Rather be Elsewhere? Then Escape to Elsewhere Retreat and enjoy a unique Blue Mountains experience in the magical Megalong Valley.


Elsewhere Retreat is a secluded haven on 40 acres with stunning views of rolling hills and escarpment in the magical Megalong Valley. It is supremely private with no other house or accommodation on the property or visible from anywhere on the property, yet only 20 minutes from Blackheath and all the attractions of the Blue Mountains.

The house itself is graced with cathedral ceilings, picture windows, open fireplaces and all modern amenities, including furniture and fittings to the highest standard so that your comfort is guaranteed.

There are breathtaking views from every window and wrap-around verandahs on all sides of the house from which you can gaze at the escarpment, or just follow the sun from East to West as the day unfolds. Explore the 40 acres and follow the meandering creek or sit and enjoy the view from the viewing seats above the house. Whether you grab one of our bikes to explore or choose to snooze in a hammock or rocking chair on the verandah, you cannot fail to be captivated by the magic of Elsewhere

All linen and firewood is provided and there is an extensive library of books, DVDs, CDs, videos, games and even mountain bikes.

We pride ourselves on making Elsewhere your home away from home, trying to provide every little thing you would expect to have in your own home - which is why so many of our guests come back to stay again and again. Don't just take our word for it - read our guests' reviews.

At Elsewhere, there is plenty to do or nothing to do...the choice is yours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Getaway Our stay at elsewhere was one of the best getaways we've had. The house was very clean and well equipped with everything you'll need. There is so much to do in and around the house, like bike riding, bush walking, bird watching and much more or could simply do nothing and sleep on the hammock and gaze into the mountains. The land had abundant wildlife ,there were kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and many birds. The stars at night were incredible, with shooting stars flying by every few minutes. The area around the house was well secured so the family dog was free to roam around and explore. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we'll definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bliss This place is incredible. Within 24 hours of arrival, I felt like I'd taken a peace pill, stripping all stress from my veins. This is seclusion and tranquillity at its finest. The very occasional plane flying far, far above is the ONLY sound you will hear indicating that other humans are out there somewhere. There are too many pluses to mention but I'll try: Watching a full moon rise from the viewing seats on the hill. Waking up to the spectacular web-like mists laying over the valley, and watching them turn pink as the sun rises. The smell of woodsmoke from the combustion fire in the late afternoon. Laying in a hammock on the verandah for hours on end, reading and watching willy wag tails flitting across the lawns while the sky puts on a magnificent rolling cloud show above. The books, the eclectic CDs (everything from Mozart to Melissa Etheridge), the awesome sound system, the luxurious sheets and towels, and the little extras like Aerogard. And this property is brilliant for dog owners. The perimeter fencing is excellent and my two little dogs had the time of their lives. They ran for several hours straight after arrival, dancing after the myriad butterflies and birds and I don't think they stopped smiling for the whole three days. They saw their first kangaroo, cow and red-bellied black snake - which was interesting! The owners are lovely and easily contactable. Thank you Louise and Andrew for the champagne and Lindt balls - combined with a hammock and a good book they made a nirvana-like combination!
