Madison's Mountain Retreat is a peaceful farmstay in Kurrajong Heights, on acres bordering the Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Parks. Madison's is about an hour from the Sydney CBD. Secluded with stunning scenery yet easy to reach, we have 8 self contained cedar cottages and 2 refurbished train carriages. Each can accommodate up to 5 people. Every spacious cottage has a cosy log fire, kitchenette, TV and DVD player. Some cottages have a private spa, and one is wheelchair accessible.

Madison's is ideal for family holidays with the kids - have an adventure when you collect eggs for breakfast or help us feed the alpacas every day. Venture forth to feed your scraps to the goats.

Recently, Madison's has hosted family reunions, well-being retreats, workplace getaways, and other special events. Perfect for groups of families or friends to stay at Madison's at the same time.
