We booked a long weekend @ Diamondvale Lodge for my mum's very special birthday. The owners Tony & Kerrin as well as Julie organised everything from tours (wine & local produce), dinner reservations, catering for a special lunch & dinner. We had a fantastic time & the Lodge is amazing - staying in our group was 5 adults & 2 children, there was plenty of room with four big bedrooms (tv's in all), three bathrooms, spacious balconies & most of all a wonderful setting. All the things you need (fire place, ipod docking station, beautifully equipped kitchen, breakfast delivered each morning) as well as a few extra touches (complimentary wine, good variety of tea & coffee, loads of products in the bathroom - just in case you forgot something). There is a fantastic heritage walk into town, which my father & nephew loved. This is a fantastic place to stay.
Some of my suggestions for the area are: Granite Belt Dairy (beautiful cheese), Strawberry Fields (pick your own Strawberries - they are ymmmmm - my nephew loved it), Vincenzo's (great Italian produce), Suttons Juice Factory (best ever apple juice), Vivienne's Cottage Spice Shop (the curry powder is excellent - it is only a small shed at the owners house, however you need to give it a go), Wineries (Ravens Croft, Rumbalara Estate, Casley Mount Hutton, Just Reds), and an olive place (I can not remember the name - they also have great fudge), Anna's Italian (was good value for money). We used Filippo's Tours, for 2 x 1/2 day private tours - Bob was our driver, he was very accommodating and made our trip easy & enjoyable. Stanthorpe is a great town, you just need to get out and experience all the fabulous local produce it has to offer. We will all be going back again.
