Stayed here recently and the place was just beautiful. It was a 3 bedroom with large living area, outdoor spa and sauna. We enjoyed using the facilities like the tennis court, spa and sauna. Wish the gold course was more maintained, very hard to play with no green. Apparently the jets in the spa kept up some of the people... More

We stayed this second time in Black bean whereas previously we were in Kookaburra. Again we booked it through ravensbournescapse as others have done. The houses are in a great location and well kept. It is easy to find (I'm not sure why other have had difficulties) and they are well furnished. We preferred Kookaburra to Black bean as it... More

My partner and I have recently returned from a night at Tree Tops Cottage at Sketches Resort, which we booked directly through Ravensbourne Escapes.com. Sketches Resort was easy to find, being located directly on the Esk-Hampton main road. It is in an idyllic location, nestled at the top of the mountains, and a short drive from both Ravensbourne and Crows... More

The cottage was just as described on the "Ravensbourne Escape" website. Very cosy and immaculately clean. The hot tub was great - we did not experience the spa jet noise problems described by previous reviewers so they may have rectified that problem. The bed was very comfortable and the cottage was nice and dark in the mornings which allowed for... More

We stayed at Tree Tops which we booked through Ravensbourne Escapes from 30/08/12 to the 1/09/12. The property was extremely hard to locate, directions where not great and the chalet did not have a number or name on it. The Chalet was neat, clean and lovely itself however the first night of staying there we had no hot water (we... More

We just stayed at the Tree Tops Cottage at Skecthes Resort, which we booked through Ravensbourne Escapes.com and it was perfect. Very clean and tidy. We loved the jacuzzi on the deck. It had everything we needed along with a relaxing setting overlooking the native bush whilst the beautiful coloured parrots fed on the season's berries. A perfect romantic weekend... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sketches Mountain Resort is tucked into the eastern escarpment of the Great Dividing Range and bordered by Ravensbourne National Park. It is a 4.5 star country retreat managed by the Macrae Family. Sketches is in a class of its own on the Darling Downs with a variety of chalets available from intimate one bedroom love nests to expansive three bedroom lodges. No two chalets are the same and all have been finished with comfort and a sense of occasion. Artists, writers and daydreamers alike find inspiration in the peace and serenity of this 85 hectare property as do those who simply wish to relax on the verandah, in the spa or in front of the fire with a glass of wine, contemplating the view and enjoying the bird life as they flitter musically through the trees. ... more   less
