The Red Feather is a collection of notable historic sandstone buildings constructed by famed colonial Georgian architect John Sprunt with convict labour in 1842 and was one of the first coaching inns in Van Diemen's Land. Cordon Bleu chef and francophile Lydia Nettlefold has reinvigorated this historical assemblage by infusing the Georgian architecture with French provincial themes. Add the ultimate in modern comfort and a unique ambience is created in this endemic Tasmanian heritage treasure, now the perfect luxury retreat for intimate getaways or very special gatherings. All suites and rooms are beautifully appointed and overlook the secluded garden, each featuring superior quality beds, state of the art bathrooms and gas log fires. Crystal chandeliers hang from ceilings, Alessi wall clocks and framed Provencal linens decorate the hallways of the Inn, and there are beautiful touches at every turn, complemented by luxurious linens and Molton Brown bath treats. The result is utterly enchanting.
