Charming stay
Was out towards Kingaroy for a work trip and I will never stay in town motels again. This place is charming, comfortable and safe. As a solo traveler I felt right at home. Log fire, cool mornings and wildlife to make you enjoy your work trip enjoyable. Will stay again.

A Truly Fabulous Experience at Deshons Retreat
The accommodation has everything you could possibly need, and it is all to a very high standard. Clean, tidy, nicely decorated and comfortable with great views. We ordered the breakfast for both mornings, and it was a delicious hamper of fresh locally produced eggs, bacon, sausages, home-made baked beans, butter and Alex’s own beautifully baked bread. Cooking this breakfast was no problem at all with the large electric frypan. The electric bbq was also terrific for cooking the best sirloin steaks ever from the gourmet butcher in town. The accommodation itself is private and has a fire box, which was not cold enough to use, and air conditioning. The big louvred windows and insect screening allow for terrific cross-ventilation and the scent of the Aussie bush to come flowing in. The bed was comfortable, and the large windows made for great views while waking up with a freshly made plunger coffee (plunger and coffee supplied). Sitting outside at night with a glass of wine was the best way to view the magnificent night sky filled with thousands of stars. We cannot recommend Deshons Retreat highly enough, and the excellent communication with, and greeting from, Alex the owner. Thank you Alex! The experience was unforgettable and will be treasured for many years. We want to return!
