I booked a couple of Mountain View cabins for an overnight stay after watching the Christmas Lights at the Hunter Valley Gardens.
Located in Cessnock rather than being in the winery area itself, meant that we were only a minute drive from the supermarkets and other essential services.
It was also only a 20 minute drive to the gardens and other popular wineries.
I did notice there was some newer Mount View cabins near us. The one we stayed in was a bit old but they refurbished the toilet and we had a new sofa bed.
The cabin was very clean when we arrived and the air con worked sufficiently well during a 35C day! (although the air con was very loud).
Kitchen was well equipped with a full sized fridge and gas stove top. Just outside are some BBQs as well.
Although a bit smaller than the other cabins, the Mount View was sufficient for 2 adults and 2 children under 5. If you have teenagers for example, I may opt for the larger cabins.
I did ask around many places during the first week of January - and since it was peak period, prices were expensive everywhere in the Hunter - but this caravan got my pick because it ended up being the best value.
They also have a jumping pillow - no shade however, and the pool was ok although the amenities were quite dirty when we were there.
Overall, a great stop over and although not as glamorous as the other winery accommodation in the area, this may fit well for those with young children.
