We stayed for a long weekend in the very beautiful 'Belle' cabin. This cabin was a very spacious 3 stories, with the 3rd floor consisting of a rooftop canopy spa. This was the absolute highlight of our stay; sitting in the rooftop spa in the evenings watching the sun disappear and the stars roll in. The cabin is one of the newest ones, so everything was quite modern and didn't have the kitsch old fashioned vibe which I've experienced at other mountain style lodges. This lodge would comfortably accommodate 2 couples or family but still perfectly cosy for two. Complimentary breakfast was plenty for two, however I would note that if you enjoy coffee, best to bring your own (as they mention in the welcome email anyway). We sadly forgot so were stuck with the instant sachet that they supplied. No decent food options in the area so do bring your own supplies. The Webber BBQ on the deck is more than sufficient to cook up a wonderful meal. Appreciated the movies on the hard drive (plenty to choose from) and the fireplace would be lovely in winter (bit warm for us in January to utilize). Overall, Mouses House provides the perfect private, cosy and relaxing weekend away for when the city folk need some R&R. We'll be back!

Stayed here for three nights. The chalet we stayed in was spacious and luxurious. The bush turkeys would visit you during the day and possums would visit you during the night.

Kitchen was more than adequate for us to cook our own meals.

The retreat was close to most of the walking tracks, lookouts and waterfalls in the Springbrook area.

The internet was down for the first 2 nights due to an earlier storm. Thankfully Telstra fixed it eventually. The movie on demand collection was more than adequate for entertainment during our stay.

Wayne the innkeeper was an excellent host during our stay.

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
