Barb was very accommodating and communication was very clear. The drive up to her property was absolutely magical. We felt really bad that she went glamping on her bday. She even shared her amazing carrot zucchini cake! Thank you barb & Pier for such a warm welcoming stay. Highly recommend. And cafe in tyalgum was amazing too!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Pinnacle Eco Retreat a lot and it was very relaxing. It was exactly as we expected after looking at the photos and Barb is a really welcoming host. Perfect place when you are trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a bit!

Me and my family had a wonderful time at Pinnacle Eco Retreat. We all found the place and surroundings very relaxing providing us with a much needed getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Barb and Piers, both very warm and friendly, and accommodating, made sure we felt comfortable and very much at home. Both were more than happy to show us around and introduce places for us to go. Overall we had a delightful stay at Pinnacle. P.S. Be sure to order up a meal or two from Chef Piers who's more than happy to whip up a storm in the kitchen with ingredients freshly handpicked from their garden.

We've spent a night there and it was absolutely peaceful. The house is very nice and clean, the sorrounding is spectacular and Barb and her son are very friendly hosts and nice people. We stayed in a room but next time will try the tent which looks a lovely setup. I can absolutely recommend the place if you want to be out of phone range.

Great unique experience staying in Barb's farm & special house. The farm grows lots useful and tasty things such as gotu kola, lychee, mango, lemon grass, etc. We saw wallaby jumping around. Barb cooked nice food. Highly recommended as an adventure in mountain.
