Located on five acres of natural rainforest, Lovestone Cottages is a collection of luxurious private cottages in the heart of the Blackall Range. A breathtaking location where the views of Lake Baroon and the rainforest escarpment are nothing short of spectacular. Dominating the property is a 300-year-old White Fig tree; an ancient guardian of the forest from a time when the Blackall Range was abundant in unique native species. Luxurious and elegant, Lovestone Cottages are designed with complete relaxation and romantic getaways in mind. Located just five minutes from Montville, a short drive from the Sunshine Coast and 90 minutes from Brisbane. We have created your perfect excuse to escape to the rainforest. Thoughtfully positioned for privacy, each cottage offers a unique view to the rainforest, Lake Baroon or over the escarpment. A stay at Lovestone Cottages comes with all the extra touches that make a weekend getaway something to remember. A feature of each cottage is the double spa bath, fireplace and breakfast hamper upon arrival.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Leticia C wrote a review Sept 2023
Brisbane, Australia1 contribution
For years I have said to my husband that I want that romantic getaway, you know the one that you see in the movies and wish that it was just as magical in real life. This year he finally made my wish come true. For weeks he searched for places and one Sunday afternoon he stumbled upon Lovestone Cottages Montville. From the very first conversation with Tam my husband knew this was going to be special. Tam was amazing. She asked what we wanted, she listened and boy did she deliver. Our weekend surpassed all of our expectations and more. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were in a dream. Tam and Jon have thought of everything. We felt like we were in a secluded place away from everyone but really spoiled at the same time. Delicious hampers or baked treats delivered, massage services and all the while in quiet seclusion being able to enjoy each other's company. it was a truly magical experience that I will be sure to do again. PS the best cooks in Montville are Tam & Jon. They have sourced some of the most amazing local produce in the area.

Almost at the end of a wonderful 2 night stay in the beautifully appointed Quondong Cottage.🥲 Everything exceeded our expectations, from the wonderfully warm welcome from our host Tamara ( Jon was busy working!) to the luxury that greeted us when we opened the door, to all the thoughtful little touches scattered throughout, all was perfect. My dietary needs were not a problem, I am a coeliac and there was an abundance of gluten free goodies provided. We would absolutely recommend Lovestone Cottages to anyone. So thankful to be able to have had some time to relax in stunning surroundings and absolute privacy. Elizabeth and Stephen

Hello Elizabeth and Stephen, thank you for leaving us a lovely review of your stay in Quandong Cottage. We love hearing the surprised sounds and seeing how guests react when they open the door for the first time - it almost compares to a reveal on The Block 😁 When it comes to dietary requirements, specifically coeliac, we take the selection and preparation of GF food seriously, so thank you for mentioning this. We appreciate your recommendation and are glad you had time to relax and enjoy your stay. Regards, Tamara and Jonathan Lovestone Cottages, Montville

What a weekend. I cannot express enough how amazing this little cottage is. From the breathtaking views to the exceptional customer service I honestly cannot fault anything. We arrived to a very clean and well prepped cottage. Tamara and John were so lovely and went out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. I will definitely be coming back!

Such a deluxe treat to stay here. The decor, the bed, the bar on the verandah, the privacy, the view, the birds, the lighting, the fire, the spa bath, the hamper, the warm croissants, the bubbles…… We loved it all. It was worth every cent and Tam was the perfect host.

Lovestone Cottages are highly recommended. The generous sized Cottages are fully equipped with every amenity. Quality furnishings and fittings. Spa bath, air-con, fireplace, BBQ and a fully functional kitchen. (Hearty breakfast hampers included) The gardens and surrounds are beautiful and very much add to your stay. The resident hosts are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. The property operates with the guests relaxation and privacy as priority’s - Excellent. Additional the surrounding area has everything from bush walking, sight seeing, excellent cafés and restaurants. Along with close-by towns with that ‘Village’ vibe. Your hosts Tamara & Jonathan can arrange all manner of extras including in house self-catering packs and pampering. There are also free transfers to local restaurants available.

We enjoyed 3 nights over the Christmas weekend in the Rosewood Cottage. We loved this little cozy cottage hidden away amongst the rainforest. The sound of the rain and birds were lovely and relaxing. We loved all of the little touches from the christmas decorations, delicious locally sourced food and champagne included in our package. Tamara and Jonathan were very friendly and gave us good recommendations for places to see and do. We highly recommend staying at Lovestone Cottages!

Hello Geoff and Alicia, So glad you enjoyed the Christmas weekend in Rosewood Cottage. We always love to hear that a relaxing experience was had at Lovestone Cottages. Listening to the rainforest sounds is so peaceful and summer offers the sounds of our migratory rainforest birds. Our Hinterland breakfast hamper we offer our guests is something in which we take great pride; everything is locally sourced, so not only is it fresh and delicious, it also supports other small local businesses. Please reach out if you would like another summer escape to the rainforest. Kind regards, Tamara and Jonathan Lovestone Cottages, Montville

My husband and I stayed over Christmas and couldn't have asked for a better experience. This place is such a delight. Beautiful , secluded surrounds, cozy, perfectly appointed cottage with all the ingredients for a romantic getaway, including a delicious breakfast hamper. Tamara was a lovely host and really knows how to give her guests a treat. We will definitely be back, next time in winter so we can make use of the fireplace. Highly recommend for a memorable getaway.

I can't recommend this beautiful little getaway enough. Hubby and I stayed at Maple cottage for two nights last month after our wedding, for a 'mini-moon' and we only wanted to leave for dinner. Tam & Jon were such lovely hosts (Tam, great to chat with you!). The breakfast hamper was all locally sourced and top notch. I would highly recommend getting the package - it was such a nice treat! And that view, is second to none. I really didn't enjoy coming home to no bath tub and no view Lol. Hope to be back again soon!

Do your self a favour book a cottage at this place you won’t be disappointed. Firstly introductory glass of champagne, breakfast hamper and cheese platter awaiting you in the fridge. You awake to the sound of birds and when it gets chilly at night they have that covered to a lovely wood fire. Great hosts who certainly know their craft highly recommend a visit .
