Description from the owner
Nestled high amidst the pines and ferns sits Leura Rose, a historic Blue Mountains cottage restored to its original grandeur.
With no detail overlooked, Leura Rose is your perfect Blue Mountains accommodation, perfectly located in a quiet area just tem minutes stroll to Leura village. Surrounded by a lush rambling garden, the cottage is secluded and private – you’ll enjoy having this charming house all to yourself during your stay.
Leura Rose is dedicated to relaxation and indulgence with luxurious period furnishings, a decadent spa bathroom and everything you need for a relaxed (and romantic) stay.
Leura... Rose has three luxuriously appointed bedrooms, all with mahogany four-poster beds, the finest linen, soft lighting and electric blankets to keep you toasty warm.
Kitchen and Dining
The cottage has a fully equipped mahogany kitchen looking out onto the rambling garden, with French doors opening out to a north-facing sun-drenched veranda, complete with alfresco dining and BBQ. A large dining table in the kitchen seats six, and a second dining table in the lounge is perfect for a relaxed meal by the gas log fire.
Watch the colourful birdlife feasting on the various berry trees, whilst sipping away at your favourite Twinings tea or indulge in that wicked hot chocolate with marshmallows, all of which are provided with our compliments.
The spa bathroom may be the highlight of your stay at Leura Rose – a large double spa overlooks the garden, and a gas log fire creates a warm ambience, as do the flickering candles that are provided for your stay. The floor is heated, and soft music fills the room thanks to hidden ceiling speakers linked to the hi fi system.
A second bathroom includes spa bath, toilet and shower, with fluffy towels, bathrobes and fine toiletries included.
Relax in the private drawing room set amongst some beautiful old books, soft lighting and a collection of relaxing music, a perfect place to unwind with your complimentary port.

It was as comfortable and easy as being in my own home with added luxuries
Thank you for an amazing stay and making us feel so welcome. The holiday home was an oasis nestled away from the hustle and bustle with absolute peace and tranquility. Yet close enough to access everything. It was an easy stay and 'just like home' there was want of nothing and there were so many thoughtful touches and elegance that made the stay truly magical. It felt like home and that you belonged to the area rather than being a tourist. Loved the fact that all you needed in the kitchen was there where you would expect it to be. Our diet is quite limited so once we had grocery shopped the rest was so easy. There was also plenty of space simply to relax and just be without being intruded in by the world. Magic. Read more

Thank you for your lovely review. At Leura Rose as at all my Mountain Whispers properties, it's about giving you, the guest, an "experience" like no other. Simply leave the world behind and just be!!! This is simply bliss and what we all need nowadays. Until your returned visit which I hope will not be in the not too distant future.

Beautiful, convenient, unique stay in the Blue Mountains
My husband and I really enjoyed a week stay at the Leura Rose, celebrating our honeymoon. This property is perfect for couples looking to unwind in a gorgeous, quiet setting in a small mountain town. We picked this property randomly, but couldn't have been happier with our choice. The accommodations have a romantic, almost Victorian design. Everything from the bedding to the chandeliers are perfectly fitting for the ambiance curated by Lorraine. The kitchen was awesome - everything we needed to cook was available, and the the appliances were modern. The location is great - a 10 minute walk to the "Leura Mall" with unique shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and a weekend market. The train station is located in the Leura Mall, as well. the add-on services, like champagne, rose petals, chocolates, massages, and facials were purchased by us and we're so glad - it really made the stay that much more special. Some of the highlights: the fireplace in the bathroom with the spa tub, dining outdoors on the lovely patio, the eggs, bacon, and toast provided for breakfast - along with other goodies like wine and port. Nothing was missed in thinking about providing luxury accommodations in this Blue Mountains home. I truly hope we'll be able to be back again! Read more

A very romantic stay
Very good and detailed service, the room, the lighting, music, decoration of every corner in the house, the garden, even the drive way, everywhere we've been, are all wonderful, such a memorable stay! We love the color of the rose room best, and most impressive is the music, we felt like we are so welcomed by the whole cottage! The decoration is beautiful, we love it and we are planning the next stay already.
Very unfortunately, the spa in the second bathroom was not working... and an other unpleasant experience was, I woke up by a sharp sting at middle of night, when I open my blanket there was a big cockroach crawling in my bed!
At last, I'd like to suggest about the breakfast, we had a full litre of milk and 1.5 litre of fruit juice in the fridge, and we've only had very little of both, maybe you could get a couple of smaller packaged ones instead of, then it wouldn't be any wasted.
Finally, thank you Lorraine for your great personalised service, we are definitely coming back soon!
Home away From Home.
Leura Rose is a homely and cosy cottage set in a peaceful street. There is everything available on arrival that you could wish for. Much thought has been put into the little extras to make you feel most welcome. The cottage is only a short stroll into the village which has lovely cafes,gift shops,restaurants etc.
This is a cottage that you will always come back to time and time again. I always find it hard to leave,but know I will be back next year!! Read more

It's always a pleasure welcoming you and your family Debbie to Leura Rose. With your third visit to date which also includes Strawberry Patch, perhaps Varenna or The Gatsby will be on the cards next? Until then, with warmest regards and take care, Lorraine
Elegant luxury with incredible attention to detail
The experience of staying at 'Leura Rose' was overwhelmingly positive right from the moment of booking, when the friendly owner, Lorraine, accommodated our availability and ensured we would have everything we needed.
Not even the professional website will prepare you for the moment you walk in to the house. Her renovation of this lovely property has been exacting and her passion for period detail shines through in every room. I guarantee it will exceed your expectations, no matter how high. Very few places combine beauty with such comfort.
If you're looking for a romantic getaway or a classy place to spend a few days with good friends, I doubt you could do better in the mountains. Why stay at an overpriced impersonal 'resort' like Lilianfels when you can enjoy something far more intimate and luxurious for a reasonable price?
We'll be back and will be encouraging friends and family to treat themselves next time they visit the mountains. Read more

One amazing place to stay!
Once you arrive at the cottage the experience begins. Soft music is being piped through the house, cold wine is in the fridge, port and chocolates are on the coffee table. What more could you ask for. Breakfast supplies, fresh bread and milk are supplied, nothing more you could want. Overall standard of the amenities was first class including the magnificent spa in the bathroom. Wow is the only way to describe this place. Location was good too, just a short walk into Leura village and all the shops. Overall a great experience, would highly recommend to anyone who would like to be truly spoiled. Read more

