Maleny Accommodation: Checking in to Highwood Park B&B Guest Lodge


Sharing is caring!

Are you looking for a peaceful, relaxing and beautiful place to stay?

Are you looking for hinterland accommodation with picturesque 360 degree views?

Well, stop looking and check out what we found for you!!


Highwood Park B&B Guest Lodge is located in the heart of the Bold Knob range. If you are coming up from Brisbane, the drive will take you only about an hour. Now, this place is perfect!!


I have mentioned already that it has 360 degree views and they stretch from the mountains, valleys and over the ocean from Mt Coolum to Moreton Bay Island. Beautifully located on top of the mountain, you will have privacy like no other.


The Guest Lodge:

The Highwood Park B&B Guest Lodge sits atop of a hill surrounded by 32 acre park-like rural grounds. The grounds are perfectly maintained by the owners. Large variety of trees, flowers and herbs make the gardens cosy, inviting and smelling divine.

The owners have put a lot of work into creating a very home-like stay for the guests, so you will feel more like you are visiting good friends or relatives.


The lodge has three suites available to stay in, all with their own private terrace and picturesque views.


In the main house there is a guest lounge where you can relax with a book next to the fire place or play some tunes on the grand piano. You can also choose to enjoy dinner in the most fabulous setting in the dining room. All areas are fancy, stylishly decorated and very homely.


We were told about some awesome future improvements that will be added to this already perfect Maleny accommodation, but you might just have to wait and see for yourself.

Our Suite:

There are three suites at the Highwood Park B&B Guest Lodge. The one we stayed in is called Balmoral. As you can see in the pictures below it is kinda fancy and we loved it!

The furniture throughout the lodge was carefully selected by the owners. You will not find new chairs or couches, but a beautiful variety of antique gems. Beautifully arranged rooms leave you feeling a little bit posh.


Even though the style of the room was very antique, there is a TV, DVD player and a massive collection of DVDs to chill out to in the quiet and relaxing evening. Well, you can do that, or you can spend a bit of time gazing at the stars from the hot Jacuzzi whilst sipping on a glass of bubbly. You get the picture.


All I can say is that we absolutely loved the little bit of posh feel to our suite. Peaceful, romantic and relaxing!


Talk about romantic. Breakfast served on your private terrace and what a setting!  We were delightfully surprised with the delicious and enormous breakfast. Tell you what, I would like to eat like that every day. Fresh eggs from the chickens that live on the grounds served with roasted tomato, bacon or eggplant, greens and home grown herbs on crispy bread. Local fruits and delicious yoghurts to change the taste. Selection of breads and croissants with freshly home made jams and relishes. To refresh, treat yourself to a coffee and freshly squeezed juice. I swear I missed something, there was so much.  And all absolutely YUM!!


Well, if that does not entice you already. The dinners at this amazing Maleny accommodation will. Home cooking with a taste and feel of a 5 star restaurant. That was our experience. Choose to dine in your room or in the main dining room. Stylish and elegant setting of the dining room includes silverware, crystal glasses, candle light atop a hundred year old amazing wooden table.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience!  I could explain what we had for dinner too, but I think I will leave it to your imagination. Dinners come at extra cost.

A Variety of Leisure Facilities:

If all the food talk got you a bit full by now, how about a relaxing walk around the gardens. You might also like to go swimming in the pool while you look over the never ending views or play some tennis on the private tennis court.


I think we did everything that was on offer at the Highwood Park B&B Guest Lodge and much more. Did I mention there is a library with plenty of choices of books and board games. Or maybe you would like to relax with a drink at the bar.

Well, nothing else to say here.. We loved it!!
