If you are a country music fan, then your ranch cabin will be wonderful. You will appreciate the country music style décor. The swinging saloon toilet doors and big bath will remind you of a western movie. The cabin was clean and you will love the open space, slate tile floors and wooden finish. Cabin 1,2 and 3 are near the pub and grill. Cabins 4,5 and 6 are more private away from the pub hidden in the trees. You will be entertained by live music over the weekend and be part of the festive pub vibe. On a weekend you would not need to cook food as the grill provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your comfortable bed is only 10m away from the bar and live music.

This is not a luxury honeymoon cabin with a spectacular mountain view in a beautiful rainforest. It is on the owners home property overlooking a small pond. The king size bed is wonderful and the cabin has a decent air conditioner. It is open plan and so you have no privacy when using the toilet, shower or bath. The windows around the bed have no curtains or blinds, however the plants outside do help block the view into the cabin. A small curtain would be nice. I would suggest using the pub toilet if you do not want to disturb your partner, or need a number 2. The cabin has no hanging space at all. Your clothes will stay in your suitcase on the floor or sofa during your stay. The TV is tiny with no Foxtel, however you may prefer the large TV in the pub. The cabin has no internet or wifi and so you will need to use your own data. Telstra and Optus worked fine on the first night however was very slow the second night. My Telstra modem worked better than Optus data however bandwidth went up and down and was 2.5 mb max. Apple Music worked well so bring a Bluetooth speaker.

Our cabin had a few items in the fridge when we arrived, however no price list of the items so not used. The local shop is 2 km down the road and has enough items to make breakfast and dinner, however expensive (It is closed after 4 pm). It would be great if you were given a discount voucher to use the shop when you arrive, especially if the ranch grill is closed. I would strongly suggest you buy food items before your stay and bring a cool box with ice bricks. The kitchen is basic, however does have a 2 burner gas stove which worked well. I bought a frying pan in Yeppoon as the kitchen only had pots. The kitchen is usable however not wonderful. You do not not need it if you buy food from the ranch grill or in Yeppoon.

All the cabins have a log fire which would be great during winter. This with the huge bath and a good bottle of wine would be romantic. Bring your own bath salts, bubble bath or oil. The cabin needs a mop as the bath does flood onto the floor. It would be wonderful if the cabin had a more romantic touch. A small box of chocolates when you arrive. An invitation to have a free drink with the owner at the bar. Flowers, candles and tissues would be nice. The cabin needs basic toiletry items often found in most hotels and motels. The toilet needs a sanitary bin and bags. I would have a curtain between the bathroom and bed to make it more private when needed. A rug on the floor in winter to make it really cosy and snug. The cabin has no blankets or extra bedding so bring your own, or ask the owner when you arrive. This was not a problem in January as hot.

The ranch does have a spa however was not used during my visit. It looked a bit run down and the foot paths between cabins 4,5 and 6 are overgrown. The Rainforest Range just needs a bit of love to make it an amazing stay. It is not bad at all however could be very good. The pool wooden deck needs paint and leaving old broken light fitting parts in the spa does not look good.

You will either love your cabin or be a bit disappointed. Bringing your own food and home comforts will make your stay much better. The cabin does not lock and so security may be a problem. The Rainforest Range could be an awesome weekend for you. Just be prepared before you arrive.

We had a wonderful time (unfortunately too short) at the Rainforest Ranch! Warren and his wife made a fantastic and peaceful place where you can listen to the nightlife in the rainforest after sunset. The cabins offer everything you need, are spacious and super clean!! BBQ is also possible. Although you might plan for self catering, we strongly recommend Warren‘s food! We had an outstanding dinner and the breakfast makes you skip lunch. The Ranch offers a pool and a Spa and canoeing is possible close by. Musicians are also welcome to play the guitar (preferably Country Music :-)). If we have the chance we will come back and can strongly recommend to anybody this wonderful place and the great people there.

There were some great aspects & poor aspects of this venue. The pool and spa were lovely and clean, and the pool temperature was rainforest perfect. A very small number of guests meant that swimming was usually a private experience. The owner acknowledged the fan in the unit did not work. This was most unfortunate as it would have been a lovely romantic experience having the cabin open while the rain fell. The shelf in the fridge fell down twice. Most importantly however was the poor hot water system. Showering required turning on the water, waiting for it to get warm, turning it off before it got cold, lathering up and then repeating for rinsing purposes. Cooking was discouraged inside the unit, and there was no frypan available. The outside BBQ had a sign on it threatening cleaning fees, and outside was hot, so we were reluctant to use it.

Our package included a New Years Eve dinner at Ferns Hideaway down the road (add $75 per person). Unfortunately after enjoying drinks with our resort hosts and other guests, upon arrival at Ferns we were separated from the group table and seated behind a brick wall, out of site of most of the other guests and the band, without airconditioning. We requested a refund and left without eating. The refund request was refused by our resort host as he had prepaid for the meal. He did however genuinely offer to swap seats with us, which was equally unacceptable. As business owners ourselves, we would have provided the refund (due to the fact it was part of the marketed package) and then approached Ferns and sorted out the problem separately. It was such a shame this was the flavour of our final evening.

Overall, the resort is probably worth the rate of $145 per night, but the package was a wrought. The owners, who were very friendly and hospitable, should also consider attending to the maintenance.

We were gifted this as an anniversary present with the Romantic option. BBQ tea, breakfast, cheese platter, wine and chocs. BBQ tea was awesome with salads provided, cheese platter nicely presented and again plentiful as was the breakfast supplies. Tea was at Ferns Hideaway Resort and included in the price. Meals at Ferns Restuarant were very nice but a bit pricey, atmosphere was great!
The cottages are well equipped and really nicely done. Private and comfortable. The setting of the ranch is picturesque and well maintained. Pool and spa clean and inviting.
Thanks for a relaxing break!

"Amazing its was the next best thing to New Zealand at the time"

I have been to a lot of places all over the world.To the lady I love organise this surprise hideaway 60th Birthday just for the two of us.It was the second best birthday present a man could ever wish for.We found the cabin very private,clean and had everything we needed. I loved the fire place and really enjoyed the pool and spa.We did a bush walk there was no water in the creek but it was still beautiful.The best part about this place for us was we were alone by ourselves with out a care in the the world.You just need time out for yourself with out friends,family or phones. This was my best birthday present ever.
Unfortunately now Im back in the real world.Thanks to the owners it was absolutely beautiful out of 100 I'll give you 121%
