“Perfect Hunter Hideaway”
Reviewed 28 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

An amazing little find nestled in the hills behind Pokolbin, Amelie's is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The cottage is cute and well appointed, and the views are breath-taking. If you're up early enough you see the hot air balloons poking above the clouds and it feels like a different world. The herb garden was a lovely touch, as was the welcome by the friendly resident dogs.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Such a beautiful place. We've been twice (the first time was so relaxing we needed to go back) and are planning to go again soon. The first time it was raining and the fog/clouds over the mountains were soo relaxing, the second it was 33 degrees but the cottage was shady and cool. Secluded, clean, awesome kitchen/bathroom (especially the bath!), clean BBQ, incredible views, gets a great breeze. The owners are lovely and have really made something special. This is perfect for anyone wanting some peace and quiet with the luxuries of home. Can't wait to go back.

“Gorgeous cottage in a stunning location”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Amelie's is a short drive up the Pokolbin Mountain Road. It sits atop the rise and looks down towards the valley. It has to be one of the most beautiful and peaceful locations in the Pokolbin area. It is in a secluded setting below the main home with the bush on one side and the rural aspect of the farm on the other, but only a short drive down to all the attractions of the Hunter. The cottage is perfect for a couple with a comfortable bed, sitting area, table and chairs, fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom also with amazing views, small balcony and an outside area with a barbecue. Breakfast produce was supplied as well as condiments, tea and a coffee machine. The cottage was clean and tastefully furnished with some lovely little artistic touches. Sally is a warm and friendly host and left us to enjoy the wonderful place she and Greg have created but is only a phone call away if needed.
We were there during very warm weather and although there is an air conditioner there did not need to use it. The house is shaded during the hottest part of the day and cooling breezes blow up the valley. There are also very efficient ceiling fans. In winter it would be just as perfect as it faces north so would capture the sun and had a fireplace ready to go which would make it very cosy. We plan to return to experience this lovely relaxing place in a different season.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amelie's, such a peaceful location. It was great to arrive and just relax as everything as been thought of. Clean and tastefully decorated, quaint little details really added to the ambiance. We had a fantastic view of the New Year fireworks and had a scrumptious breakfast with the produce provided. We will certainly be back in the future and would like to thank you Sally for a memorable stay.

“Peaceful and private”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This property is truly very special. it's location is beautiful as you are on the edge of the mountain with the most beautiful view. Cottage is well appointed and comfortable for a couple wanting a special base for exploring the Hunter valley, or just to chill out and enjoy the peaceful ambience with only the birds for company. Owner Sally an artist, is very discreet giving you complete privacy. Plenty of food provided to enjoy that indulgent breakfast too. Care should be taken on the road up the mountain to the property due to wildlife that may be on it.
