Dear Guest,
Welcome to High Place Cottage built by Ray Prince and local stone mason Bill Henderson. It is set on 55 acres of eucalyptus sclerophyll forest with commanding views to Mercury Passage and historic Maria Island National Park. Located above the seaside town of Orford, the Gateway to the East Coast. High Place Cottage is a quiet adult retreat located a 3-4 minute drive off the East Coast Highway on a partly sealed road with a short elevation on an unsealed road to the entrance gate.

Orford provides access to the lovely Prosser River, pristine beaches and Maria Island, and is well services with riverside cafes, boat hire, hotel, super market and newsagency post office. A 10 minute drive leads to the small town of Triabunna with its arts culture, shops, Colonial Restaurant & Garden, famous fish & chip van, local pub and the Maria Island ferry located at the lovely new marina.
High Place Cottage is a well maintained cosy, 2 storey stone and timber featured cottage with 2 double bedrooms plus a 3rd room of 2 single beds.

A very efficient wood heater provides a comforting ambience. The large decking with undercover barbeque and lounge chairs calls for great fun times in the great outdoors, allowing visitors to see and relive their adventures to Maria Island.

A secluded adult-only retreat for those wanting to escape to peace and nature – wallabies and bandicoots are night time visitors, and birdlife is abundant including the resident crows. The Cottage has been visited by renowned local & mainland artists.

Please note, there is strictly no smoking allowed inside.
