The Chalet is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Blue Mountains. Away from the noise and crowds but still close to all of the fun attractions the Upper Mountains have to offer, including mountain gardens, bush walks, boutique shops, views, antiques, markets, fine dining, horse riding, golf, bric-a-brac, music, festivals, day spas and more.
