Thank-you kerry and Barb for your warm welcoming each and every time we stay with you. our last visit started off as a few days and we extended to 2 weeks. The tranquility, seclusion, privacy, incredible views, fantastic accommodation and warm service are ingredients for any great holiday and boy do you receive it here. Forget going anywhere else, just book now, you will love this place. We will be back again soon.
Good luck kerry and barb in tassie accommodation competition - you will win!!!

We stayed here for two nights and it was by far the best holiday we have ever been on! The rooms and views were amazing and not one detail was overlooked!!!
The owners were absolutely lovely and went out of their way to make it the best stay!
When we checked out we booked again for our honeymoon later this year!!

This place offers a unique experience within a rainforest with a view on a crater. You really feel like beeing on your own. Great hosts, great details provided. You really feel this people know what customers need. Great brekkie provided in the room, great deck to enjoy your own bbq and a glass of wine on the private deck. The only negative thing was cleanliness. But we know that this is not easy in these kind of surroundings.

My partner and I stayed here for just one night to celebrate our 1 yearr anniversary. It truly was the most romantic escape I could imagine. We stayed in January, however it would be unbelievable in winter - with the swivelling fireplace, huge spa overlooking the bush and surrounding farming land and creek, and cosy comfy couch.

Lovely soothing music playing as we walked in the door, Kerry showed us the fully self contained timber pole cabin. Barb's home made muffins on arrival were delicious, as was the breakfast that was provided for us to cook at our lesuire the next morning. The outdoor shower was an invigorating experience - lovely and warm water while standing under a rainforest tree and the rain! All very private of course - only the birds can see you!!

The king bed (actually king, not two singles joined) and incredible assortment of pillows were incredibly comfortable! The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and crockery (although perhaps a microwave container wouldn't go astray and a heatproof tray) and although there is no oven, there is a bbq on the balcony with a hood that works well. I was going to grill some oysters, but had to use the bbq - no big drama - it worked fine.

There is reading material provided in the room (not needed for just one night of course) and dvd's and cd's available from reception. The TV is tucked away in a cupboard, which is lovely as we didn't want to watch it and it's nice not to have it as a centerpoint as in many rooms these days. Instead, we made the gorgeous candles and flowers our centrepoint!

The view from the balcony is wonderful - I'm sure it's lovely from any other cabin/treehouse - ours overlooked the trees where tree kangaroos live, as well as the farming land and a little creek. The retreat is located on the top of an old volcano and the views even driving up the driveway are amazing.

Kerry and Barb are absolutely lovely hosts and their attention to the smallest details is what makes the stay here so perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed at "Yellow Aspen" (cabin 1) and I highly recommend it. Large spa (although all...

Wow! This place is truly amazing. Barb and Kerry welcomed us With muffins and jam and cream on arrival. The breakfast goodies were really lovely and plentiful. The cabins are so privately placed. The outside shower was awesome. Inside the cabin was delightful. It was such a delightful experience. I definitely recommend a 3 night stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside shower

My husband and I were originally booked in for a three night stay but ended up adding an extra night as we didn't want to leave! Our lovely hosts, Kerry and Barb, thought of absolutely everything - from the rose petal heart on the doorstep to the delicious homemade muffins, it was the added extra's that made our stay perfect . The location is fantastic - secluded and romantic...it's easy to believe you are the only people there! The cabin was cosy with plenty of room, the spa bath was luxurious and the view of the crater from our veranda was wonderful. We enjoyed feeding the wallabies and keeping an eye out for all the different species of birds that are abundant at Mt Quincan. Whether you are looking to rekindle the romance, enjoying your honeymoon or are an avid wildlife enthusiast, Mt Quincan ticks all the boxes and can cater for your needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are definitely looking forward to returning.

My new husband and I spent three nights here as a very short honeymoon. We purchased a 'romance package' as an add on to the accommodation in one of the canopy cabins, and it perfectly fit the bill. The hosts Kerry and Barb were excellent - very friendly, efficient and professional. Our welcome was great and Barb's fresh muffins were fab. The canopy cabins are beautifully done - sympathetic and well executed design to take best advantage of surroundings-perched on the side of the mountain overlooking the surrounding countryside, they blend beautifully into the forest canopy - you have no idea where the neighbouring cabins are unless you spy the car and you never hear a peep. The 'romance package' included champers, chocolates, cheese platter and roses galore - but even without these extras the room is pretty special. Cook your own breakfast provisions are (as standard) provided for every day which are high quality and varied - a bit more bacon would have lovely though! The kitchen is well equipped (including a dishwasher) and the living area comfortable. The cabin has a genuine king size bed with excellent and generous linen (not two joined singles like so many other places, which is irritating as hell) and includes a spa bath tub big enough for two with a view into the canopy. The revolving wood stove/fireplace is a real treat - even in summer the tablelands can get a nip in the air at night and a roaring fire in this beauty was the iceing on the cake. Wildlife included the usual brush turkeys, pademelons and the promise of tree kangaroos and platypus, but we lucked out on the latter two. Dinner is easily found in Peeramon or Yungaburra a stones throw away, but with your own provisions the kitchen would be suited to a gourmet feast. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it as a perfect getaway for any occasion.
