Bushy Summers has been designed by artists, Claire Lloyd and Matthew Usmar Lauder, purely to nurture you and feed your creative soul. Resting on the shores of Lettes Bay, Tasmania, Bushy Summers is the most private shack in the bay. It is simple and cosy with stunning views to help you unwind and feel inspired as you disconnect in nature and reconnect to self. Your day will gently unfold as you wake up to the sound of birdsong or the quack of the resident ducks as they wander up and down the bay. Pull back the curtains and look out to the bay, completely relax as you curl up with a pot of tea and book in the comfy double bed. Soak in the luxurious cast iron claw foot bath tub and glimpse the gum tree tops. Cook your favourite meal in our simple, little kitchen or sit out on the deck with a glass of Tasmanian wine and read, write, paint and feel inspired. This is truly a magical place and nurturing retreat.

Welcome to Seaforth. Although this little shack is only young, having been built in 1965, she has had quite the adventure getting to where she sits now. Like all good stories, hers has been passed onto me through word of mouth. The beautiful locals, some of who’s families have been here since Strahan’s humble beginnings, know not only her history well, but also the history of the land in which she dwells. Now when I say adventure, I mean a good old fashioned road trip kind of adventure. Not every house gets the luxury of travelling through the raw, untamed, and captivating landscape of the West Coast before finding its own place to call home. Seaforth is no ordinary shack in that sense, she once sat her sturdy bones in a little town called Gormanston, just outside Queenstown. So the story goes, she caught the eye of the mayor of Queenstown at the time, Peter Shulze. From what I have been told, ‘Shultzy’ was a much-loved figure head of the West Coast. It has been said that he had a good love of fishing, as do most West Coast inhabitants. He could have chosen a shack anywhere in Tasmania to go fishing, but instead he bought ‘Seaforth’ from Gormanston to the then named “Buoy Point” to be his fishing shack. There is something undeniable about the way this land gets into your heart, once here some could stay forever. I guess that’s how Mr Schultz felt too.
