A big thanks to Gwen for looking after me on the week end. The Chilverton Cottage at Ravenshoe is incredible. Amazing wildlife, beautiful landscapes set in pristine rainforest along the Millstream. The cottage was lovely - comfortable and spotless. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or somewhere to escape from the world on the upper Tablelands, then Chilverton...

It was a pleasure to have you come and stay with us. So glad you were able to see just about every bit of wildlife that we have. Such a shame you were not fast enough with the shutter for the elusive tree kangaroo, next time. We look forward to welcoming you back when you next have time for an...

There has obviously been a lot of thought about amenities in the room - umbrellas, folding chairs [so can go down and sit to watch at the Platypus pool]. Host Gwen is lovely, caring and Sue (wife) said she gave her one of the best massages. This place is expensive but beautiful. We did think the restaurant meals, all lovingly...

Thank you for your kind words, it was nice to have you come and stay with us to celebrate a special time. As you state 'yes, we are not cheap' however we feel that our prices are within the scope of the market place. You do have to consider what we offer here. All meals are prepared on site, nothing...

We spent two wonderful evenings at Chilverton - a little piece of paradise rainforest near Ravenshoe. Our room was small but extremely comfortable and the sounds of the bush were delightful. It was great to wander along the little stream in the dusk and try to spot the elusive platypus - didn't quite make it, but there were some lovely...

We stayed in the platypus cottage right on the Millstream creek and this and the other cottage are certainly the pick of the accommodation. Gwen has put a lot of attention to detail in these cottages with dog bowels, dressing gowns and sarongs etc. to make the stay relaxing and enjoyable. There is a BBQ on the deck if you...

I stayed here only as I was working in the area. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped. It was fine although my room was so dark and had no aspect quite depressing really but I think other rooms maybe better on aspect. For a night or so it was fine and I didn't eat in here and note other reviewers...

Stayed here because it advertises as pets welcome - which they certainly are. Stayed in an apartment with a well fenced yard and there is a fenced off-lead exercise area as well. The king size bed was the most comfortable I think I have ever slept in and the apartment was clean and cozy. Cooking facilities were pretty basic (microwave,...

We stayed in the Kingfisher Studio for one night on our way back from Karumba. The studio is very cosy and decorated with an eye for detail. We found it a bit small for two adults travelling with two suitcases, however it is perfect for an overnight stay. Dinner and breakfast were served in a beautiful dining room and Gwen...

I wasnt sure what to expect when I found Chilverton Cottages when I was searching for pet friendly accommodation. (This is usually quite a difficult task and usually results in the accommodation being better suited to fowl) What a GEM!! Very pet friendly - in fact its probably more designed with pets in mind. Fur babies are not only permitted...
