“Wonderful Getaway!”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

This place was absolutely great. The owners were lovely and very accommodating, from the start they made it very clear we could ask almost anything from them. The property is beautiful with many things to see and do and I would recommend to everyone, families and couples alike.

My husband and I had the pleasure of escaping the busyness of Sydney over Valentines weekend to Mystwood. Both of us were amazed at what a beautiful, refreshing time we had. We started off our trip by sitting in the spa staring at the clear starry skies. The next morning we were we brought freshly baked bread that was absolutely delicious, and the breakfast basket was perfect! The wine tour was fantastic and so were our afternoon dusk strolls. The beds were comfortable and huge, as was the DVD selection. Its very rare that my husband and I can agree on a movie to watch, but we both ended up sitting on the lounge enjoying movies that we both liked.

Words cannot express how special Mystwood is. Every step I took in that valley refreshed my soul, and the owners truly care about making your experience comfortable and memorable.
I highly recommend Mystwood to anyone who just needs to get away and breathe!

My husband and I needed to get out of Sydney for a weekend and stayed at Mystwood. Wow, what a peaceful weekend it was. The cabin was perfect, stylish yet cosy and the bed was so comfortable that we slept like never before. Woke up to the views of the bush and the sounds of the birds, so refreshed and relaxed. The home made bread and private outdoor spa was just a bonus. We really got what we came for and will most definitely go back when we have the urge to escape the city. Thank you Mystwood!

Quintessential Aussie bush escape but so close to Sydney and the hunter valley. The spa is perfect after a hard day touring the wineries. Explore the property watch wild wildlife from the dam. Have a pub lunch 5 minutes down the road at wollombi village. We will definitely be back.

We chose Mystwood for our weekend anniversary weekend and were not disappointed. The cabin was clean, nicely appointed and the spa was wonderful. We were worried that the cabin may not have been private but this certainly is not the case. The courtyard and spa
looks onto the bush and it is more than pleasant to end the day in the spa with a wine. The breakfast hamper is generous and it is nice to have the BBQ on the deck. We will certainly be back!

My review will not begin to cover the true beauty and atmosphere of this amazing place!!! We stayed at mystwood in cabin 3 with the amazingly huge bath tub for 3 nights. Being met by such warm and friendly owners and stella of course was so nice and getting into our cabin finding such a beautiful well maintained facility was lovely. Cant highly recommend a stay here enuf. Seen so much beautiful country side, plants and wild life...we had a 1.5m long goanna at our back door, seen wallabies, kangaroos, birds, wombats, snakes being carried off by birds and more. Outdoor Spa was amazing, Thai banquet was delish, brekkie hamper and fresh sourdough was amazing. owners were so lovely and helpful with everything including directions, advise on places to eat and even placea to stop on way home we didn't want to leave. Will certainly be back for another visit.

We have just returned yet again from the best kept secret for a weekend getaway. What a beautiful place surrounds so tranquil and quiet. The Retreats are wonderful very comfortable beds, i don't know what the people in the below review are complaining about! They must be fussy! State of the art entertainment systems and the most wonderful deck to bbq on. The breakfast and home-baked bread is truly a country touch. Being a travel agent and knowing the costs of weekends away this is the best value for money.! A huge thank you again Colin, Phensan, Lieneka and Simon for making our stay fantastic.
