Pumphouse Point

You’ll feel as though you’ve traveled to the ends of the earth upon arrival at Pumphouse Point, a wilderness resort set in a 1940s hydroelectric plant along the banks of Lake St. Clair, an under-the-radar UNESCO World Heritage Site that is also Australia’s deepest lake. The 18 rooms in both the Shorehouse and Pumphouse, located at the tip of a nearly 800-foot-long jetty in the water, are spare yet comfortable with minimalist furnishings, black-tiled baths, and large picture windows, some with panoramic views of the lake or surrounding fields and mountains. Instead of a traditional restaurant, the hotel offers a shared dinner table where guests are invited to mingle with their fellow occupants over two-course set menus featuring predominantly Tasmanian-produced ingredients, lending the property a familial atmosphere here. If privacy is what you’re after, splurge on the chic glass-walled retreat in the forest, which comes with its own kitchenette and freestanding fireplace.

Relax: Pumphouse Point

A 1940s hydroelectric plant at the southern edge of the Cradle Mountain–Lake Saint Clair National Park was recently transformed into a glass-walled lodge, part of which juts 900 feet into Australia’s deepest lake. Eighteen adults-only rooms, some with soaking tubs, are split between the art deco Shorehouse and the overwater Pumphouse, with rooms that seemingly float like boat cabins.

Pumphouse Point

From its position both along the shore of Lake St. Clair and 250 meters offshore (there are two buildings), this hotel blends stylish rooms with a homey, DIY vibe. Guests can nibble on local goodies from the well-stocked pantries in their rooms, or join others for a sit-down in the communal dining room.—From $210
