My passion has been to create an environment specifically for families and their pets to roam free in the country, where you can enjoy the excitement of living in a beautiful country home and relax in the tranquility of the rural views and amazing wildlife. It's a wonderful place for children to explore, feed the birds and cows, and to be able to create their own adventures.
Ruddle's Retreat can also simply be a place for a quiet romantic weekend for two, away from it all.
Ruddle’s Retreat is not just a place to stay in Maleny. It's a genuine country retreat experience that you and your family will remember for a long time and will definitely want to return to.
Ruddle’s Retreat is ideally suited for up to 4 adults and 2 or 3 children and there’s plenty of room for the dogs too. The one acre property is situated on top of the hill in a very quiet country lane only 5 minutes drive from Maleny town. Ruddle Drive is used by the locals for the early morning dog walks and has very little car traffic.
Ruddle's Retreat is equipped with more than everything you would need for your stay including a real log fire, an outdoor shower off the main bedroom, a BBQ and a Breville Grill for those 'cook your own' evenings on the 60 sqm deck. There's also a large screen TV, sound system and DVD player for the rainy days, and even a computer with free WiFi.
With an acre of land, amazing views back and front, and an abundance of native and floral colours, Ruddle’s Retreat is also a perfect venue for affordable weddings.
The Ruddle’s Retreat Guest Book comments and the five star reviews from my guests are priceless and I hope you’ll add to them. I know you and your family will have an amazing stay at Ruddle’s Retreat.
There's a little surprise for you when you arrive too.
