“Best place in the world!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

My husband and I have travelled around the world and Mt Quincan is still our favourite place to stay. Barb & Kerry are the most wonderful people and the cabins are amazing. Mt Quincan is the most romantic and relaxing place - we got engaged at Mount Quincan and even had the amazing privilege of also getting married there! Our most recent stay was our fourth stay and was to celebrate the news that we are expecting our first child - we discussed other places to go and see but still keep coming back to Mount Quincan - it is worth every cent you and definitely won't regret it!!

Room Tip: All cabins are beautiful, when we got married at Mt Quincan our family stayed in the other cabins an...

Our last visit was around 10 years ago and it is exactly how I remembered.... So relaxing, wonderful views, great breakfasts and so very romantic. We just have to make sure we make the trip up North more often. Would highly recommend to couples wanting an intimate getaway from everyday life!!!

Room Tip: We loved the cabin overlooking the tablelands with out door shower

An amazing location on the slopes of Mt Quincan Crater. A1 service from the hosts Barb and Kerry Kehoe. The cabin was fantastic with breathtaking views over the tablelands. Will recommend this retreat to everyone.

What an amazing place! It was like you were on another world. So relaxing and peaceful just what we needed! Kerry and Barb are fantastic owners, they have kept the place right up to scratch. It really is as amazing as all the pictures look. From the fresh bakes scones on arrival to the visits from some fury friends (tree kangaroos) and a proposal from my Partner, it couldn't of been more perfect. Very satisfied. Thank you so much.

Sensational!! This review won't do justice in words how amazing our experience was at the retreat. Every conceivable detail was thought of and catered for. Barb and Kerry are so welcoming, kind and helpful. We loved it so much that we've pre-booked for next year and will continue to do so for many years to come. Thank you Barb and Kerry for the ultimate romantic getaway - you truly are cupid's little helpers! Best week of our lives and cannot wait to come back! Krystle & Tam