Spectacularly Looked after!
We came to Leura Rose to relax and thats exactly what we did. Lorraine has prepared her accommodation to perfection with every detail attended to. Leura Rose felt like home, only better! We will be back for sure to try our her other properties also!
The cottage had breakfast supplies as well as wine and was well equipped with tea, coffee, milk, sugar and other necessities for cooking such as oils etc. It was incredibly warm and the endless supply of austar television kept us relaxing for hours.
It is about a 7 minute walk from Leura and a 10 minute drive from Katoomba and all its main attractions (The Three Sisters, Echo Point, Scenic World). Leura itself is charming with plenty of places to shop, eat and generally browse. The chinese restaurant in the main street is a great stop for some chicken and sweet corn soup if you have a hunger attack!
We loved Leura Rose and its environment as well as Lorraine's attention to detail. I thought I would miss the fact that Leura Rose has no wireless internet however I welcomed the break from the cyber-world!
Thanks for everything!! Read more

Hi Preston, thanks for your lovely review and Happy Anniversary to both Debbie and yourself. Now that you've tried Varenna, Leura Rose and The Gatsby, I believe Strawberry Patch is next on the agenda. Take care, Lorraine
The perfect getaway
Leura Rose offers affordable luxury in a very picturesque setting. The attention to detail is world class. Lorraine looked after us superbly, including providing allergy friendly foods for our stay. Everything you could possibly need is provided. We adored the design and look of Leura Rose, inside and out. We recommend staying in this warmly welcoming cottage any time of year, as the gas fireplaces and central heating ensured a very cosy stay in Winter. The under floor heating in the main bathroom was a real treat, too. The location is ideal for exploring the Blue Mountains and the delightful towns of Leura and Katoomba. Lorraine is to be highly congratulated on how superb Leura Rose is for any kind of stay.
A relaxing and wonderful holiday experience.
The service was of the highest professional standard.
The home is well laid out with all the amenities needed for a relaxing comfortable stay. The décor adds to the experience.
Being within the Leura precinct allows the guests to easily enjoy the fine restaurants, cafes and shops that make Leura the destination within the Blue Mountains that it is.
We liked the total experience hence this was not our first stay at Leura Rose Cottage and it will not be our last. We could not more highly recommend the home for any to enjoy a restful comfortable stay in the Blue Mountains. Read more

Leura Rose is a beautiful relaxing house with everything you could need for a special holiday. Thankyou Lorraine for creating a beautiful space for us to holiday in.
Excellence captured in an elegant environment
Leura Rose is tucked away in a quiet leafy street in the quaint village of Leura. From the moment you step through the front door you leave your problems behind and immerse yourself in the elegance and excellence of this unique property. On arrival the fires are glowing, the music is playing and a chilled bottle of wine and chocolates await your consumption on the start of your amazing weekend journey. The house radiates warmth and comfort in a luxurious environment with first class amenities throughout. The location of the property is a short stroll to the charming village where you can indulge in either 5 star dining or a traditional devonshire tea followed by some serious "retail therapy". My weekend at Leura Rose has created some beautiful memories and I feel extremely grateful that I could share in the elegance and grandeur of this exceptional cottage and cannot wait to return to the tranquility and magnificence of Leura Rose.

Christmas at Leura Rose 2012
Everything was as good as described and pictured.
We were after a quiet getaway over the Christmas break and this was exactly what we got. We even had an excuse on Christmas & Boxing day to light the fire, as it became quite cool with misty rain, perfect.
The small village of Leura was great, lots of small shops and nice cafes and restaurants.
Driveway was a small problem as our low sports car does not have much clearance, Nissan 350Z, Ok for normal car.
We had a wonderful weekend at Leura Rose. The cottage is beautiful and everything was just perfect. Loved the fireplace next to the spa bath!
The perfect weekend getaway
The service was prompt and attentive to make sure the house was setup for us and it was spot on! The cottage itself is beautiful inside and out and the mix of old world charm and modern convenience works splendidly.
A handy walk to Leura shops is a great location, though you do get the occasional train noise, but its not intrusive.
The best feature was the spa room with heated floor, an absolute treat! Read more

A home, away from home!
My fiancee Luke and I are expecting our first baby. The last 5 months have been hard on both of us and just needed some time away. Leura Rose gave us that lovely and relaxing break we both needed.
We both loved it... it was a home away from home! :)
Thank you for everything Lorraine and for allowing us to be part of such a great experience.
We'll be back with our little girl for sure.

Leura Rose. A beautifully presented cottage with every luxurious detail expressed in a romantic, fully functional accommodation. The feeling of relaxation and pure bliss surround you as you enter the property and even more so as you open the doors to the cottage. An amazing place to stay for a romantic getaway or simply to enjoy life's little pleasures.
I was hoping for something special and it exceeded my expectatio
Lorraine was very helpful throughout and kept in touch to ensure all was well. Absolutely loved the property which I booked to celebrate my husband's birthday. The cottage was warm and welcoming with lots of little touches that all added up to make it really special. Must have spent ten minutes oohing and ahhing as we walked around the rooms! We all loved the bathroom, and the living room was a great place to relax in front of the fire. Kitchen was well appointed and equipped, and nice and bright in the morning. Loved arriving to a warm, subtly lit and cosy atmosphere. We would all love to come back. Thank you!! Read more

You will not want to leave
We've stayed at Leura Rose a number of times now and we really don't want to go out while we're there or go home when we must. We've run out of superlatives for this stunning home from home. It really is that special. The decor and ambience of the cottage have been lavished with every care and attention and it showed in all aspects of our stay. Not only on this one occasion for our Christmas in July but consistently every time we've been, we're wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Fluffy dressing gowns and slippers, your breakfast preferences catered for, the pre-visit contact and communication clear and professional, spotless accommodation and luxurious furnishings, music piped into various rooms, a spacious and well equipped kitchen perfect to socialise in and prepare great food to share with friends, the spa baths, I could go on. There is nothing to dislike about Leura Rose, it is simply perfect and a delight to share with loved ones and friends alike. It is such a cut above the rest that in some ways it really is a shame to tell everyone how wonderful it is as they'll all want to go, and of course we will again and have already booked for Christmas...

