Pamper yourself with a massage…

Many of Secrets guests like to enjoy a massage as part of the relax, rewind and reconnect experience of staying in our beautiful treehouses. We have sought out the very best massage therapists in our region and made arrangements with them to come direct to your room… so you don’t even have to get out of your bathrobe!

Our experienced Massage Team of Angela from Touch of Power (0407 136 794) and Marnie from Temple Wellness and Massage (0481 846 064) look forward to helping you with your specific problems. Angela has been offering a professional service in the hinterland for 20yrs,  and Marnie has recently taken over the Temple Massage team. All our therapists are able to do singles or couples massage and offer you different packages and treatments designed to pamper, re-energize, and work away the knots and stresses that plague us in our perpetually busy lives.

How can you book? We ask that you book direct with the therapists who we have made arrangements with. Their contact details are found on our useful links page under the ‘About’ heading on Secrets on the Lake website. More information about their special packages can be found on our Massages page under the ‘Special Extras’ heading on our website. We find it less complicated if you book direct to arrange a mutually suitable time and in general it saves you paying the GST we would have to charge if booked through our business.

Blessed Rain

In recent times, there has been  a drought particularly here in the catchment of Lake Baroon. Any serious rain has seemed to bypass us and due to SEQWater siphoning off large amounts of water South to other communities and to Brisbane, we had been left with a sorry excuse for a water supply dam. However, the recent rains have helped to improve the water level as well as give a thirst quenching drink to our rainforest and gardens. For the past 12 months George has been working to bring our gardens to a higher level and with the help of Phil and Jeremy our maintenance guys, he has got them to an awesome standard. To top it off our son Rob has rebuilt the jetty and we have been waiting for it to get its feet wet. It is a stunning job!

The Joy of Anticipation or Planning Your Annual Holiday

The Joy of Anticipation or Planning Your Annual Holiday Being in charge of a business often means you tend to neglect your own holiday needs. Over the years, the most memorable breaks have been the ones we planned and looked forward to. A decision was made, months out, choosing a time slot in what for us was a quiet time of the year. Itineraries were developed, money set aside, flights booked and accommodation chosen. Then, we sat back and looked forward to the time we packed our bags and were on our way. From then on it didn’t matter what happened, how busy or tired we became, what problems arose, we were going to have a break and the feeling of happiness in the decision and certainty was there buoying us up, no matter what happened in the meantime.

June is celebration month

It is the beginning of what is officially winter when we enjoy wearing our winter clothes at night but the days are glorious, warming up and wind free. George will spend loads of time gardening and the maintenance guys will enjoy the outdoors and not need to seek shade. Guests will be noted trekking off to the Kondallila Falls or, wandering stick and picnic in hand, exploring the bush on the way to the Obi Obi Gorge and The Lake Baroon Lookouts.

Secrets is not just a place to stay ….It’s an experience of a lifetime.

A stay in one of our treehouses is like living in a work of art with all the elements of design. A conflagration of all the senses. Each artist craftsman has been given the luxury of creation within a special theme. So for example Dragonfly has not only one example of a dragonfly but 29 physical examples…flying out of the carved wood… made in tiles like jets with fascinating jet streams… created lifelike in stained glass and …..the piece de resistance in ironwork behind the bed. And I can wax lyrical about everyone of our treehouses.

Bruce Hume began making jewellery when he was 15 years old. Now he is the owner of Gold River Jewellers at North Lakes. Bruce is also a qualified helicopter pilot so he merged his two passions and created ‘Unique Proposals’. He offers packages where he can make an engagement ring and then fly guests to a romantic location so they can pop the questions.

“parkrun” at Secrets on the Lake Montville Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

A much loved guest Maarten Kamp and his lovely wife Marie-Claire visit Secrets regularly at this time of year. Over the years, they have shown a lot of interest in bushwalking and running. More recently they have tackled the steep hill, known as The Narrows Road that is the access road to Secrets. Yesterday Maarten, who we understand is a member of  “parkrun”, ran the hill in 8.5 minutes. He tells us that the run to the telegraph pole opposite Montville Mist spring water factory is the warm up and from then on he is into the serious stuff, part of which is a category 4 incline run. Obviously, to complete the run you must cross the road to touch the direction signpost on Western Avenue! George and I were very impressed and have awarded him a Certificate of Achievement for breaking the record for this run.

Weddings at Secrets on the Lake Montville

What’s a wedding About.

It seems to me that choice of a wedding venue and style of wedding is terribly important. However, the meaning of the day is more important. I have often said I could be happy living or even working anywhere as long as it is with George and I knew my little family unit was safe and content. I have put this to the test. When I was teaching I worked in quite isolated places and when we have been travelling likewise. We lived and worked a small farm, under the lake now , with a very tight budget but an amazing lifestyle.

About Aldy’s Name

I was born on 9th June 1944. My Mother said that in the early hours of that morning my Dad raced her to the hospital in Dalby. It was freezing and they were bundled up with blankets as there was no air con in those days not even a car heater. That came later. At one stage they considered the name Diana, but, in the end named me for a family friend Aldyth Butler and a gentleman Mr Lee who had been good to the family in the past. Pronounced “Al…dith”
