*COMPLIMENTARY FIREWOOD, CHAMPAGNE, SATELLITE TV, WIFI INTERNET & LINEN. SUNDAY LATE CHECKOUT - ANY TIME YOU LIKE ...and so much more.
Elsewhere Retreat is a secluded haven set in 40 acres of rolling hills and stunning bush 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.
At Elsewhere, there is plenty to do or nothing to do...the choice is yours.