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Leura Rose
We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Leura Rose and we wanted for nothing. Lorraine provides everything and more for a wonderful, relaxing stay.
Particularly liked the fireplace in the main bathroom with spa.
Leura Rose accommodation -should be lableled excellence at its
Our two night stay at Leura Rose was a beautiful experience the owner's pride and application to detail from original booking was managed professionally and efficiently. One only needs to step into this cottage to see the efforts applied creating perfection nothing is left undone. The cottage was spotless and warm. The detail applied to furnishings, spar baths, piped music, two open gas fires, central heating, air conditioning and top this off under floor heating in main bathroom with a huge spar bath in this room sits a open log gas fire with dimmed lights and candles..relaxation at its best.And the two double beds are sooo comfortable. Lorraine I noted 4 star listing on the front window I immediately felt...this certainly needs another star to give a 5 star rating.

Happy New Year Elise. I'm so happy that you enjoyed Leura Rose Cottage and thank you for your lovely comments. I truly look forward to the opportunity to welcome you both back to Leura Rose or one of my other cottages in the very near future. Until then, with warmest regards Lorraine :-)
Like a dream
Our stay could not have been more perfect. The cottage is so well decorated and Lorraine really has an eye for all the little details that made our stay just so amazing.
We will definitely come back!
Warm, cosy & inviting
The Leura Rose Cottage is a fantastic find and we will definitely be back. The service and attention to detail was fantastic and everything was perfectly prepared for our stay.
We made great use of the spa and the gas fires, and the central heating warms the whole place very quickly. The cottage is absolutely immaculate and no expense has been spared in restoring it. It was so welcoming, cosy and comfortable that we ended up spending more time indoors than we intended! Read more

Thanks for such a lovely review Alison. I'm so pleased you managed to experience all the luxuries of Leura Rose Cottage and I truly look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back soon. Many thanks and enjoy your Christmas and New Year. Warmest regards, Lorraine
A beautiful cottage in a gorgeous garden setting
The attention to detail in this enchanting cottage is amazing. Every room is decorated beautifully. Our favourite room was the main bathroom with a large spa bath looking out onto the garden and a gas log fire

A very special place for a very special weekend.
We arrived early Friday evening and everything was as expected - even the music was playing through the multi-speaker system thoughout the house. We found it quite impressive to have the music in every room - including the bathroom, while enoying the sumptuous spa.
The breakfast provisions where both wholesome and substantial.
It was quite a "stroll"the first time we walked to The Leura Mall, but then we discovered the secret - use Railway Pde not Megalong Street :)
The Mall itelf was wonderful. Plenty of nice eateries and cafes. We can thoroughly recommend Le Gobelet Restaurant - superb French cuisine - but don't go there if you are in a hurry, as it's definitely a place to relax and let things take their course (pardon the pun).
A full-day spent around Echo Point in Katoomba helped us work up an appetite and we certainly slept well after experiencing some of the lovely walks.
We cannot fault Leura Rose Cottage and look forward to our next trip to Leura when we hope to try out Strawberry Patch Cottage.

A wonderful Experience
Thank you To Lorraine fromLeura Rose Cottage for making our stay so memorable. This was a treat for our second anniversary and from the moment we walined in the door to soft romantic music to the decor and ambience of the cottage everything was perfect. A special thank you for the Roses I secretly ordered that were just beautiful and well received. We will be back again. Read more

Thank you for your lovely comments Phil and I'm truly glad you both enjoyed your romantic second anniversary. The roses "truly" were beautiful. Many thanks once again and I look forward to welcoming you both back in the very near future. With warmest regards, Lorraine :-)
Pat & John
Everything and more
Leura Rose cottage is a beautiful, comfortable home away from home. The decor and attention to detail is amazing, from the moment we walked in the front door and found soft music playing, heating on and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge, we knew we were in for a wonderful weekend. There is only one thing that we would like to see changed and that is the old TV, to be replaced by a more up to date large screen plasma/lcd/led. Also, a grab rail in the shower would be appropriate.
Lovely and relaxing
The cottage was awesome - we had an incredibly relaxing time. The atmosphere was lovely, perfect for a getaway where the main agenda was to relax.
Atmospheric, tranquil, peaceful, private, romantic
Loved the peaceful, quiet location. Property and furnishings helped you feel like you were stepping back in time to a less hectic and stress-free era. Yet the property was very comfortable, spotless, tastefully finished. Presentation and ambience were exquisite: perfect for a romantic week-end away. The spa bath was the best! The attention to detail was obvious and we could not fault the place. A truly wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who desires a peaceful, private, relaxing get-away.
Beautiful property, will highly recommend to others. Loved all the personal touches - on arrival lights and music on. Very clean, comfortable and ideal location. pefect for a romantic getaway. Will be back
Stunning cottage - wonderful experience
The cottage is spotlessly clean and extraordinarily well-appointed. Lorraine has gone to extreme lengths to ensure her guests are made to feel at home, and her attention to detail is a great credit to her. It was an absolute joy to stay there. Strongly recommended!
My partner and I decided to stay at Leura Rose for the comfort that it promised and it didn't disappoint. The spa bath was probably the highlight, and however cold it was outside we were very cosy inside winding down from a very busy week at work. We would certainly return and I have already recommended the property to friends.
Can't wait to return
They've really have thought of everything at Leura Rose..I really can't fault it at all. From music playing and port / wine on your arrival to the fire place in the bathroom you feel totally relaxed 24/7... Thanks so much Lorraine for creating a place i look forward to returning to in the near future...
Luxurious comfort abounds!
We were bowled over from opening the front door with all the details that made up the perfect getaway. Absolutely every little thing you could need was at your fingertips - right down to marshmallows for your hot chocolate! We were warm and cosy and thoroughly pampered for our whole stay. We hope to return another day. Thank you Lorraine.
Nigel & Rachel
Attention to detail.
Right from the start we were made to feel special. We received a prompt reply to our booking and were asked if it was a special occassion. We were celibrating our 23rd anniversary, so wanted somewhere quiet and romantic to spend some time together.
The day before we arrived we were given details how to obtain the keys and work the security system. When we finally arrived, after driving through rain all day, we were very impressed with the quality and charm of the "cottage".
Upon entering, we were greeted by some lovely soft music playing and the house was already lovely and warm as Lorraine had turned the heating on earlier. Upon inspection of the rooms we were totally blown away by the decor and the high quality finish. From the beautiful four poster beds, to the superb large bathroom with its double spar,under floor heating and its own gas log fire! The kitchen/ dinning room was perfect, fitted with all the latest appliances and utensles you could ever need. The main lounge(yes there are two!)was very spacious and comfortable with its own gas log fire, lovely large comfy couches and large tv and sound system.
The location was lovely, very quiet, with lovely garden and large verandah which would be great to use in summer.
I think the best thing we enjoyed was the attention to detail that has been put into what is a lovely house, and the least thing we liked was having to leave, we could have easily stayed for a week. Read more

