Note that firewood is not supplied however it can be purchased from the local service stations.

Carawatha provides convenient access to local attractions, including the Campbell Rhododendron Gardens, Baltzer Lookout, and Hanging Rock. These offer stunning views of the Grose Valley and a chance to experience the Blue Mountains' natural wonders.

The property features spacious living and lounging areas, a rear deck for outdoor relaxation, a modern kitchen, and a contemporary bathroom. Two slow combustion fireplaces ensure that you stay warm and cozy during your stay.
