Imagine you are a struggling American writer or actor and you have landed in New York. The room that you are renting is small, very small! Some would even go as far as to say to you “Boy, your room is as small as a Miser’s Mouse Hole.” Introducing The Very Small Shoebox Room at Melville House B&B Lismore.

Welcome to Melville House’s very own struggling writer’s room – The Very Small Shoebox Room. Located conveniently facing west – we include this information so that if you feel disoriented in small spaces you will have some directional parameters.

Unlike its New York counterpart – our Room has Air-conditioning, a Television, free WiFi, and a Double (not Queen) Bed. The room has a private bathroom next door. It is not an en suite. (The bathroom is not shared – so only you will be using it during your stay). Bath robes are supplied for you to shuffle about in. The room has tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge.

Please note – we do not recommend that you attempt to swing a cat while staying in this room.

The room rate is $55 – sleeps 2 people. If you would like to enquire and have found dates that suit you – Please fill out the contact form at this link.

We also have a range of short term houses and apartments for rent in Lismore.

Also check out our Lismore Accommodation Page.

With all of our accommodation located conveniently in East Lismore, we’d like to suggest you try some of our favourite restaurants, venues and events.

Some options for eating are La Baracca, The Flavour of India, Shoe Box Cafe, Flock Cafe, The Loft, Banzai Japanese, Earth Oven Pizza and 20,000 Cows – all a short distance away.

In addition, if you love art galleries or live performance check out the Lismore Regional Gallery and our local theatre company NORPA (The Northern Rivers Performing Arts). Both located centrally and offering a brilliant taste of Lismore’s artistic life.


Our local Organic Farmers Market on Tuesday mornings at the Lismore Show Grounds are always worth a visit, as well as the Lismore Car Boot Market at Lismore Shopping Square on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month or the iconic Channon Markets on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

If you’re feeling adventurous while you’re in Lismore you can take a drive around the Mount Warning (Wollumbin) caldera. Wollumbin is the extinct volcano responsible for the rich flora and fauna our area is known for. You can traverse the rim by driving North to Murwillumbah via Bangalow and Mooball, heading west to Uki, south to Kyogle and then back to Lismore. It is about a 3 hour trip full of stunning views, beautiful towns and endless photo opportunities.
