness but I look forward to waving you flag in Melbourne and telling people about this wonderful place. Thanks very much!

An amazing place.....
Our first visit to Tasmania. Your lodge is beautiful and the surrounding landscape is harsh yet beautiful. We enjoyed exploring the surrounds, saw a wallaby, wombat, quall and rabbits. While our husbands fished, we stayed warm and comfy in your lodge. A peaceful comfortable place and we were well taken care of. Thank you Alistair and Jamie. Also thanks for the recommendation, we were fascinated by "The Wall". P.s. Loved listening to the old vinyl.
Pete and Janet - Mississippi

Getting caught in a snow "storm"......
Thank you for a lovely two night stay in such a cosyand comfortable lodge. Jason was a fantastic host. Getting caught in a snow "storm" on the e-bikes was brilliant fun, if not a little cold. But the absolute highlight was seeing our first wild Tassie Devil!!

What a privilege.....
An amazing place within an amazing place! To be visited again. Many thanks to everyone here :)
A lovely time with good friends.....
Some Melbourne, some locals. Whisky, gin and wine loosened the tongues and we has a lot of fun. Accommodation and food (Beef Cheeks) were outstanding and the host, Jason, is always eager to help with anything. He even regaled us with his very cool circular didgeridoo. P.s. Even caught a fish in very foul weather.
Mike and Jules Stevens
Such a pity to only stay one night!
Would love to have hung out in the living room and just relaxed after a hectic schedule of touring. Managed a walk around the Lake Ada to the lagoon in beautiful weather. A most enjoyable evening with other guests. Thank you Jason.
A remote retreat....
In the roughish wild of Tasmania, where pure nature is everywhere outside and pure holiday everywhere inside. Our host Jason is giving this place it's soul. We enjoyed every bit of our stay.
Tim and Julia - Melbourne
The wilderness and isolation is exactly what we were after. Jason is a wonderful host - knowledgeable and friendly and an amazing chef! Will definitely return and tell all our friends about it!

Roaming the wilderness....
Then returning to the comfort of the lodge is simply amazing! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Loved every minute of the stay....
It was cold outside which made inside even more special. Thank you Jason for the entertainment, lovely meal and spacious beds. We even got to see a Devil outside. A clear night and the heavens put on a dazzling display. An astronomers paradise if the weather plays fair. Thank you again

Truly amazing place......
So peaceful and relaxing, want to come back in the winter and perhaps experience snow! Thanks to Jason, great host and wonderful food and wine. Playing the old vinyl records was also fun.

A great place to escape the rat race......
Those rats would never be able to find their way here! But, you're not getting away from it all...... because here you find a different kind of "all".... Peace, timelessness, contemplation, stark yet weirdly beautiful landscapes, and resilience plus survival on display. A longer stay would be great and we hope we can come back. Special mention to the hospitality of Jason. Everything was great and all done unobtrusively.
Peter and Beth
Lasagna supper was great and the salad (with tangy dressing) - amazing. Wish I could stay longer.
Rich Unger - Winnepeg, Manitoba, Canada

And so many trout waters to choose from.... I want to come back when the weather is a tad kinder and watch big brownies cruising like sharks over these silty lake beds. great spot, great digs. Cheers and tight lines,
There is magic and wonder to be taken from every window.......
of Thousand Lakes Lodge! Such a homely, warm and stylish haven nestled gently in a most striking landscape. I've found so many plants and insects that I've never seen before.....in fact, I couldn't have imagined some of them! What an inspirational destination! And throw great fishing in to the mix for the ultimate trout-chaser's dream destination! What an adventure! I'll be back. Thank you, Jason, for your hospitality.
Incredibly relaxing and lovely hospitality
We had an absolutely wonderful stay - Many thanks to Jason who was so welcoming and gave us lovely Christmas. We will be back.
Kiersten, High, Zac and Edie
This is a unique and wonderful living experience in my life.....
I travel with two other girls for celebrating our graduation. I searched this lodge on instagram and i was amazed by the fantastic picture, then decided to book it without any hesitation!!! To be honest, we were a bit excited and scared when driving here coz we didn't see many people and houses. Until we met a lot of wallabies and wombats; we were just super happy!!! We felt so warm here because of the hospitality and decoration. Thousand Lakes Lodge is just cool !!! We are lucky to stay in such a new accommodation. This lodge is successful and we hope it can overcome all difficulties to welcome guests from all around the world!
Comfortable and welcoming ......
Credit to owners for the concept and development of this site in the western lakes. Building is comfortable and welcoming and does not intrude on the wilderness environment. Thank you Jason, your friendly welcome, and attention to all guests is greatly appreciated. We certainly will encourage friends to visit and hope to return.
John and Julie Bothman - Hobart

What a credit to Ambrose and his team to revitalize this building into what it is now. It's now a warm and hospitable haven in our wonderful wilderness Tasmania.

The chance to stop and breathe......
Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing couple of nights away. We really felt we were in the middle of nowhere and had the chance to stop and breathe at the end of a lousy year. Jason was a great host. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Wishing success for the future.

Thank you so much for an enjoyable last night in the Central Highlands. What an amazing place to stay! Such a great transformation from the run down old building we explored 5 years ago!

Fly fishing was top of my husband's bucket list......
What better place to experience this than Thousand Lakes Lodge. We had a wonderful two days. The accommodation was great and we both thoroughly enjoyed our casting lesson and afternoon fishing on the lake. Even caught a rainbow trout. We hope Thousand Lakes Lodge goes from strength to strength. We shall certainly recommend it to our friends.
