Located at the base of Mount York the sight of the original Blue Mountains crossing by early explorers Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth in 1813.
Collits Inn was built in 1823 and a truly unique property and remains as the oldest standing set of buildings west of the Blue Mountains.
Over the years the inn has undergone many changes, most notably in 1998 when Christine and Russell Stewart purchased the property and set about a massive restoration after years of neglect. And what a job they did not only restoring the inn to near original condition but also discreetly adding a few modern features.
For the last 10 years the Inn had been used exclusively as a private residence. Until now with a local family having the opportunity to bring the inn back to its historical best offering unique accommodation, fresh local produce cooked by your own on site chef and complimenting wine selections.
