This accommodation is superb! Situated just off the Alpine Way between Jindabyne and Thredbo, the 18 chalets are surrounded by lovely snow gums and natural grassed areas, with delightful views across typical highland country with grazing cattle. There are many birds, kangaroos wander and graze just outside the chalets and we also saw a fox.
The accommodation itself is private, very well designed, very comfortable, tasteful, well appointed and fully equipped, with many double glazed glass areas seemingly bringing the expansive views right inside. There is a verandah with outdoor furniture and a barbeque, which we were able to use on a balmy evening. The whole effect is completely compatible with the environment and there are also eco features such as an eco (ethanol) fire, roof collected tank water and worm farms which deal with waste. For winter there is also underfloor heating.
With friendly and helpful staff, this is a great destination for a quiet weekend close to nature but also to the restaurants and facilities of the nearby towns or a great base for skiing, with easy access to Thredbo and the Ski Tube.
What amazing value for money. The habitats are beautifully designed and well furnished. Powerful hot shower, such comfortable beds, windows everywhere often looking out over kangaroos. So peaceful yet walking distance to the Wildbrumby Distillery and awesome Crackenback Farm Restaurant. A short drive to the resort at Lake Crackenback with all its activities and mountain bike trails. Our hosts were exceptional as well. We couldn’t fault it and will certainly be back

“Outstanding natural beauty, perfect for photography” My wife and I stayed here again at the start of summer, after having also stayed in late Autumn earlier this year. Again, the cottage was perfect, such a beautiful and private place in an outstanding part of the world. As a keen photographer, anywhere I can stay and get excellent photographs at the same time, is a really outstanding place. We had numerous wildlife experiences also, with a large Blue-tongue Lizard living in the log outside the back door, numerous Kangaroos and even a Deer.
