Directions to Glen Osborne House
A stay at Glen Osborne House is indeed a unique and rewarding experience. Enjoy the architectural delights and grandness of the large Victorian period home with its high ceilings and ornate cornices and ceiling roses, which is filled with beautiful furniture from days gone by. Your hosts Merv and Del will make you feel welcome and serve you a home cooked breakfast - the only B&B in Burnie to do so.
For such a large mansion, it is amazing how unobtrusive Glen Osborne House is, sitting quietly in off the street. A wander through the rambling garden acreage at the back is relaxing and you could feel miles from civilisation, instead of the two minute drive or ten minute walk to the CBD that it is. You can bring your tennis racket if you feel like a hit on the clay tennis court.
Built in about 1885, its heritage value has been recognised with a National Trust listing. There are six rooms available for guests, four are upstairs in the main house and two are in the renovated stables close by.
The upstairs rooms are named the Iris Room, the Rose Room, the Forget Me Not Room and the Lily Room. All are beautifully appointed. All have digital TV, gas heater, small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and soap, and a lovely treat of homemade fruit cake. The views from the windows are either across the garden or down to the City of Burnie and the sea, with ships coming and going from the port.
The Iris Room has the extra touches of a king size bed and a roomy spa to enjoy, along with private access to the iron lace verandah. The views from the verandah can be enjoyed by all through a common entry.
The Forget Me Not Room sleeps three, with a queen size bed as well as a single bed.
The Blackwood Room and Memories Den were once stables. They are located adjacent to a courtyard and both have a queen size bed as well as a single bed.
Come and give Glen Osborne House your star rating, no doubt it will score highly.
