The Spotted Chook & Amelie's Petite Maison

176 Western Ave., Montville, Queensland, 4560, Australia

Just over a mile from Montville, this whimsical, French-provincial-style B&B feels a world away with its picturesque country gardens and sweeping views over Obi Obi Gorge. Four rooms and a self-contained cottage (including spa bath) are furnished with a well-chosen mix of antique and hand-painted modern furniture; most have chandeliers, sofas, fireplaces, and balconies. The garden and its gazebo provide a tranquil haven, while the property's 110 acres of rolling hills and Rain forest—complete with the eponymous spotted chooks—beg to be explored. Decadent Australian-French fusion cuisine is served on Saturday evenings, with the menu changing seasonally and according to guests' preferences. The property's doting hosts can also arrange special in-room meals for guests, as well as massages, tours, and drop-offs to the start of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk. If traveling with children, book the Snowpea Suite, which has a children's annex. Contact the property directly for the best rates.
