What Our Past Clients Say...

Scrapbooking retreat

"The Old Laravale School was such a great place for our scrapbooking retreat.

So much space to work.

House is beautiful with antique furniture. The fresh baked bread, local jam & cheese, and lavender cookies was a lovely treat.

We were also fortunate to be there when the Scenic Rim Astronomy Assoc were meeting on the oval and got to gaze at the heavens through their telescopes. Very informative.

Owners are lovely."
