We recently stayed at Girraween Lodge, which was our second visit after falling in love with this place on our first visit only a month earlier!
As soon as we drove onto the property of Girraween Lodge, viewed the beautiful scenery and breathed in the fresh country air, we felt ourselves instantly unwinding. Then we were greeted by a friendly and bubbly lady, Kelly, the Property Manager and by a very friendly dog, Tasman – whom our kids loved playing soccer with!
The cabins were great. Clean, comfortable, tasteful, there's a fireplace, spa and large deck area with a BBQ. Both times Kelly organised for us to stay in a cabin with 2 bunk beds so that the boys could both sleep up the top, and my little girl slept underneath. Our bedroom was spacious and the bed and pillows were very comfortable leading us to having good nights sleep. We liked the layout of the cabins, with a family of 5 (children aged 3,6,8) the cabin had plenty of room and was child friendly. We also liked that the cabins had privacy and not too close to other cabins. It was so peaceful and quiet.
Also on the property are some bush walks which were great to do with the kids. Our 3 ½ year old daughter did one of the walks which meandered along the creek for about 2km (there and back). And then, we did the Rock Pools walk with her in a back pack, and the boys were fine walking this one as well. The lodge is close to Stanthorpe, Tenterfield and local wineries if you want to go for a drive but we mostly wanted to stay on the property and relax.
The property is also great for the kids to ride their pushbikes. My eldest son rode from sunrise to sundown and only came in for food!
Kelly does an amazing job managing this property and her connection with the guests is very sincere. A memorable moment was chatting to Kelly on the deck of her lodge which leaded to having waterfights with the kids and walking back to our cabin drenched! There were certainly lots of laughter and a good time had!
I highly recommend this place, and thank you Kelly for making it such a wonderful place to be!
