Description

"Elsmore" Cottage

This little cottage started it's life as a one room gardener's hut around the turn of the nineteenth century. It remained reasonably untouched until the early 1990's when it was extended and modernised. The land was used until the 1960's as a flower farm with Dahlias and Gladioli grown. Many of the dry stone walled terraces can still be seen on the property. Elsmore is also renowned for it's Rhododendrons with their huge pink flowers on display from late September until early November. While 8 mins walk to the Imperial Hotel, "Elsmore" is a true hideaway. It is also within walking distance of local bush walks and rock climbing areas.

The house is ideal for couples seeking a quiet and cosy getaway or for families. There is a rear deck for a morning coffee or an afternoon refreshment.

Elsmore is hidden in the trees surrounded by gums and rhododendrons, which display a mass of pink flowers in spring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Rustic surroundings but disappointed with the accommodation. The cottage was musty. It was full of cobwebs and dust. I am an asthmatic and due to the dust, it got aggravated. I was hoping to breath in some fresh mountain air during my stay but alas that didn't happen. There was a huge spider behind the photo frame above the master bed, not sure whether it was poisonous or not. The toilet seat needs to be changed, it was old and stained. The deck was nice but no deck furniture to sit in and enjoy the view, were forced to take out the uncomfortable wooden dining chairs, hence sitting out was not a pleasant experience. All in all not worth the price we paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, cute cottage with lovely outlook The cottage provides good facilities, with a big main room, a sofa bed and a double bunk. Cosy for 5 and likely best for 4 but we enjoyed it very much regardless as our kids (10, 8 and 6 y.o.'s) could get about in the bush for a positive experience. Lovely outlook straight into national park, so sunny and pleasant sit on the terrace with a cuppa.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We stayed with four adults and two children which was a bit of a squeeze (as flagged by the owner). But the lovely atmosphere of Elsemore with lots of character made it a very nice stay nonetheless. We felt very much at home. The communication with the owner was excellent. The location was perfect for us being close to lots of bush walks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This property is very charming and cosy. We enjoyed the tranquillity it offers especially taking in the surrounding nature whilst sitting on the porch having our breakfast. This property provides a lot of the daily convenient and extras so you can feel right at home. Very clean. We definitely enjoyed our stay here
