Our recent trip to the Granite Belt included two nights at Accommodation Creek Cottages. Located just a few minutes drive from Ballandean, the cottage was a perfect antidote to a stressful city week. Curious kangaroos surveyed our arrival and kept us company, from a safe distance, over the weekend.
Inside our cosy cottage was a well equipped kitchen, sitting area with television and dvd and a cd player. There was even a coffee machine and a stash of coffee in the fridge.
Coming from sultry Brisbane, it was a surprise to discover the night was just cool enough to light the fire - in November!
The fridge included some fine Granite Belt produce - local cheeses from Granite Belt Dairy, condiments to match and some wonderful strawberries, cherries and apricots. How long since you have bitten into an apricot and juice has run out? Suttons Apple juice and gourmet yoghurt from Toowoomba were the finishing touches. There's even a barbie in the back yard!
The bed was comfy and the robes thick and fluffy. Chocolates and port were other touches that made the stay extra special.
