We have stayed at Holly Lodge twice previously. This stay 2 other couples and a child came with us. Everyone loved the place. The room with all those toys was truly helpful. Our little friend thoroughly enjoyed herself. It was great to have the fireplace and the airtight stove. We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving weekend and the roast turkey we prepared was delicious. Appliances and equipment all worked very well. We made good use of the stereo. It took us a while to get the dvd player to play the dvds we brought but it did work in the end. They might want to update that equipment. Loved the birdlife. Easy to walk around the neighbourhood. It is a quick drive to places like the 3 Sisters and Govett's Leap. Thanks again Holly Lodge we will be back.
Holly Lodge is a cosy cabin in the Blue Mountains and the perfect pet friendly getaway. As we drove up the driveway past beautiful Holly trees we were met by a warm cosy cabin and all our cares and city stress just melted away. The owners have put a lot of love into the cabin and it felt like coming home.
It was a wonderfully cold Blue Mountains weekend which we used as the perfect excuse to relax in front of the large fireplace.
The owners have thought about everything for a relaxing stay, leaving us soaps and cookies and even stocking the cupboards with essentials such as sugar and tea. They also leave some seeds to feed the local birds. We loved having early morning coffees on the back porch while watching the King Parrots and Rosellas eating and playing.
The rooms are spacious with big,warm, comfortable beds. The loft is very special with its own lounge set and beautiful views of the surrounding forests.
Our pets LOVED it! The puppies explored the whole property and when they were too tired from all the excitement they fell a sleep in front of the fireplace. The 4 budgies chatted away with all the local birds. Thank you so much for providing a safe environment where we can take our pets with us on holiday.
We'll definitely be back! :)
This was our third stay at Holly Lodge. It's a really great place to just relax or take advantage of the activities that the Blue Mountains offer. The house is adorable, clean, cosy and welcoming, two fireplaces with plenty of firewood. Even pets are welcome - our little dog loves it there. All this in a bushland setting. What more could you ask for? And an absolutely great place to enjoy Christmas in July. In case you're wondering, I am not being paid to write this review by the owner, our family just loves staying there so much so yes I may be a little bit bias.
Would I recommend Holly Lodge to a friend? Already have and have been for years.
