Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My wife and I stayed with Sara over the weekend in her King Suite (front of the house front room on the right hand side). Firstly the room was a great size, well appointed with plenty of hanging space in the cupboard, large comfortable bed and fan/air conditioning. The room also had a door onto the balcony overlooking the backyard and pool. Sara herself was very welcoming and made our stay very memorable. She took the time to talk about her property and told us a little about the history of the area which was really interesting. You need to ask about the mirror in the dining room it to has a great story and history all of its own. We will be returning as this was a great spot to base ourselves from to explore the area.

Management response:

I am always thrilled to know what people enjoy the most from their stay here . l love talking about the history as l am so passionate about this house and its past. Hope to see you soon and thankyou again for taking the time...

About the neighbourhood
In the Scenic Rim one hour from Brisbane you are among spectacular mountain ranges steeped in history with water falls, five National Parks with plenty of beautiful walking tracks from the simple to the difficult. The two lakes nearby are a must see. Also Mt French close by is famous for rock climbing and has fabulous views nearly all the way to Brisbane. There are five wineries nearby and lots of farm gate food producers. There are antique shops, cafes and art galleries. The views from the veranda at Wiss House are stunning, looking across the fertile valley to Mt Cordeau and Cunninghams Gap. Lake Moogera is just 10 mins away with great fishing and water sports.
