We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gatekeeper's Cottage. Being pet friendly was an added bonus and our 2 'girls' were on their best behaviour, with livestock just over the back fence. Everything was provided and we just had to take our food and refreshments. Boonah township is quite close to buy any essentials that were forgotten. Will definitely be returning. Thank you Lily and Craig.

Lovely weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely, comfortable stay at the Gatekeepers Cottage! The cottage was cosy and we all felt at home as soon as we arrived. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and we all agreed that it was a perfectly peaceful escape from our normal busy lives! Craig and Lily were both lovely hosts, with Craig telling us about the cows when we were curious as well as going out of his way to bring us extra fire wood. Lily also checked up on us throughout our short stay to make sure we were all comfortable. We will definitely come back again to stay longer, as two nights was not enough - we need more rest and relaxation by the fire! Thank you so much again, it is such a great little break for us "city slickers".

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Have just arrived home from the most beautiful, relaxing time away at The Gatekeepers Cottage. The cottage is perfectly positioned on a hill with stunning views of the mountains and countryside. Privacy was a big concern for me but rest assured there are no houses near the cottage so it's a very private space, however Lily and Craig are never too far if you need anything.

The perfect little getaway for couples or small families who just want to escape for some fresher air!

Piece of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying on this farm surrounded by beautiful views, horses, cattle and native birds. Great having a log fire to keep warm at night and a well stocked kitchen including a breadmaker! Very relaxing and highly recommended.

Owner's Response: thank you for your review Cindy, Glad to hear the bread maker was a hit. Nothing like the smell of bread baking, whilst sitting out on verandah, with great views and the fresh clean air. hope to see you again soon

The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

Agree with other reviewers that the pictures don't do this cottage justice! We originally booked a 2 night stay, but upon arrival booked 2 more nights because we couldn't bear to leave that soon! We had a warm welcome from our very lovely hosts– including an impromptu tour of part of the property– but they also totally respected our privacy and need for solitude. Would 100% recommend and will definitely be back!

Not a farmstay

  • 3 of 5

I wanted to be be on a farm for a couple of days.

To see, how it works and horse riding.

At first I could not find the lodge.

There was no adresse in the booking confirmation.

No GPS coordinates. And the name Gatekeepers Cottage is not written on a bord..

The owner was very friendly.

And I could see a little work with horses and did it for a 15 minutes.

Aircondition did not work. Dishes and glasses were not clean.
