About the cottage and garden

The cottage is set well away from the house and offers privacy and excellent views of the garden. There is ample off street parking.

Designed in 1946, Saskatoon is a fine example of Paul Sorensen's cool climate garden design, incorporating mature copper beech trees, oaks, maples and silver birch, as well as azaleas, rhododendrons, a woodland walk and a moss walk. The flowering cherry in the front garden is splendid. The garden is spectacular all year round and is absolutely magnificent in spring and autumn. It is tranquil, spacious and has abundant bird life.

-----

Paul Sorensen (1890 - 1983) was a landscape gardener born and trained in Denmark. He had experience working in gardens in Denmark, Germany, France and Switzerland, some of which were in large estates with extensive grounds. He arrived in Australia in 1915 and settled in the Blue Mountains in 1917.

Sorensen is recognised as an accomplished landscape gardener having either designed or influenced the design of many gardens in New South Wales. He was celebrated for his distinctive designs and his mastery of the use of the dry stone wall technique combined with a skill in managing dramatic changes of levels in gardens. He is reported as being extremely versatile with skills in design, propagation, planting and the building and maintenance of gardens of a wide range of size and style.

Beautiful Cottage in a quiet location in Leura

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and especially the gas log fire and comfy bed. Easy drive or walk into Leura shops and Katoomba. The hosts were lovely to greet us on arrival and provided a nice breakfast as well. We will definitely stay again. A great alternative to overpriced hotels in Katoomba.

Cosy cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable 1 bedroom cottage! It had all the basic necessities needed to get by for 2 nights. The shower unit is a bit snug but manageable. Very close to all the attractions the Blue Mountains offers. We also had a personal tour by the owner of the beautiful winter wonderland heritage gardens!

My little retreat

  • 4 of 5

This was my second stay at Saskatoon.

Just like when I stayed in 2015, Saskatoon does not disappoint...we had a lovely cosy time, relaxing, sipping tea, watching a movie or two. I find it to be the perfect retreat from the city and from the craziness of life.

A restorative and romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Back again for another awesome stay in the mountains - this is a great base and the perfect location for walking and hiking. Gordon Falls is close by and we continued on to the Three Sisters and back.

The cottage was as cosy and warm as we remembered, and we appreciated the same thoughtful touches including the breakfast with home-baked bread.

We spent a bit of time at the Mall and had a special dinner at Silk's on Liz's recommendation.

Thanks again Liz and Jane!