blue mountains getaway
Leura Rose Cottage is a beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting. Situated very close to Wentworth falls it is ideal for sight-seeing.
The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
A very charming romantic cottage
We had a wonderful stay at Leura Rose,very relaxing warm & cosy! The main spa room with fireplace was superb.The cottage itself was perfect and was sad to leave...Pete
Helen and Vincent
You certainly have the gift of hospitality and welcome. Our son had stayed previously and he had highly recommended "Leura Rose to us.
On arrival the heating was on, as well as the lamps, and the music was softly playing in the background. The treats as well as necessities for breakfast were also left for us. Thank you. Your house is definitely a home, and the comfortable beds, lounge chairs, very well appointed kitchen and bathrooms (with fluffy towels) were all noticed and appreciated. Everything was of the highest standard. The village location was a good brisk walk away, which we enjoyed on our first evening there. We enjoyed dinner at "Leura Rose" on all three evenings, as we didn't want to leave our warm and cosy abode. Many thanks from us to you for all your attention to detail. It was so difficult to leave so soon. We look forward to staying again.
Helen, Vincent and Peter.
I just wanted to thank you for wonderful weekend. Sarah and I the most enjoyeable weekend and will defintely be staying here again.
Will Certainly Return!
My husband and I booked Leura Rose Cottage for a quick two night break away. Luckily we were able to extend this another night once we were there.
Even though it was summer, the mountain weather set in - cool, foggy and drizzly. When we arrived at the cottage, there was an instant warmth, even down to the music playing.
Leura Rose Cottage is very tastefully decorated. There were breakfast provisions in the kitchen, wine in the fridge and port and chocolates in the lounge.
I would highly recommend Leura Rose to anyone.
Rest and Relaxation
What a wonderful experience it is to stay at Leura Rose Cottage. The Cottage is beautifully furnished and everything you could possibly need has been thought through. The location is quiet and it is an ideal get away for a relaxing weekend to recharge the batteries. Lorraine's attention to detail makes the whole experience easy and enjoyable. There wasn't anything we would have done differently and it is a very pleasant experience to have accomodation exceed your expectations. Thank you for allowing us to visit your beautiful property and to enjoy a quiet hideaway from the rest of the world. We will be back!

A home from home
We recently enjoyed a fantastic two-night stay in Leura Rose with my parents, who were visiting from the UK, and couldn't fault the place. The weatherboard cottage is very special, full of character and with everything a family needs for a stay - two great eating areas, two areas to read/relax and two big bedrooms. The provisions for breakfast are very generous and all the little touches (like wine, chocolates, cookies and mints) went way beyond other similar accommodation. We really hope to return!

Leura Rose Cottage is the perfect getaway. The host's attention to detail is second to none and this only enhances
your stay. We would absolutely recommend the cottage.
Rob and Moreen
What a relaxing and romantic getaway!
We were looking for a romantic, relaxing and peaceful few days away from the chaos of our usual existence. Our stay at Leura Rose was all that and more. From the moment we stepped into the marvelously maintained cottage, drank in the wonderfully perfumed aromas and sampled some of the welcoming goodies, we were in a different world. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
A lovely place to stay
I guess the two questions you have to ask are:
1) would you go back again, and
2) would you recommend it to your friends and family.
The simple answer is yes to both.
It is a lovely place, really well looked after, the decor is special and by the numerous comments in the guest book, all really positive comments.
we have stayed in leura many times leura rose cottage is on top of the list its private relaxing everything is there to make u cosy we never wanted to leave lorraine u have done well we will visit your other propertys in leura i have seen them they look great i recommend to any one u must try leura rose cottage
Our stay at Leura Rose was perfect in every way - just beautiful
My husband & I took our overseas visitors to Leura Rose & it was the highlight of their trip! My friend wanted to move in & stay there! It was a beautiful restful experience for all of us - Lorraine has paid attention to so much detail to make the stay memorable. Thanks so much Lorraine - we will be back!
Brenda & Gavin
Slice of total indulgence
Leura Rose is home away from home, from the time you walk thru the door, you are greeted by relaxing music playing throughout... explore the beautiful home with a glass of Port in your hand and be ready to be astound by the delight of every little detail... from the Ferrero Rocher set on top of your bathrobe to the candles arranged around the spa bath for a romantic night.
We had a fabulous time at Leura Rose, it was a weekend getaway which filled every expectation that we had... and then some!
Thank you so much to Lorraine for allowing us to be part of this incredible experience... it is so much more than just a luxury accommodation house, it's a home!
We look forward to our next getaway.
Leura Rose Cottage is a wonderfully restored Victorian cottage with all mod cons, but done in a Victorian style. Set in Leura in the Blue Mountains, it is a handy 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants. Sumptuous spa baths (2), 4-poster beds, two sitting rooms and a wonderful eat-in kitchen (in the old farm house style), provide you with every comfort. We felt truly pampered and would recommend Leura Rose Cottage to anyone wanting to have a most relaxing stay.

