*********Certificate of Excellence 2014 Winner TripAdvisor*********

moments Mountain Retreat was built in 1912 and lovingly and tastefully renovated by the current owners. The beautiful homestead sits on an escarpment at the entrance to the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park in a quiet pocket of Wentworth Falls.

Perfect as a base for bushwalking in the adjoining Valley of the Waters section of the National Park. Various short, medium and long tracks start just 50 metres down the road, at the famous Conservation Hut Café. Stay in a quiet and peaceful area with only a 5-minute-drive to Leura Village and a 10-minute-drive to Katoomba and the Three Sisters Lookout.

A Special Piece of History

From your verandah you will be looking south over the Jamison Valley. The view covers extensive parts of the Blue Mountains National Park and extends at least ninety kilometres to Mount Gibraltar, near Bowral and Mittagong in the Southern Highlands.

The property was originally built in 1912 as a Blue Mountains holiday house on two adjoining bush blocks. Through the 1930s, the charming mountain weatherboard house was home to the Bull family and had various owners and uses up until the 1990s. It was owned by an Anglican bishop, Bishop Foord, who named the property Mount Tabor. He planted some parts of the beautiful exotic garden you will be able to enjoy today.

After a bushfire almost claimed the building in 1957, it was abandoned for some years and fell into disrepair. The property was marked for demolition and re-development, before it was rescued by Rob and Rita Fisher, the current owners, in 1996. Following two years of intensive restoration and renovation, Mount Tabor was re-named and opened as moments Mountain Retreat in April 1998. The rest, as they say, is history!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moments. It was fantastic, couldn't have been more perfect. The feeling of solitude, the view and yet close proximity to the wonders of The Blue Mountains made it everything we had hoped for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't think of any way to improve our stay, apart from ordering the mist to clear a bit more often to reveal the escarpment and the valley. The view from the private balcony was great, and breakfast at the cafe a short walk away was inovative and tasty.
