The Pond Cottage

Ravenshoe

From $300 (2 nights min)

Located in the heart of the Misty Mountain

Established 1997, the Cottage is cosy and fully self contained, 200 metres from our house and hidden by walls of greenery, cool in the summer and warmed by the wood fire in the winter. Heated spa on the verandah plus gas BBQ. Lots of wildlife and close to The Misty Mountains Wilderness Walking Tracks. 

The Cottage is nine kilometres from the Kennedy Highway, one kilometre from the Tully Falls National Park, in the centre of the Misty Mountains Walking tracks. Next door to the north is a 350 acre property, to the south a 150 acre property to the west no visible neighbours and to the east Tully Falls Rd with no visible neighbours – this is the bush.

Guest access
Sealed road to the entrance to the property, once you are here you have full access to the 14 acres.

Other things to note
Low humidity, fresh mountain air.
Large bird book in the Cottage library.
Recently a guest walking the Cottage driveway with a wildlife guide spotted 23 species of birds on a 20 minute stroll.
