About this property

Comfort and Convenience for Families and Groups on the Blue Derby MTB Trails

Historic lodge in Derby
The Lodge is perfectly located literally within 100 metres of Derby's world renowned Blue Derby MTB Trails and provides everything you need for your MTB experience of a lifetime.
On the Main Street in the beautiful riverside township of Derby the Lodge offers wonderful views and a large back garden that overlooks the nearby river.

The historic Postmaster's Lodge has been recently renovated and converted into a self catering guest house for short term rentals.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms each with single beds PLUS downstairs, a bed-sitting room with a double spring mattress sofa bed and TV. There is also a trundle bed available for that someone who decides to join you at the last minute.

Two newly renovated bathrooms with showers will keep everyone fresh and ready to go.
Relax in the inviting living room upstairs with the wood fire and TV; watch a DVD or upload your own GoPro vision from the day's riding. There is a second sitting room downstairs with a comfy double sofa bed and Smart TV; ideal for extra guests.

Charge your devices on the 4x USB points and enjoy the FREE hi-speed Wi-Fi with the spectacular mountain views from the enclosed upstairs balcony.

You can choose to eat in the well equipped kitchen (note; there is no oven but several electric baking and roasting dishes).
Outside on the rear porch you can enjoy a BBQ and drink in the private gardens.
The Postmaster's Lodge is central to all the Derby township has to offer. Just a short walk along Main Street to local cafes, pizza restaurant, stores, pub and bike hire and shuttle services.
MTB facilities include a secure bike and luggage storage shed and bike work stand.
The free Council operated bike wash with hoses hoses to clean up after a day on the forest mountain trails is just across the road.

ALSO AVAILABLE: The original mail sorting rooms under the Post Office have just been converted into a modern one bedroom Apartment to provide the the perfect getaway for couples. Nearby, the old garages that were once the local lines-men's depot for the Postmaster General's Department have been converted into a luxury two bedroom chalet overlooking the river.

The township itself is the perfect spot not just for the famous Blue Derby MTB Trails but for bush walking, fishing and kayaking.
It is a great base for touring Tasmania's beautiful north eastern wineries, waterfalls, forests and beaches: for example it is just 90 minutes from the spectacular Bay of Fires and 60 minutes to the famous Pipers Brook Vineyard.
