Our kids loved toasting the complimentary marshmallows, it was the highlight of our stay. The BBQ and recreational facilities also made our family holiday fun (and easy for us parents). Would definitely recommend to other families looking for a convenient location and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained.

My family and I stayed 1 night but wished we had booked longer. A great effort has gone into making this place awesome. We loved all the facitilities and took most the day moving from one activity to the next. Have already started to recommend this place to family and friends.

Lovely place to stay. Stayed here with my family. Kids wanted to stay only at accommodation because of the great facilities (did not want to sight see the blue mountains). Would recommend at least 2 nights to fully enjoy the place. Very clean and quiet. Great little pool to swim for the kids even though outside the glass enclosure around... More

There is so many beautiful little touches and suprises to staying at Possum's Hideaway. We stayed in the cottages twice now. They are rustic and cosy and so peaceful and relaxing. The wooden verandahs are lovely to sit and have a coffee. The fireplace was already lit when we walked in, making us feel so welcome. The facilities such as... More

This place is beautiful and cosy and warm. The tiny gifts left with little msgs and fireplace were romantic and we had 3 different possum friend visitors return over 2 nights for berries! Would recommend :)

We are so pleased Clare that you enjoyed a relaxing romantic stay in one of our Possums Hideaway Cabins. It sounds like you really spoilt our resident possums too - just hope they don't expect to be fed berries all the time now!!

What a perfect getaway. Was expecting good things, but what we got was far beyond that. Little extras like a sweet on the pillow, and candles in the bathroom were small touches that made it memorable. The fireplace was even full of kindling ready to light. The grounds were beautifully manicured and staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend it... More

Cabin was smoking hot inside with the fire place... Even tho it was below zero degrees Celsius outside we were sweating balls. Possum knocked on the door on our second evening looking for some more muesli but we didn't have any. So we gave it a toke on the spliff being passed around and he soon left with the munchies...

Beautiful location and very well located for Blue Mountains and Scenic World. The bungalow was well maintained and well equipped (including very efficient gas fire and air conditioned heating, microwave, complimentary tea bags, coffee and marshmallows to toast). The back up facilities were fine. We did not expect that the only oven would be communal under a central canopy. However... More
