A weekend in the mountains can bring an unmatched level of calm. The Hilltop Cabin at Logan Brae Retreats is the ultimate place to lean into off-the-radar vibes.

Just over two hours’ drive from Sydney’s CBD, the Blue Mountains stay is perched on the highest peak of the Kanimbla Valley. There’s room for two guests in the studio space, which is equipped with a freestanding stone bathtub beneath panoramic windows. In summer, guests can also enjoy the views from the plunge pool and alfresco lounges.

A kitchenette ensures you’ll be set for a self-contained stay. But the property managers can also organise gourmet meals to be delivered with advance notice if you want to totally put your feet up and relax.

Take your morning coffee to the tune of local birdlife or laze on sundowners surrounded by wallabies. Pack your bug spray and a good book (there are TVs in the accommodation but no wi-fi) and enjoy the seclusion.
