“Amazing property, great location, extremely well presented.”
Reviewed July 2, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Vareena, Leura was absolutely beautiful. Very well presented with all the comforts for a weekend stay in the beautiful mountains. Lorraine was so accommodating to my requests. The kitchen was so well stocked we didn't have to leave our accommodation in a hurry and really enjoyed the space we were in. The bathrooms were immaculate and the bedrooms beautifully presented and clean. The location is perfect - so close the the main street of Leura. I would defiantly stay again.

“Open the front door and step back in time.”
Reviewed June 25, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Inside Varenna you are greeted with a warm entry and music gently playing. The port waiting in the loungeroom with a gas log fire is hard to pass by. Next deciding which of the opulent bedrooms to choose, all with stunning décor that envelops you in comfort. Follow through to a fully equipped kitchen with more than enough provisions for breakfast and then to finish with the spa bathroom, champagne and candles if you choose. The property is extensive and worth a wander through the gardens outside. Another plus is the 5 minute walk to the main street for shopping and restaurants. This is our 4th stay in one of Lorraine's Mountain Whispers properties and Lorraine's attention to everything never fails to impress. The worst part is having to leave.

“Ideal mountain getaway within an easy walk to Leura.”
Reviewed June 4, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Varenna is beautifully appointed, immaculate, and presented with pride. We had originally booked a different cottage in Leura for a girls birthday celebration. Unfortunately, the owners of that property double booked and left us stranded. We found Varenna at the 11th hour and were fortunate to be able to make a booking. Lorraine called to ask a few questions about the occasion, including preferences in wine, bread, etc. and then rushed to the house to prepare for our stay. An hour later the house had been made ready for us. Heating on, fridge stocked with wine, milk, bacon and eggs; robes, slippers, and chocolates in the rooms; and port by the fire. After experiencing Lorraine's attention to detail I would confidently book any of her Mountain Whispers properties.

Thank you for your lovely review of Varenna and my services Sharyn. So happy I could assist you at the 11th hour and to assist with making Melissa's milestone birthday a memorable one. We certainly couldn't have the birthday girl unhappy. Very happy to oblige and I certainly look forward to the opportunity to welcome you all back to a Mountain Whispers property in the future. Until then, take care and with thanks again, Lorraine :-)

“The perfect romance”
Reviewed January 8, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The property is absolutely magnificent. It was beyond our expectations. It felt like home and we really didn’t want to leave.

The home is warm, inviting and elegant, just magestic!!!

Starting from the moment we arrived and having Michael buble playing...he is our favourite... to the delicious antipasto platter and goodies in the fridge.

In the evenings we would lie in the grass listening to the sounds of wildlife all around us.

We had the best nights sleep in the master bedroom and we cooked up a storm in the fantastic kitchen.

It was absolutely perfect!!

We can’t thank you enough for all your assistance in making this weekend truly unforgettable.

We certainly look forward to returning.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed September 23, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

As soon as you step in side this beautiful house, you feel instantly relaxed as you are greeted by music playing and port, wine and chocolates on the living room table. The location is a few minutes walk from the station so easy to get to if you travel by train like we did. There are plenty of provisions in the kitchen for tea, coffee, hot chocolate which you can enjoy relaxing by the open fire in the spacious living room once night sets in and it gets colder. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a relaxing weekend. As well as being close to the station, it is not far to walk into town for shops or places to eat. This was out third stay here and we have loved it every time. I am sure we will be back.

“Making Family Memories”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

All six of our family (three generations) arrived at Varenna on a cool winter's afternoon for a return visit. We opened the front door to a wonderfully warm and welcoming home once again. The lights were switched on, as well as the heating and relaxing music was playing quietly in the background. After our trip from the city it was so thoughtful to find afternoon tea ready in the kitchen.
All the facilities are perfect and the very comfortable beds induced a perfect night's sleep for all. Our granddaughters were thrilled with their own beautiful room with their favourite packets of sweeties on their beds. We did enjoy the bountiful supply of fresh eggs, bacon, toasting bread and tea and coffee which is very adequate for several lingering breakfasts. Many thanks Lorraine for the French champagne for my hsuband's birthday. The position of Varenna is ideal and a short walk to the village of Leura.
The garden is enchanting too and we all enjoyed exploring it's little nooks and crannies.
Thank you so much Lorraine for a wonderful return stay. Can't think of anywhere that we would rather return to.

“Perhaps the most beautiful house in the blue mountains”
Reviewed April 29, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Stunning house with a beautiful garden. Could easily spend an hour just walking around the house and checking out all the great little decorations, ornaments, statues etc. Didn't even want to leave the house. Great shops just down the road with lots of cool things to buy for your home.

Plenty of extra comforts such as heated floors in the bathroom. Option of a personal chef was nice. Lorraine is very easy to deal with. Already planning a return.
