Nice stay. 6 log cabins, pool,great balcony. Impressed with the the little extras such as mozzie coils. Pretty much fully loaded kitchen. Good shower which you find hard to get in some flash hotels. It is a bit of a walk to town but what better way to check out the surroundings. Even came with two dogs, who randomly showed...

A bit out of town but quiet, cool and peaceful. Our hosts were lovely and helpful and we used our haven as a base to explore the area. Our room was well fitted out, with a comfortable bed, and a balcony overlooking the garden and the forest. Highly recommended if you're looking for peace and beauty.

We have just enjoyed the most WONDERFUL WEEKEND at Milkwood Lodge! The accommodation was supremely comfortable, cosy and CLEAN! The beautiful log cabin style cottage had a genourously sized beautiful timber and carved post balcony/veranda with the rainforest almost within touching distance. Peace, tranquility, beauty... Where do I start? The only sounds we heard were the gently cajoling calls of...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was excellent. Very comfortable with excellent facilities. The lodge is in a beautiful quiet secluded bush setting but very close to Cooktown. Our host was very welcoming and helpful. We extended our stay to relax and enjoy. Karen & Maureen

We enjoyed 5 nights in the rainforest lodge and enjoyed every minute. Hosts John & Viv are thoughtful and caring "like family". The cabins are smallish but well appointed. You definitely need a car as it is a little out of town and has the benefit of being very quiet and serene.

Delightful setting. Pole house cabins overlooking hillside tropical garden. Quiet and relaxing. Close to Cooktown. Split level cabins a bit testing on old knees. Overall a very pleasant place to stay at a reasonable price.
