Though it has been a while since we stayed a recent resolution to reward the good things in life prompts me to mention that I am still savoring the fresh eggs and bread provided for us for our breakfast at Crystal Creek Meadows. That may not seem like much but the fact that I can, despite the span of 10 months, rave about the breakfast, and the accommodations not to mention the pride and hospitality of the owners, speaks volumes.
Crystal Creek Meadows is hard to categorize. On one hand it is a B&B, but you cook your own breakfast. It has accommodations that rival a fine hotel and yet they are cottages. We stayed at the Jolly Jumbuck and the views across a small pond to the valley surrounds seemed to change constantly for the good. Chris and Sophie take great pride in the place and that pride is fully justified. You will find romance, seclusion and Chris will let you know where to find the platypus.
I was originally a little apprehensive about staying in what seemed to be remote location because I didn't want to have to drive back to the "hotel" after dark. No worries, the curry dinner that was provided in pouches was instant gourmet and almost as memorable as the breakfast!
There are two other things in need of mention. One the bath products hand crafted by the owners and two the 1969 MG that the Warrens make available to guests for the perfect drive through the valley. The former brings a sense of comfort and the latter a dash of class.
This is the perfect place for a honeymoon or a romantic get away - life doesn't get any better.
If there was one disappointment to our stay it is that Kangaroo Valley itself is a bit of a misnomer. You are unlikely to find any! That aside what you will find is a warm reception and a heavenly stay.
