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 has a little more character and a much nicer balcony and view from the main room. Black bean just seemed to be lacking some character.
Overall though we had a good time and would recommend it to others.
- 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
