“Delightful and exceeded in every way”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

This is such a cozy, warm and welcoming retreat it just left me smiling for days after. Quirky chalets in beautiful bushland were larger than expected and I just didn't want to leave.

Bring your own food/drinks and sit on your deck by the small stream running past you. Fire up the BBQ and throw some logs in the wood burner...once you tire of that (but why would you?) crack the champage and enjoy the spa in your room.

There's a ton of great walks in the area, though I didn't get out much, the Mouses House was too hard to walk away from...great value, delightful and memorable.

For anyone looking for some tranquility in a fantastic setting for a great price...book now!

Room Tip: Get 'Grumpy' or one of the other chalets overlooking the small stream.

Had a wonderful stay here, the cabins were spaced out nicely and the facilities were second to none. Only minutes away from some of the most beautiful bushwalks, definitely a lovely place to stay with your loved one!!!

I just wanted to say thank you for such a lovely lovely stay.
My partner and I had such a wonderful time and although it was short and went far too quickly, there was nothing we could fault - it was so romantic and extremley private we are so looking forward to visiting again as soon as possible - we didn't want to leave.
The walks and other attractions that were suggested to us were amazing and we couldn't recommend our friends stay anywhere else.
Thank you again and we definatley look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Room Tip: Pay for the best package - i can personally gurantee it will be worth every cent.

Everything about our stay here was awesome. The best place to relax and get way. Can't recommend it enough. The sound of the rushing creek, great when it rains. So cosy. Awesome cabins

This year was our 4th visit..and it just gets better every year we stay. We re-book every year as we book out!! It's the only place that offers complete privacy with the added pleasure of deluxe accommodation.Have a look yourself, because the pictures really are as good as the real thing! Take the chance, you will not regret it.

Mouses22, Owner at The Mouses House Rainforest Retreat, responded to this review, August 19, 2011
Dear Luxurykitten, Thank you for your stay and report. Just to clarify to you and future readers, we welcome children here at the Mouses (see review below for example). A past owner didn't like children back in the early 1990's, but this has long not been the rule. Over 95% of our guests are couples anyway, so at any time, guests may not even realise other guest children are staying also.

We hope to welcome you back in the near future, either as a couple or with your children.

I visited the Mouses House with a group of friends back in 1985 - 26 years ago and have talked about it ever since. The Mouses House is a unique getaway set in the most absolutely gorgeous natural environment of trees, mossy rocks and streams with discrete walkways. Each chalet has its own privacy and special outlook. It is a very wonderful place that my family are happy to have experienced. The chalets are magical, with exciting lofts, woodfires, spas and comfortable beds and furniture. Each morning the sunlight filters through the trees and dew providing a sensational sight. The World Heritage Rainforests and National Parks are unbelieveable! We did the Twin Falls 6km circuit and the Purling Brook Falls 4 km circuit which were both beyond words. It was so relaxing and refreshing I hope it won't be another 26 years until my next visit. Rebecca and Daryl Fidge and three (yes) teenage boys.
