About the house
Jenolan Valley View is ideally positioned part way along the famous Greater Blue Mountains Tourist Drive. It is near the start of Jenolan Caves road being rated one of the top 5 road bike rides in the country. It is less than 2hrs from most of Sydney and 1.5 hours from Western Sydney. You can get here easily after work on a Friday night and be ready to start your weekend first thing Saturday morning.
Jenolan Valley View is a 5 bedroom resort style home perched high on a cliff with spectacular views of the valley below.
We can supply all bedding or you can bring your own. If you want to cook your own meals then there is full kitchen facilities and an outside BBQ. The large town of Lithgow with its supermarkets, restaurants and clubs is only 10 minutes drive or you might want to have a meal at one of the very charming local country pubs one of which is only a 7 minute drive up the road. The 'Workies' club in town is renowned for its pleasant atmosphere and huge, very well priced meals.
There is perfect telephone reception for all mobile carriers providing reliable hot spot internet from Jenolan Valley View.
Everyone wants to visit the 'big three' - Three Sisters, Scenic World, Jenolan Caves.
In Katoomba there is the world famous 3 Sisters and Scenic World with the skyway, railway and cableway. Jenolan Caves is the most visited inland tourist attraction in the State and consistently receives best tourist attraction award. The views on the drive in alone are worth the trip.
Jenolan Valley View is exactly half way between the Katoomba and Jenolan attractions.
Some people worry about bushfires in the mountains during summer. Jenolan Valley View is ideally located in a mostly rural part of the mountains that has been unaffected by fire in living memory. We look across to the Blue Mountains but are not threatened by the fires that sometimes occur there.
Please be aware that we do not let the house to groups with children who can not swim as the pool and dam are not fenced and are both close to the house.
