Beatiful peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at Hilly Ridge as a treat for my wife. The house is located in the lovely rolling hills about 15 mins out of Boonah. The views from the decks are spectacular, especially in the morning. Wildlife abounds here. The house is well equipped for cooking and also has a magical log fire for winter. Make sure you bring all the essentials though as it's 15 mins or so back to Boonah if you forget anything. All in all I would highly recommend Hilly Ridge for a peaceful stay.

Serene hilltop getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical long weekend with kids and dogs in this gorgeous home. So comfortable. So elegant. Sunsets, panoramas, peace and all the amazing sights of the Scenic Rim nearby. We felt like we were at home...if our home was a magnificent Queenlander in the heart of paradise.

We had the most fantastic time at the amazing Hilly Ridge and I could not stop saying how beautiful everything was from the mountain vistas, the house itself, the décor you name it! I just love homesteads like that and the countryside was so exquisite and relaxing, I can see why artists flock to that area to absorb the natural beauty that quite literally surrounds. Milford Hilly Ridge is one of the most beautiful places I have visited including overseas tropical islands. Really loved the beautiful country vistas, wildlife (treated to wallaby sightings at dawn and dusk), the toasty fireplace and fire pit really made it special too. Breakfast every morning on the sun drenched balcony overlooking the mountains, valleys and perfect country vistas was the perfect start to the day.

Stunning views!

  • 4 of 5

Great spot for our mums' group annual weekend away. The house was presented beautifully and was a pleasure to walk in to. Very comfy beds. Breakfast on the verandah came with some wallabies in the distance and we loved sitting around the outdoor fireplace with our red wine, music and great laughs. Views are stunning and the night time quietness was very welcoming. Wish we had more time to relax in the hammocks! Thankyou for having us.

Superb house, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Hilly Ridge; it is a beautifully appointed, luxury house with lots of extra niceties that made our stay one to remember. Perched on top of a ridge the views are stunning, the bird life abundant and the tranquillity so relaxing. The house is perfect for two families - loved having the kids on the front veranda whilst the adults enjoyed the peace on the back veranda!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this country home was delightful. The home was the peaceful country retreat we were looking for. We had everything we needed, gloriously comfortable beds made for heavenly sleeps. Superb outlook near a delightful town and great country to explore and the local walking was great. The men folk were warmly welcomed by the Scenic Rim cycling group and plan to join them again later in the year. The kids thouroughly entertained in the great outdoors. Would highly recommend staying here.
