We stayed in the cabin that has the canopy (picture). It was very romantic with a real fire place. There is a heating pad on the bed. We enjoyed the complimentary sherry. The breakfast basket was the best that we had in Australia, we had cookies, bread, butter, bacon, sausages, egg, fresh fruit (apple, orange, grape)!!! So obviously we enjoyed our breakfast at our cottage. We cut up our fruit into a mixed salad and put it out for the birds who are a bit territorial. They loved it! They came to bathe and eat! We also gave some of our bread to a pademelon and a little marsupial rat. It was great fun -- we are city rats :-) We did not get to use the big whirlpool tub which would have been romantic. Kitchen is well stocked and there is a lovely little pond full of frogs and birdlife a stone's throw from the cottage with a covered veranda and there are several gas grills. We really wanted to cook or grill at our cottage however food works down the road only has frozen meat, so you should consider that. Apparently wine can be had at the town pub. We ended up having dinner at Nick's which was recommended to us by a local and very good. Owner - perhaps you might consider stocking the room with wine and a price list and an envelope?! Just a thought, I saw this at another ecolodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...45 minutes from Cairns and close to several attractions.
