Schouten House

Schouten House is a heritage listed home, rich in history and a well-known landmark on Tasmania’s East Coast. Built in 1844 as an inn, it is one of the first substantial buildings to appear in Swansea when the township was being established around a military base on Waterloo Point.
Now a comfortable bed and breakfast offering traditional accommodation, and a warm welcome, it is an excellent place to call home while you explore the coast and Freycinet Peninsula, or just as a relaxing getaway.
Hearty cooked breakfasts, including options such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or our popular pancakes with maple syrup and bacon, are included for all guests.
If you’re looking for quality restaurant style eating year round, Swansea also boasts some of the finest eateries you’ll find anywhere – check our website for links or ask us for recommendations.
If you like history, peace and good food, Swansea and Schouten House are well worth a visit.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania's deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
