The Spotted Chook Ferme Auberge is a stunning french style B&B situated on 176 Western Avenue, Montville, Queensland and is wonderfully hosted by Leroy and Jane. You arrive and Leroy gives you a little tour of the place to tell you where everything is, and show you to your room (We stayed in the LOFT room and next time we are going to try AMELIES).
Your room includes a continental breakfast, with freshly baked pastries and muffins, home made jam and muesli, bread, yoghurt and fruit. Leroy will even make you a barista coffee.
We also decided to pay extra for a cooked breakfast on Sunday Morning (we went to breakfast in our PJ’s and dressing gowns, so decadent) Owen had a herb and mushroom omelette and I had bacon eggs benedict, the hollandaise was even home made and everything was delicious.
The LOFT is the largest room (apart from AMELIES which is a seperate cottage) and sits above the other rooms. it has a very comfortable queen size bed, beautiful claw bath,
and plenty of places it sit and read,
or just relax and look out on the scenery! We spend every afternoon on the balcony watching the birds and enjoying the changing of the sky at sunset.
Mr N is one of those people that works really hard and finds it difficult to stop, so we have to schedule time away (sometimes a staycation) every 3 months to stop. We plan things to do and make sure we have fun and enjoy life. This trip was because a dear friend of mine was getting married and it just so happens he was marring another beautiful friend… How good it that!
We decided that we should make it in to one of our breaks and because it was winter that always means a fireplace.
I got online and the spotted chook stood out. They do you a really great deal (CLICK HERE) if you ring them direct instead of going through those other places and will match any price (in fact, I got my room for cheaper than booking.com or trip adviser).
They have lots of wonderful communal places, with games and cards or you can just sit and chat, or borrow one of their many DVD’s if you just want to zone out.
The Property is situated on 100 acres and Leroy encouraged us to explore, so we went for a very long walk up and down hills. This photo is a long way away and is on the maxim zoom 🙂 We didn’t realised how large it was until we saw it from far away!
we discovered a beautiful little rainforest
and a very friendly cow that liked to have behind her ears scratched.
Mr N and I had such a fabulous time staying at the beautiful place, we can’t wait to go back next winter. We did lots of fabulous things, including country drives, a fabulous dinner at the Long Apron on our 4 days away, a visit to Malaney Dairies as well as plenty of resting. I can’t wait to tell you all about them in subsequent posts.
If you are interested in a stay with Leroy and Jane pop on over to their website to have a good look, but definately give them a call on 0438 544 296 or (07) 5442 9242 for a better deal than you can get online, it is worth it and say hi to them for us!
