Helen's popular boutique heritage cottage in Katoomba accommodates up to four adults. Only one booking is held over the property so you or your group have full privacy and facilities are not shared. Two persons wishing to stay in single occupancy rooms should book for three adults to obtain the correct price and make the second bedroom available.


"OurSecret" is private, self-contained and fully furnished, with a gas log fire in the comfortable heritage lounge room. The cottage has comfortable heritage-style Queen-sized beds, a well-equipped modern kitchen and shower bathroom with underfloor heating, sun-filled sitting areas, and decks. All linen and towels are provided free of charge, plus some refreshments and supplies for your arrival.

Digital Freeview TV, local books, and Australia-wide touring information. All mobile networks are fully accessible from here.

The guestbook shows the cottage is popular with artists, musicians, writers, media presenters, chefs on holiday, mountain cyclists and marathon runners, garden and photography enthusiasts, romantic couples, nomads and world travellers, and those just needing a quiet getaway. You are sure to love it too

Arrival time is normally after 4pm and departure by 12 noon - these times are extended by us at last minute whenever possible.

The map provided below can be zoomed in to see our excellent location. Few cottages are so convenient for visitors There is off-street parking for two cars and you can walk easily to many of the highlights.


This lovely cottage is perfectly located just around the corner from Katoomba and Lurline Streets where the Blues-Folk, Elvis, & Winter Magic Festivals are held, between the eclectic Katoomba shops and world famous tourist attractions.

Short, near-level walks from the cottage take you to the Lurline Street galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, RSL Club, the Chocolate Factory, and beyond to Echo Point where you can view the famous "Three Sisters" formation - or you can walk to it along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. All the highlights of Katoomba/Leura/Wentworthfalls can be reached by Explorer/Trolley bus from a stop just 50 metres away, and there is no need for a car. Taxis, tours, and car hire are all locally available.

Further afield are the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens, Gardens of Stone & Wollemi National Parks, plus Blackheath, Jenolan Caves, and the beautiful Hartley, Kanimbla, and Megalong Valleys which provide opportunities for bushwalking, off-road touring, horse-riding, mountain biking, rock climbing, abseiling, canyoning, garden and winery tours, and wildlife viewing. OurSecret Cottage is in an excellent position to serve as a base for car touring in the Central West and Central Tablelands Regions. Mudgee, Bathurst, Cowra are easy day trips. Up-to-date touring information and maps are provided in the cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm, cosy and inviting My husband and 2 young kids stayed at this cottage recently. We enjoyed our stay very much - the cottage was well equipped, clean and very cosy. It was raining the whole time we stayed, yet we were very warm with the gas heater going. The owners were great to deal with. I was very impressed with the timeliness of their response, their integrity in asking us the age of our kids (they gave us a discount as one was a toddler), advised us that there was a pond so the garden may not be suitable for young kids and was very responsive when we had trouble turning on the gas heater. It is also very close to Katoomba town centre - on a nice day, it would have been great to be able to take a stroll from the cottage. Overall, a great find! We would stay here again.
