Pencil Creek Cottages

64 Johnson Road, Mapleton, Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland

We have 3 fabulous cottages located on 12 acres of sweeping landscape in Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland, approximately 90 minutes drive from Brisbane CBD. 

The cottages are fully self contained, having a kitchen, bbq, private deck, smart tv, log fire, air conditioning, spa bath and a beautiful four-poster, queen size bed.


They are completely secluded and separate from each other, each having private parking. They are quaint, spacious and have a warm rustic charm. The kitchen, lounge and sleeping area is open plan, with a separate bathroom.

We have a main house as you enter the property, with the cottages located further down a short road towards the creek (Pencil Creek).

The terrain falls gently down towards the creek at the bottom of the property and has easy access. The creek feeds Mapleton Falls, just a short distance away and a good place to visit for a short, scenic walk in the rain forest. We also have two dams with a fire pit and seating next to it, along with a one par three hole to practise your pitching. The dams have many fish and you are welcome to try your luck and catch a fish (but must be released).

Not too far away there many incredible walks varying in distance and terrain types. We are on the doorstep of the Sunshine Coast’s ‘The Great Walk’, which runs from Baroon Lake in Montville, up into Mapleton National Park. The magnificent Kondalilla Falls is along the way, and a dip in the water on a hot day is tempting. We are a short drive away from many interesting settlements and towns such as: Montville, Maleny, Eumundi, Yandina, Flaxton, Buderim, Noosa. The beach is a short drive away should you want to visit the ocean as well as the forest.

If you are a cyclist, Phil will be happy to recommend cycling routes in the area depending on fitness level and riding expertise. We have undercover cycling racks if you wish to use them.
