About the property

The Cottage is a beautifully appointed facility designed for a couple wishing to spend a weekend or longer just enjoying the country landscape within the Scenic Rim or more actively engaging in watersports, horseriding, bush walking, mountain climbing, golf and so much more.

Quite disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Nice location...but heaps of negatives. The cottage (tin shed) needs a good clean, the flyscreens so dirty, the utensils/cutlery drawer (washed everything before I used it) as well as the mis-matched crockery. No face washer or hand towel provided in the bathroom and less than 2 rolls of toilet paper for 4 days for 2 people. Radio did not work as no antenna. Could not play a DVD as the player would not open , Austar was intermittent. Seemed someone was living in the one bedroom as half of the wardrobe was taken up with their , swag, suitcase etc . On top of which the bbq would not ignite . Overpriced for what we got. Also no compendium to refer to

Great escape from city bustle

  • 4 of 5

Loved the cottage

Birds,horses and cattle will surround you

We went to stay as our son is working and building a home at Hoya for their large family

So we were close by but could escape to the wonderful ranges,Lavender a Farm and restaurant is a must.

Thanks Lilly M and Craig for your friendly service albeit from a distance

The birds appreciated the seed you dropped in

We will be back soon

Absolutely peaceful and relaxing. So close to Brisbane but so far the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect property to simply sit and relax or use as a base for some lovely drives and walks. We will definitely be back again. Humans and puppies.

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage in a beautiful part of Queensland. We didn’t see another soul for the two nights we were there, just cows and horses roaming behind the cottage. Such a wonderful country escape from the city.

The cottage itself was clean and had all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay.

Best part is that our dogs were welcome!

Plenty of sights to see around Boonah itself, but sitting on the front porch with a drink was perfection! Will definitely visit again.

Owners were a pleasure to deal with too.
