Cypress Ridge Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2012

This cottage is out in the sticks but that's where we wanted to be. There are so many national parks and wineries running between Tenterfield and Stanthorpe, Ballandean being half way between the two. The cottage was fantastic. It had a verandah and an open fire and it came with breakfast included and boy, what a feast! The breakfast ingredients were in the fridge on arrival so no demand on times, the kitchenette was well equipped and we were left with the choice of croissants and jams or a cooked breakfast, also a big tub of yogurt, a large bottom of juice and a fruit basket. So generous.

Cypress Ridge is a lovely series of private cottages. They are immaculate, well appointed, and very close to nature. Staff were very helpful and advised us well.

Room Tip: Cassia was the most private cottage. There was another on the dam that was more open, and some large...

This is a superb spot to 'veg out' for a few days without being out in the wilderness. We keep coming back because it's so darn good! Suggest taking the wine tour. It's a full day and so worth it - and you don't have to worry about RBT!
We'll keep coming back - friendly without being pushy or 'in your face'.

Room Tip: All cottages have their own unique appeal.

Cypress ridge cottages are very comfortable, the owner Bindi & Aaron offer a personable feel & are more than welcoming! If your after a quiet retreat thats value for money it's well worth the visit. Be sure to stock up on all your meals as a taxi ride to town can cost up to $90! Also highly recommended is Filippo's Tours! Overall a very enjoyable experience!

Stayed for 4 nights mid-week. Really neat, tidy and comfy. Saw kangaroos grazing out the back of the cottage on 2 occasions. Lots of little details that were great...mini marshmallows for your hot chocolate, gloves to bring in firewood, freshly raked outside area, detailed local guide in room for the cottages. Really enjoyed the privacy of this cottage tucked away in the trees.

We went during the four day Christmas break of 2010 with our two year old daughter and aging mutt. We arrived VERY late and the owner patiently waited up for us to arrive. We found them very considerate of privacy, but we knew how to find them if we needed to. We were upgraded to a larger cottage free of charge when a booking clashed with another. We found the owners to be approachable and generous of spirit and nature.

The furnishings were absolutely beautiful, the bed comfortable, we brought our own pillows out of habit. The cottage was clean, tasteful, and not cluttered. There was a fruiting apricot tree outside our cottage, which went wonderfully barbequed with the local port.

With vineyards (check out Tobin Wines!!!!!!) in every direction (including directly over the road), a lovely restaurant down the road and Girraween only a sneeze away we couldn't have asked for a better location. We also suggest stopping at Suttons Juice factory on the way into town for the best apple pie you'll ever taste.

The only minor quibble is that the breakfasts were not delivered daily, but all four days worth were in our fridge when we arrived, which meant that fridge space was lacking for our things and the croissants were a bit stale by the end. BUT this is the only fault I can think of, and I'm trying to think of one, so that this is a balanced review.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. The prices were excellent. I shopped around online before booking and easily this was best value, and I'm suprised that owners don't include more photos of the cottages interiors on their website, as they are so nicely appointed.

We stayed in a lovely little self contained studio cottage (Cassia) for a reasonable price ($265 for 2 nights - Sun/Mon - in July).

Highlights: The cottage was very nicely finished and the wood fire was great. The bathroom was nice and the kitchenette was convenient.

Some minor quibbles: Hot water ran out during the second shower on the first night; Water pump was a bit noisy and resulted in slightly varying water pressure and temperature; pillows were a bit hard; it was quite a long drive to Stanthorpe (20 mins), where we ended up going for every major meal.
