Beautiful little getaway nestled in the yungaburra forests near popular hot spots Lake Eachem & Lake Barrine. The owners took an old cattle property and revegitated with local flora. The result, 8 private cabins with a beautiful view of the forest.
Pros: Log fire, Spa bath, Breakfast hamper on arrival, Big comfy king bed. There are pathways on the property to take you to a small waterfall & ponds where you may spot platypus. Sounds of birdlife in the morning relaxes you, & there are lots of butterflies.
Friendly staff. Beautiful log cabins expertly designed and built. Most mod-cons including tv, dvd, cd player.
Cons: Make sure you are sure of the road before you go- it's a little out of the way.
No phone in the room, or mobile reception. Lots of glass(windows/doors) & limited security.
