Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent property Lovely property. Kitchen well set up & location great. Sadly outdoor area let this property down for us. The garden is not toddler friendly & couldn't eat outdoors despite glorious weather as there was no shade. Home is lovely, comfortable & beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family getaway location Rustic, spacious, relaxed. Great place for kids and adults alike. Beds very comfortable and linen good as well. Needing a little TLC in a few areas and an axe would have helped to break up a bit of fire wood but overall a really great and unique property. would stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great home for a Blue Mountains weekend We stayed there for a weekend away with friends and found it perfect for a group of couples. Beautiful rooms and big enough for everyone to have separate space and come together at the end of the day around the beautiful big table. Great choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic house for a weekend away with friends. We spent hours playing pool and then relaxed watching movies as the fire roared away. Four great sized bedrooms with lovely comfy beds ensured a really relaxing stay. Would definitely recommend The Last Straw to anyone.
