Jenolan Caves House

Caves House is an icon of Blue Mountains accommodation. In 1897, NSW Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, designed and built the grand Jenolan Caves House, only a minute's stroll from the Grand Arch, as a wilderness retreat for wealthy travellers. No expense was spared. He used the alpine, picturesque 'Federation, Arts and Crafts' style.

Hotel accommodation in the Blue Mountains for 115 years, Caves House is on the NSW State Heritage Register. It has grown to incorporate romantic, historic guestrooms, modern rooms, backpacker lodge and bush cottages. Caves House retains all of its beauty and elegance, and offers warm country hospitality. Caves House has hosted visitors from all walks of life, from honeymooners, families, backpackers, international tourists, celebrities and even royalty!

We offer accommodation for all needs and budgets:

  • iconic Jenolan Caves House, with charming decor, reflecting the late Victorian era
  • motel-style Mountain Lodge, with modern decor, very popular with families
  • the Gate House (backpacker lodge), for budget-minded travellers
