Happy Customers

Spectacular views

Our cabin was well cared for, clean and comfortable. It provided us with spectacular views as it was placed overlooking the Pioneer Valley east toward Mackay. Very easy people to deal with and from previous experiences by the far the place to stay in Eungella. A short hop down the road to Broken River to visit with the platypus and to do rain forest walks. Plenty to see and do in the area and a visit/meal at the local store provides excellent food. I will certainly stay there next time I am in the area as it ‘hands down’ easily surpasses anything else in Eungella or surrounding areas.

Mountain edge is the best

We stayed in the tulip oak cabin and it was fabulous. The cabin is really well insulated. Cool in summer. Very clean and neat. Great facilities. Outstanding views down the vslkey. A bonus were the fireflies at night. Thank you Debbie you made us feel very welcome. Heartly recommend.

Excellent value for money

We stayed here for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cabins aren’t luxurious but they don’t profess to be. They are clean, comfortable and very well equipped with a/c in both living room and bedroom. There is undercover parking at the front with a lovely deck leading off the bedroom with a BBQ and the most fabulous views down the Pioneer Valley. While the cabins are located in town they are situated on a dead end road so it is very peaceful and quiet. With little or no street lights the sky at night is magic – stars above and the lights of Mackay twinkling off in the distance. There is a general store just down the road but I’d only use it for emergencies – there is a full function Woolies in Marian which is about 20 minute drive down the valley. It is possible to walk to some of the trails in Eungella national park but most you need to drive to. Debbie the manager was fantastic. She was very helpful, friendly, informative and went above and beyond with her service. If everyone was this good at their job the world would be a much better place. The tariff was unbelievably cheap for the facilities and service provided.

Beautiful chalet in a wonderful location

We stayed 3 nights in the ‘Tulip’ Cabin. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the location is fantastic. The views over the valley are fantastic. We were lucky with the weather and the views were spectacular. It is the perfect place to stay for platypus viewing in the Broken River close by and also close to Finch Hatton Gorge. We enjoy the walking in National Parks and this is a perfect starting point. We didn’t get to meet Debbie but she organised everything for us and even had the outside lights on in case we arrived late. Thanks Debbie
