My boyfriend and I stayed in the Vue for 3 nights in July and it was amazing. Everything from the view, the gas fireplace, the spa and waking up to Aussie wildlife - it was all perfect. We barely saw a soul while we were there which was ideal for us seeing as we were looking for a comfortable escape from busy Sydney life. The self check-in and check-out is a fantastic system. The breakfast they provided was great as well - fresh tomatoes and eggs, bacon, fresh milk, juice, tea and a variety of cereal and oats. Pretty much anything that people generally have for breakfast, they had. They also had a great Weber BBQ in the courtyard which we used quite a bit. Only downside is that it is a half hour drive to Pokolbin so if this is the first time you've been to the Hunter, it's probably not the best location for you. Seeing as we were there in the middle of winter, we were a bit discouraged from going out for dinner after returning to the cottage in the afternoon. But that's largely because it was a such a fantastic place to stay and it was hard to get out of the spa!

For people who need to be connected to the outside world, there is no reception or 3G in the area whatsoever which I suppose can be an issue for some. Also, right next to the Vue is a farm full of cows (which I personally absolutely love) but if you're light sleeper, they do moo quite a bit early in the morning.

Anyhow, LOVED this place, would definitely go back.

From the moment we walked in the door to the music playing and fire place burning we knew we had picked the right place to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. We felt like we were a million miles from anything.

We have been searching for years to find a place just like this - From the double spa that looked over the mountains (and had a great view of the TV and fire!) to the deck complete with a BBQ and reclining chairs - it was perfect.

Not to mention the lovely bottle of wine, chocolates and scrumptious food that was provided for breakfast (that also did us for lunch). We even got a farewell from a group of kangaroos to top off the trip.

Relaxing and romantic - Cedars is definitely a hidden gem that we cant wait to return to.

Room Tip: People may want to know there is no mobile reception (makes it even better to relax) and only Foxtel...

Dear sdsn
Thank you so much for taking the time to let Tripadvisor visitors know about your experience at The Vue. Your kind comments are much appreciated and valued by us.

I did note you mentioned there was no free to air TV. We have always had free to air TV which is accessed by the BOSE remote. If the instructions weren't clear enough, please accept my apologies. You need to change the input (AV channel) to choose whether you want TV, FOXTEL, DVD or IPOD.
Kind regards
Jenny

Spent 3 nights here with my fiance and never wanted to leave.

Everything about Cedars was perfection, we stayed in The Terrace.

Bree was incredibly helpful, and booked us in for all the trappings we wanted with no hesitation.

We've found perfection and it's at Cedars Mount View.

My partner and I stayed at The Creek cottage at Cedars last month on our first trip away. It was without doubt the most beautiful accommodation I have stayed in. On arrival we cracked open the complimentry bottle of champagne and took in the view from our secluded deck. The HUGE television was a great as well as the luxurious king bed and spa. We will be going back, but may try one of the other villas next time - I'm sure they're all great!

Stayed for 2 nights in the "Ridge" . We wanted a quiet weekend away in what we hoped was decent accommodation.
What we encountered far exceeded our expectations.
The room was first class with excellent privacy from the other cabins.
The service and willingness to help from the on site management was very much appreciated.
The location is close enough to the main wineries, restaurants etc whilst still providing the sense of isolation we wanted.
Be aware there is no mobile coverage on the property however we found this a godsend.
If we could give 10 stars to Cedars Mount View we would.
Just book. You wont regret it.

We stayed in the Gums Cottage, on arrival we simply got a wave from the caretaker. The door was unlocked and relaxing music was playing. Perfect check in. Breakfast provisions were great, spa was fantastic, cottage felt like home, big balcony, bose stereo. We sat and ate oysters and Petersons champage on the deck. Sensational. Quiet and relaxing.

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere close to Sydney, in luxury accommodation, where we could be left alone and enjoy time together before our first baby was born. Cedars Mount View was perfect.

The location is lovely. It is about a 15 minute drive to Pokolbin, so you are not right in the centre of the wineries, and right in the middle of a huge property, full of wildlife - many types of birds, kangaroos grazing right outside the cabin and cicadas singing out beautifully.

We stayed in The Terrace, a luxurious, clean, cosy and romantic split-level place for a couple. Little chocolates on arrival, complimentary bottle of wine, breakfast hamper included in the price - so food was all taken care of! There is a lovely balcony, where we breakfasted both mornings, looking out into the bush, listening to the cicadas, and looking out for the kangaroos (which we saw at dusk both evenings we were there, but not the mornings). The king sized bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom immaculately clean, the spa bath for two we used both nights (even though it was hot outside!), air conditioning was great and the entertainment system fabulous, with a good selection of DVDs. We had a problem with using the DVD player the first night, which wasn't a huge problem, and when we mentioned it to the staff the next day, it got fixed within the hour while we were out - I was so impressed with their efficiency and the extra chocolates they left us!

The self check-in and check-out system is wonderful, especially as we we just wanted to be left alone and not have to engage too much with other people, which is sometimes a problem when staying at B&Bs.

We had such a restful and relaxing time at The Terrace at Cedars, we will surely be back!
