This Historic Lake Retreat Is In The Heart Of Tasmania’s Wilderness

For folks of a certain disposition, vacation is all about cramming as much activity as possible into a short jaunt. For others, these getaways are more about unwinding and unplugging surrounded by serene landscapes far from the trials and tribulations of the civilized world. If you fall into that second category, then Tasmania’s Pumphouse Point is for you.

Found on the shoreline of Lake St Clair in west-central Tasmania, Australia, this wilderness retreat was transformed from an industrial building into a full-on luxury escape. The grounds consist of a trio of structures: the Shorehouse, the Retreat, and the Pumphouse — the latter of which is actually on a long dock out on the lake itself, making for exceptional views and almost uninterrupted peace. And while the exteriors of these structures still look largely industrial, the interiors have been transformed into comfortable, luxurious, fully-featured suites, lounge areas, and even a shared dining area. If this Australian escape sounds right up your alley, you can book a room now starting at just $195 a night.

Purchase: $195+
