Absolutely loved this place, location is fantastic, house is very comfortable and livable. Loved all the antique furniture and fittings and even though the house is close to town it is very quiet.
Shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and public transport (buses and trains) are all close at hand, so much so that during our four night stay we didn't use our car once.
it rained every day but no matter. Everything, cafes, station, buses, the Carrington, the cinema, were in walking distance. The house is really lovely, very fully equipped with under floor heating to add to the comfort.
Could do with brighter lighting in the kitchen and for reading, but otherwise a perfect mountain retreat.
Enjoyed spacious and private, lovely garden view, convenient location.
It is a comfortable self contained Traditional Mountain Home for single or small family. It is also a good place for retreat.
We have only just left Burnie Brae and we already miss it! I stay in serviced or self catering accommodation for about 250 nights a year and many of my reviews are based on past experiences. When I came upon Burnie Brae the pictures and description sounded ideal and when we walked in the door the expectation was more than met. We spent 5 nights in this delightful cottage and could have easily stayed longer. Lovely, comfy bed, well equipped kitchen, beautiful lounge and dining room all in spectacular surroundings. The walk to town was very easy and we fell in love with Katoomba as well. I cannot fault this cottage in any way and would gladly return!
My wife and I really enjoyed a week spent in this very nicely renovated Federation home in Katoomba. We elected to use only the one bedroom (green room), though two are available. We would recommend this home to those looking for something unique and well cared for - many modern conveniences within a short distance of Katoomba. Recommended.
Great location within walking distance to Katoomba shops and train station. Beautiful, elegant and spacious house with lovely gardens - perfect for the weekend or a longer stay. We were 2 couples and it suited us perfectly. I would highly recommend it.
We stayed at Bernie Brae for three weeks, making it our base for a holiday from the UK. The house lived up to and exceeded our expectations; it is in a quiet road and is an easy walk into town. It is a comfortable 'home from home' with plenty of space. The rooms are all large and very well appointed. The owner (Michael) could not have been more helpful giving great advice on local restaurants and when I told him that we were planning to drive to the Hunter Valley for a couple of days he recommended a route (The Putty Road) which was stunning and really added to our visit. We will be back!
