Sassafras Country Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Sassafras is a beautiful country cottage on a peaceful, private acreage set in bushland on the Johnstone River just 2.5km from Malanda on the Atherton Tableland. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a full kitchen for preparing meals and a lovely outside deck for relaxing at the end of the day. It is an ideal base to tour the rest of the Tablelands or just relax for a few days. Close by you will find the following lakes - Lake Eacham, Lake Barrine and Lake Tinaroo; you will also find Malanda Falls and easy access to the waterfall circuit including Millaa Millaa, Mungali and Zillie Falls and the Curtain Fig Tree is within close proximity as well. Regardless of whether you decide to explore all of these and many other attractions the Atherton Tablelands has to offer during your stay, or simply relax at the cottage, Sassafras really is the perfect location to do both.

Super friendly hosts, beautiful quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

We were **WOWED** when we walked through the doors of the "Cottage". A large spacious living area, with 3 bedrooms was more than we anticipated! It was a wonderful blessing for the weekend. Highly recommend you try this little sanctuary in the Tablelands.

Great location in the heart of the Tablelands.

  • 5 of 5

We went up to the Atherton Tablelands over the long weekend and booked this gem of a property. Tons of room, nicely appointed house in quiet spot, not far from Malanda. It was in a perfect location, minutes from Lake eacham, centrally positioned, not far from Atherton, Yungabarra and the attraction nearby, as well as not far from Millaa Millaa and the falls circuit.

We will definitely come back. 5 Stars!

Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do this cottage justice! A lovely spot to stay only 1.5km from the township of Malandah. 3 bedrooms: 1 Queen sized bed, 1 double bed, 2 single beds. Well appointed kitchen with full sized fridge. Washing machine and dryer in the cottage. Very relaxing. Lovely owners.

Tranquil spot!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We are from Cairns and the purpose of our stay was to take my parents up to the tablelands to enjoy some of the beautiful spots it has to offer. We were able to come back at the end of the day to a home away from home. The hosts were friendly and very helpful. Our girls loved that they had a dog that they played chase with. The only complaint we would have that in winter it gets quite cold. They have one oil heater that isn't really enough. We were lucky enough we had taken some extra blankets to keep warm at night as I had spoken with the hosts prior about heating. The place is fully equipped with all the essentials including games to enjoy (which our kids, even the big ones, did just that!).

Relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Excellent accommodation but only disappointment was that the tank water had a bad aroma. Had to boil the water to drink it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately there was a temporary problem with the rainwater in the tank. The tank has now been drained and cleaned and the problem is resolved.
