“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Been staying a few years now for business purposes at the Chilverton Cottages. It can be hard to be away from home for extended periods of time but rest assured that Gwen and her staff will make you feel at home. Her food is excellent and the atmosphere and vibe of her cottages and units are second to none.

I definitely recommend this place to everyone out there in search of a slice of heaven in the tablelands.

It is always a pleasure to have you come and stay with us and we look forward to seeing you each and every time.
One of these days you may get the chance to come and just totally relax instead of only getting the evenings to enjoy the accommodation and property.
Look forward to seeing you again soon.

I have just spent a wonderful relaxing weekend at Chilverton Cottages with my wife and our two pest Cocker Spaniels. ( The Kids )

Stayed in a cottage nestled in the rainforest gardens, along the Millstream in total privacy sitting on the veranda, and watching a local Platypus swimming just meters below us in the river.

The accommodation was so clean, and provided everything you could possibly need and more.
A well stocked supply of firewood for the pot-belly heater just increased the cosy.
We had the choice to cook our meal packs on the veranda BBQ, or dine in the restaurant that served up some real home made fine dining.

Plenty to see and do around there and Ravenshoe the highest town in Queensland, including the Steam Railway from Ravenshoe to Tumoulin Market on a Sunday.

Our hosts were fantastic and can only highly recommend the experience.
We will return

It was great to have the four of you stay with us for your time out. We had a great time chatting with you. Your two furkids are totally adorable and it was good to see that they totally enjoyed their stay with us as well.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future for another total unwind with us.

Our stay was work related so we were very please to find ourselves in such pretty and relaxing surrounds. Meals were fabulous and the room was very comfortable. The hosts were lovely and accommodating. If you need a place that forces you to turn off this is the place. No phone reception initially makes you hyperventilate but once you come to terms with it you relax like you haven't in years!! Will definitely return.

Hope that you can get up this way again for a total time out instead of just a work location. So much to see and do in the area as well as relaxing by the river looking for platypus here.

Happy that you did enjoy your short time with us and we look forward to welcoming you back another time.

My partner and I and our spoilt Staffy Tiki stayed here 1 night as a last minute getaway. We love our little girl so I wanted to find somewhere pet friendly so we can bring her along on our adventures! Chilverton Cottages is the place to beat! We booked last minute so we ended up in the Lorikeet Apartment which was beautiful, with a huge enclosed patio with BBQ and outdoor setting, the most comfortable king size bed, kitchenette, couch, TV & iPod Dock, ensuite with my favourite Sukin beauty products. The property at Chilverton is amazing, set on arces of land makes it perfect for you to venture off with your pup and go exploring! There are many small creeks and bridges that run off the main river and plenty of walking tracks. The one place your able to let your pooch run free is in the sizeable enclosed pet play area! There was so much more to see and do here that we didn't get to do in our stay especially as it was pouring with rain but we will be back time and time again next time I will be booking ahead of time to secure those beautiful riverside cottages! Thank you Gwen for your hospitality we will see you soon!

Chilverton Cottages was the perfect place for my wife and I to spend some quality time together and just time to relax. Staying in platypus cottage down by the river. Plenty of room in this cottage with it king size bed and spa being feature that made our stay very enjoyable. It was wet and cold but having the fire place made the feel warm and cosy. Gwen made us feel most welcome and her supply of dvd made it easy to just chill out.

My wife and I stayed recently here for two nights with our boxer in platypus cottage near the river.

Cottage was beautiful, about 5m from the millstream. Very comfortable king size bed. Some self contained places are sparse with essential items however this place has a very well stocked kitchen and is good if you want to self cater - even has a juicer and espresso machine. Weber baby Q bbq as well (though there is no stovetop/oven).

Chilverton is unbelievably pet friendly, they provide a dog bed which our dog loved and snored on all night by the fire. The dog had his dinner brought down to our cottage each night, one of the meals was risotto and meat balls, oxtail soup and some dessert munchie biscuits. All they ask is that you pick up after your dog which ppl seem to be doing as we didn't notice any wayward poos anywhere.

I have to say something about how clean this place was. I'd say this cottage was one of the cleanest places I have ever paid to stay in. Just before chilverton we spent two nights at another tablelands location for $300/night and let me tell you it was not as well cleaned. If I sound surprised it's because I am - this is a pet friendly place and whilst I don't expect it to be dirty I certainly would never think it would be so clean so good work chilverton.

Will definitely come back, loved it. Certainly has the seal approval from Chico the boxer too.

Room Tip: There are two cottages near the river and three apartments right near reception. If you're after...

Beautiful grounds that lead down to the Millstream River. Big gorgeous gum trees with birds galore. Unfortunately we did not spot a platypus but that was probably my own fault for sleeping in. Our accommodation was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Gwen our hostess made us feel welcomed.
Our old labbie Missie thoroughly enjoyed her stay.
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Try to get the cottages - need to book early as they are very popular.

We are so happy that you had a much needed relaxing time out. Missy is such a gorgeous member of your family and she was a pleasure to have here.

We look forward to welcoming all of you back to stay with us again and maybe next time the sneaky little platypus will show his face.
