“Possium #1”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Great home away from home. Clean and modern rooms with an incredible spa bath. the room and bath were surrounded by candles which added to the ambience. Really enjoyed the breakfast basket daily. A lovely get away. Cant wait to come back!!! Possums were fun to see. Handy location to the centre of town- blackheath.

The cabin was perfect in everyway, clean spacious, beautiful huge spa. We arrived late heater was on for us fire was prepared ready to be lit. Plenty of food for breaky left for us! Never seen another person although the cabins are near. Very private beautiful grounds. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Cannot wait going back every year for my birthday :)

Just home from a stay at Possums. Had a lovely time. Weather was terrible but we didn't mind as we were happy staying inside our lovely cabin, utilising the fire and the massive spa. Good kitchenette, can make your own meals if you want. Good choice of complimentary DVDs in reception. Saw a friendly possum on our first night. Would recommend.

We had a fabulous family break in a Pine Cottage. Lovely setting, beautifully presented cottage, with great and convenient gas fired wood burner style heater and effective reverse cycle air con. The gardens were great and kids played basketball, soccer and swam in the heated pool. Great bushwalks and restaurants nearby, as well as an IGA supermarket. Helpful and friendly owners. Quiet secluded, just great! We'll be back for sure!

We stayed in a possum cabin for 2 nights and I was sad we had to leave! We had the best time there! It was so fun being able to snuggle infront of the fire at night, surrounded by bush and having a candle lit spa was absolute bliss. It was such a fun experience. The small town up the road 'blackheath' was so cute and we defiantly reccomend going if you get the chance. There are lookouts that have breath taking views and one even had a view of waterfalls. Just ask the locals who work in the shops, they'll tell you all the amazing places you should visit.
We defiantly will be returning to the possum cabins! The people who work at reception are really nice aswel. The only downfall was that the pool was pretty cold even though its ment to be heated.
Such an amazing place to stay! Highly reccommended!!!! :-)

We stayed here recently from the 2nd -6th june 2013 and loved it.! The greatest place to be when you want to hideaway from the rest of the world. me and my boyfriend had such a relaxing time, peace and quiet. just wonderful and just the atmosphere around was slightly magicial. Loved it so much will be back next year. We have planned to make it a yearly visit to take a break from everything. Oh and the possums we miss them already could not believe we had 3 come visit one of the nights :) our food must have been good. had a lovely time in Blackheath and a great time in the blue mountains at Katoomba.
just one little thing nothing too big our toaster was broken.kept getting burnt toast might want to replace it before someone hurts themselves.

Room Tip: choose the 3 and 4 cabins they are up high and the possums come to you easier if you want to be able...

I perhaps didn't read everything on the website and was a bit disappointed. I recently threw away a 15 year old mattress that was better than the one we slept on. We were not offered the breakfast hamper even though I asked about breakfasts at check in.
The website says nothing about extra costs if you dont clean up after yourself - I came for a relaxing weekend with my wife to get away from cleaning etc!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When we got there the room was cold, the fire was hard to light. I am sure if these things are advertised right then maybe my feathers would not be ruffled.

We decided to have a good weekend anyway.

Thanks,
Steven

Room Tip: No fitness center there except for the great outdoors.