the ultimate getaway
From the moment I made the reservation, I knew that this was going to be the ultimate romantic getaway, and how right I was. The house had such a warm and welcoming feeling as soon as you walked in. The beautiful bathroom with the fireplace was the best. The only down side about leura rose is having to leave. Thank you Lorraine for being such a wonderful host,you should be very proud of what you do. You have every touch perfect.
Thanks again and we will be back soon.
Emma and Graham
The lap of luxury - we were spoiled rotten!!
What a perfect place to spend the second half of our honeymoon!! Our hostess, Lorraine, is an absolute perfectionist, and truly thought of everything: not only was the decor ultra-romantic, but the house is filled with every luxury you could possibly desire. We felt like king and queen for the week - thank you, Lorraine, for making our stay in Leura so very special!!
Greystanes, Sydney, NSW
The quality of Leura Rose was outstanding, everything from the furnishings throughout, right through to the small personal touches, like the surprise robes and slippers. The main bathroom spa has the most impressive indoor spa I have ever seen, and the added warmth of a fireplace makes the experience so incredibly relaxing. I take part in an average of 4 weekends away annually, and Leura Rose is the most spectacular by far. The only small negative is the proximity to the rail line as the passing trains are quite noisy, but other than that, it is a perfect 10!
Frenchs Forest NSW
We had a wonderful relaxing few days at Leura Rose and would recommend it to anyone. Every comfort has been included. Loved the piped music through the house.
Junen and Sarah
Everything about Leura Rose Cottage is perfect...
Leura Rose Cottage is very private and you can't help but relax the minute you enter...
We will be back very soon...
Very nice and comfortable to come home to after a hard days sight seeing, very cozy, romantic and warm.
a very special place
What a beautiful and inspiring place and how fortunate we are to have discovered the "Leura Rose Cottage"
Three days here leave us refreshed and relaxed. There is love , harmony and delight in every aspect every detail and colour - inside and out. Thankyou for sharing and maintaining such a beautiful place- you should be so proud of what you have created. We cant wait to come back
Our annual Leura Weekend
This is the 2nd time Lorraine has looked after us.
After a lovely weekend at Strawberry Patch last year, we didn't think anything could top it.
Leura Rose, wow !!
The house was perfect, the location was perfect, it was all perfect. We walked to the Post Office for a lovely dinner, had lunches in town, shopped extensively, & just relaxed.
My parents were at Strawberry Patch at the same time, so it was lovely to catch up with them too. They were thrilled with their cottage, & the little extras Lorraine sorted out for me, to make their weekend special.
Thank you again for looking after all of us, Lorraine.
See you again next year, for sure.
Comfortable, tasteful and complete
Everything you might need awaits you at Leura Rose, but the memorable things are those that you may not need but seriously enjoy - like a gas log fire in the palatial main bathroom with double spa bath, the comfy lounges and beds, the central heating and sipping on the red left for you by the host. The furnishings are both tasteful and comfortable consistent with the overall decoration of the cottage. The cottage is 5 star accommodation at its best and we will be returning soon.
Matt & Jen
Relaxing and Romantic
Beautiful setting and very comfortable. The fire in the bathroom with the spa is an absolute winner.
No Need To Stay anywhere Else!
I go to the mountains to do bushwalking and staying at a cottage like Leura Rose makes it near impossible to leave!
It has absolutely everything you could possible need for a beautiful, relaxing and unwinding experience. If you can imagine yourself in a gorgeous, bubbling, double spa with a glass of something delicious in one hand and and gazing into the gas fire, well it doesn't get much better.
Mike and Lucy
We were spoilt by the standard of the accommodation .
We booked it on-line with the usual concerns as to how the reality would match the website . The reality exceeded the promises per the website and we could not fault the care and attention to detail afforded by the accommodation.
A great stay that had us relaxing as soon as we entered. The property was immaculately presented and the special touches including the wine, port, chocolates and breakfast supplies were fantastic. Our stay went to fast. The only downside we had to the place was we found the pillows too hard for our liking (next time we will just bring our own) and the drive way was a bit steep. We have a new camry and each time we left the property we ended up bottoming out, so in the end we parked on the street. All in all a very relaxing place. I am sure we will be back.
Robbie & Juzzy
Wonderfully relaxing experience!
Leura Rose went above and beyond our alreay high expectations. Is a great base to explore the area from or just a nice place to read good book. One of the first places that is better than what the web site shows. Lorraine thinks of the little things that count. We were sad to leave but will be back.
Rob & Peter
An amazing and memorable experience
From the moment of arrival through until we left three days later, Leura Rose Cottage never ceased to provide a wonderful, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. The features of the property gave us a romantic get-away; relaxing in the evenings in front of the fireplace following a warm spa bath in the wonderfully appointed bathroom.
The comfortable and relaxing bed, and well set-out kitchen added to the experience
a short stroll to the main streets of Leura gave plenty to do in the local area, while more attractions were just a short drive away.
Indulgent romantic getaway
Preferring something intimate rather than some silly 5star hotel, we were very pleased to have chosen Leura Rose for our babymoon. Charming and luxurious but also homely, the attention to detail is what makes this cottage the deluxe experience it is.

Leura Rose is now my place to stay in the Blue Mountains
After looking at countless properties on the internet I decided on Leura Rose. I wanted a place that was romantic, that would have a two person spa, fire-place, central heating, TV, music, IPOD dock, be immaculate, beautifully decorated and presented, private and... close to The Mall at Leura for shopping and dining - yep, I wanted it all.
When we walked into Leura Rose we found there was piped music, central heating, candles and mood lighting turned on for our arrival - fabulous!
There are two gorgeous bedrooms and it took me a few minutes to finally decide on the bedroom with the moody plum and gold theme, plus there were two fluffy bathrobes neatly folded on the bed (with slippers) and two chocolates which helped me decide.
The spa bath has views looking out into the private garden, this bathroom has generous proportions with a lovely gas flame fire-place and coupled with the candles, central heating and piped music really topped off our experience.
There is a lounge room with another open gas flame fire place, two comfy lounges, satellite TV, DVD's and a sound system with a selection of CD's (this is where the piped music comes from). Lorraine's CD selection really suits the cottage and the mood - it was cool outside but warm and relaxing inside.
The kitchen is also spacious but cosy, and very well equipped with modern appliances and like the rest of the cottage - immaculate. As the cottage is north facing, we had gentle autumn sunshine inside and outside on the deck.
Leura Rose is a very pleasant, easy short walk along Railway Parade to The Mall. This village has some great shopping for clothes, home-wares, art, craft, candles, jewellry, as well as day spas, massage, etc., and delicious food in cafes, restaurants and deli's.
We've been coming to Leura for years, but now know that we will always come back to Leura Rose because it 'feels like our weekender' - ticks all the boxes - just perfect. Highly recommended for 1 to 2 couples.
Location close to Katoomba

