Romantic studio cottage for two with rainforest views from deck.
Hazelmont Cottage is the quintessential rustic cabin in the woods, "peace, pause, serene and a little piece of heaven" are just some words that have been used to describe it by others. You can spend your day’s day tripping the sights or just kick back with a glass of wine, good coffee, book, board game & play your own music on the Bluetooth speaker.
For the nature lovers there's an abundance of 80 species of bird life, a bird spotting list, bird guide and binoculars, a beautiful rain forest outlook, stunning evening skies or you can enjoy long rambling walks.
A favourite spot to relax and let the world go by is to sit on the hill next to the cottage in our Adirondack chairs and enjoy sunrise, dusk or the night sky... bring your cuppa, a glass of wine and a book !
We're not biased but we loved it so much we bought it!!

Susan Barford purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Susan Barford chose Ravensbourne
After a somewhat hectic 2016 and Christmas in Brisbane with our son we decided to take a few days break on our way back to Roma. Hazelmont Cottage B&B looked inviting so a booking was made. The cottage was peaceful and the atmosphere relaxing - greenery and hills are limited in Roma. On departure we were informed the property complete with the cottage and homestead were on the market. Suffice to say we purchased the property in 2017 attracted by the location, the wildlife, the friendly country atmosphere and the close proximity to Toowoomba with its vibrant cultural scene and excellent dining options.
What makes this Cottage unique
The area is host to a very diverse range of fruit & veges from avocados , Rhubarb, Persimmons, Blueberries etc. ... many of these are now showcased in the new micro region eatery "Emeraude" at nearby Hampton ... not to be missed !
