Built in 1890, the Mole Creek Guest House has served travellers in middle Tasmania for well over 100 years and provided comfy accommodation, meals and various other services including banking and general store offerings.
In the early days, a train made its way from Deloraine to Mole Creek and you can still see the evidence of the old tracks. The Op Shop on the opposite side of the road was the original Railway Station.
Fur trading, cattle trading, logging and provisions for pioneers were provided in Mole Creek.
The Creek itself is called Mole Creek as it winds its way underground through an elaborate cave system and then above the ground – rather like a mole tunnel. There is a certain magic about the area and many people have commented on the healing nature of their stay here, surrounded by hills and the Great Western Tiers and the beauty of the green surrounds.
In our garden, you will find Limestone Creek which joins with Mole Creek downstream. We have platypus in the creek and fish.
Take time to wander through the garden and literally smell the roses!
The guesthouse is proudly owned and operated by Robert and Toni Mehigan. We have owned the Guest House for 4 years now.
The Guest House has an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ theme as Alice Howe was the very first Proprietress of the property and so we have themed it in her honour. Our largest suite is called Alice’s Room.
