“Just what the doctor ordered”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

We had 3 nights at CrookNeck Retreat and enjoyed every bit of our stay. We were greeted by Brett on arrival and immediately made to feel at home. The music playing on arrival, the bottle of wine and the cheese made for a lovely start to our stay. The cabins are well appointed and inviting and ours had an amazing view of Mt Coonowrin from the deck and spa bath.

We were looking for a relaxing and tech-free long-weekend and CrookNeck Retreat did not disappoint. From the sound of the rain on the roof, to the misty views of Mt Coonowrin, to the leaves gently dropping from the trees during an afternoon shower. It really was the perfect setting for a relaxing weekend. Close to Maleny, Montville and the entire Glasshouse Mountains region, we will definitely be back and would highly recommend CrookNeck Retreat.

This is a great place for a weekend (or better yet a long weekend) away.

The cabins are stunning and have everything you could possibly want (including a spa).
The memory foam pillows provided gave me the best sleep I've ever had!
(Yes, seriously-I went out and bought a memory foam pillow as soon as I got home because I couldn't go back to my old one after the exceptional sleep I had at CrookNeck).

Brett and Megan were lovely and couldn't do enough to help and give tips on places to go and things to see.

The location is fantastic. Close proximity to the various Glasshouse mountains parks which are great for rock climbing and trail running, if you're into those sort of activities. It poured with rain while running Mt Ngungun, but it only added to it- it was the most enjoyable trail run I've ever done.

A short drive away are all the nice little hinterland towns which have great cafes, restaurants and shops- perfect for reading a book.
If you like cheese, don't miss the Maleny Cheese factory. The Chilli Cheddar is fantastic!

There's great trail riding not too far off in the state forest too- I wish we had brought the dirt bikes with us.

The only regret is not staying longer so that we could have enjoyed the room and the property even more- both were beautiful.

We will absolutely be coming back again.

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights during September. We had the end cabin (named Mountain View) which it sure had. The cabin is so romantic & the special touch of having some lovely music playing on arrival just added to the atmosphere. The complimentary cheese, wine & macadamia nuts were just the cherry on top. The cabin is in a great location for sight seeing with many attractions not to far away. We can't compliment the place enough, just go.
A good place for breakfast is the Lookout Cafe at 182 Glass House-Woodford Rd, gorgeous views & good food. Just watch out for the cheeky Magpies & Butcher birds, although we found them fun.

Room Tip: Ask for the Mountain View Cabin although I am sure the other cabins will be lovely too.

Wonderful Cabin very romantic setting. Loved the experience of the natural settings very close to Maleny and Montville. The grounds provide a secluded setting making it feel like we were alone on the grounds. The view from the bedroom window was fantastic.

A gift, one night getaway, from our daughter was very needed and apprecaited in this lovely oasis surrounded by orchards and mountains. Perfectly comfortable , spotless and private this retreat takes you away from 'housekeeping trolleys' or other guests noise ,and, puts you out with the birds on your own patio with a great BBQ and all you need for that perfect little getaway !

Beautiful cabins, super friendly host and great isolated location.

The food hampers are extremely generous and lasted us 3 nights very easily.

There's a lot of nice bush walks and swimming holes in the area but some are a decent drive from crookneck.

Other than that not too much to do, but thats what we wanted. It's a great place to just unwind and enjoy the bush setting.

Would stay there again.

We stayed for two nights while travelling the east coast on our honeymoon and it was the most beautiful place we stayed, the cabin had everything we needed including wine and cheese in the fridge :) the owner was extremely helpful and a fab BBQ on the deck, highly recommend the walks as well.
