Maleny Lodge, a new heritage boutique accommodation in the heart of the bustling town of Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, will open on May 30, having been lovingly restored by owners Andrew and Lucy Pink.
Maleny Lodge dates back to 1905, when it was originally called Rosedale, but was later renamed Maleny Lodge, and has provided accommodation ever since.
Andrew and Lucy Pink purchased the property in 2021, following the highly successful revival of a 1980s motel in Maroochydore and transformation into the stylish Loea Boutique Hotel.
