Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosy Mountains Escape If you are looking for a spacious, cosy and relaxed place to hang out at this is the place. The house is well equipped for a autumn/winter mountain stay. It has a cosy fireplace, oil heaters in all rooms and electric blankets on all beds. Bedding & towels were supplied which was great! Also a few logs to get your fire started. If you have babies or kids there is plenty of equipment, toys and games to keep them busy. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and preparing food. The bedrooms are modern & comfortable. It's not to far by car to all the main sights and towns but could be a bit steep for walking in the area for some. There is great coffee & service at nearby cafe Cassiopeia and Hinkler Park for a kids playground. The owner is very friendly, quick to respond, helpful and answer queries :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent property! The house was very well equipped for 4 adults and two small children. The only negatives we experienced were an unclean BBQ from the last guests and a leaking roof in the back sun room when it rained.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well set up home close to attractions! Great little home that is roomy enough for 4 adults and 2 children. All the essentials you need and more. The kids loved the plentiful toys and games. It was a lovely touch to have some goodies left in the fridge on arrival. House was clean and tidy however some of the dishes had not been cleaned properly (this is an expectation of the previous guests though) and the back patio could have been swept to enjoy more use while the kids play outside. Close to all the attractions around the blue mountains. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place for kids We stayed for a couple of nights in August. Having a backyard was great for kids(4 & 7) as were all the kids toys in the front room.
