We thoroughly enjoyed your peaceful haven here at Cedar Pocket. The views are wonderful, the ambience so peaceful and the cottage all that one could hope for. The breakfasts each morning were amazing – those special little touches everywhere were much appreciated. Thanks for your hospitality and warmth.

For a relaxing stay you can do no better. Pam and Mike are lovely people and excellent hosts who go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. we had an awful drive up from Brisbane on a Friday afternoon but were greeted with smiles and a few bottles of home brew. The effort Pam made with our 2 kids and involving them in feeding the animals was amazing as was the hand delivered breakfast. all this topped off with multiple platypus viewings (pam came to let us know when they were some about) a beautifully presented cottage and numerous activities that we could do as a family. (the kids especially loved the quirky trial).

Thank you Pm and Mike for allowing us to enjoy your patch of heaven. You’re both such generous hosts. [J] fell in love with Coco! The breakfasts were amazing. We will be back.

Cedar Brae will recharge your batteries - Pam and Mike's hospitality and friendliness was fantastic, and so refreshing. The quietness and serenity of Cedar Brae was so invigorating. Access to kayaks and other activities kept us and the kids busy and allowed us to explore. We saw plenty or wildlife along with the farm animals. The highlight was following a platypus in the early morning in the kayaks while it was feeding in the lake. Morning breakfast provided by Pam was delicious and healthy, home-made bread and eggs from the chooks. Beautiful jams!

Mike and Pam are exceptional hosts. Cedar Brae is so relaxing and tranquil, the perfect place to have a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. So many things to do, the children were never bored! Will definitely be recommending Cedar Brae to family and friends.

From the moment you arrive, you feel right at home in Mike and Pam's cottage. When you arrive, Pam welcomes you like the long lost mother that you never had. She's soooo heart warming and made sure that we have a good time at her cottage without encroaching on our personal space. You can see and feel the love that Pam has for every single animal in the farm including the amazing Sam which is the cutest dog ever. Also the breakfast spread that Pam provided each morning ..... one word .... wow!!!! For a family that doesn't eat bread that much, we devoured the freshly baked loaf of bread each breakfast. The home made jams is amazingly tasty too. You can expect to do tons there with the kayak or canoe or like us, just relax and not do much except spend time with Pam, Sam and the animals.

Wow! A truly magnificent place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Mike and Pam’s CedarBrae Cottage is a warm, cosy, clean and tidy retreat. Plenty of thoughtful touches that add to the experience, from the delicious preserves and fresh baked bread for breakfast to the artistic nature walk, the canoes to paddle on the pond, the golf tee through to the fire pit for roasting marshmallows and watching the stars, Mike and Pam have thought of it all. The farm is conveniently located 15 minutes from Gympie and a short drive of about 30 minutes to Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach, and Freshwater Lake. Thank you for the wonderful memories, and like so many others, we hope to back for another visit soon.


Anthony                                Jan          

Peaceful and relaxing with nice activities for the kids; canoeing, feeding al pacas, getting fresh eggs from the chicken coop or toasting marshmallows at night...


Luke                                       Jan                    Air BnB

Pam and Mikes property is just stunning. Everything about it was unreal. Such welcoming and warm people and a beautiful property. Pams breakfast is the real highlight !!


Michele                                  Dec                   Air BnB

From the moment you arrive at Cedar Brae you are transported to a country oasis of relaxation and charm. Pam and Mike make you feel more than welcome, it’s like holiday if with old friends that give you probably to enjoy family time and are around to help if needed. The breakfast tray with fresh eggs and bread and homemade jam was a treat each day. We looked forwarded to the evening chores, our toddler was welcomed and encouraged to help out, which made this stay magical in her eyes! We loved the country quiet, canoe to paddle in and the use of the pool to cool off on a hot afternoon. The evenings were cool enough to enjoy a fire and watch the birds around the dam, just perfect! We had the best time and highly recommend a stay with Pam and Mike.

Thank you, Mike and Pam, for all the hospitality. Yours is such an amazing place for us to enjoy. Specially, it is a great experience for our baby with all the animals – especially ‘Sam’ !


Tim                                         Dec                   Air BnB

This stay was so far above our expectations, it truly was a dream stay. We could not rate Mike & Pam’s stay more highly! It was 5 stars...dare I say 6 stars thanks to Pam’s freshly baked bread, homemade jams and freshly laid eggs in the morning. We loved kayaking around the dam, feeding the alpacas and lounging by the pool. Mike and Pam were the most welcoming hosts I have ever encountered on Air Bnb. Thank you and we will be back!


Lana                                       Dec                   Air BnB

Mike & Pam are absolutely wonderful, highly recommend this stay, so peaceful and everything I was looking for, for a calm get away


Jennifer                                 Dec                   Air BnB

Our stay at Pam and Mike’s exceeded every expectation. They are such lovely hosts and was great to get back in touch with nature for a girl’s weekend away. The cleanliness, comfort, and thoughtful little touches such as home-made bread and lovely jams. Lovely to sit by the fire and go on the ‘quirky’ little bush walk on the property. They made us feel very welcome and we will definitely be coming back! Thanks again.

We had a lovely stay and look forward to spending time here again in the future. The kids thought it was “amazing”


Anna                                      Dec                   Air BnB

If I could give this place 6 stars I would. Mike and Pam are warm and sincere people who genuinely care that you have a nice time. The farm has nice views over the water and the accommodation is a stylish Queenslander. We all loved the animals and the boys had a great time kayaking. Breakfast was delicious. A big thumbs up from us.


Gisselle                                 Dec         

A great place to unwind and enjoy the simple things in life. Pam and Mike were so warm and welcoming. We loved our time at Cedar Brae and will most definitely return.