Excellent thank you lorraine for letting us stay in your beautiful home.The sound of lovely music as we open the door a lovely warm glowing fire it was great to unwind in the spa with a wine then to sit in front of the fire and watch a DVD so relaxing absolutely beautiful we did not want to leave thank you again Lorraine for making our weekend perfect.
Ambere and Justin
What more could anyone ask for?
Words cannot describe 'Leura Rose'!!!
Beautiful, amazing, wonderful, magnificent... none of these words even come close to describing this home away from home. No detail was left out, nothing more could be wanted for and most of all, once having stayed here, one will never want to leave.
THANK YOU Lorraine for allowing us to experience the wonder that is 'Leura Rose'. You are an amazing host who has a definite knack for what you do. Every inch of the house is stunning, hard to decide if the master bathroom with fireplace was our favourite, or the lounge with roaring fire, or the gorgeous kitchen that just inspires one to cook up a storm (even on holidays!).
We loved our stay here, and cannot wait to come back. 'Leura Rose' will always hold a special place in both of our hearts as it is where we spent our first night as an engaged couple! :-)
Splendid Lorraine! Simply Splendid!
Deborah and Carl
5 star luxury, tucked away in a private hideaway cottage!
After a stay at Strawberry Patch with Mountain Whispers, we really didn't think it could get much better, ... but at Leura Rose it did! As we walked through the door it was quite simply, .. wow! The fabulous decor and 5 star quality feel aside, it was all the extra thoughtful touches provided by Lorraine that made the stay so very special .. from romantic candles and fresh flowers, to chocolates, homemade preserves and even marshmallows for the hot chocolate! When we could tear ourselves away, we were just an easy 10 minute walk into the picturesque village of Leura, with a selection of shops and restaurants to choose from ... all in all the perfect romantic holiday getaway break! Thank you Lorraine.
Iain & Debbie
Blue mountains treasure
The moment you enter through the gates of Leura Rose Cottage you know that your time spent here will be special. The house is set in a picturesque garden in a lovel quiet street.
Upon entering the cottage you immediately feel welcome. Lorraine has excelled herself with the decor and her unique special touches.
We were relucant to leave this beautiful cottage even for an outing but because there are so many attactions nearby we decided to do a walk at the nearby 3 sisters in Kootomba, followed by a saunter through the grounds of Everglates an historical home set on 12.5 arces of beautifully landscaped gardens. We also found Lerua village so quiant with such exceptional resturants.
Our time spend here was too short and next year we have promised ourselves to come back for at least a week if not a little longer.
This cottage that Lorraine and Rodger have created is a pure pleasure to have stayed in.
Leura Rose is an absolute treasure!!
A luxurious and spacious place to have some fun!
Leura Rose has everything you need for a perfect weekend, whether you like cooking (it has everything!) or relaxing with good, local gourmet takeaway. Each room has been decorated thoughtfully, with practicality and convenience in mind. It is spacious and has a lovely outside area to enjoy the fresh mountain air. Lorraine will prepare the cottage so carefully for you with comfy robes and champagne etc... it is quite a special experience!
Beautiful cottage with great attention to detail, all the personal touches made it so welcoming. Arriving on a cold, wet day to the sound of Michael Buble piped around the property, port and marshmallows, an excellent DVD library, dressing gowns and slippers was absolutely perfect. And what bathrooms! Great, quiet location within Leura, although we took longer to walk to the village than the details suggested. Highly recommend it - the best place we stayed in on our travels and very good value for money.
Every room had the "wow" factor which made our stay so enjoyable
From the minute I spoke to Lorraine on the phone to enquire about Leura Rose Cottage I knew I had chosen the right place to stay out of the 300 places advertised on the net and value for money especially as we had the cottage to ourselves.
Lorraine was warm and friendly as she described how she had enjoyed decorating the property with attention to detail to ensure comfort and enjoyment and that's just what she delivered. As we entered the front door and peeked into the two bedrooms with four poster beds we said "this is very nice" and the following two sitting rooms were just as beautifully furnished and decorated until we walked into the kitchen and spa bathroom and we both went "wow" this is very very nice. Everything we needed was there from the adequate continental breakfast provisions to the bubble bath lotion and white fluffy robes.
The location being a 15 minute walk for us to the village is on the high side of the road where we enjoyed sitting on the verandah and looking out over the view and watching the black cockatoos. The outside of the house is very pretty and private. Our stay was one of complete enjoyment.

Heaven on Earth
An absolute gem. I have stayed in many places all over the world and this has to be NUMBER 1. The attention to detail was perfect it made you feel so at home but with utter luxury added. I would definately recommend this. Lorraine could not do enough for you. Thanks again Lorraine.

