This stunning 40-hectare property has five boutique self-contained suites perfect for couples. Each of the Eagle View suites has views of the surrounding valley and/or lake, cosy gas log fires and spa baths; although self-contained, guests can order breakfast hampers and special dining packages including cheese and wine, and fondue for two… so there’s no reason to leave the comfort of your room. Wink, wink.

This stunning contemporary home is perched high on a hill, with breathtaking panoramic views of the valley. Ideal for a group of friends or a family, the four-bedroom house was designed by award-winning architect Peter Stutchbury: Invisible House has an open-plan minimalistic design, floor-to-ceiling windows and skylight for natural lighting, and, to keep completely cosy on those cool mountain nights, an open fireplace, outdoor firepit and underfloor heating.

Relive your childhood at Love Cabins, a collection of unique accommodation options set on 240 hectares of private bushland. Our two favourites are the (very grown-up) Treehouse, set high in the treetops and resplendent in natural woods, and the primitive-style Enchanted Cave, which is carved out of bedrock. Both have gorgeous views of the vast property, which is home to gorges, creeks, mountains and rainforests.
Address: Berambing NSW 2758
Average price per night: From $319 per night. Cabins differ in price.
Teetering on the edge of an escarpment, with breathtaking views of Megalong Valley, Hydro Majestic is the mountain’s most iconic stay. Reopening in 2014 after many years of abandonment, the historic hotel has (thankfully) been restored to its former glory of the Art Deco era. It’s well worth a nostalgic visit, even if only to enjoy high tea in the Wintergarden or a cocktail in the notorious Cat’s Alley.
Address: 52-88 Great Western Hwy, Medlow Bath NSW 2780
Average price per night: From $179 per night.
