About Huskisson Bed & Breakfast
The Bed & Breakfast has been stylishly renovated and decorated to create an uncomplicated, beach feel. The charming 1913 weatherboard cottage has a great atmosphere with white panelled walls, high ceilings, and a deep verandah for guests to use.
All our guest rooms are spacious and uncluttered with a hint of vintage and ‘shabby chic’. All have french doors leading out onto the verandah, or garden terrace. The generous, modern ensuite bathrooms all have clawfoot (roll-top) baths, huge walk-in showers, heated towel rails or underfloor heating. Please note that The Porch room has its shower over the clawfoot bath.
Guests have the exclusive use of a sitting-room with a wood-fire in winter, a selection of magazines, games to play and books to read. Decorated with real art, recycled and retro touches, the ambiance is welcoming, relaxing and unique.
Tea and coffee making facilities are provided with all kinds of herbal/interesting teas and anzac biscuits available any time. Although Husky B&B is not self-catering, guests have the use of a fridge and microwave and we are happy to give you plates and cutlery for deli snacks, cheeseboards or takeaway.
We have both stayed in numerous hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs around the world, so we’ve tried to think of every last detail to make our bed and breakfast the kind of place we’d like to stay (with no lace doilies or knitted toilet-roll holders…)
We have two cats and a friendly chocolate labrador. They are not allowed into the guest rooms, but if you (or anyone in your party) have a serious allergy, it might be better to stay in another B&B…
We try to be eco-conscious so we use solar hot water and no harsh chemicals in our cleaning and washing products. We line-dry and recycle as much as possible.
Please note that we are close to the bay (50 metres down the road) and a five minute walk to the first of Huskisson’s Jervis Bay beaches, but we are not on the beachfront or waterfront.
Who are the hosts?
With a background in documentary film-making, photography and writing, we chose Jervis Bay as our home because of its unique unspoiled beauty. Having travelled extensively all over the world we fell in love with Huskisson, and in 2003 bought the historic Huskisson Bed and Breakfast, Jervis Bay to renovate and create our own version of the perfect place to stay.
We don’t live in the B&B with you, but in a little cottage next door, so we are close enough to welcome you to our B&B personally, provide terrific hospitality, make you delicious breakfast and share our local knowledge. We also pride ourselves in leaving you alone to enjoy the privacy of your own room or to relax in one of the delightful shared ‘guest areas': verandah, garden or the guests-only sitting and dining room.
