“Look no further this is outstanding accommodation at a great price!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The website information and pictures do this accommodation justice. The cabins are warm and exceptionally well laid out. Our cabin slept 6 people (bring your own bedding but extra doona's were on each bed). The wood fire was even lit and warming the cabin before our arrival. You cannot get more welcoming than that. The views from the cabins are spectacular. We were personally walked to the cabin and shown how to operate the eco features and given the full guides tour of the spectacular valley views as we went. Very personal, friendly and informative.

Fantastic accommodation not just for Jenolan Caves but for day trips into Oberon, Bathurst and NP walking. More than just weekend accommodation, this is great holiday accommodation. I researched well before booking and I'm glad I did. This accommodation is worth recommending.

We recently spent two nights at the Jenolan Cabins and it exceeded our expectations. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed. The fire was a real bonus and it was great that it was going when we arrived. There was plenty of wood for it too, and if we'd have run out plenty more around. The kids loved the cabins for a number of reasons. Firstly it had bunks. That's a real treat for our mob. Secondly, there was snow all around our cabin. First time the kids had seen that.Finally, there was plenty of grounds to explore. Consequently we were afforded time to read a book / newspaper in front of the fire whilst the kids were happy.The communal bbq was another aspect we enjoyed. We all loved it and will be back.

We have been going to the cabins every winter for many years. Robyn and Michael are always happy and helpful. The cabins are very comfy and cosy, a perfect place to just veg out with a bottle of wine and some yummy food. We always take the slow cooker with and have a hearty casserole, this usually does us for the 2 nights. The wood fire keeps the whole cabin warm. We have been there in all sorts of weather, warm, then fogged in, gale force winds and sleet and snow, all the weathers you expect in the mountains and what a place to view it all from. The views from the lounge and bedroom are fantastic.The trip out to Kanangra Walls is spectacular, a view not to bemissed. Oberon has some great cafes and Cobweb craft shop is great for jams, pickles arts and crafts, the bakery makes lovely homemade pies (sweet and savoury). The Jenolan cabins are
somewhere we'll keep coming back to for years to come.

We decided to stay here based on Tripadvisor reviews. The cabins are located on a hillside about 5km up a very steep hill from the Caves village. Our cabin was clean on arrival and we found it to be comfortable and spacious compared to other 2 bedroom cabins we'd stayed in. It was quite cold at night (due to the elevation) but the cabin had a very efficient log fire and the owners provided an unlimited supply of firewood. We all loved the fire and the children had great fun chopping wood. Our only real problem was with the cooking facilities. There was a microwave oven, gas grill and gas hob. There was no real oven and we hadn't expected this, so we had to replan our cooking program for the three days. We had been told that there were no supermarkets nearby, so we had brought all our food with us, expecting there to be an oven. Also every time we used the grill, the piercing smoke alarm (which was located very high up, almost directly above the grill) went off and the owners son was unable to do anything about this except to suggest we either cook on the BBQ or use the grill with all the doors and windows open.

The smoke alarm was so sensitive that it went off even when we tried to use it to warm up some croissants, so we ended up taking his advice and using the communal BBQ to do all our cooking. Luckily we had dry weather and it was actually very pleasant to cook and eat outside.

The information left in the cabins was useful and the owners were helpful and unobtrusive.

We would certainly stay at Jenolan cabins again.

We stayed here with other families and all enjoyed the communal BBQ area on a warm summer's night.

Very good value with double bunks and spacious rooms. The eco toilet took a little getting used to, but it was a good eye opener as to how much water we would normally waste in the city!

Friendly and helpful hosts and would definitely stay there again.

We really loved our stay at the Jenolan Cabins. They were very clean and had everything provided for self caterers to ensure they can put a decent meal on the table at the end of a wonderful day at the caves. That was the other good thing... the caves were literally just down the road. Our family would go back to Jenolan in a heartbeat and if we did, we would most definitely stay at the Jenolan Cabins.

I am normally an inner city 5 star hotel type but we decided to take the boys bush for the long weekend. The cabins are spotlessly clean and roomy enough given we didn't spend a lot of time there. Views are amazing and it is a very serene and relaxing setting. The decor is rustic but in good nick. If you are self catering, take along a good sharp knife, peeler and board. Oh and a colander. The ones supplied are no good, surprising given self catering is almost mandatory. If you like Your cup of tea from a mug, bring those as well, only glass tea cups supplied. Oberon is only 15 min down the road and we went to the pizza restaurant "the caves" which was great. Atmosphere lacking but well run and care put into the pizza. Also, don't forget to take a face washer and soap (not supplied either).
