“Perfect Mountain Retreat”
Reviewed August 18, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We had an excellent weekend in this beautiful cottage. It is a huge space very suitable for groups. The cottage has everything you could possible want including an enclosed wood fire.
We had a Yuletide dinner and were able to cook easily with the fully equipped kitchen.
The media system is very advanced but easy to use.
It’s an easy walk to Hydro and the station.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends.

“Perfect”
Reviewed April 12, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A great location with peace and solitude. The lodge was even better than we expected, and has all the convenience of a home away from home. The setting is tranquil, and remote enough to afford us some relaxation and down time from the hustle and bustle of work.

What made it even special was how pet friendly it is, and the owners made us welcome all along the booking to exit journey.

We chose this last minute but Markus was ever so helpful and we will definitely be back. We didnt want to leave.

“Best Retreat for Mountain exploring”
Reviewed November 20, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

A perfect place for a few friends to explore the local walks and places of interests. Nice and warm with the two fires and plenty of everything in the Lodge to make us comfortable - BBQ, DVDs, CDs, kitchen with all mod cons and two bathrooms - a great weekend get away.

“Beautiful Blue Mountains Retreat”
Reviewed October 8, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The perfect base for exploring the Blue Mountains. Holly Lodge exceeded the whole families expectations and you can plainly see that the owners have put a lot into this property. Everything was here to cater for our family for our week stay. Having the railway station within walking distance was convenient for our day trip to Circular Quay to see the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera house. The slow combustion fireplace and supplied wood warmed the whole place nicely and was really appreciated on the cold nights! Thank you Markus & Chrissie for sharing your beautiful place with our family.

“Perfect winter lodge”

We loved out stay! Warm, inviting and thoughtfully appointed. So many hidden extras that you wouldn't expect in a holiday rental. The kids looooved sleeping and playing up in the loft!

“A very sweet Mountain Retreat!”
Reviewed June 6, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

First stop on the first trip to Australia and what a fantastic choice. The provided description of this property is exactly accurate and is the perfect large (not little) log cabin retreat. From the moment we walked it became "home" being comfortable and relaxed...everyone just parked their luggage in their chosen bedroom and convened in the common area of the kitchen, dining and living room. And building a fire in the wonderful wood stove just brings it all together to create the most amazing family time sharing environment. Oh and is so quiet and feels totally remote even with neighboring homes not far away.

When we ventured out of property enjoyed the Scenic World attraction (not to be missed in our opinion) and the just touring the incredible countryside and taking in the vistas. Absolutely amazing countryside....with pastures going on as far as the eye could see.

Totally enjoyed our introduction to Australia via the Holly Lodge. Highly recommend this property for those wanting a high end yet laid-back, well appointed, family friendly and comfortable location to serve as "base camp" for their exploration. Sincerely appreciate the owners sharing their wonderful mountain home with us. A++ in our book!

“The Perfect House!”
Reviewed December 11, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We loved our stay at Holly Lodge - the house has everything you could possibly want and the location is perfect - close enough to all the Blue Mountains attractions but secluded enough to have privacy and peace. We'll be back!
