The cottage is a wonderful place to escape from Sydney.

Mark Gleeson - 17th July 2022

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.
