Charming and comfortable historic cottage built as stables in 1860 for the first Harbourmaster of Friendly Bay. Wonderful views of the town, harbour and ocean encourage relaxation but Scotts Brewery, whisky tasting, the Steampunk HQ, and beach cafe are in sight. At twilight the penguins head for the shore and the lights come up at the Opera House.

  • Very comfortable well provisioned property

    Very comfortable well provisioned property. Didn't want for anything during our 2 night stay. Christine had left us a newspaper clipping of local events for the weekend we were there which was a nice touch. Very close to town and Harbour Street - easy walking distance. Evenings in the courtyard will have to be experienced another time - like summer :) May's too cold.
