We booked the two bedroom cottage for 4 adults and a toddler. We loved it so much, beautiful property, lovely and quiet. We were able to prepare meals in the full kitchen and had a roaring fire every night. I recommend this place very highly and I would book it again in a heartbeat. Loved seeing the resident mob of roos and the ducks. Close to wineries and Girraween Nat Park for easy bushwalks. Local shopping, and the general store has the best orange and poppyseed cake we have ever had.
We stayed in a 2 bdrm cottage, taking advantage of the competitive winter mid-week accommodation rates. This rustic property is set back from the road and there was no noise at all from the passing traffic. Lots of room to park your car beside your cottage, with a very handy barbecue area at the front, containing a large gas barbecue and a wide table to enjoy a private breakfast, lunch or dinner. Excellent bed in the Main bedroom and 2nd bedroom with 2 single beds. Great views from the front verandah. There is a colonial style dining room with a very efficient fireplace. Extra wood for the fireplace is kept in the utility area behind the kitchen. Full facility kitchen has all plates and utensils you might need, along with a gas stove/oven, microwave, fridge and freeze. Bathroom is warm and cosy with a strong hot shower cubicle. Lots of vineyards in the area dotted along the road approximately 3 km back to the main highway, with one almost directly opposite the property. Grocery store is less than a 5 minute drive away and there is also a pub at the junction with the main highway. Girraween National Park is right beside you and Bald Rock National Park is a 10 minute drive away. The cottage was very clean and tidy and the check-in procedure was quick and easy. After staying 3 nights mid week, we departed after breakfast on the Friday, only to realise when we had reached our next destination later that afternoon that I had left a clothes hanger with 3 shirts in the wardrobe. No problem at all, when I phoned the proprietors. They had already taken the items into safe keeping and promptly posted these out to my home address on the following Monday, as a complimentary service. The package turned up at my doorstep 2 days later! Saved me a 300 km round trip in that I did not have to go back to the property to retrieve my shirts! Very happy with this property and its location, will definitely book again later this year. It is perfectly positioned to enjoy all the attractions of the granite belt area especially hiking, photography, wineries, local produce, arts and crafts, within easy reach of the regional towns of Stanthorpe and Warwick.…
We really loved staying in our cute cabin with a pot belly stove. The bed was comfy and there is a 2 hot plate stove top which came in handy. Although there are other cabins on the property, you feel alone and all to yourself, which is special. We really liked being close to some great vineyards and restaurants in Ballandean as well as close to the Girraween National Park. We were impressed with the owners’ positive response when we mentioned our noisy fridge and the cold during the night. They replaced the fridge and gave us an electric heater! We would definitely return in the future since it has a lot to offer.
Stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage for 3 nights with husband and son. The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. Good location, with one winery across the road and several others only a short drive away. It was so peaceful and quiet especially at night...nice to escape the city noises. We spent two days hiking in Girraween National Park, which is about a 20 minute drive away.
Couldn’t believe my luck when we walked up to our beautiful cottage in a picture perfect setting. The fire was roaring and a bottle of Rose was waiting for us as a Happy 40th Birthday To me! Thank you! What a lovely touch! We took a stroll past jumping Kangaroos to pick up a bottle of red from a local winery. Comfortable, Cosy and very unique. What a special place x
