Nestled in rare rainforest between Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine, Gowan Ross has all the ingredients of a relaxing weekend in the Blue Mountains - views, fireplaces, cosy beds and a large country kitchen and garden to cook up a storm in 🍷

The cottage is a wonderful place to escape from Sydney.

The tranquil setting, the fresh air and lush surrounds provide a fantastic holiday for all the family. The cabin has all you could want plus a fireplace to keep warm on cold nights and mornings. Mt Wilson is the jewel in the crown of the Blue mountains and Jeanette's place is the perfect spot to explore the area.
