This is a fantastic place for a quiet getaway or a family stay. I was travelling by myself but wouldn't hesitate to come back again with my family. A good layout, well stocked kitchen, lots of local information available, and excellent communication from Gustaw & Carolyn.

Em's Retreat is one of the best accommodation places that we have stayed in all over the world. A real home away from home, centrally located, good value. A great spot to discover the blue mountains. Regards Barry
