Owner operated and maintained, our place is suitable for small groups and the perfect family accommodation with holiday house essentials and little luxuries like shaving mirrors, bath salts, fluffy towels and hotel quality linen – encouraging you to unwind so you focus on time together. It's not too big for couples either. On check out we entice you to sleep in to recharge your mind and body. Take your time, soak in the view from the deck and breathe in fresh mountain air. The only exception to this is when we have back to back bookings where check out will be at 11am. Whether you're visiting the Blue Mountains for school holidays with the family, Girls Pampering experience, bushwalking & Ultra Trail or any Special Event, let us know so we can personalise your stay with us. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in this beautiful World Heritage Listed area of Australia – including our cooking classes!
