Experience the mystical beauty of the Glasshouse Mountains at Glass on Glasshouse. The secluded cottages are set in a 20 acre mango orchard (which is home to a mob of wild kangaroos) and is surrounded by farms and forestry plantations.
These beautiful and modern architect-designed self-contained cottages feature floor-to-ceiling glass with wonderful mountain views. The bedroom features a comfortable king-size bed (or two singles if requested) and the centrepiece of the bathroom is a gorgeous freestanding spa bath. For those romantic winter nights there’s a beautiful two-sided eco-smart fire, whose warmth and flickering blue flames can be experienced from the bathroom as well as the lounge.
A daily breakfast basket is included. There is also an onsite café which is open every day except Mondays and Tuesdays and has a tasty menu of home-baked lunches and cakes as well as locally grown coffee, and is an open setting with great views of the mango orchard where the kangaroos usually sleep.
If you feel like cooking there’s a kitchenette with microwave, fridge, Smeg hot plates and a dishwasher and then there’s a BBQ on the large deck where you can sit and watch the kangaroos, or listen to the sounds of the kookaburras and black cockatoos. For entertainment the cottages also offer internet access and have a Blu-Ray DVD player, high definition LCD TV and a Hi-Fi system with an iPod dock. For your comfort there’s reverse cycle air-conditioning/heating. Washing and drying facilities are also available.
Marvel at the myriad of wildlife sounds at night, count the millions of stars, relax on the large deck, take an indulgent spa, listen to the rustling of the leaves in the trees and become closer to nature. An ideal place to escape for those who just need to relax.
Unfortunately, because there’s a lot of local wildlife pets aren’t allowed. Please note that the cottages are non-smoking inside.