"A Sublime Sensory Experience"
"Leura Rose Cottage" - the name itself stimulates the imagination with various images. Upon arriving and opening the front door, the images truly come to life. With my first gasp and step back into a bygone era in time, for the next six glorious days I closed the door on the so called modern world we now live in.
At no point during my escape at "Leura Rose Cottage" did I think about what I had left behind, a true testimonial to the creation of the ambience our hosts "Lorraine and Roger Allanson" have achieved through their passion.
Every fantasy was catered for and every requirement met beyond any and all expections. From the totally secluded location, the luxurious furnishings, relaxing selected piped music, flickering candles, strategic dimmed lighting, wine, port and chocolates awaiting us together with our plush bath robes and slippers,a fully equipped kitchen wanting for absolutley nothing and breakfast provisions, every need and possible want was considered.
When you walk across the heated bathroom floor towards your spa bath filling with bubbles and submerge yourself looking out through the stained glass bay windows into the garden, you literally stop and take pleasure in not only where you are but what you have that has allowed you this experience.
The standard of service is beyond "outstanding", and "Leura Rose Cottage" has provided me with an everlasting memory of the celebration of a milestone birthday together with an appreciation of what "life" should really be about - appreciating every moment.
Until we meet again... With gratitude for entrusting me with your beautiful home and providing a haven where I could focus on "every moment".
A little piece of heaven......
This place is literally perfect. We love the Blue
Mountains area for walking but we didn't want to
go out when stayed in Leura Rose.
From our first contact with Lorraine (the owner)
we received a professional service via phone and
email so we had high expectations of our stay.
Friends had stayed in the sister cottage,
Strawberry Patch which we'd visited and fell in
love with. Every attention to detail was
considered and everything about the property said
welcome from the music playing on arrival, the
lights glowing invitingly, the Christmas
The decor and furnishings are of a very high
standard, every care has been taken to literally
every detail to create an experience, not a stay.
This is somewhere you won't want to leave, an
oasis of comfort and relaxation.
The property has two bedrooms which fill with
light in the morning and you are woken with
birdsong. Both are tastefully decorated and so
beautifully presented that it seems a shame to
sleep in them.
We have stayed in some amazing hotels around the
world but this place had it all and more. Luxury,
sophistication, comfort, style and charm with a
sense of personal service and care that a chain
establishment could never replicate. The rooms
are exactly as they are on the website. Small
touches such as underfloor heating in the
bathroom, the jacuzzi bath, the candles, music
piped to the kitchen from the CD player in the
sitting room make the experience a cut above the
rest in every way.
If you want to create an impression, treat
yourself or just be, then this is one of the best
places in the world to do it.

Perfect place to stay
The presentation of Leura Rose was faultless. We felt as if it was our own home in the beautiful town of Leura. Very relaxing and enjoyable. We were left alone for the entire stay, no check-in, no check-out, this added to the unique nature of our time there. From the initial enquiry to the end of our stay everything was done well without any hassle. We recommend this property without hesitation or qualification, thankyou Lorraine

Truly Wonderful and Memorable Experience
I was impressed with Lorraine since the correspondence of making the reservation. She seemed so kind over the phone, very informative and was very particular about small/minor details in attempt to accomodate to all our needs. We fell in love with Leura Rose the minute we walked into the charming cottage, where the scent of rose was everywhere and the welcoming music was left on. It is obvious that a lot of care and attention was given to making Leura Rose truly wonderful as it is; the place is very well coordinated in theme/decoration and totally well-equipped with everything you might possibly need. The main bathroom/jacuzzi seems to be the highlight for most (we can understand why!) but we also liked the kitchen/dining room, the peaceful breakfast on the patio with the greeting and sweet melody of bird chirping, and after-dinner lingering in front of the fire place in the living room. The place definitely felt like home, located in a quiet neighborhood, yet only 5 blocks away from the vibrant yet lovely town of Leura in the beautiful blue mountains. We congratulate Lorraine for the job well done! One little thing we might want to suggest it that the bedrooms are a bit too dark to our liking, and we would prefer a bit more of lighting. But that's the only complaint we could really think of.
From the moment we walked in the door, it was easy to tell that a lot of care was put into Leura Rose. No detail was overlooked from the wine and chocolates to provisions for breakfast. It rained and was very foggy while we were in the Blue Mountains so it was very nice to have such an exquisite place to hang out in. The bathroom is amazing from the heated floor to the large jacuzzi tub and overhead heat lamps. Can't say enough good things about Leura Rose. If we visit Australia again, will be sure to go!!
Gorgeous Holiday Stay!
Lorraine goes above and beyond to create the perfect stay for you. The
property is absolutely gorgeous and clearly very well maintained. We will
definitely look to visit again in the near future. Thanks Lorraine!
True comfort in lavish surroundings
Thankyou Lorraine for providing us with such a wonderful environment in which to spend our holiday. Every detail was well thought out and there was nothing more we could have asked for. We will definitely keep Leura Rose in mind for our next trip to the mountains.
Vaucluse, NSW, Australia
My husband and I stayed with our best friends at Leura Rose Cottage and were extremely impressed. Lorraine' attention to detail was outstanding - from the fireplace in the bathroom, huge spa bath, piped music throughout, beautiful gardens, amazing kitchen, gorgeous bedrooms, port and wine etc where do I stop?
We had such a fabulous time we have booked our next stay in 2 month's time. We found it hard to leave the house in the mornings to go sightseeing...and hurried home every afternoon to relax on the sunny verandahs.
Thanks Lorraine you have done a marvellous job!!

home sweet home
Well there isnt much to say when Leura Rose Cottage is just perfect.Everything was just simply wonderful.The furniture had loads of character,food was lovely along with the wine.The bath robes and slippers finished it off i think. Well done,keep up the great work.
Leura Rose is the quintessential Blue Mountains weatherboard house, complete with cottage garden and gas heating throughout. The home is in perfect condition, beautifully decorated and equipped with every luxury, including disposable slippers and dressing gowns. Best of all was the bathroom - piped music, gas fireplace, candles and a champagne bucket thoughtfully placed next to the enormous spa bath. Lorraine has considered her guests' every need including port, a bottle of wine, chocolates. Absolute perfection, right down to the marshmallows to place in the hot chocolate. Have already booked a return stay.
This was 5star treatment right from my very first contact with Lorraine through our 4 night stay and beyond. Period homes are a favourite with us, and Lorraine has restored and decorated this home with the utmost attention to detail and luxury with no expense spared. Arriving to a heated, candle-lit home with music softly playing throughout the home (and note I use "home" and not "house") was just bliss. As to which room is the best - can't decide as each room exceeds its purpose. And that gorgeous sunny verandah - just the place to escape to with a book, and can just imagine drinks of a summer evening.
As an immigrant to Australia the Blue Mountains is our favourite place with the best bushwalking and Leura Rose is central to it all. But for those just wanting to laze about, one can't go wrong with Leura - great variety of shops and some very good dining. And then at the end of the day return to Leura Rose for a romantic spa bath, with some champagne and oysters thrown in for good measure. Absolute bliss.
Thank you so much Lorraine, your efforts are appreciated more than words can say.

