Overview

About the property

Welcome to Arcadia on Carrington - a grand country home that is stylishly furnished with collectables and artwork. Arcadia on Carrington is close to bushwalks, escarpment views, renowned restaurants and the Katoomba town centre.

There are four bedrooms at Arcadia:

Bedroom 1: Queen bed with large ensuite bathroom

Bedroom 2: Queen bed

Bedroom 3: Twin singles (can also be made up as a kingsize bed) with ensuite bathroom

Bedroom 4: Double bed, with French door leading out onto the front verandah

There is also a large main bathroom with shower and spa bath, so 3 bathrooms total in the house. Arcadia on Carrington is a stylish and comfortable retreat, particularly for four couples with plenty of space.

There is a combined living/dining/kitchen great room at the back of the house, which looks out over an established garden. Gather by the gas log fire in winter or on cool evenings, or open the French doors at the back in warmer weather and enjoy the scents and sights in the garden.

A recent addition is the Safari Bar, a separate entertainment room in the garden which opens onto the outdoor dining and BBQ area under the wisteria. A feature is the Bluetooth enabled "jukebox" which can link to your play lists via internet radio such as Pandora.

Always a warm welcome - in wintertime, we turn the heating on before your arrival so you enter a warm and cozy house. All of the comfortable beds are equipped with doonas, electric blankets and blankets, plus extra throws in each room.

A day at Arcadia on Carrington: Coffee in the sunroom or on the front veranda - explore the nearby walks or Echo Point with lunch. In the afternoon, take a book to the sunroom for quiet solace. Relax, gather in the Great Room to socialise or dine. Cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen with dinner at the dining room table or perhaps a barbeque under the wisteria in the garden. At sunset, take a bottle of champagne just up to the crest of Carrington Ave, sit on the park bench and admire the ageless escarpment turning golden ochre under the setting sun.

Arcadia on Carrington is conveniently located between the town centre and Echo Point. Adjacent to Prince Henry Cliff Top Walk (Leura Cascades to Echo Point) and an easy stroll to two top class restaurants, The Rooster and Solitary.

Getaway for the weekend in style at Arcadia on Carrington! We're looking forward to your visit.

Comfortable and well equipped with beautiful décor, traditional gardens and loads of wildlife to watch. Thank you we were impressed. (Catherine, Sept 2015)

"Thank you for the use of this lovely home. The six of us ladies had a great weekend, lots of laughs, comfortable beds and a warm house - we didn't want to leave. We shall return! (Wollongong ladies, August 2015)

We stayed in the house for the first time and we would like to compliment you for the comfort you have created here. This feels like our house! We appreciated the quality of your kitchen fitout and content. We loved the design of the spaces - all spaces - the pictures, the lighting & comfortable bathrooms. Big thank you! We will be back. (Eva, July 2015)

An amazing girls' weekend - lots of wine and laughs in this great house! We had a really good stay! (Sydney ladies, July 2015)

We had a great time at your beautiful house! What a lovely and charming place - we thoroughly enjoyed it and so did the kids and we'll be back. We were delighted with the snowfall! Thanks again for a wonderful holiday home experience. (Nora, July 2015)

Just perfect for a girls' getaway! Thank you - spacious, comfortable, warm in temperature AND atmosphere. Sad to leave today. (Central Coast ladies, June 2015)

... and on the seventh day, God designed and built Arcadia, and then rested. Just a beautiful spot. (Russell & Chris, May 2015)

A lovely Easter in a lovely home with family and friends. (John, April 2015)

What a wonderful house - we had an utterly marvellous time. The ambience of the house flows through to anyone who stays here. We loved it and will return, thank you. (Peter, March 2015)

This house was amazing! We were so happy to find this place in Katoomba. All the amenities we could ask for and the kids loved it. So much better than staying at a hotel and with a group of seven, this turned out to be perfect. Thank you for offering such a wonderful place to stay. We will truly regret leaving but thank you for making our stay so relaxing. (Paul, Dec 2014)

An absolutely beautiful house and garden. We could not have asked for anything more. Great for the kids as well as for the adults. We will be back in a heartbeat when we visit the Blue Mountains next time. (Blake, Oct 2014)

What a wonderful home to spend our days away from Sydney. Arcadia on Carrington gives new meaning to the term 'self-contained'. We enjoyed our time here and can't think of anything that we needed that we couldn't find. It is such a beautiful home. The close proximity to walks, tourist attractions and shops made our stay. We loved walking through the garden - the sounds, the bursts of colour and lovely fragrances were delightful. We will definitely recommend Arcadia on Carrington to our family and friends and look forward to visiting again ourselves one day. (Kathryn, Oct 2014)

Great location opposite the Bush with lovely views. Large and roomy for 4 friends on a weekend away.

  • 3 of 5

Great space with many spots to sit in and get away so great for a group travelling together. The garden was untidy and overgrown and the outside of the housw needs some TLC. Nice touch with music playing on arrival. Eclectic mix of artwork , nice feel to the place.

Beautiful country- style house and garden

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples away for a long weekend. We particularly loved the extremely well- equipped kitchen and open plan kitchen/living/ dining area with gas fireplace. And it was located close to beautiful bush walks. We would love to return. The only downside were the double bed and twin beds which our friends found all dipped in the middle. They suggested replacement of spring based with more modern bases and new mattresses.

A great weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Arcadia on Carrington . The home is spacious and very welcoming. The kitchen is fully stocked with heaps of glassware, pots and plates that we didn't go out for breakfast or a dinner one night. The rooms were immaculately cleaned and it felt like a home not just an lodge.. A great place for a few friends or mums to get together for the weekend .

Love it !!!!

Perfect retreat for an escape.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Magnificent garden, house & comfy beds. It was a perfect spot for 5 friends (also work colleagues) to celebrate one girls retirement. We had a wonderful stay and would love to return and certainly would recommend as well.

Footnote - Roosters restaurant was also a great find!
