Country School House

Family-friendly holiday home in Emu Vale
Frogs Hollow Country Retreat is a 150 year old restored country school once known as Emu Vale Stateschool. Sitting in 5 acres of manicured lawns and gardens dotted with huge 100 year old trees including a giant oak tree ( the faraway tree) English Cedars, poplars, liquid ambers and even 2 giant pines from Anzac Cove which were germinated by seeds brought back by the local boys who fought at Galopili in WW1. The home has fully screened surrounding verandas, high ceilings and even the original blackboard still adorns the main wall of the dining room. Beautifully appointed with feather sofa, leather wing chair in the lounge along with an indoor fire place. A lovely 4 poster bed makes the master bedroom very special. Brand new main bathroom complete with claw footed bath, new fully equipped kitchen with connecting stable door to the side verandah. The school even has the original school swings and climbing bars, a sports oval ( now perfect for horses!) en-suite off main bedroom, pizza oven under the oak tree, and even its own stone time capsule sitting amongst the rose garden. There is also a gorgeous white interior art studio complete with loft and double mattress, adjoining the carport (which was once the school play/ undercover lunch area) The hat and bag rack still there along with one of the huge blackboards from inside the school

5/5 Excellent

A lovely, cozy weekend!
My family and I had a lovely stay at Frog's Hollow. It is a charming property - beautifully kept and well cared for. The house was comfortable and clean, and well equipped for cooking and cozy family time around the fireplace. We made use of the outdoor area and garden, very big and lots of room to explore. You can reach both Killarney and Warwick by car if you want to explore by day, both lovely towns. We'll definitely be coming back. Thanks very much, Di!

Frogs Hollow Cottage
Located not far from Killarney, the old school house and property was very accommodating for our family. We enjoyed experiencing the Condomine River Crossing, the quaint and friendly township of Killarney, bush walking and just relaxing at the cottage. On a clear night star gazing is a must.
