Thank you to Jodi our host – made our short stay very comfortable. She is a fantastic cook, Italian with garden fresh vegetables and the fluffiest omelette I have ever eaten. Loved the relaxed vibe of the property and made friends with the chickens, rooster and ponies. Will definitely be back.


Absolutely gorgeous house, wonderful setting on gorgeous land with friendly animals and lovely people. Overall a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Lovely township too. Will be visiting again for sure!


Loved the location and the atmosphere. A big place with plenty of rooms, each decorated in its own way and with extra attention to detail. The overall atmosphere is very homely and the shared spaces are a joy. Located amidst the hills five minutes from Milla Milla.

We were caught short. Our original booking made when we first found out about our Neices Wedding in Malanda was not honoured. We were truly blessed when we found this place. The manager was so wonderfully helpful and just a beautiful person all round. The atmosphere is tranquil and relaxed. All I can say is we are so glad that we stayed here rather than the lodge that didn’t honour our booking.

I stayed there with my partner over the recent long weekend. There was only one other family there and their kids looked to be really enjoying the large rumpus room available. The guesthouse itself is situated on a quaint picturesque property overlooking the rolling hills with ponies and other animals. The lady who was running the guesthouse was lovely and couldn’t be more helpful. She had our aircon running in our room before we arrived along with a bowl of fruit. The bedding was luxurious, both my partner and I slept wonderfully. I would recommend calling the guesthouse itself rather than booking through an external website as the people who run it are very helpful and accommodating. I have never received more value for money on a vacation.

My family stayed there over the weekend! My kids absolutely loved chasing a pony (maybe the pony was chasing them!), chickens, collecting eggs. They had a splendid time! Thank you so much for the amazing time!

We arrived and it was raining and it was ‘no problem to light the fire in the main dining room’. 🙂 The next morning we had breakfast on the lawn out the back overlooking alpacas, chickens and horses. Just beautiful! In the evening we lit the fire in the fire pit outside and watched NRL semi-finals under the stars. Jodie the host was wonderful! She was very accommodating and does a mean breakfast! The whole place has an old world charm about it, the room was very comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and we had a great sleep. The shared facilities were clean if a little old. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be going again 🙂


My sister and I shared an upstairs room which was tastefully furnished. The shared facilities were clean though not brand new. The communal areas were spacious and well equipped and the entire building has the air of an earlier time before minimalism removed character from everything eg china displayed on the wall of the dining room. Because we were the only guests at the time we had the place to ourselves. It was really nice.

A cosy, exquisite room with an English cottage feel. Delicious breakfast in grand style in a wonderful dining room, the local organic yoghurt a real treat. The whole mansion full of memorabilia as if preserved in old good times. Impeccably kept and managed in beautiful, natural surroundings. The lady of the house a darling, genuinely friendly and welcoming. Worth a very long detour. The kind of place you’ll never forget. Outstanding value for money and above all soul!


My partner and I booked last minute and the service was great. The staff couldn’t do enough to make sure we felt welcomed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the raging fireplace was a nice touch to come home to in the evening after exploring the cool winter surrounds of the Tablelands. We will definitely visit again.

It was so fun to explore Travelers Rest! My room was so charming and comfortable, the lounge area was perfect to read a book in or have coffee with people (free coffee and tea!), the outdoors area is beautiful and I could spend all day there. They have a billard room and a tv area where you can relax and have fun. I would travel to just go to the guesthouse, but it also wasn’t far from all the amazing sites and waterfalls. I would definitely suggest this place to a friend. Perfect for couples, families, business trips, groups of friends. Seriously, go check it out!

Spent the night here while attending a “Murder Mystery” party. Terrific night, Tracy made a fantastic roast lamb dinner and Mike was the perfect host. Room was very clean and comfortable. Kids will love the animals.
