Sweetwater Cottage is on a 40 acre property with large areas of natural rainforest, and boasts one of the largest private waterfalls in the area with a bushwalking track and creek side picnic area. The cottage itself is surrounded by gardens and the grounds abound with native wildlife including a spectacular assortment of birds that feed here daily.

The large, covered outdoor entertainment area is perfect for family gatherings and celebrations and with the recently refurbished family annex we can comfortably sleep 16 adults.

A third bathroom and a fourth toilet have recently been added to cater for the additional sleeping accommodation.

This is the ideal location for large groups attending hinterland weddings or gathering for family celebrations.

Guests are encouraged to keep their noise levels down and fit in with the environment and the peaceful nature of the setting.

Ask about our special packages for small intimate weddings and renewal of vows. Accommodation and celebrant can be included.

Sweetwater Cottage is a delight to behold. It is truly a home away from home. Once here you won't want to go home.

The cottage is fully self contained with large well equipped kitchen, separate living areas, outdoor undercover entertaining area with bar-b-q, laundry and undercover car parking for 2 vehicles.

On the GROUND FLOOR you will find 2 queen bedrooms; and 1 bathroom and separate toilet with extra bunk beds recently added adjacent to the laundry.

UPSTAIRS is a delightful retreat with a queen size bed, large bathroom, kitchenette and spare couch that becomes an additional double bed. There is also a TV & DVD and fire place in this area.

THE ANNEX is a large room that has been set up dormitory style with 5 single beds as well as having its own TV with DVD. There is also one single bedroom with a single bed in this area. This area also has a shower room, powder room and 2 toilets.

The lounge room has a large screen TV near the fireplace and a DVD and the dining room table seats 10.

The outdoor area has a large wooden table with bench seats that comfortably seats10; there are also two smaller wooden tables that each seat four. Extra trestle tables and stack chairs are provided for large groups.

A barrow load of firewood is provided for the two fireplaces in the cooler months.

The property is wheelchair friendly.

From the moment you drive through the gate you know that you have arrived somewhere special. Everything is here! Come and enjoy!

This is the perfect place for large or extended families to stay together.

Although there are many interesting tourist attractions in the hinterland to entertain guests, sometimes you simply wish to relax and unwind without needing to drive anywhere. There are books to read, large screen TV to watch; sip wine by the fire; feed the birds and animals; have a picnic by the creek or take a bush walk to our waterfall.

There are separate facilities that would accommodate 3 families; teenage children or if you wish to bring elderly parents with you on holiday. This property is ideal for family reunions; extended family visiting the hinterland to attend the many wedding venues; or groups of friends wishing to holiday together.

The Hinterland is well known for its art galleries; restaurants; wineries; village shopping; antiques; bush walks; beautiful scenery; Maleny dairy & cheese factory. It is close to Australia Zoo if that is on your list of places to visit and 40 minutes to the nearest beach.

In 10 minutes you can drive to Maleny shopping village, Baroon Pocket dam and Gardiner's Falls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picturesque Property We had an amazing weekend at Sweetwater Cottage celebrating our daughter's 21st with family and friends. The property has amazing views, a waterfall just 500 metres walk away, 2 fire places with a large outdoor entertaining area. The fauna and flora are also spectacular. Everyone was blown away by this property. My daughter said that her birthday was just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a Family Getaway We stayed at sweetwater with our family for our wedding week and we were in love with the property the moment we arrived. Beautiful house, gardens, walks and hosts! The hosts made us feel so welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. We love that they have kept the 'homely' feel in this house with an awesome entertainment area! The family loved feeding the birds and being amongst the wildlife. We can't wait to book our next stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just WOW!!! We knew this was "the place" as soon as we started winding down through the rainforest driveway toward the house. My family and I had the BEST Christmas getaway at the Sweetwater Cottage. It was the first time we had come together in a while, and we didn't want to leave. EXCELLENT kitchen, stocked with all the utensils you would need for a Christmas Feast. The rooms were wonderful (especially the upstairs loft!), the beds comfy, and the children never ran out of things to do - from playing on the perfectly landscaped grounds, to visiting the waterfalls, to chopping wood, to feeding the birds. It mostly rained during our stay, which made the atmosphere even BETTER - watching the fog roll through the rainforest that surrounds the property was heaven! We honestly couldn't rate this place highly enough. And thank you to the incredibly generous, hosts. Exceptional hospitality! Highly Recommend this clean, comfortable, serene location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosy cottage in the hills Our family enjoyed our stay in the homely cottage. The fireplace provided great warmth and atmosphere, especially over a cheese platter and red wine. The grounds are lovely and the kids loved the walk to the creek and seeing the many birds and cows grazing in the rolling hills. The hosts made our stay more pleasurable with their great hospitality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots to like about this property Great for a family get together. The annexe needs an ensuite to be really great. Love the fire place. Owners are very friendly.
