Landmark Tamborine Mountain estate hits the market
The owners of a landmark estate in the Gold Coast Hinterland are seeking a new innkeeper.
Eaglemount Lodge, a 1920s Tudor-style guesthouse, has hit the market offering buyers the chance to own a piece of Tamborine Mountain history.
Scenic Road Properties agent Bernadette Brushe said it was one of the first guesthouses built in the area.
“The property was built in 1928 and built by the same builder as St Bernards, which is one of the most historic hotels on the mountain,” Ms Brushe said.
“During the Second World War it was taken over by the American army, which a lot of properties were as the base camp was down the road.
“They took the guesthouse over and used it as a base and had a lot of men staying there.”

Ms Brushe said it has now been completely renovated to offer modern-day living, yet it still pays homage to its heritage.
“It was all done with modern material but done in keeping with the era it was built in,” she said.
“The property faces north so the pool, breakfast room and main lounge room are drenched in sun most of the morning.
“The right side of the house where the other living areas are face east and have beautiful Gold Coast views.”
The property is currently being run as a bed and breakfast and wedding venue known as Eaglemount Lodge.
Prices start at $160 for a terrace or pool view room and go up to $360 per night for king garden view room.
“Over the years it has always continued to run a guesthouse, or a B&B as we know them now, or a residence,” Ms Brushe said.
“It’s a really versatile property, the owners are happy to sell it as a residence or B&B.”
“Everything is at your doorstep, you can throw away the car keys and never have to drive again.”
The owners, who have lived at the picturesque property for almost 12 years, are selling to downsize.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom property at 147 Eagle Heights Rd, Tamborine Mountain, has an asking price above $1.6 million.
