'The Dales'

We want your stay to be about you, and your enjoyment

We believe we are so blessed to be living in this beautiful corner of the Sunshine Coast. When considering moving north from Brisbane several years ago we did not know Cooran even existed. The moment we drove across the sweeping valleys and hills of this ‘hidden gem’ we knew this was our home. During your time with us we

will always endeavour to make every effort to provide you with quality, wholesome produce in all your meals. For example, our local butcher only sells beef that he guarantees is locally grown, grass fed and hormone and antibiotic free. This is the beef that makes it to your plate. We grow seasonal fruit and vegetables in our own garden beds and orchard and continue to increase our range and volume. Produce that we are unable to grow or produce we source

from local growers where possible. We want you to feel that your stay with us is an experience that will continue to draw you back. Enjoy a delicious cooked breakfast and other tasty meals; a bottle of quality wine with a prepared cheese platter on the patio. Relax and read a ‘bestseller’ by the pool or under a shady tree; take in the captivating views from the alfresco lounging area; or stroll through the grounds. This and so much more awaits you…
