ResortBrokers invites expressions of interest for 16 Cradle Mountain Highlander Cottages freehold for sale

The freehold going concern of 16 boutique property Cradle Mountain Highlander Cottages for sale via expressions of interest through ResortBrokers Tasmania agent Marissa von Stieglitz.

Located in one of Australia’s most iconic tourist destinations, Cradle Mountain Highlander Cottages is being offered for sale for the first time in 20 years. The cottages are located just a 5-minute walk from the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre, and a 5-minute drive from the national park entrance.

The Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, one of the largest conservation areas in Australia, covering almost 25 per cent of the state. The park comprises two of Australia’s greatest natural wonders: Cradle Mountain in the north and Lake St Clair in the south.

Nestled on a picturesque 10-acre property, Cradle Mountain Highlanders Cottages comprises 16 individually designed cottages hand-built from Tasmanian timber. The cottages provide guests with a unique and immersive experience, as each of the cottages are uniquely different with combinations for couples or families. Due to its prime location, the cottages consistently run at 97 per cent occupancy says Marissa von Stieglitz.

The Tasmanian Government continues to invest hugely in the national park. In January 2023, a new $26.8 million Dove Lake viewing shelter was unveiled. The viewing shelter provides an uninterrupted view of the lake and Cradle Mountain, while also acting as an arrival point for visitors. Also in the development pipeline is a $60 million cable car that will take visitors to Dove Lake from the visitor centre.

“Cradle Mountain does its own marketing by simply being Cradle Mountain,” says ResortBrokers’ Tasmania agent, Marissa von Stieglitz. “Its stunning natural beauty is famous throughout the world, and it sells itself as a tourist destination. For this reason, prized accommodation assets like Cradle Mountain Highlander Cottages are very tightly held. We are bringing it to market for the first time in 20 years, so this is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding accommodation business in one of Tasmania’s most sublime natural destinations.”
