we (me, my husband and two daughters) spent a weekend in Sleepy, a cute and petite cottage surrounded by lush green rainforest. The indoor fireplace was beautiful and we made use of the pile of sticks and logs provided for a fire (even though it was summer and we ended up very hot and started sweating, we couldn't resist). Although the shack was nice, clean and comfortable, and the surroundings couldn't be more peaceful, the real highlight of our stay was the possums. Four little possums visited us when we were barbecuing, and were so quiet that we could even pat them. They were so cute.

Three of us were in 'Doc' for 4 nights and thorougly enjoyed our stay. Bring some warmer layers as the temperature drops surprising and we had rain and lit the fire a few times in late November early Dec.
Mum was in an electric wheelchair and managed the boardwalk ok although it is only a travel wheelchair and she did need my partner behind to assist for safety a few times. The bathroom is nice and roomy and she was fine. The coffee table may need moving prior to arrival if you are restricted to wheelchair use but mum was able to leave hers and be independent inside.
My partner and I recommend the electric bikes. What a blast! We haven't been on bicycles for years and thoroughly enjoyed the electric bikes. So much so that we now want to convert our old bikes. We also had a go on the tennis court and loved the sauna. We also had a dip in the spa. So there is much to offer couples here before even venturing out much. You can understand why honeymooners and romantics return here.
A unique stay and we loved the nightly visits by the possums who seemed to appreciate a little bit of carrot and banana. Not too much though.
Very well run and managed. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Oh one more thing--buy your groceries well before Springbrook as there is no supermarket. Mudgeeraba would be the last opportunity for a supermarket.

Room Tip: Doc is ideal for wheelchair visitors

My wife and I disappeared up the mountain for a much needed night in the Bashful lodge.
Just perfect!! We aren't talking ultimate luxury at the mouses house but we are talking indulgence and absolute soulful therapy.
This place has been designed around your needs... if you have ever stayed somewhere where every tiny seemingly trivial thing is taken care of then you know exactly what I mean.
Anthony, apart from being a top bloke, is obviously a very talented manager who genuinely cares for his guests on the property.
Beds were brilliant, in room Spa was amazing, wildlife (baby possums) were very cool and the ambience of this place is extremely rare to find.
My favourite few things: having a shower where the steam brought out the natural timber scent of the roof... did not want to get out. Even if the shower was quite simple in design it was still wonderful.
Sleeping in until 07:30 and having no idea what time it was... the room can be made so dark that it could've been midnight for all I knew.
The noise of the creek running next to our chatel whilst we sipped red wine on the balcony and played with the possums was also very cool.
Come here to reconnect with yourself or your partner and you will not be disappointed. Mouses House has real soul and a peaceful ambience that will resonate with you and loved one immediately.
If you believe in grandeur and ultimate luxury then you need to come here to ground yourself and gain perspective. You will walk out feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

This place is amazing!
We stayed for 2 nights in 'the wiked witch' chalet and loved it!
The chalets are generously spaced apart, so we couldn't see or hear others.
My only complaint would be the slow wifi and also we brought our own cheese and couldn't find a cheese knife, other than that everything you could need was in that chalet. I highly recommend the breakfast and dinner packs, they were such a wonderful treat & very generous although I would've liked more generosity with the sliced bread. 4 slices instead of 2 would've been sufficient.
We will definitely be back.
It was wonderful getting away from the kids to such a peaceful place surrounded by lush rainforest.

This place is just so quaint and divine!
Check in was made easy with Wayne, who was not only friendly but super helpful.

To transport your luggage you use these cute little trolleys- which remind me of something used by the dwarfs in Snow white.

We had the Belle chalet- I didnt see any of the other chalets but Belle was absolutely amazing.
You walk into this wooden cottage type house which has a loungeroom, kitchen and dining area, bedroom and bathroom with spa bath. There is even a little fireplace.
There is this gorgeous spiral staircase that winds upto the main bedroom- which has a beautiful view of the rainforest. It continues up to the balcony which has a jacuzzi which overlooks the rainforest.

The whole chalet is just amazing, harmonious and magical.

Remember to bring everything with you as the chalet is self contained and there are no grocery stores.
The chalet does include towels, bedding, hand wash, small shampoo/conditioners etc and dishwashing liquid, teatowels etc.
We didn't get any phone reception but there was free Wi-Fi in our chalet.
Also bring warm clothes- it does get a bit chilly and we were here in late November. And dont forget mozzie repellent!!!!!

There's a hot tub, sauna and freezing cold plunge pool and tennis court that we made use of and we were lucky to have to ourselves.
There are also numerous walking tracks nearby.

If you are looking to get away for some peace and quiet and relaxation- The Mouses House is the perfect place to go.
