We stayed for three perfect days leading up to Easter and if you think the reviews here are too good to be true think again. This place is a gem and Brian and his family are amongst the kindest and friendliest hosts we have ever had the pleasure to stay with. The location is brilliant and the feel of the property is almost rural right in the heart of the city. The rainbow lorrikeets in the wheel of fire tree outside Rose Cottage were a real feature for us and when we tired of them there were visits from Jedda and glimpses of the three lovely cats and the chooks to keep us amused.

Attention to detail and a real sense of what visitors appreciate is everywhere evident. From the pre-trip correspondence to the beers on arrival, from the wonderful kitchen fitout and provisions to the little extras like the NZ cheese. From the music and DVD,s to the daily newspapers and use of the local public transport cards we were constantly delighted. Well done Brian and many thanks for a delightful break which did us the world of good. Oh and did I mention the exceptional value for money? We would happily come back right now!

Visiting for a family wedding there was no room at the inn but in finding Lucerne we felt as if we were staying with family anyway. Brian is the best of hosts. Nothing was too much trouble - not that we needed anything more than was provided.. We travelled with my sister and brother in law so had both the Cottage and Coach House to move around in. Both are very well appointed, spacious, clean, quiet and functional. Add the lovely grounds, the lovely Jeddah dog and escorting chooks and we couldn't think of anything more we'd want in terms of accomodation. Location was just right as well with the cafe strip in Rosalie a short walk and city minutes away. The wedding was great and our stay in Brisbane was enhanced by having Lucerne as our base.

Having returned to Brisbane after 2 years, for a family wedding, we found this little gem "behind the green gates" to be a secluded oasis. The comfort, the provisions, the light, the birds, the garden, the animals. We wonder who now is staying in"our" bed, who is now walking Geddah, who is now enjoying the fantastic (nothing is too much trouble) hospitality of Brian and Helen. If you have never visited Brisbane and if you have lived in Brisbane for 10 years, there is still more - the hosts have researched and provided all you need to know to make your stay so memorable that YOU WILL retun. Post your trip, you may find yourself googling tripadvisor frequently to share the joy of others as they describe their stay. Lucerne on Fernberg is truly Queensland - Beautiful one day Perfect the next! Rose Cottage - we will return!!

Room Tip: Rose cottage has no stairs!!

We came for 10 days from the USA for our son's wedding. We stayed in the Rose Cottage which had a well equipped and stocked kitchen as well as a large bathroom, sitting area and table with chairs along with a queen sized bed. Because the location is close to grocery stores,restaurants, and train station it was easy to be independent in a new place.

We appreciated the helpfulness of Brian, the host, as well as the friendliness of his family. Everywhere we went we recommended sending friends and family to Lucerne on Fernberg. If we ever return to Brisbane, we will certainly make efforts to stay here again.

We cannot recommend Lucerne highly enough - it is now our accommodation of choice whenever we visit Brisbane. We took our extended family with us on our last trip in December and shared the two cottages between is. Brian is an amazing host and a wealth of local information - he makes you feel like one of the family while still respecting the privacy of his guests. The cottages have been beautifully restored, are spotless and extremely well equipped and stocked. This is a true hidden treasure in the Brisbane city area.
