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.

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!
