“What a great weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

What a great weekend! My partner and I spent a weekend at the Baffle Retreat and we were certainly not disappointed! The house is a superbly finished modern home, rooms were 5 star (resort style with walk through ensuite and overlooking the river), the hospitality was exceptional, the experience was great and the food was amazing!!! Highly recommend the Baffle Retreat. Thanks Elaine and Gary for a great weekend!

We are thrilled that you loved staying at our modern B&B and enjoyed our facilities. We too enjoyed your company while you were here . Our menus include lots of local seafood and most fruit and vegetables we purchase, come from local farms - so it all tastes wonderful! Look forward to having you both stay with us some time in the future.

What a find, brilliant location, great view, wonderful people, exceptional food and lots of peace and quiet. Went for two nights, and ended up staying for three. The trip out to the mouth of the river, and a spot of fishing was just what was needed. It is rare to find somewhere still unspoilt by progress. We will certainly be back.

Thank You for your comments on your recent stay with us. We are glad that you really enjoyed the beauty and serenity of our retreat. Our day trip to the mouth of Baffle Creek will always have fond memories for us too. It was fantastic! Extending your visit from 2, to 3 nights, allowed more time for you to unwind and relax. Looking forward to you returning one day.

If you are reading this review then you must be considering a stop here? Well no need to spend endless time searching for the best in the area - you've found it. My husband Tony & I were travelling the QLD coast during our first trip to Australia and to be frank staying at Baffle Retreat was one of the highlights of our trip. The truly amazing location right on the waters edge is breathtaking. We loved every single moment and even changed our schedule to stop an extra night. Gary & Lainey are top class hosts and the home cooked food is second to none. I wish we lived closer and could visit and stay regularly but alas we are on the other side of the world. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here - in fact you will be like us and want to tell everyone to take time out of their busy hectic lives to stop and breathe a while in such transquility. Check our the many photos I have downloaded which will give you a taste of our short time here.

This is the second time my partner and I have visited Gary and Lainey at Baffle Retreat, we thought it was perfect the first time, but we were mistaken as it was even better the second! Upon arrival we were greated with a personal birthday welcome followed by champagne at the creeks edge, watching the sunset by a roaring fire. nibbles were lovingly prepared and hand delivered while we basked in the absolute perfection that is baffle creek. The only thing better than the view was the company and the home cooked aromas coming from Lainey's kitchen. Dinner on both nights was superb and the desserts were "to die for"! The first morning we woke to the smell of a warm breakfast and a view that mother nature herself would have lost her breathe over. The day was spent out on the water canoeing, boating and fishing with Gary on hand to help out with all the local knowledge needed to catch lunch. It's a shame however that even the best local knowledge cannot help poor abilities with a fishing rod! Wine, nibbles and a fire brought the day to an end and again mother nature put on a show with the full moon rising over creek with pelicans providing a show for us. The only drama we had with the weekend was that we had to leave! My partner and I have absolutely fallen in love with baffle retreat and will be life long customers. We have already started planning our next visits and we have only just unpacked our bags from this visit. Lainey and Gary are amazing hosts and I would recommend Baffle to anyone!

My partner and I have just spent a night at the Baffle Retreat B&B .... our hosts Lainey and Gary could not have been more friendly or helpful. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh mud crabs and wine, after a leisurely lunch it was time for a much needed nap. Upon rising there was a fire lit by the waters edge where we enjoyed some tapas and beers as the sun set over the Baffle. A restaraunt quality meal (caught by Gary) was delivered to us on our own private patio followed by a decandant dessert. We really could not have wanted for anything!! The next morning we were met with freshly brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast courtesy of Elaine. After a long chat about life it was time for a quick paddle in the canoe before we headed home.

Thank you so much, we had the most brilliant time at your B&B and can only hope that others get to enjoy the same delights as us. For anyone considering Baffle Retreat as a holiday destination, you will be anything but disapointed. Gary and Elaine will put in a significant amount of planning to ensure that your vacation is one to be remembered.

Room Tip: There is a blue room and a white room ...... you can't go wrong!
