[From Cottage Guest Book]

Thank you for being the people you both are – so kind, helpful and thoughtful… I could go on. The animals are so happy in their home here. I watched them daily and could see how much they enjoyed their home. Amazing place here. Breakfasts were amazingly fresh. God bless this place and you both.

Thank you for being such great hosts. The breakfasts were so nice, especially the bread, butter and jam. The fruit salad was so fresh. The cottage is a credit to you both – filled with many nostalgic items for a girl raised in the country. We will be back at another time to visit and stay.Lovely weekend with great hosts.


Charisse & Family                August   

Best Farm stay Ever Our hosts, Pam and Mike, gave us such a warm welcome. The cottage was clean and the kitchen was very well equipped and provided everything we needed to prepare meals. Beds were comfy. We loved the special treat of eggs, bread and berries for breakfast and dining al fresco. Our 5-year-old loved exploring the property, feeding the chooks, alpacas and ducks, and the open spaces for playing ball and frisbee. The fire pit at night was pretty special. An off the grid heart filling weekend getaway.

Pam & Mike are the most wonderful hosts, with such warm country hospitality.
CedarBrae is just beautiful and we had a blast exploring this lovely spot.
Pam & Mike went above and beyond, cooking up delicious treats, keeping our boys entertained with feeding the animals and making a fire pit each afternoon.
So much thought has gone in to all the little details and we’ve enjoyed every minute at cedarbrae. We will certainly be back!


Lis & Family                          July         

Our time at CedarBrae was absolutely amazing! We loved everything about it. We highly recommend.

The cottage and surroundings are so peaceful. Beds are super comfortable and Pam's fresh baked breads are delicious!! A highlight for us was cannoning at the lake and spotting the platypus.

Thank you for hosting us at your beautiful place. The cottage is perfect, comfortable, clean and cosy. We loved the walk along the edge of the dam finding all Mike’s clever creations and of course the beautiful animals. You are both lovely people and we will be back. Thankyou so much. P.S. The bread and jams were awesome!


Rylie & Family                      July         

[From Cottage Guest Book]

Pam and Mike, thank you so much for an absolutely beautiful stay. You accepted V as if you had known her for years. She loved feeding all the animals and getting to know you both as if you were family! Your hospitality has been exceptional and I cannot wait to spread the word back home! We will definitely be back! We will miss you guys and all your wonderful animals and especially your fresh baked bread, sweet jams and your deliciously scrumptious biscuits! Thank you again.

Spent two nights at Mike and Pam’s gorgeous cottage style property around 15 mins from Gympie town centre.
The farm is an absolute delight. Your free to roam as you please, interact with the animals- especially with Sam the Kelpie. There are one or two hidden treasures in the nearby lake, but it’s best not to say here what that might be- come and find out for yourselves!
The hospitality was second to none. Both Pam and Mike have infectious personalities with plenty of stories and knowledge of the surrounding area. Watching the sun set over the nearby hills with the fire pit in full swing and a cold beer made for a beautiful end of the day. Then the morning surprise of a freshly cooked loaf of bread and fresh fruits/ farm eggs was a lovely way to start each day.
Can’t more highly recommend this little gem of a property. The cottage is stunning. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the hosts are second to none. We are already planning our return trip

Pam and Mike, we loved the canoe and everything else you showed us. Your beautiful farm as well as your animals – Sam and Daisy and Cocoa with Camille, Matilda and (Moffat), the ducks, the chooks, the cows, 3 platypuses and Popedom. Mum and Dad loved the tranquiity.


Esther & Family                    July                   Air BnB

A beautiful quaint family friendly stay with very approachable, lovely and genuine hosts, who take pride in their animals, hospitality and their property. This is our second stay at Cedar Brae. The breakfast was better than we remembered- and it was amazing the first time! Our kids loved the alpacas, cows, chickens, ducks, Guinea fowl and of course Sam the farm dog. Great family memories were made roasting marshmallows, canoeing in the dam and feeding the animals. The rooms are generous in size and the couch and beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and appliances. Pam and Mike are thoughtful with finer details such as fresh flowers in each bedroom, additional outdoor entertainment options (golf, balls, cricket gear) and impressive labelling of fire wood stock. We love Cedar Brae and would recommend it to families with young kids to mid primary age.

We loved our long weekend country stay. The environment, scenery, animals and hosting is so wonderful. All your touches like the fresh food, the ‘quirky trail’ and the cottage are delightful. See you again.

Thank you for your warm and generous hospitality. We enjoyed a wonderful time staying here with you, paddling on the lake, spotting the local echidna (‘Stevie’), feeding the alpacas, the chooks and sitting by the fire-pit at night provided great memories for the children and adults alike. We thoroughly enjoyed a little piece of your paradise here. With gratitude and warm wishes.

What a wonderful week! Mike & Pam, thank you so much for your hospitality and sharing your Guest Cottage. The beautiful gardens, friendly wildlife and amazing views - not to mention a very peaceful, relaxing place and a cottage that feels warm & inviting. Highly recommend staying with Mike & Pam - we will definitely be back!

We escaped to the country in style. We have travelled the world and never experienced such quality and splendour. Mike and Pam did everything to make our stay a memory never to be forgotten; great hospitality yet we still had our privacy. Set on 6 acres yet surrounded by lake, this isa bird watchers’ paradise with platypus and echidnas easy to spot. When staying here we feel like we didn’t want to leave the premises, simply because beautiful. We stayed on and off for one month. Thank you, Mike and Pam.

Although we were away all day every day, working, we didn’t get to enjoy your beautiful property but the cottage was so well presented, clean and so comfortable. We both would like to share this place with our families some time down the track.
