Set in the hinterland of Tweed Heads, quiet, good facilities, good night sleep, great views, eagle feeding, walks, dog allowed inside and beds etc provided. Great place to chill, rest and spend time with your dog. Great games area, free DVD's, fenced outdoor run for dog and lots to do if you want and 20 min to Teed Heads.

Wonderful place to stay with or without a dog. We were dogless but very much appreciated the lengths that the owners had gone to to make travelling with your fur babies a pleasure. Lovely and clean and pleased we visited 🐶. Small conference centre too.

Fantastic setup, dogs allowed inside, fully fenced yard around the cabin, and if you prefer they will take your dogs into the kennels whilst you go out, staff could not have been more helpful, will definitely stay again

What a lovely place this is, so peaceful, so relaxing. The units are very clean and comfortable and have a great set-up for the dogs. Each unit has its own yard and a doggy door, which even our greyhounds mastered. It was lovely just being in such a beautiful area with our dogs. The huge dog run was great too....
