Though known amongst many crowds for our luxuriously romantic weekend getaways, we do often see new faces and groups utilising our private and conveniently located properties for a multitude of exciting reasons.
If you find yourself wondering how you could immerse yourself in the stunning natural surrounds of the mountains without feeling overly self-indulgent, perhaps thinking outside of the box could see you booking a stay with us in the not-too-distant future!
And so, you ask, what else can Mountain Whispers be used for?
Bringing family together during COVID
Boasting a range of lavish private cottages to choose from, why not gather your family in one central location and really enjoy some quality time together? Our properties are each configured to accommodate several couples and are situated only a short drive from one another to ensure that even the largest family has a comfy place to rest their head.
Selecting a property from the MW Collection for your next yoga retreat ensures that you’ll feel a million miles away from the rest of the world. Find yourself with adequate silence to really slow down and drink in the sights, smells and sounds that mother nature so plentifully offers. Many of our yogi guests have commented on their ability to spend quality time focusing on their own self-care and mindfulness, while enjoying evening meals together cooking and reconnecting in the fully-equipped kitchen.
Complaining to yourself that you haven’t been able to catch up with your nearest and dearest lately? What are you waiting for? Autumn turns on a sensational backdrop for a girls’ weekend away – enjoy a few wines and a cheese board around the roaring fire and finally take a breath and finish that long-anticipate conversation with your besties. Fancy organising a fun-filled itinerary? We’ve got you covered.
Mother’s group annual trips
We often host annual Mother’s group getaways here at Mountain Whispers, where mums and mums-to-be reconnect, swap stories and catch up on the year that has been. If you are lucky enough to have stayed in touch with your mother’s group, why not start an annual tradition that sees your celebrating all you have achieved in another lap around the sun? We’ve got some great ideas for how to make the most out of your weekend here.
Groups of artists inspired by gardens
Our famous gardens provide inspiration to many locals and visitors, who happily lug their easels, paints and cameras from Sydney and beyond. With stunning floral shows year-round, and unrivalled birdlife to get your creative juices flowing, treat yourself to a day or two in one of properties and dedicate time to finally dusting off your beloved paintbrushes. We will happily accommodate groups of all sizes, and can offer our expert insights into favourite artist hotspots in and around the Blue Mountains
Do you knit, crochet, work with paper, leather, ceramics or needlework? With crafting hobbies on the rise since the onset of COVID, it isn’t any wonder that we are seeing more and more local community groups escaping the rat-race and heading to the mountains to dedicate solid time to what make them feel happy. If you find you’re unable to put aside time for your passion projects throughout the work week, why not gather your group and then gather around to sip chamomile tea in the fresh afternoon sun and get your craft on? We’ve even compiled a handy list of incredible art galleries in the surrounding areas that are sure to inspire and motivate every craftsman.
Cycling clubs and walking/running groups
It is no secret that the Blue Mountains is home to some of the most challenging, rewarding and breath-taking trails and bush paths. With options to suit every keen athlete, from the novice right through to the diehard, our gorgeous landscape and mountainous terrain will leave you feeling revitalised and ready for more. Our properties are all conveniently located to a plethora of tracks and trails; simply round up your posse, pack up the car and check our list of the best biking adventures and walking tracks that lie ahead.
Sometimes booking a weekend away for ourselves or our partners can seem just a little too indulgent or unnecessary. Booking accommodation for your group of friends to reconnect, reconvene or revisit a lost art or passion, can not only offset the cost of your break, but also help to set our guilt aside. If you’ve been missing your friends or have missed out on your regular catch ups over the last year, perhaps it’s time to do something about it. Simply let me know what kind of group or the occasion you have in mind, and I will be sure that we reserve the most convenient, best suited property and location for your purposes.
