Ghost Hill Road
Ranked #1 of 3 Bilpin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 June 2016

My wife and I have just returned from an enjoyable two night mid-week escape at the Ghost Hill Road Retreat in Bilpin.

There are 3 different self-contained cabins to choose from. We stayed in The 'New Moon' Cottage, which, due to its location, is probably the most private and secluded.

If 'bird song' is the only sound you want to hear, then this is definitely the place for you!

Eventhough we were only there for two nights, we had a totally relaxing and de-stressing experience, due to the peace and tranquility.

A nice touch provided by thoughtful hosts Marisa and Greg, is the supply of full breakfast provisions, including bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread, milk, butter, juice and other staples. (included in the price)

There is a full kitchen containing all necessary crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
A coffee machine is provided, together with some coffee pods. There was also an assortment of teas.

The 'New Moon Cottage' has a charming, rustic exterior but contains all the modern conveniences inside.

There is a great log fire with plenty of dry wood, kindling, paper, fire starters and matches.

Our clean and tidy cabin included a romantic and relaxing two person spa bath, air conditioning, a very comfortable bed with electric blankets, dining table and chairs and a generous sized comfortable lounge suite.

There is a good size flat screen TV with Blu-ray player and sound system.
There are even some movies and CDs provided.

There are two bar fridges, one containing your breakfast provisions. We used the other empty one for some beer, wine and bottle water.

There's even a gas bbq on the front timber deck, a timber table and chair setting for four and two deck chairs.

There are lovely private bush views to be had from all windows, where we enjoyed watching a variety of bird life.

The property is set on 20 acres and includes a sign-posted bush trail walk, which is like being in Jurassic Park. (Only without the Dinosaurs!)

In conclusion, The 'New Moon Cottage' is a very cosy, comfortable and relaxing cabin, one which we certainly didn't want to leave.

Thank you Marisa and Greg for an enjoyable stay at your property.

Regards John and Debbie.

Loved this cabin style accommodation for our weekend away on my first Mother's Day with our little babe.
The owners are super friendly, warm and welcoming.
We loved the little touches like the open fire (stocked with wood for us to enjoy both nights) the locally made cumquat dessert wine and the breakfast food in the fridge to cook up!
It was private, warm and cosy and we loved the location.
Thank you for a beautiful weekend, it was a great way to spend my first mother's day and we definitely wish we had booked for three nights instead of two!
We look forward to returning.

We have just returned from a weekend at this idyllic mountain retreat. I love staying on this side of the mountains which is less touristy and built up, but every bit as beautiful, surrounded by peaceful bush and wonderful bird life. The cabin was clean and comfortable and the relatively new owners, Marissa and Greg, have thought of everything you might need for a comfortable stay. On arrival, we were greeted with biscuits and cheese and cider and a generous breakfast hamper, and the kitchen and pantry were thoughtfully stocked so we could stay put and just unwind. It was impossible not to relax with a lovely big spa bath looking out over the bush,comfy lounge chairs to sit on the verandah and read, and in the cool of the evening a romantic fire with a good supply of firewood. We'll definitely be back and maybe next time I'll try out the massage on offer!

A hop skip and a jump (1.5hours) from the craziness of Sydney is this peaceful mountain oasis.
Fresh air, beaut smiles and some furry 4 legged creatures make your acquaintance when you arrive at Ghost Hill Road.

Brenda is an accommodating host, nothing is ever too much bother. It's nice to go away and not to have to think of anything.
And that's definitely part of its charm, the little details like cheese platters, wine, fresh produce all awaiting your arrival. All you really have to do is turn up and wind down.

Winding down is easier than you think. A toasty warm combustion fire with an endless supply of wood to burn and snuggle up in front of. A spa bath for two perhaps? Bubbles and candles supplied. It's all been thought of.

Alternatively, a massage would be in order as well? Brenda has that taken care of and is on offer in the main residence, peaceful, present and ambient.

Three cottages spread over the beautiful countryside are picturesque and plentiful. From bathrobes, comforts for relaxing, DVDs, magazines leave it up to you as to how much or how little goes on.

There are fantastic local attractions to enjoy including the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens at Mount Tomah, indulging in a little tipple at the Apple Bar in Bilpin or taking home a fresh made apple pie from the local producers; you will, (like we did) really benefit from a few days away from suburbia and getting back to basics.
