Frequently Asked Questions

Info about Eagles Nest

Nest Information

How many Nests are there & are they all the same?

There are three properties and they are each unique and luxurious with their own signature design and features. Nest I was our original property and highlights the very best of Tasmania within its octagonal 2-storey design. Nest II is the largest and grandest of our properties and is a very modern design to showcase those incredible lakeside Mount Roland views and an authentic worldly charm within.  Nest III is our family style luxury Finca with the same signature attention to detail as with all our properties and those spectacular water reflection views of Mount Roland.

What is the maximum occupancy of each Nest?

Nest I can accommodate up to 4 people.

Nest II can accommodate up to 8 people.

Nest III can accommodate up to 6 people.

Can you book out more than one Nest at a time?

If you have a large family/friend gathering then you might consider booking out more than one retreat for your stay. The properties are not visible from each other but are within easy walking distance. To place multiple bookings simply book the individual properties online on our website.

Can we have parties or events at Eagles Nest?

Eagles Nest Retreat is primarily a luxury accommodation venue. However we do recognise that it is also ideally situated for special celebrations. To help you facilitate these events we ask that you arrange them prior to your stay and an event fee may be applicable depending on the number of people you wish to have at your party. The prices quoted on the website are for our maximum occupancy only and for event quotes please call and arrange separately.

Which retreat is best for a family with children?

We do not recommend that small children stay in our Nest I or Nest II properties due to the proximity to water and significant glass and stairs inside.

However, with children and families in mind, we have specifically designed Nest III as our luxury family-friendly destination. With chickens to feed, a large garden area to explore, hammocks to swing in, and a designated kids bedroom with blackout curtains – we’ve got you covered!

Can I book out just a room or do I need to book the entire property?

Eagles Nest Retreat is a luxury destination and properties are booked out in their entirety when you make a reservation. We value your privacy and after a brief welcome and orientation you will be left to enjoy the serenity and luxury that awaits you.

Services & Area

How do I book the Dream Chef and Massage Services?

Once you’ve made your booking online then you will be sent a confirmation email. In that email, you will be asked to provide any additional service requests to us including which Chef you would like and the details of your meal choices and day/time you’d like the service. We will then check availability and get back to you. Payment is made directly to the Chef on the evening of your meal. The massage services are booked in the same manner.

How far away is Cradle Mountain Wilderness Area?

Eagles Nest Retreat is approximately 55 minutes by car from the Cradle Mountain Dove Lake area. There is great benefit from staying outside the National Park particularly during the colder months when getting snowed in can be a problem.

Are there shops nearby to purchase supplies if I want to self-cater?

The closest town is 7km from us and is called Sheffield. Known as the Town of Murals there is more than just grocery stores here and it is well worth a stroll through the mural park to see artworks, the town boasts many building murals, delightful stores and coffee shops.

Is there anything else to do in the area if I want to stay a few days?

Tasmania’s North West Coast is home to many enticing tourist attractions. It has everything from fine food and wine to wildlife parks, nature trails, horse riding and charming country towns where you spend many an hour relaxing. We will be building links to some of the areas major attractions on this website soon.
