Making a difference…

By January 21, 2019 No Comments

Sometimes we all wonder if what we are doing makes a difference? It is so lovely when life gives you a situation where you are reminded of the impact we can all have on one another. Recently I attended a seminar at Visit Sunshine Coast and was touched to find that the seminar leader had honeymooned at Secrets on the Lake and could not speak highly enough of the experience. But the icing on the cake was when I was leaving the event, much to my excitement, one of the ladies from the tourist team facilitating also approached me warmly, and said exactly the same thing! You should’ve seen my smile!


George and I have been creating our dream of Secrets for a long time. When we first opened our doors 25 years ago there were only 15 businesses in the hinterland incorporating Montville, Maleny and Mapleton. We all knew and respected each other, and we met and networked and had fun. Now I believe there are well over 150 businesses and add Air BNB into the mix and things have changed a lot over the years. However, our approach has never changed (unless, hopefully it was for the better). For us its all about the lovely details and thoughtful extras. When you arrive at Secrets on the lake, you don’t just get to stay in a luxury treehouse… you receive our complimentary offerings of a luxury breakfast basket with bottle of wine, home-made scones with jam and cream on your arrival, and croissants or muffins to top up breakfast each morning.


Our focus has always been to create the best, most magical experience for our guests, and every detail and feature of our treehouses has this experience in mind. We were the first business in this area to do a luxury BBQ hamper for our guests, and then a honeymoon package… and an escape package followed. Over the years we have put together some romantic and unique extras you can add to your stay to make it suit your personality. Now you can propose in rose petal words and trails, amidst luxury chocolates, cheese platters and celebrate the ‘YES” with a private restaurant prepared meal for 2 in your luxury treehouse. Its your choice!


We would be our pleasure to share Secrets with you as well. Just takes a visit to our website or a quick phone call to our office where the Secrets team will help you. And if you see me in the street please don’t hesitate to come and say hello… I’m still wearing my smile from the lovely comments at the seminar!
