Shuffleshoes is the ultimate romantic self-contained retreat for one or two couples, nestled at the end of a private lane in an amphitheatre of ferns, 180 year old tree-ferns and old growth gumtrees, with an ephemeral creek running through the garden. It has an enormous hydrotherapy spa (with a view!), and a log fire; facilities and inclusions are comprehensive and of the highest quality. Our generous, healthy food and beverage provisions help ensure that you will be spoiled in every way.
Shuffleshoes is a remarkable property. Although only an 8 minute stroll from the cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops of Blackheath (and the railway station), this is a quiet and hidden sanctuary. Accessed via a private bush lane and situated at the head of the beautiful Popes Glen catchment, Shuffleshoes is surrounded by unspoiled natural vegetation.
The timber cottage, is exceptionally cute and provides that complete romantic mountain getaway with the warmth of the natural wood and high exposed timber ceilings. The queen size main bedroom is in the upstairs loft with views over the Popes Glenn catchment area. Downstairs contains the double bedroom and open plan living area. Enjoy a bottle of champagne in the generous 2 person spa that has views over the tree-ferns. Afterwards relax on the leather lounge in front of the slow combustion fire. The cottage is is completely self-contained with a fully equipped kitchen, sound system, TV & DVD.
Lying as it does so close to the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park, the garden is frequented by lyre birds, whip birds and bower birds. Parrots and kookaburras abound and ducks are regular visitors on the lawns and in the water. Watch for rock wallabies in the morning and evening and spot possums at night.
At dusk, the garden becomes a visual wonderland with dramatic landscape lighting.
If you need a romantic escape then there is no better place to be then Shuffleshoes!
