Ben Boar is situated on the famous Cliff Drive with uninterrupted views from Mount Solitary across the valley floor to Mittagong. Named for the Boar's Head rock formation just a short distance away, it is set up for couples, families and friends.

The space

Ben Boar is a five bedroom property with four upstairs and one conveniently located on the ground floor for those who are happier on the ground. Two king bedrooms upstairs are en suite with the queen and bunk rooms sharing the family bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. The bunk room sleeps up to six in two sets of double bunks and two trundles.
Downstairs the large kitchen and living rooms are great for big family dinners and then sit around the log fire afterwards. There is also a bathroom downstairs.

Guest access

Vehicular access to Ben Boar is via Essendene Rd. There is a double lock up garage plus plenty more off street parking. Guests have the access code provided prior to their stay so can arrive at any time and let themselves in. Early check in or late check out can be arranged prior to your stay.

Interaction with guests

Ben Boar is self contained and so that you can enjoy the absolute peace and tranquility of the Mountains. However, if you need anything we are just a phone call away. The Guest Book should answer most questions though.

Other things to note

We have a two night minimum stay policy. Long weekends are 3 night minimum and Easter has 4 night minimum.

The house was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. Annette and Mike have redone the entire interior to an impeccable standard. The beds were large and comfortable and each had heating blankets. The rooms upstairs were large and gave the feeling of our personal space. 2 of the rooms had ensuites as well which was such a treat. Each room had a personal balcony so reading or listing to music on your own was no issue. Pets downstairs is also very good because it keeps everything upstairs clean. Downstairs is also just very comfy. Loads of place to sit and read and chat and there is a huge TV if you fancy bringing a box set! The man dining table is so gorgeous too and we had dinner on that every night. Parking was very handy with 2 garages and the views and access to the mountains was simply second to none.

We loved the house and location for our annual weekend with my three siblings and their partners. The house was a great base for us with its four queen/king size beds and four bathrooms. The views from the living area, kitchen and two of the bedrooms were delightful. Cahill Lookout is only 300m up Cliff Drive. There is a useful car turning space so that you can avoid backing down the longish driveway track.
