REMEMBER: A time when simple pleasures made you happy.

RELAX: With those who are closest to you.

REFRESH: Your spirit.

Enjoy the rustic luxury of our three bedroom, two bathroom rural retreat set on five acres in the Portland Town Common with stunning views of the Great Dividing Range.

Although secluded - set within the boundaries of 100 acre properties - it is only a five minute drive to the quaint local shops featuring old advertising signs, the original Art Deco Crystal Theatre and olympic swimming pool.

Featured in The Sun-Herald travel section and Blue Mountains Life magazine, the house was built using recycled materials such as old convict bricks, chunky bridge timbers, floorboards rescued from the old Bathurst Hat Factory and leadlight windows and doors.

There's an expansive open-plan living area with cathedral ceilings and ten bi-fold doors which open onto a large deck area.

The main bathroom features an enormous shower and there is a deep claw-foot bath in the ensuite.

Full laundry and kitchen facilities are offered as well as a slow combustion wood heater and electric blankets, fluffy quilts and quality cotton sheets.

We have an interesting collection of memorabilia and antiques, sourced over the years, and a good selection of DVD's, books and games.

The property is home to our two alpacas and your pets are welcome. There are yabbies in the local creek, which is a five minute walk from the property.

The area boasts many species of native birds and wildlife, as well as the Town Common ponies, who roam around by the creek.

Experience the magnificent night sky!

Ideal for small, intimate weddings and ceremonies, without breaking the bank.

There are easy day trips to Cowra, Orange, Mudgee, Hill End, Sofala, and scenic short drives to the stunning Capertee and Wolgan Valleys, Lithgow, Bathurst, Oberon and the Jenolan Caves.

Please note Mountain View Escape is owned and managed entirely in Australia and we will never ask for money to be transferred to an overseas bank account.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stay at an amazing property Six of us recently stayed for a weekend break at Mountain View Escape. From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by this place. So spacious and tastefully decorated, everything was perfect about the house! Annie is an awesome host, the emails leading up to the trip were great, she made sure that we were left wanting for nothing. The two friendly Alpacas in the garden came to say hi in the mornings. The stars at night are so clear - something you just don't see in the city plus the silence at night, oh the silence - outstanding. I can't recommend this place enough. I would give it more stars if it were possible :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spot for leaning back and enjoying peace As a family of six adults and two children 3 and 5 years old, we had the perfect relax together. Calm and peaceful, the house is on a reasonably large fenced block with two friendly alpacas to feed. We did a few local walks, watched the sun set as we barbecued, and soaked up an atmosphere about as far away as you can get from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Clean air, no noise apart from lots of native birds chirping, and the occasional kangaroo in the evening. That doesn't mean there was nothing to do. Annie had provided lots of books, magazines and DVDs of all sorts. A short drive to Portland found a country butcher, supermarket and quaint pubs a generation removed from anything the city has to offer, and at least for this elderly codger, a sense of returning to a nearly forgotten past. If you're thinking about it: do it. Your inner self will thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gem on the western slopes of the Blue Mountains Mountainview provided a peaceful place to relax for the 5 days we stayed in October 2015. The accommodation was comfortable and cosy. There were many thoughtful inclusions, such as: a fire ready for lighting with unlimited wood provided, pick your own herbs, kitchen stocked with condiments, oils, onions and garlic. Bedroom included dressing gowns, slippers and coats. The best provisions were the reading material provided - some going back many decades. Even 1950's original Australian Women's Weekly - so nostalgic. We also enjoyed feeding multiple native birds with seed provided. We noted other animals on the property - alpacas, wombats, rabbits and kangaroos. A very welcoming and enjoyable place, conveniently located not far from Portland and short drive to Sydney. We are already planning a return visit. Thank you Annie.
