Whenever we as a family go up to the mountains, this is our place we stay. Lovely staff, clean, has all you need (kitchen stuff), well sized rooms, cosy fireplace, firepit, tennis court, space for the kids to go crazy... Give it a go - it will pay out! And in case you are a passionate trail runner or hiker:...

The quiet, tranquil setting along with the fantastic facilities enabled us to enjoy our time together and come away feeling rested and restored. The kids spent lots of time in the pool and play area, hubby got to cook a bbq dinner, i went trail running through nearby...

The federation Gardens and Possums Hideaway was in a perfect location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cottage was very clean and tidy, gorgeous design with amazing gas fire. It rained all weekend (nothing to be done about this) however we were never bored as there is so much to do. ie. tennis, badminton, volley ball, swimming, outdoors...

Stayed here last minute with the kids for a little getaway out of sydney. Was perfect. clean, tidy and comfortable. The pool could've been a tad warmer but the kids didn't care. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you Katherine for reviewing your stay with us - we are pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you found the pool a little cool. It has been a real juggling act recently - with the dramatic temperature changes - to get it just right! Generally, the pool is heated to 27 degrees. We hope...

We stayed in the Possum Retreats for a few nights. Basic, comfortable and cosy and all we really needed as we were out a lot of the time exploring. Great location and easy to find. We were lucky enough to essentially have the place to ourselves, too (we went mid week). I did find a dirty tissue between the bed...

It was overall a great little weekend getaway. Perfect for relaxing, with the lookouts surrounding the suburb. Not too far from the Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls. You have the Scenic World within the Three Sisters and you are also a couple hours away from the Jenolan Caves. Night time is beautiful in the cottage.

“Would be good to be in one of the 'back cottages' to look out over the bush and be a bit more private as opposed to the front ones. ”
