no phone no TV, views to die for, beautiful sunrise, beautiful breakfast compiled of homemade local produce, only 10 min from the centre of town, winery next door, what more could you ask for. How about a fireplace or a friendly dog to visit while you waste away the minutes having a drink

Glad you enjoyed the fireplace and Sheba's visits! We love using all local and home made produce for Deshons breakfasts. We are in a very special place in South East Queensland. Thank you for taking the time to review us

This is a wonderful place to stay for a country getaway. The cabins are very comfortable with a fire place. Everything has been thought of with fresh local provisions provided for our breakfast. We also added on a cheese platter for our arrival. The accommodation is very clean with wonderful views. Highly recommended as a base for a trip of...

My birthday request this year was to be taken away. Criteria included: relaxing, romantic and with a fire place. And away we went to Deshons Retreat, Kingaroy from Friday to Sunday - and boy we were not disappointed. Only two self-contained retreats on the property with the most amazing views. We stayed in the purple retreat - just had to...

These self contained cabins are situated on a large property. The front overlooks a valley full of farms and the back is a mountian of bush. The peace and quiet takes a bit of getting use to if you are from the city. There is an abundance of wildlife and the cottages are dog friendly and kid friendly. A basket...

Happy to know you enjoyed our local breakfast basket and cheese platters, so much to choose from in the South Burnett. Deshons is ideally situated to take advantage of local attractions or, as you say, relax and watch the world go by...thank you, come stay again!!

From the moment we drove in the gate we were excited. Two little cabins - we had the purple Deluxe Retreat Cabin. We arrived just on dark and the fire was already going so toasty on arrival. We did not want to go out for dinner so we had the excellent hearty cheese platter waiting for us in the fridge....

It's always a pleasure staying at Deshons Retreat. Jayne and Frank being great hosts and of course Miss Sheba being there to check on the guests and taking us on walks. The views are great too. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to relax away from the hustle and bustle of city lifestyle.

We found Deshons Retreat by accident but we are soooo glad that we did. We needed accommodation in Kingaroy and didn't want to stay at a stinky, dated motel. There is something magical about this getaway that is difficult to relay to others because its just something that needs to be experienced—photos and reviews don't do it justice. Unlike anything...
