Lovely, lovely place. I felt like being home. I was looked after really well. I was given 200% by Marilyn, who looked after the place while I stayed there. Beautiful reclaimed wood furniture and other recycled items. Fossicking petrified wood was really fun. I´ll be back :)

Thankyou for so much your wonderful words. Marilyn is a gem! We couldn't have found a better person to be "us" when we escape for a few days. We look forward to meeting you next time and will make sure Marilyn pops in to say hello when you do!

Have just returned home following a weekend stay at this hidden gem! Booked the ‘River Cottage’ which backs onto Charleys Creek, and was a wonderful space to relax in quiet surrounds. Cottage itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Despite initial plans to head into town for dinner, we opted to enjoy a BBQ on the back deck instead, and likewise for breakfast the following morning. Shara was an extremely welcoming host, walking us around the property on arrival, and on hand to help with anything we needed. The rooms/cottages are eclectic; put together from all sorts of odds and ends, but that is exactly what makes this place so unique and special- everything is just right! Looking forward to making this our regular getaway.

What a great find. We found The Laurels purely by chance and so happy that we did.
Stayed here with my three children and they just loved it. Really, really unique. So much more personality than a regular hotel/motel. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back for sure.

What a great spot to stay - the hosts were so welcoming and the cabins are just magic - we had drinks and pizza around a fire and had a great nights sleep! Congratulations guys - great spot - the rustic appeal was just amazing

This is one of the most amazing and unexpected finds. We ended up staying an extra night and would have stayed longer if there were not others booked in. The atmosphere is so relaxing and rustic.Meals are also excellent.

Room Tip: There are a variety of rooms and cabins available.
