Millingtons House

  • 6 Guests
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 3 Beds
  • 1 Bathroom

Built in 1925 by Harold Millington for his wife and three daughters, 'Millingtons House' is a stone’s throw from the riverside and five minutes from the ocean beach that bears his name. The house captures daylight from every compass point in spacious rooms that still have their original features.

While we can accommodate up to six guests, the property is quite small with one bathroom and we think it's best suited to couples, solo travelers and small groups.

Millingtons has undergone a recent cosmetic overhaul inside which includes a new kitchen that connects to open plan living & dining - this is modern living at it's best within the bones of a gorgeous, near 100 year old home. 

You will find two spacious queen bedrooms and in the third bedroom a single/double bunk (We do keep the bunk room locked so you will need to request for this to be unlocked if it's required). You will find upholstered sofas in both queen bedrooms to pull the sandals on with ease or just read a book by the window with the ocean and river breeze flowing through the linen curtains. Millingtons is perfect for couples or small family getaways.

We have a fresh new bathroom with a gorgeous overhead rain shower, free standing bath tub and one toilet - we provide beautiful Tasmanian owned and made Lentara Grove bodywash, shampoo and conditioner and fluffy soft, large Quoin towels which you're also welcome to take to the beach when you're staying.

The bathroom sits at the end of a hallway and the bedrooms flow off either side - there is a door which can be shut to the hallway which connects you to the open plan living, kitchen and dining space. This ensures you can rest in complete peace and comfort. 

The kitchen is fully equipped with all of the amenities you need to comfortably reside here for days on end - fridge, kettle, coffee machine, tea pot, electric oven, stove top and dishwasher. We provide a simple complimentary pantry of muesli, pasta, olive oil, salt and pepper, sugar, teas and ground coffee for guests. For the bigger items we encourage you to drop in to a supermarket on your way to stock up on any provisions like milk, bread and any other culinary tassie delights you might want to cook up whilst at Millingtons. We are a short 5 minute walk to the local shops and cafes where you'll find the IGA which is open daily until 7pm, Wattlebanks Cafe also provide fantastic heat and eat meals you can arrange to have stocked in the fridge prior to your arrival. 

There is a gorgeous stone top island bench (though it is stain guarded, please always wipe down any spills or stains as they occur to continue the longevity of the stone) with stools for casual dining in the kitchen or a 4 seater dining table for a more formal setting. The living area has a comfortable three seater sofa and ottoman with additional armchairs and a Samsung frame TV to have some time out watching your favourite shows, alternatively (and my favourite) there is a sunroom that flows on from the living area which is a discrete place to curl up and lose yourself in a book, lying on the sun drenched window seats for hours on end. 

We have a fully enclosed front and back yard - the back is completely private and perfect for dining alfresco around our 6 seater outdoor dining setting on those warmer evenings. A perfect spot to enjoy your complimentary G&T when you arrive! You will also find out the back, the external laundry  - though simple in appearance you will have full use of a Fisher & Pykle washer and dryer with detergent provided. 

There is nothing pretentious about this beautiful old house - there are layers of wallpaper, paint and original floor boards that could tell a story or two and that's what we adore about this place, it creaks and groans and whispers through it's old bones, no floor or wall is straight and we love that! We are merely nurturing and appreciating all of these beautiful flaws and we want you to as well.

Our expectations when you stay at Millingtons is to go slow - relax and ease in to all of the comforts within the house and take a deep breath. This is our home away from home and it's brimming with our love and treasured possessions so please treat it like it's yours and enjoy every second - Millingtons commands that.
