Pencil Creek Cottages

Location: Mapleton, Sunshine Coast

Check In: 14:00|Check Out: 10:00
Hours: 7am to 7pm


We have three fabulous cottages located on 12 acres of sweeping landscape in Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland, approximately 90 minutes drive from Brisbane CBD. The cottages are fully contained, having a kitchen, bbq on request, private deck, smart tv, log fire, air conditioning, spa bath and beautiful four-poster queen size beds draped with an elegant mosquito net. They are completely secluded and separate from each other, each having private parking.

Cottage 1 has wheelchair access (there are no steps). Cottage 2 is mid-way down the property. Cottage 3 is closest to the creek a little further down the property.

We have a main house as you enter the property, with the cottages located further down a short road towards the creek (Pencil Creek). The terrain falls gently down towards the creek at the bottom of the property and has easy access. The creek feeds Mapleton Falls, just a short distance away and a good place to visit for a short, scenic walk in the rain forest. We also have a dam with a fire pit\and seating next to it.

Not too far away, there many magnificent walks varying in distance and terrain types. We are on the doorstep of the Sunshine Coast’s ‘The Great Walk’, which runs from Baroon Lake in Montville, up into Mapleton National Park. The magnificent Kondalilla Falls is along the way, and a dip in the water on a hot day is tempting.

If you are a cyclist, Phil will be happy to recommend cycling routes in the area depending on fitness level and riding expertise. We have undercover cycling racks if you wish to use them.
