Atherton, Queensland
The Summit B&B is a four-bedroom 'Queenslander', with a wide inviting deck on three sides, giving panoramic views from all rooms. Situated next to an Environmental Park and surrounded by Mabi Rainforest, privacy from neighbours is assured and native wildlife abounds. The Summit B&B is situated in Atherton, on the Atherton Tablelands, approximately 1 hours drive from Cairns. It is a region of higher altitude hence a different climate to the coast. We call it naural air conditioning for a natural Wonderland.

Constructed and opened in August 2008, it is our new establishment, The Summit B&B (a separate construction to The Summit Rainforest Retreat), is available to be booked. Built in the classic 'Queenslander' style, with all rooms having access to a wide inviting deck, through French doors, it is self contained...

Staying at this location was such a blessing to us. John and Helen were incredibly understanding and generous. After realizing we had misunderstood the shared kitchen/living and pool areas, they kindly and very generously offered another solution which catered beautifully for our needs. We would highly recommend both the Summit retreat apartment and the Summit B&B. We ended up in...

We stayed for almost a week and were happy with our choice. The place is very clean, laid back and comfortable once you get the hang of everything. The big 10 yr old Queenslander is a great building. The interconnection with the other 2 parties that can potentially stay there at the same time is generally limited to morning breakfast,...

Management response:

Thank you for your positive feedback, great to hear you were nice and relaxed that's very important to us and what we're trying to do. We'd love to see you again. cheers john & helen

A nice place with lots of space, suited two families, a total of eight all up. The pool was inviting and the deck had amazing views. It made a great base station to visit the surrounding areas and sights. There are a lot of rules to follow, and when given the keys and told its a good idea to have...

Management response:

Very sorry to hear that you don't like rules and maybe your group needs to get together and provide a balanced overview of your stay as Donna & Julie said that they were happy at check out. What we find most distressing is that a number of things are not mentioned in your review. A phone call after dark to...
