What Makes Elsewhere Different?
In the words of one of our guests - "When you discover Elsewhere, you discover Utopia".
Elsewhere Retreat is a luxurious self-contained cottage tucked away in the majestic Megalong Valley. Set on 40 acres, it is totally private and utterly secluded with no other house visible from anywhere on the 40 acres, yet still within a 20 to 30 minute drive of all the acclaimed attractions of the Blue Mountains.
Every room has large picture windows from which there are views of
rolling hills, distant escarpment or bush. Alternatively guests can swing in one
of the 4 hammocks on the wrap-around verandah and breathe in the glorious mountain air while enjoying the serenity of the views.
We believe that our guests deserve to be treated personally and with attention to detail to make their stay as pleasant as possible. We phone all our guests on arrival to welcome them and leave a personalised note, bottle of champagne, chocolate, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. All beds are made up with electric blankets, and crisp white linen. All bath linen is also provided as is soap, bath gel and moisturiser. Hairdryers are provided in the bathrooms. Both fires are set on arrival and plenty of chopped and split firewood is provided.
For additional heating, there are electric oil heaters in all the bedrooms and overhead ceiling fans for the summer months. For indoor entertainment we provide an eclectic collection of more than 130 CDs, as well as video tapes, satellite TV, novels and board games. For outdoor entertainment we provide 4 mountain bikes and helmets, totem tennis, shuttlecock, football, frisbee and petanque as well as a picnic set....or for the more sedentary there are deck chairs and hammocks.
Cooking can be done on the 7 burner BBQ or in the modernised kitchen with stainless steel European cooktop and double oven, microwave, dishwasher and large fridge/freezer.
Elsewhere Retreat is ideally located to see, in one direction the Zig-Zag railway at Lithgow,and Jenolan Caves, and in the other direction, the Scenic Railway and all the usual attractions at Echo Point, Leura, Blackheath and Wentworth Falls.
In addition, Megalong Valley is famous for its walks including the Six
Foot track as well as for horse riding. There are also vineyards emerging in
