Rose Gum Cottage is a private one-bedroom cottage. It provides peace and relaxation on our property, Turkey's Nest, a registered wildlife refuge, surrounded by pristine rainforest.
From the warm handcrafted wood finishes, large attic bedroom, cosy fire and relaxing bath, everything is provided for a romantic escape. We take pride in the homely atmosphere, tasteful decor, attention to detail, and the personal touches of flowers, candles and chocolates.
Close to cafes and National Park walks.

The space

Rose Gum cottage is one of two delightful, private, self-contained cottages, as well as a luxury B&B suite, on our beautiful property at Mount Glorious, just 45mins from Brisbane city CBD. Each is designed to provide the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. It is a perfect place to escape the bustle of everyday life.

Our romantic Rose Gum Cottage (sleeps 2 + child) has one bedroom (with a queen bed, plus a day bed suitable for a child), bathroom with claw-foot bath, full kitchen, living and dining room with fireplace, and a verandah overlooking the forest. Rose Gum Cottage has a delightful rustic charm, combined with hand-crafted details, featuring all the modern conveniences you would expect to make your stay comfortable.

A wide variety of native birds come down to feed on the verandah, making this a great spot for photography enthusiasts.

Mount Glorious is surrounded by D'Aguilar National Park. There are beautiful walking tracks through both rainforest and gum forest. At 620m above sea level, it is cooler than Brisbane in summer, and can get quite cold and misty in winter - a good time to sit in front of the fire with a glass of wine and a good book!

Mount Glorious village has several cafes for daytime dining. A beautiful sculpture garden, in a rainforest setting, is open on Sundays. Day trips in the Brisbane Hinterland take you to Fernvale, Esk, Wivenhoe Dam, Dayboro and Mount Mee.

In addition to Rose Gum Cottage, see our White Gum Cottage (sleeps 4) under our separate airbnb listing "Rainforest Cottage close to Brisbane", and
The Macadamia Rainforest Suite under "Luxury B&B suite in the rainforest".

Unfortunately there is no public transport to Mount Glorious. Access is by car only. Parking is on site, beside your cottage.

We have operated our cottages for eleven years, and have many regular guests. We enjoy meeting the many travellers who come to Mount Glorious to relax and spend a quiet time together, and savour a forest environment so close to the city. Our cottages have a warm and welcoming atmosphere, to which we add features such as port, home made chocolates, candles and fresh flowers. Massages can be arranged in your cottage with independent operators - please ask for details.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was as described although closer to other buildings then we had assumed from the secluded description. It was clean and contained all the amenities you could possibly need and the bath and wood fire are wonderful features. It is definitely worth visiting the Mt Glorious area and I would definitely recommend staying with Rosemary & Russell!

Great location for a romantic getaway. Was greeted warmly by Russ and then left to our own devices. They even had a fire lit for our arrival, everything was just perfect.

We loved the privacy and being able to sit in front of a fire and spend the day in our pj's listening to music, reading and drawing. Watching the bird life coming into feed also provided some great photo opportunities. We consciously wanted to spend a quiet time but there is also lots to do in the area and we intend returning and exploring the many walks and lookouts.

Rosemary & Russell's cottage was absolutely perfect for a quiet weekend to relax and unwind. The place has a kitchen with enough equipment to cook full meals, the balcony is secluded and looks over the forest, the cottage is decorated beautifully and had wonderful little touches all around. There is a fireplace and bed warmers for cold nights and really good CD's to relax to. My partner and I had a wonderful stay - definitely recommend !!

We had a lovely weekend in Rose and Russell's cottage. Rose was quick at responding and super accommodating. Would definitely recommend their cottage for a very quiet weekend away.

We have run our holiday cottages outside Brisbane for seven years. Here we are close to the city, yet a world away! We have lots of repeat visitors, who come to enjoy the tranquility of the mountain, the bird life, the bush walks and the fresh mountain air.

We live on site, and are available should you need anything during your stay.

Rose speaks reasonable French, and some German.
