This is the place to go if you want to get away from everything. Heaps of room but don't bring the children (although you can if you really want to), this is the place to relax and reconnect. If you want more activity Cressbrook is not too far away for fishing and kayaking. It is a long way from everywhere... More

My husband and I stayed a few nights in November. Great chalet to stay in if you just want to 'get away' from Brisbane city for awhile. The owners can provide you with a breakfast basket for an additional price but we just bought our own food as there are full kitchen facilities available. The only negative was the bed... More

This place is a fantastic getaway. Very clean, luxurious, and the best thing of all is that you are away from it all and u dont have to see anyone on arrival with the key being on the property. We were in the Treetops chalet and we couldnt see anyone else around which was just so relaxing. the only thing... More

Thanks for coming to stay recently and thank you also for this review. We are glad that you had a wonderful time and yes you are right, the chalets are very private and peaceful. This area generally has challenges with mobile/internet access but we are currently working with two Toowoomba companies to see if we can improve this. Hopefully we... More

My new husband and I stay at ravensbourne for our honeymoon and loved it. It was such a tranquil getaway. The people who own the chalets are amazing and so accommodating. The breakfast baskets were so delicious and such fun. It was a perfect relaxing honeymoon for us.

We've been to the chalets twice now, and each time it has rained... Perfect! Light up the log fire, grab your favourite books, magazines, DVDs and more importantly, your special someone. Listen to the songs of birds long forgotten by the cities, they may even pay you a visit, sip your favourite tipple on the balcony while cooking up a... More

Thank you for coming to stay here again. We always love it when we have guests who return to visit us. The weather last weekend was perfect for the chalets - who would have guessed that in mid February you would enjoy gentle showers of rain occasionally and cooler nights so that you could really enjoy the atmosphere of the...

We had a lovely time here disconnecting from it all. The room was great, very private and well equipped for cooking and bbq s. The owners are helpful and approachable but give you all the privacy you need. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to have a restful break.

Thank you for this review. It is always lovely to hear how people have enjoyed the various aspects of staying at Ravensbourne Forest Chalets. Our four distinct seasons make each break away quite unique. Our summer getaways are less humid than the coast and the winter get aways are very popular because of the log fires, spa baths and romantic... More

What a wonderful setting for a relaxing weekend and Irene & Wes the perfect hosts. After following the excellent directions we had been given along with our booking confirmation, we arrived to a very warm, friendly welcome from Irene. We were given maps and brochures about the area and a few ideas about places to visit, where to eat etc,... More

Most places have some faults but the Ravensbourne Forest Chalets were perfection. Log fire laid when we arrived, Bottle of wine to choose because we stayed 2 nights, huge range of dvd's to watch, good size spa bath, plenty of towels, reverse cycle air to warm up the cabin quickly if we didn't feel like relaying the fire, Comfortable seats...
