    Very clean accommodation. Great heating for winter and lots of activities for kids including a heated pool and games rooms. Close to beautiful bushwalks. Peaceful and perfect for a relaxing weekend away

    We visited just for one night with our two kids, and it was beautiful. The fire was on when we arrived and the cabin was beautiful and toasty! Julie responded to my emails prior to our stay quickly and efficiently. Our cabin was clean and tidy, with all the basic crockery that we would need. Unfortunately we didn't get to... More

    I loved my stay in a Possums Hideaway cabin. I stayed for four nights and I would stay again in heart beat. The cabin was gorgeous with a cozy fireplace and an amazing spar bath. A friendly possum came to visit and we were had the surprise of snow on our first night. Staff were so welcoming and helpful with... More

    Well Rebecca, you certainly had a special experience during your stay with us! To wake up to a blanket of snow cover outside that stayed around for most of your stay is something few guests have experienced. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and we hope to welcome you both back again soon (can't guarantee snow next... More

    Last minute reservations made with these guys.... Beautiful little place, four couples retreat cabins tucked into the rear of the property... The cabin was quaint and lovely, but given the time of year it was exceptionally cold, which was felt in the rooms... The only downside was the cold, I thought the cabin could use some insulation? I would recommend... More

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your last minute getaway with us Adam. The winter air in the Mountains is 'exhilarating' to say the least and I am sorry that even with you log fire burning you still felt the cold. We would love to welcome you back again - perhaps in the warmer months! More

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Fantastic helpful service, above and beyond our expectations. Terrific facilities accomodating children of all ages. Peaceful surrounds yet close to town. Definitely recommend for families.

    Our family enjoyed a mid-week two night stay here during the school holidays. The cabin was warm and ready for our arrival, with a lovely touch being a bag of marshmallows to toast around the outdoor fire pit. The location in Blackheath is an easy distance to Katoomba, the Three Sisters, Scenic Railway, and a nice drive to other Mountains... More

    We are two families who have been up to Federation Gardens 3 times in the last few years, and loved it every time. It's great for kids, who can run around and play cricket or tennis or kick a footy or use the games room, while parents relax. We love the firepit, and the indoor pool is a hit all... More

    We were here just 2 nights and wish it had been longer. Our cabin was cosy and already warmed for our arrival. There is no oven but there was a slow cooker which would have been useful to know beforehand (perhaps I forgot from the info provided). We loved the outside space and the availability of good quality and high... More

    Thank you Emma for writing a review of your stay with us. Like you, many of our guests comment that they wish their stay had been longer as there is so much to see and do in the Mountains. We are glad you also managed to take advantage of our Games Room and squeeze in a game or two! More
