Our thirty-seven-acre property at Granite Gardens offers guests the choice of three well-appointed, self-contained cottages and a retreat. Each one is nestled amongst five acres of established gardens and manicured lawns with stunning views of the surrounding gardens and lake. Granite Gardens is perfectly situated, being just a short distance from the wonderful cellar doors and restaurants this unique region has to offer. All accommodation is generously stocked with locally sourced breakfast provisions, a complimentary cheese board and homemade sweets. The cottages include a corner spa to remove the aches and pains of a day in Girraween National Park and from May to October, the fireplaces provide an added cosy atmosphere and warmth to your stay. The retreat is spacious and comfortable, with a large air-conditioner to provide warmth in winter. It is an easily accessible, single level contemporary studio with a full-sized lounge upon which to relax and take in the views.