From the moment we opened the front door we were transported and welcomed into the most beautifully transformed cottage.
Every single touch, every single thought given over to our absolute comfort ... music, candles, rose petals, wine, port, chocolates, bathrobes, slippers, and everything we needed in the kitchen to never have to leave if we didn't want to ... and we hardly did - our first night at a local restaurant saw us eat our entrees out but get our mains takeaway so we could race back to our cosy oasis!
While the entire cottage is exquisite (it's like a treasure box that keeps revealing new little pleasures and delights the more you explore), the main bathroom was a highlight - huge spa bath (big enough for the two of us!) with fireplace and under floor heating looking out a beautiful bay window to the cherub in the backyard.
Leura Rose ... romantic, peaceful, warm, inviting ... absolutely magical and truly memorable.
Thank you for everything Lorraine, we can't wait to be back. Rox and Rod

Relaxing and romantic getaway
From the moment we walked in the ambience set the scene for a perfect weekend. The house was toasty warm, music was on, candles were lit and wine was set. All we had to do was enjoy. Great local restaurants and cafes a stone's throw away, and a wonderful home kitchen ensured we had all situations covered. Once settled into the house, the gas fires and central heating were great, the spa was fantastic and the bed - super comfortable. Thanks for such a wonderful weekend, we'll definitely be back!
Wow Wow Wow!
Impeccably presented. Atmosphere top the the class - music, warmth, lighting all there on arrival. Fireplace in bathroom. I enjoyed the two days and want to go back.

Beautifully decorated Leura Rose provided a very pleasant surprise particularly with the attention to detail that the owner had gone to. The quality of the furnishings, kitchen , bathrooms was first class. The cottage is thoughtfully set up for the guests arrival with candles lit music playing and air conditioning or heating switched on along with meticulous cleaning between guests.
a gem of a place
Stayed here for my birthday and from the moment I walked in I knew I had picked the right place. It is absolutely lovely! So fantastic in fact that I thought I might just squat on the premises once my two blissful days were up. You'll know exactly what I mean when you lie in that spa with the candles flickering and the fire flaming away. The beds were soooo comfy and the lounge room and kitchen make you feel so welcomed that you start to believe that this is home. Sit outside on the verandah in the morning with your cup of tea or coffee and listen to the birds....so peaceful. Lorraine you have created a wonderful haven and I just cant wait to get back. Thankyou so much for everything.
A perfect winter getaway
We found Leura Rose Cottage absolutely amazing. The comfort, ambiance, location and all the little well-thought of extras contributed to a perfect, winter holiday. Definitely we'll be back!
WONDERFULLY COSY WARM AND RELAXING COTTAGE
My family and I enjoyed this most wonderfully warm and comfortable cottage. Every attention to detail was considered by our wonderful host Lorraine. We loved the open fire in the huge bathroom and the very comfortable four poster beds. Cant wait to visit again, a definite little treasure in the mountains!!
'AH, THE SERENITY'
AS SOON AS YOU ENTER THE FRONT DOOR, YOU CAN SENSE AN AIR OF TRANQUILLITY AND WARMTH THAT IMMEDIATELY PUTS YOU IN A RELAXED FRAME OF MIND.
THE ACCOMMODATION AND ATMOSPHERE WAS THE PERFECT REMEDY WE NEEDED FOR OUR ESCAPE FROM THE KIDS, WORK, THE KIDS, TRAVELLING TO AND FROM WORK, AND DID I MENTION THE KIDS !!!!!!!!!!!
A TRULY MAGICAL PLACE TO SHARE WITH A LOVED ONE.
WE ARE COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS WHEN WE WILL BE BACK FOR ANOTHER 'GREAT ESCAPE' AT LEURA ROSE COTTAGE.
P.S. IT WAS BLOODY BRILLIANT !!!!!

Leura Rose was very tastefully decorated with every need catered for - warmth (central heating), comfort and beauty. Close to Leura and general Mts attractions. The spa was luxurious and the attention to detail much appreciated - port, wine, DVD, Jams, music ect. We will be back.

We went to Leura Rose for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. The house was warm and cosy and beautifully furnished. There was a fireplace in the lounge and one in the bathroom with a double spa bath - an incredibly relaxing place to be on a cold winters night. There were great provisions in the kitchen - you need not bring anything at all. There was a nice choice of music and movies to enjoy. Every detail is taken care of here and we certainly felt at home and very relaxed and refreshed after our weekend stay.

Absolutely beautiful, another world!
From the moment my friend and I arrived to celebrate her birthday it was like being in another world. "I just can't believe it!" was my friends constant refrain as this was a surprise gift from her family,a special treat and indeed Leura Rose Cottage lived up to that! They had even catered for special extras accordign to her family's wishes!
What other guests had said was so true, the attention to detail was excellent and evident in each and every beautiful room. The old world charm of the furnishings and decor just added to the 'other world' atmosphere. My only misgiving was not sharing it with my husband, so I'll be back to treat him one day to this special place.
A perfect place to spoil or for romance.

Peaceful and Relaxing
We had a wonderful 2 nights relaxing at Leura Rose Cottage, a beautiful, romantic, cosy and peaceful retreat for the perfect "get away from it all escape"! We both absolutely loved it, from the gorgeous bedroom and cosy lounge with fire, and best of all the luxurious bathroom with spa and fireplace - the perfect place to unwind!- wish we had been able to stay longer and definitely recommend Leura Rose to others.
We would love to stay at one of Leura Rose's sister cottages next time.
Thanks Lorraine for a wonderful time and your attention to detail at Leura Rose.

We just spent an amazing three days at Leura Rose cottage.
Leura Rose is a recent addition to the Mountain Whispers group (Strawberry Patch and Varenna cottages), opening in April 2009. The attention to detail cannot be overstated. Everything you could possibly want has been included. We were so impressed that we (almost) didn?t touch anything in case of upsetting the ambience! Gorgeous music filled the house that had been warmed up for our arrival. One of many considerate gestures made by Lorraine, the owner of Leura Rose. We cannot thank Lorraine enough for making our stay so memorable and relaxing.
It would be easy to write many, many pages attempting to describe Leura Rose and how its beauty and all the thoughtful touches positively affected our stay. The cottage?s description is honest in every respect. Perhaps the biggest compliment we could give Leura Rose (and Lorraine) is that there was nothing we didn?t love about this cottage. We were extremely reluctant and sad to leave. We will always consider Leura Rose as the pinnacle of all Blue Mountains accommodation.
It was simply perfect.
