What a wonderful getaway. Beautiful Blue mountains at its best. Enjoyed the peace and tranquility. Our cabin was very clean and comfortable. The resort offered lots of amenities that are great for families. The wonderful lady at reception was just great. Perfect place for families. Only stayed overnight but wished we'd stayed longer. Will definitely be back.

Beautiful little cottages close to Blue Mountains bushwalks and views. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites which was charming and light-filled. We will definitely return! It looks like a good place to set up camp for day walks, and also has a pool, tennis court and bbq facilities.

Would return in a heart beat. Loved my stay and was extremely romantic for my wife and I for Valentines Day. Beautiful scenery, extraordinary peaceful, excellent night sleep to boot. I recommend this place to everyone who wants a break from the business of work and life in general. Escapeism is Thi magical place.

We had a perfect weekend getaway, and the stay at the possums hideaway was definitely one of the highlights. The cottages are quite secluded with fantastic views of natural bush-land, perfect for a quick trip from busy city life. The staff were fantastic, super friendly, but allowed enough privacy to enjoy the surrounds ourselves. Location is great very close to... More

Such a peaceful place to hide away and relax. My husband and I enjoyed being up high in our cottage room and being greeted by the most beautiful birds and possum friends :) The staff are so lovely and management are spectacular! They really look after you :) We really loved staying there and would go back for sure!

Wonderfully peaceful & relaxing. Our room/cabin was well equipped, clean & private and the possums & visiting lyrebird were bonuses. We were greeted with friendly smiles, a bottle of bubbly & chocolates & then left alone to enjoy ourselves. Unfortunately the pool heater had blown up just before our visit but I suppose that gives us a good excuse to... More

Thanks Ken for taking the time to review your stay. Glad you and Bernadette managed to see one of our resident lyrebirds - they usually keep a very low profile! I apologise again for the pool heater problem - I know you both had a couple of very "refreshing" swims! The good news is that it is now working again... More

Possums Hideaway was the perfect place for our group of families to stay. The central BBQ and cooking area was terrific and the grounds were perfect for the kids to play safely. We couldn't have been happier.

The room was amazing. A cosy cabin for two. Quiet surroundings and beautiful in the mornings. It was the perfect getaway. We will definitely be planning a return trip, possibly over the winter so we can make use of the wood fire. I would highly recommend it for anyway that wants or needs to get away.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you are planning to come and stay again in the winter. Winter is definitely a great time to stay in Possums with the crisp Mountain air in the day and a cosy Cabin with wood burning fire to come home to in the evening. We look forward to welcoming you...
