Deshons Retreat
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I spent a lovely 2 days here. It is a peaceful environment with modern well appointed accommodation. If you need to have mobile service you won't get it but that just adds to the peace!! Must love cows as they are pretty much in your face! Check out the pepper tree a beautiful spot.

We stayed at Deshon's for 5 days and couldn't find a single fault; in terms of location for a quiet retreat, wonderful furnishing, attention to detail, amazing hosts and overall comfort. The hosts were very accommodating for our various needs. We forgot to mention that one of us was gluten intolerant until the day we were arriving, but the next morning at 6am there was a delicious loaf of gluten free bread sitting on our doorstep. Jane went above and beyond what was necessary! Also sent two separate packages to us with stuff we had accidentally left behind.
Would recommend this to anyone!

You cannot go past this absolutely beautiful, peaceful property for total relaxation from the world. The region of Booie and Kingaroy is a growing, yet quietly kept secret. If you are in QLD, check this region and Deshon's out. There are enough wineries and speciatity places to keep you occupied. Jayne and Frank at Deshons really look after you with beautiful local produce, but also leave you to enjoy the surroundings, peace and quiet and their lovely lab Sheba. Please go and see for yourself.

Room Tip: We picked the top retreat - great views and decor was gorgeous.

We stayed with the Deshons for 3 nights and were thrilled when we arrived to discover a modern, open plan retreat with beautiful views, a gorgeous king bed, fireplace (perfect in the cold weather) and our fridge stocked with a host of delicious local foodie bits and pieces. You can't help but relax and enjoy the peace and privacy. Thank you Jane & Frank- we will be back!

I don’t usually contribute to reviews, however we have made a return visit and I thought that Deshon’s Retreats were really worth noting. They are contemporary & private, with attention to quality and details that make the difference. Beautiful countryside but don’t miss the awesome night sky. Knowledge hosts gave us plenty to see & do including wineries and walks, dinner pack and a glass of wine by the fire was hard to beat. Great local produce, generous cheese platter & breakfast basket (wonderful home made jam). We don’t have a dog but the kennel for visiting canines looks rather special too.

We stayed in one of the ultra modern, extremely comfortable "tin sheds" and had the most scenically beautiful relaxing time looking down the valley below the Booie Range. The fresh local produce provided for breakfast was ultra delicious and and we enjoyed the fact that a high class local winery was a only a short stroll away. If you are looking for a classy comfortable scenic getaway where you can rub noses with a host of bright, happy, chorusing feathered friends then Deshons is a rightfully delightful destination.

We snuck away for the weekend & headed out to the South Burnett for some quiet time. In searching for a place to stay we came across Deshons & I am glad we did. What a beautiful spot up on the "Booie" overlooking Kingaroy & surrounds. Our hosts, Frank & Jayne (& their lovely black Labrador Sheba) were very accommodating. The cottages are simply, but beautifully appointed & breakfast provisions are the best we have ever had. Very much an emphasis on local produce as well as home grown or baked produce. We chose the BBQ dinner provisions on the Saturday night & ate until we were bursting - it was all just divine. What made this place an extra special getaway for us was that it was pet friendly, enabling us to bring our dogs on a break with us. We will be back to stay for sure.

Room Tip: Either cottage is beautiful.
