We had a one night stopover in whistle stop with 2 children whilst on the sunny coast.We are already planning our second longer stay, we had such a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil experience at whistle stop you really feel a hundred miles from anywhere.It is rustic but I think that all adds to the charm of the place.Well equipped fireplace, and small touches through the cabin that really made a difference, such as chocolates, a rose on our bed, bubbles moisturizer, candles, relaxing music playing quietly in the background upon our arrival.Our host was friendly and guided us around the property when we arrived also delivered our yummy scones with jam and cream.I think this is the peerfct spot to the unwind, enjoy the spa bath in the forest and curl up around the fire.Glad secrets offers a few accommodation options for parents who wish to bring children along with them.Also very private.Great job secrets on the lake see you again soon :)

Just had our second stay at Secrets for our 20th Wedding anniversary. This is a truly amazing hide-away to unwind. The most romantic little gem of a place..... Nothing to do but relax... The owners & staff make every effort to ensure your stay is perfect.... They think of everything!! We will most definitely return again and again.....we have found our slice of paradise!!

Paradise tucked away at Montville. Many locals still don't know we are here - thank you for helping spread the work, and thank you for spending your anniversary with us. We hope we can celebrate many more with you.

Our daughter and son in law Secret wedding. We flew to Brisbane where all the clues started, next clue was Maleny, next we where told to go to Montville Secrets on the Lake. When you arrive you are greeted like you are family. We had a choice of wine, then take to your room. The walk to your room was like fairy land with all the timber carvings on the way. Our accommodation was incredible every where you look there was another wooden animal carving.
Your room had all top of the range fittings and fixtures, the view over the lake was beautiful.
As for the staff and owners fantastic service, they could not do enough for you.
Wedding was perfect you could not have asked for any more.

Thankyou to all the staff and owners for making the two days perfect.

My friends and I stayed in 'the nest' last July during our school holidays (we are school teachers). The 5 of us stayed comfortably in the 3 bedroom house and loved the outdoor spa! The nest looks over the lake and sits amongst the tree canopy. At sunset we had a few kookaburras come and sit with us on the balcony. We loved the fluffy bath robes and fire place, perfect for enjoying a cheese platter and a glass of wine from the local wineries!! We loved the fresh breakfast hamper that is delivered to your room and the complimentary wine.

We went for a walk around the grounds to the beautiful gardens and the restaurant.
My favourite part of our stay was discovering the hand carved wooden animals and sculptures around the nest and along the walkways. Secrets is a magical escape for couples and groups of friends! Looking forward to going back for another girls weekend this winter!!

George was waiting to welcome us when we arrived. We were taken aback by the generosity of the welcome basket and overall service. The whole staff were friendly and so kind. The grounds were inviting and had an array of lovely plants and little critters and birds. We stayed in the Lizards Lair and just loved it. We were so amazed by the quality of the workmanship and personal touches that showed such attention to detail. We absolutely loved it.

Room Tip: We want to try every room as they are all unique.

Thank you - George and Aldy have always believed that welcoming guests like they are long lost relatives and all the little extras that they have thought of included in your stay makes you feel like you are one of the Secrets family. We love making a fuss of you and then leaving you alone to enjoy each others company in the space created especailly for you. Thank you for your great review.
