Wow, what a beautiful place this was. We stayed in the Stringybark Cabin and it was beautiful. The kitchen is very well equipped, all you could need is waiting for you. The bedrooms are a great size with good storage. The bathroom is big and plenty of hooks to hang your things on. The most comfortable sofa's to unwind after...

These cottages are really special. Don't even think about going in a hotel / motel or anywhere else. We stayed in Snowgum. Totally private. Glorious cosy place. The staff were excellent, friendly & thoughtful. On a wet day the fire was already lit when we got home. How kind is that ! You have a balcony & all manner of...

We spent four nights in the lovely Telopea cabin which was really a splurge for us. We knew we'd likely only get to Cradle Mountain once and this very private and beautifully equipped cabin was worth every dollar. Wildlife out the spacious and plentiful windows that looked out to the woods and an incredible spa tub that was a real...

Loved the two nights we had here. Weather was quite poor so we spent a bit of time inside and found the cabin fine for a family of four. Located opposite national parks office and cafe, the cottages are very private. Our first night was extraordinarily windy with gusts to 80km/hr. We had not secured the door properly and I...

Our two night stay wasn't long enough at this private little cabin. The log fire was burning when we arrived, making us immediately comfortable on a rainy day. It was a short walk to the shuttle buses at the visitor centre, and an easy base for all the Cradle Mountain walks. The dvds and kids' toys were appreciated, and we...
