A lovely place hidden away in the blue mountains. It was very private and a generous breakfast of bacon and eggs was provided. Loved the fireplace and large spa bath. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly Honey the dog and at night we could see possums running around. Would visit again and recommend it to anyone wanting to... More

If you like being away from everything then this is perfect for you. Nestled in the woodland with birds coming to feed at the feeder,(food provided). Cabins are clean but a little jaded,just need a little more attention to small details in maintenance. However I would go there again, full breakfast provided for you to cook yourself, chocolates and champagne.... More

Very underwhelmed with the cleanliness, and the smell at 2 doors was overwhelming. Tried to air the tiny rooms out, but even after dinner and warming the place up, it still smelt awful - just damp and closed up. We asked for a refund for the second night we'd paid for (but did not stay a a accommodation was not... More

Unfortunately these very unpleasant guests stayed one night (the day of my fathers funeral) then decided the needed to be closer to Katoomba and left. I had personally prepared the rooms and know the complaints to be untrue. The report writer is sledging us so they can get a refund of their deposit which is not due to them. More

We stayed here last weekend in the Paddock cabin and it was beautiful. The cabin is away from the house and set next to the bush. Its laid out very well including a wood burning stove and spa bath (lovely after a cold day out!). I also liked the bird table outside the front balcony as plenty of birds seem... More

Brilliant stay, peaceful clean and well appointed cabins. Perfect for stressed out busy city people, limited mobile reception a wonderful bonus. No distractions just peace and the sounds of wild birds and silence. Wish we could stay there forever!

Stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute! We stayed in the piks cabin which had a modern bathroom and a reasonably sized spa bath. Was nice to relax next the wood fire at night and soak up the nature on the balcony during the day. I rated the service as good as we only had contact with the owner... More

Had a wonderfully relaxing time at Pik's cottage. Really relaxed feel with a balcony with the bush and birds at your door. Great cottage with a spa bath and really comfy bed. Everything was provided for, we were even given champagne & chocolates! Definitely come back again.

Just recently my wife and I stayed and it exceeded our expectations, we stayed in the Flint Hill cottage, it was really cosy, snuggling up in front of the fire and looking out to the surrounding bush. It had everything we needed for our romantic getaway. It was peaceful, comfortable and the most important thing private. Didn’t feel like we... More

The stayed a Rustic Spirit for a few nights getaway on a recent weekend. Great location as it's only a short drive from Sydney. The cabin was nice enough, it was almost as if it had passed its hey day though. It was very tired, not all that much effort put in by the owners.. The bathroom was mouldy and... More
