Lovely atmosphere, beautiful views AMAZING food and the peace and tranquility of having our own secluded cottage was the best. The cottage was fitted out with Sheridan sheets and towels, fireplace and a huge two seater spa bath. Craig and Paul were hilarious and topped off the atmosphere to make the experience an all round good time. Will definitely be coming back!

The hosts were gracious and great to talk with. The stay was pleasant and quiet. The spa tub was nice after walking the trails all day. Having a 3 course dinner with different choices between my husband and I while sitting in front of the fire was a nice way to end the day after the Springbrook trails. Local food choices/fresh ingredients... if it was convenient I’d eat here more frequently. Bed was semi firm- perfect for us. All in all a great stay.

I went there with my wife and our two best friends for four days of relaxing and exploring, all while being spoilt with fantastic food and service by owners Paul and Craig.
The house and cottage as well as the two rooms are fantastic. Clean, comfortable and with great views of the surrounding hills and the majestic Mount Warning.
The bonus was the fantastic food they create and their attention to detail.
I can highly recommend this place for any couple wanting a quiet get away who appreciate good food and company.

My wife and I stayed in the main house for one night. Our fantastic hosts Craig and Paul went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Nice, down to earth guys who know the area and it's attractions well so can advise on day trips etc.
The rooms in the main house are clean and comfortable and open up onto a verandah with comfy chairs and a lounge, taking in great views of Mount Warning.
I would highly recommend dining in for both breakfast and dinner. Paul is a chef and the meals are simply outstanding. Eggs and veggies come straight from their farm and the home made from scratch, straight from the oven bread, served with breakfast and dinner is a highlight. Other delicacies like homemade jams and fresh squeezed juices.. so good.
For dog lovers they have five of the most beautiful, friendly labradors you could ever meet. You can also arrange to have a play with them!
We are already looking forward to our next trip and would highly recommend this place!
