My husband and I were keen to celebrate our 20th Anniversary in a special way. After much research of the truly wonderful 'Getaways' and places to stay in Far North Queensland, we chose Mt Quincan Retreat.
We spent 2 nights at this Retreat and found that it met our expectations, (and more), of a "Truly Great Experience" ...
Our hosts Barb & Kerry were not only exceptionally good hosts and very welcoming upon our arrival, but they made us feel that our stay in their Retreat would be very special. We were welcomed with a lovely basket-full of goodies such as freshly made scones, (with fresh cream and jam to add), a bottle of Champagne, and home-knitted socks to wear in our treehouse abode.
The tree-house accomodation we experienced was unique, interesting, extremely comfortable and an absolute joy to experience. The view from the balcony was absolutely breath-taking. It is hard to imagine a more breath-taking experience of the surrounding topography.
All amentities were of 5 star 'plus' quality, from the 'more than well-equipped' self-contained kitchen, the swivelling fireplace which was an absolute treat, (adding warmth to the kitchen, lounge area, bedroom area ... whichever area we moved to), to the very modern and fully equipped bathroom with two wash basins and enclosed shower recess, to the extremely large spa bath which was an absolutely fabulous treat, to the innovative/naturalist/exotic outdoor shower area, the 'more than' comfortable king size bed, the balcony equipped with tables and chairs but also a great BBQ which we found very useful, easy to use and upon which we cooked a main evening meal and lunch while there.
While there we were able to enjoy the surrounding flora, fauna and general area by taking walks, (maps for which were provided by our hosts), to the nearby crater, river and other areas. We saw beautiful butterflies, a plethora of birdlife, lots of cows, a number of different birds, frogs and ants.
While there, we also experienced the local 'wildlife' close-hand, given a number of possums throughout the night, and a couple of brush turkeys, throughout the day, decided to forage for food on our balcony, 'up close and personal'.
Our experience at this Retreat was so good that we are already planning our next stay there. We would recommend it to anyone looking for something special, different, of high quality, and unforgettable.
