This is our fourth time staying at Mount Scott Homestead and we couldn't recommend it more as a place to stay to explore the beautiful Flinders. The camp fire outside is perfect for gathering as a family outdoors at night with the comforts of the homestead to sleep well.

We loved our 3 day stay in the Eco Tent. The facilities were excellent and The Willows Waters Gorge location was secluded and beautiful and the view just stunning. We experienced a variety of weather conditions but the tent was well equipped and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sharon was an extremely friendly and helpful host.

We had a lovely stay in Mount Scott Homestead. We stayed as two couples for Easter 2022. Sharon was great with advice for local attractions and sites. We went on the 4WD track on the property and the sites were amazing, a must do if you have a 4WD. The homestead was comfortable and had everything we needed. The freshly baked bread and complementary treats were a lovely surprise. We enjoyed a game of horseshoe toss and enjoyed sitting around the fire pit at night. The sunsets and sunrises were breathtaking. We would love to come back and stay longer.

Beautifully renovated original homestead. The place, hosts and facilities were all five star. Driving the property and sitting quietly on the porch, seeing wonderful sights in both situations has made wonderful memories for us and we would love to go back again.

Took my mother here for her birthday. Let me just say I cannot fault it. We stayed in the beautiful eco-tent. It was stunning serenity, quiet, comfortable, warm. Everything you could want in accommodation. Our host was amazing quick with the recommendations. I didn't want to leave I could of stayed forever. Loved this place alot and will definitely return. If you want to get away from it all and kick back I definitely recommend Flinders Bush Retreats. :)

We stayed in the beautifully styled and very comfortable eco tent. We experienced all types of weather and the eco tent proved to be comfortable and well equipped for it all! It has everything (and more) than you’d ever need camping. Set in a stunning and secluded location it was perfect to celebrate our delayed honeymoon. With wonderful, helpful, polite and welcoming hosts we had an absolutely amazing stay with Flinders Bush Retreats. We highly recommend the eco tent, and the camping locations in the gorge also looked fantastic. We look forward to coming back again. Leanne and Alison

Wow! We were looking for something a little different to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and found the most PERFECT location with Flinders Bush Retreat Eco tent. Upon arrival your host is so welcoming and then you see your accommodations. Everything is just perfect. The eco tent is styled beautifully, and the view is just stunning. Bush walks, a 4WD track and a glass of wine by the fire pit watching the sun set and then the amazing stars in the sky, we didn’t want to leave! A stunning jewel in the Flinders Ranges.

What a wonderful place to visit. The feel you get when you go to such a genuine / homely accommodation with beautiful facilities and hosts is unexplainable. Sharon was so hospitable, the attention to detail using local products and produce or Australian native products demonstrates this and is incredible. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with us.
