"Simply the best homestay experience we have ever had anywhere. Amazing settings, furnishings, amenities and such a lovely garden, it was a dream stay-cation for our family. We would recommend it to any of our friends in a heartbeat, and would love to return. Thank you for making our stay in the Blue Mountains unique and memorable. All the best! Happy 2018!"

Nestled alongside Australia's breathtaking Blue Mountains' World Heritage National Park, Poet's Cottage offers elegant accommodation with the charm of a bygone era, only 90 minutes from Sydney's CBD.
Originally built in 1912, the cottage is located on the edge of the beautiful Valley of the Waters, a quick five minute drive from charming Leura village and a three minute drive from historic Wentworth Falls. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and accommodates up to 7 guests.
This stylishly restored and extended 106-year-old property offers the best of both worlds - tranquility and quiet away from the tourist crowds yet it's just a quick 5-minute drive from charming Leura village.
Self-contained, with plenty of pampering comforts, the cottage offers an open plan lounge and dining area with a new freestanding gas log fireplace and a well equipped kitchen. Snuggle up in the three bedrooms with a queen bed, a double bed, one king single and two single beds.
Watch honeyeaters sip flower nectar while relaxing on your entertainment deck, or wander through the large garden before enjoying the beauty of the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, which backs directly onto the property. Then return to the cottage for a pampering spa.
Poet's Cottage is perfect for couples, families, trekkers and nature and bird lovers.
For a romantic, adventure or family getaway of simple elegance and comfort, spoil yourself and enjoy all the Blue Mountains has to offer. We would like for you to experience our little piece of heaven.
