It doesn’t feel like a whole year since we celebrated, yet here we are. June 21st marks the 17th anniversary of the creation of Mountain Whispers and we are proud to have welcomed many many many guests during that time.
Last year we shared a little of the history of the Mountain Whispers Collection which is always wonderful to reflect on and perhaps inspire some of you to come and try a different property this year, or even book a stay for the first time!
Our first property to become a part of the Mountain Whispers Collection in 2006 was Varenna and the latest in 2017, Chatelaine. Have you tried them yet? Come and celebrate your special times with us during our 17th anniversary month! Because if you haven’t visited in winter, believe us when we say there is no better time of the year to experience all that the Blue Mountains and Mountain Whispers has to offer.
We wanted to take the opportunity to recap on the restoration journey…
Here are a few before and after photos of the restoration of each historic property. Scroll down to see the stunning transformations that took place:
