Lovely property in a rural setting
Great getaway retreat
We all loved our stay. Such a beautiful home, We would have loved to know the history of the property.
Ruddles Retreat was built about 30 years ago by a chap called Bruce, who was at the time, an Anset airline captain. He brought his family up in the house before moving back to Brisbane. I found the house for sale about 10 years ago. The retired couple selling it found the garden too much for them and moved into Maleny. I set the house up for holidays. About 5 years ago, a young chap arrived on a motorcycle asking about staying there.. he turned out to be Bruce's son. He bought himself, his wife and mum and dad, who built the house, to stay for a weeks holiday. Bruce also planted all of the trees. I have a photo of the garden as an empty field back in the days.. I hope you'll make it back for another stay before long, it's a beautiful spot. Cheers, Stuart.
Lovely property and extremely easy checkin progress. Very much enjoyed my time and will be back no doubt!
great location, superb property
Just out of Malent town so quiet and private but convenient. Lovely property, we have been several times and always enjoyed a log fire in the lovely lounge. Coffee on front veranda in the morning for sunrise and the back deck in the afternoon for the sun!
The property is so beautiful and private and the location is perfect. It is far enough away from town to feel secluded but close enough for when you need.
