“Best spot in the Hunter”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We've stayed at dozens of places in the Hunter (while organising a wedding over several months), and this is our favourite. It feels secluded and private, but you're only a few minutes away from the vineyards. The outdoor spa (pre-heated) allows you to rock up and jump straight in, enjoy the stars at night and some incredible bird life in the morning or after a day out and about. And did I mention the wood fire? Go stay here.

Would happily recommend this place... a cute cottage in a perfect setting. The spa was absolutely amazing under the stars whilst drinking our locally bought wine. The owners are awesome and really ensure your stay is a great one. The cottages are very clean and comfortable, with a lovely fireplace. The setting is quiet, tranquil and picturesque.. what more can you ask for.

Room Tip: Definitely go for a cottage with a spa!

My mother and I enjoyed a girls trip to the Hunter and this two bedroom cottage was the perfect base. Comfortable and just off the tourist trail, we were able to relax in the peace and quiet. The fire heats the cottage very well and the kitchen was well appointed for the nights we felt like staying in to get a start on drinking the wine we purchased! The breakfast basket was overflowing with goodies. John and Andy were very welcoming and helpful as well. Would definitely return!

Fantastic little cabin surrounded by bushland.......stayed two nights during July and had a very relaxing stay. The wood fire kept us cosy after a few frosty runs to and from the spa. Lying in the spa watching the stars with a glass of wine was about as relaxing as it gets! The location seems remote, but is only a really short drive to local wineries and hunter valley attractions.
Thanks to John for a great get away.

Will and Sara.

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our week's stay in the cottage. It's a very peaceful and lovely part of the world. We would certainly be more than happy to recommend Cottages On Mount View to our friends. Customer service was excellent and there was good attention to small details, such as a lovely welcoming gift hamper. The private spa was wonderful! If you are looking for a peaceful and romantic place to get away from it all, this is the place for you.

This beautiful cottage is the perfect escape to the country. When we first arrived I was concerned about the fire providing adequate heating but my fears were soon put to rest once we got the fire going. The outdoor jacuzzi was sensational, as was lying in the hammock listening to the birds. John was efficient with the booking, attentive and patient with our requests, provided information about bushwalks and things to do and has a calm and warm energy. Loved arriving to a breakfast hamper with eggs (only 4 though so take more if need), bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, fresh bread, jam (a small one, so again take more if you need), butter, sparkling wine and lindt chocolates.

If you are a foodie and are planning some big cook ups, it will be useful to take your own knives and chopping board.

For a romantic weekend away, it couldn't have been better.

Living as an expat in Beijing, when I returned to Sydney for a holiday (I lived in Sydney for 7 years previously), I wanted to stay somewhere secluded and romantic. I could see the reviews were good and the photos looked ideal. I could tell from when I called John (the co owner) that this was the right place to go to. He was so friendly on the phone and was very sensitive to my desire to be away from other people (living in a city of 20 million plus people does that you to). He booked us into the most remote cabin of the four and was incredibly welcoming on arrival having gone out of our way to make us feel comfortable. The cabin is lovely - open fires, wooden floors, outdoor high quality spa etc. We just completely unwound in their lovely property and watched Wallabies running around in the forest and ravine. If you want to escape Sydney for the weekend and stay in a friendly, high quality and remote cabin this place is just ideal. We will certainly be going back there anytime I go back to Sydney.

Room Tip: Ask John for the remote cabin you have the countryside to yourself!
