The Stonehouse Retreat

Esk, Somerset Area

Indicative Rate * AU$200 to AU$440

This place is special....
The Stonehouse is a unique hand-built masterpiece of natural stone, raw timbers, recycled materials and polished concrete, sitting on the edge of the Ravensbourne / Scenic Rim escarpment. It is surrounded by 175 acres of beautiful Australian Bush and neighbours the Deongwar State Forest Reserve. Travel time from Brisbane is approximately 80 minutes via Esk.

Originally built as a private, fully solar powered, eco-lodge, the house is, for the first time, open to the public and available for short term rentals and getaways. By day the views stretch for hundreds of kilometres around the Scenic Rim and over a number of lakes including Wivenhoe. By night the stars and moon spectacularly dominate!

They have three magnificent bedrooms (two kings and one queen), a modern well equipped kitchen, large comfortable rustic lounge including a fire place and huge decks set the scene for relaxation, conversation and memories which will stay with you forever. Sleeps nine if the optional bunk room is included. Special events by arrangement.

There is a waterhole stocked with Bass and a mountain biking state forest.

They are also dog friendly.

Glamping at its very best. Fantastic all year round.
