Enjoy your own private self-contained cottage surrounded by 250 acres of native forest with 4 kms of private walking tracks with abundant native wildlife. Full kitchen, 2 singles or 1 queen in BR, fold out in LR, washing machine and wood stove.

The space
The Birder's Cottage sits about 100 metres from our residence - The Mountain House. Acre after acre of the surrounding native bushland is being lovingly restored to encourage native wildlife. Whether you are a keen naturalist or just getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life you can enjoy the abundance of birdlife including White-eared Monarch, Owlet and White-throated Nightjars, Wonga Pigeons and Emerald Doves. Mammals which are regulars to the property include Koala, Gliders, Wallabies and a colony of Brush-tailed Phascogales.

There is one bedroom in the Cottage with either 2 singles or a queen bed and a couch in the living room that folds out to a full sized bed for flexibility in sleeping arrangements. The living space is open plan with sitting space, dining table and kitchen including full sized refrigerator and free standing stove unit. Coffee, tea, sugar and milk are provided plus you can find a few other staples in the kitchen.

Enjoy an afternoon on your private porch or have a glass of wine on The Mountain House veranda with great views overlooking Cedar Creek. On clear days you can even see Morton Bay.

Update - Based on guest feedback we have set up 'drips' in the forest to attract wildlife for photography. We now have 20 species of birds which regularly visit the water features.

Where you’ll be

Samford Valley, Queensland, Australia

The Mountain House sits on a ridgeline among acreage properties, so quiet and peaceful but also close to Mt Glorious, Samford Village, 15 min drive to the train line into Brisbane CBD (30 min train ride).

During your stay

We love to meet our guests and have a chat but also respect your privacy. So, feel free to come up to The Mountain House if you need anything or for some conversation.

Roger is a wealth of information of all sorts and a local wildlife nut. So, if you are looking for a place for a leisurely walk, more intensive hike or want to see the critters, just pick Roger's brain. He is happy to help with directions, mud maps to any target animals you may wish to target. He can provide you species lists too.

The back veranda of The Mountain House is a great place to enjoy breakfast or dinner. On weekends Megan can provide a cooked breakfast or dinner and on weekdays, breakfast hampers can be provided (meals not included in room rate). Just let us know when booking.
