From the moment you turn down narrows road and into the narrows escape driveway, it's very quiet and peaceful, The New owners are doing a great job, the complimentary croissants are lovely, we had a few friendly breakfast wildlife visitors. Room has a nice layout for a romantic escape, we did have a few issues because we were pregnant with the low lounge, but the owner did offer on 2nd night to bring another chair for us. overall we enjoyed our stay.

Food for the soul at a superb rainforest retreat

Cons: Perhaps a reading lamp in the lounge, particularly for evenings
Cabin was relaxing, clean , stylish and the view of the rainforest just beautiful and comforting. I went alone as I needed rest and relaxation. Absolutely loved the privacy and felt very looked after by Mark and the staff I'm gluten and dairy free and nothing was a bother, thank you I will be back

Peaceful and welcoming

Pros: Managers, location and nothing missed in the rooms. All you wished for was there. Even the few mosquitos didn't bit !!!!
Cons: Nothing - from the morning pastries to chocolates and port in the evening All was wonderful.........
Location: Loved getting back up into the mountains, doing a bit of bush walking and visiting the little crafty country towns. Not to mention good coffee.

Lovely getaway

By far the best place my partner and I have stayed. They truely give you the whole experience of a luxury retreat. From the fresh baked croissants 8am on the dot every morning to the beautiful creek thats front and centre of the cabins to the beautiful birds that welcomed you every morning. Worth every minute.
