A great place to unwind and immerse yourself in nature.
About Neil Waters
I decided to go into the holiday house business after having bad luck with some tenant's that didn't respect the place and left it in a mess.
Neil Waters purchased this House in 2010
Why Neil Waters chose South Mount Cameron
It is in a great location for day trips to explore the North-east or to just relax and unwind as it is very peaceful.
What makes this House unique
You might get lucky and see a Tassie Tiger or some Devils, Quoll's or some of the many other species of animals living in the area.

We had a terrific stay. Warm and cosey with everything we needed.
The perfect place to relax
Lovely place to stay. Comfy beds, huge backyard with a wonderful view of Mount Cameron, and a nice shady porch to sit under of an evening to watch the beautiful display of the local birds and wildlife. The cottage was very clean with a cozy, homely feel. Great location, close to Little Blue Lake which offered plenty of walking tracks for those who enjoy hiking. Only a short drive to some beautiful beaches at Anson's Bay. A great place to relax and unwind. Incredibly peaceful.
So glad to hear you had a great visit at the Lodge and took advantage of the many trails and the wilderness the area has to offer. You left the place spotless.
Come back any time.
Owner is very helpful the place is better than you can imagine it's now on my favourite list and we will be back, loved our stay
We stayed here as it was the closest we could get to Derby during the EWS race in 2019.
24 hours out, we had not received correspondence on how to access the property and resorted to calling the owner. He gave a long list of instructions and directions, some of which we forgot and others which were wrong (there was no key). It was a little difficult to find the property, gain access, etc. Made more difficult by no mobile phone reception on the property (we had Telstra, Vodafone and Optus mobiles; none worked). Emailed instructions would have helped.
If you're staying here don't arrive at night. Even in the twilight of dusk this place is spooky. The exterior looks like an abandoned hillbilly shack with random items strewn across the veranda. There's a separate granny flat w/ outhouse which we drew straws for; no one wanted to sleep alone out there. As it turned out I drew the short straw and it was nice. Comfortable bed, warm, dark and good for sleeping.
The Lodge itself has lounge room, dining room, kitchen, combined bathroom/toilet/laundry, two bedrooms; each with a double bed. There are heaters in every room.
The decor is OTT. It's like a shrine to the thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger). Posters, pictures, stuffed animals, books, journals, tea towels, place mats. Everything is thylacine-themed. Weird.
Unlike the exterior, the interior was tidy and liveable after we cleared the cobwebs out of every room. No bats.
There were a number of inconveniences such as the power was off when we arrived, including the fridge, which took a long time to cool down. Similarly the hot water system wasn't ready in time for evening showers (brrrrr).
There is a large flat screen TV in the lounge room but there was no signal. There was a large antenna mast laying across the backyard so this might be the reason.
The absence of phone coverage was compounded by no guest wifi at this property. We literally had no comms.
The kitchen is well equipped but the fridge and microwave are terribly old. The washing machine takes three times longer than claimed because there is no water pressure.
Worst part of the stay was that the owner violated our privacy. He asked to access his personal belongings from a detached shed on the property, to which we agreed. But he went inside the house while we were absent and left a snarky letter on the front door about a dripping tap. We felt unfairly accused and intruded on.
I wouldn't recommend staying here unless no other option.
Tassie tiger lodge. The name says it all really. People who leave keys locked inside the premises always make me wonder how they were planning on getting back in. The tap in question was running not dripping and was wasting valuable rainwater. Had I not been coming to the property that day, things wouldve been even more of a struggle for them as they had locked the keys inside and left them on the dining room table, nice work guys. Having locked themselves outside, it was imperative for me to retrieve the keys for them otherwise they would've had an even colder night outside in their sweaty lycra. Unknown to me someone had vandalised the tv antenna in the last few weeks and had stolen the amplifier from it so that is a justified complaint. Apologies for that. Other than that, the accomodation is advertised exactly as it is and it is a quaint cottage that is 2 star standards i.e. a cabin in the bush. Clearly David did not read the bio on the property before going ahead and booking it. Microwave works. Refrigerator works and yes the washing machine is slow to run through a cycle as discussed with the David. Be grateful that one is even supplied at no extra cost. It always amazes me how people leave fact finding about a property they have booked to stay at until the day of arrival...like key drop and any other details about the property but again, read the bio before you book. And the keys were there. Tassie Tiger Lodge is designed to be a getaway from all the hussle and bussle and there is Telstra service up the back of the block as discussed on the phone. Remote NE Tasmania is an opportunity to escape distractions and technology that not everybody is capable of appreciating...clearly.
cozy and peaceful
we loved the Tassie tiger lodge, wildlife and nature very much. cool little cottage, clean and tidy, hoping to be back soon... thanks to the owner for a wonderful weekend there
We spent a very relaxing weekend at Tassie Tiger Lodge and loved our stay. Although an older property, it was extremely comfortable, clean and had many little extras included. There was a really good supply of linen/bedding and cooking utensils plus tea, coffee, etc. Definitely a great place to stay.
Scottsdale or St Helens are the nearest shopping districts for supplies and fuel etc.
