Recently we visited the Mouses House for the second time. Could't believe how much it has improved since the last time we stayed. Beautifully decorated and cosy chalet that we stayed in. Very relaxing and quiet. Loved how we had our very own spa right next to the stream that was flowing right passed our chalet. Definately the only place we would stay again at Springbrook.

We initially had booked accommodation at another retreat and after walking out of there dissatisfied within minutes we were contemplating whether we just cut our holiday short and drive back to Brisbane or look for alternate accommodation.

All I can say is we are so glad we decided to stay! We were recommended The Mouses House by some locals and decided to give it a go. The owner was very pleasant, the location (being Springbrook) is sublime, and the room we stayed at was fantastic. Our room balcony was right next to the stream, which allowed us to relax during the afternoon and cook up a nice dinner with our own private BBQ. The actual rooms are cozy, a few kicked toes here and there you quickly learn how to maneuver around them without much trouble. Sure there is a maintenance issue here and there but for the age of some of these rooms they are very well kept and maintained.

At a very reasonable nightly rate this is undeniably a great place to stay. Would definitely recommend it to all visitors of Springbrook Mountain.

Our 3rd visit from NSW and the Mouses House just gets better and better.
This time we took our 2 children, 12 & 15 for a 1 night stay to give them their first rainforest experience. On arrival we were personally welcomed by Wayne. We loaded up our trolley and off we went down the enchanting timber pathway through the rainforest in search of our chalet "Doc" which was right next to a fully flowing stream. This was the perfect size for a family. The music, dimmed lighting, complimentary port, modern furnishings, large flat screen tv, attention to detail throughout was just too good to stay for 1 night, so we extended our stay for another night within the hour. It was raining so we lit the cosy fire and waited for the possums to visit, which they did both nights & so did the bush turkey. Enjoyed the hot spa tub and sauna, and the bbq on the chalet deck was great. Just an amazing place, very relaxing, felt like we were in another world. thank you Wayne, we'll definately be back.

I surprised my partner by taking him to Mouses Houses,( pre his departure for trip trekking and teaching English in a Monastery in Nepal) He was knocked sideways and so was I, it was an utterly magical experience, the rain started as we arrived and we tucked in to our beautiful chalet beside the stream, listening to the roar of the water and there we stayed - it rained all weekend and this was just perfect for where we were at. The Hot Tub, the Wood fire, bbq's on the deck and a dip in the icy stream all heaven! Breakfasts were unbelieveable and the service second to none - so welcoming. The chalets outlook was serene and so private we really felt connected to the nature of the place. It has to be one of the most magical places I have ever stayed and I have travelled a fair bit! We have planned another trip here when my partner returns.

Room Tip: The stream chalets mean you can walk right into the water

This has to be some of the best accommodation I have ever booked. Unfortunately we were only able to stay for one night but I will definitely be returning. The chalet was beautiful inside and out (we stayed in a stream and spa chalet). The presentation and thought that had gone into the chalets was second to none, and the location was great being close to all the main sites of interest in springbrook national park. The log fire and friendly possums that visited in the evening were the icing on the cake.
Congratulations to the owners on their superb, romantic, peaceful and indulgent accommodation. I can't wait to return.

Thankyou very much for a beautiful weekend. My wife had no idea where we were going and on arrival was in tears with this place. It was the most relaxing and peaceful place we have ever stayed. The food hampers were excellant and the chalets were unreal. A real credit to the owners for making this place possible. we loved it so much we have booked another long weekend already. Love the place

A stay at 'The Mouses House' was a honeymoon present for my wife and I which we loved so much that we have come back every year since. From the moment you arrive you know you are somewhere special and little hints like the bell birds, the sound of the stream and if your lucky the rain on the tin roof as you go to sleep really makes for an amazing getaway. Wayne really makes you feel welcome and knows all the best places to eat and visit while your there.
