Mount Glorious Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Nestled in 15 acres of tranquil rainforest just 35km north-west of Brisbane, Turkey's Nest is a perfect retreat from the bustle of city life, close to the city, yet a world away!

You will feel the cares of everyday life slip away as you settle into one of our two private, cosy guest cottages, or spacious private suite, each totally separate and nestled on the edge of the rainforest.

White Gum Cottage - sleeps 4

White Gum Cottage is totally private and self contained, with dining area, lounge, verandah and a fully equipped kitchen. A former forestry cottage, it has a delightful rustic charm, combined with all the modern conveniences you would expect to make your stay comfortable.

The cottage contains two bedrooms, one queen and one double, making it suitable for two couples, or for a family of four.

The view from the bedroom, dining room and kitchen could not be more relaxing, taking in the rainforest and the visiting native birds (some of which will eat from your hand). Cook up a feast in the well-equipped kitchen, which includes an espresso coffee machine. A comfy lounge is the place to sit by the fire, listen to music, play a game of Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit, drink wine, read a good book and chat., before retiring to a bed warmed by an electric blanket.

We provide all the comforts for a romantic stay, including electric blankets for those chilly winter nights, port and chocolates, music, and a selection of books and games, and an expresso coffee machine.

Turkey's Nest is a wildlife refuge, registered under the Land for Wildlife scheme. Awake a magnificent view through towering trees to the rainforest below. Relax on the veranda where a wide variety of exotic birds come to feed. Take a rainforest walk, stop at a local cafe, then back to your cottage for a massage, reading a book, sipping wine, a romantic candlelit meal, port and chocolates - how much more relaxing can it get?

While Brisbane swelters in summer heat, Mount Glorious (620m above sea level and surrounded by D'Aguilar National Park) is pleasantly cool (be sure to bring a jumper, as temperatures average 6 degrees less than Brisbane at all times). On chilly winter nights, as mists waft through the forest, relax by a cosy fireplace, where you'll find a CD player and range of CDs, ipod docking station, a selection of books and games, complimentary port and home-made chocolates.

A short stroll to the tranquil village of Mt. Glorious offers bush walking in the rainforest of D'Aguilar National Park, three cafes, a quality restaurant with stunning views over the valley below, and a unique sculpture garden.

Turkey's Nest is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the tranquility in the company of someone special.

To extend the experience, we may be able to arrange early check-in or late check-out (subject to other bookings). Please enquire when you book.

Massages are available by prior arrangement. How much more relaxing can it get?
