Both rooms had electric heaters in them however we had to turn ours off through the night as we were so warm. There is a...

Location of the property is ideal as it is close to the Information Centre and the shuttles. We stayed in the Ringtail cottage and it was perfect. It was fully equipped and well stocked. The heater was already on when we checked in (perfect welcome as we came during heavy snowing). The staff was friendly and helpful, checking in &...

Quite often you see lovely photos of a gorgeous log cabin in the mountains and end up being disappointed when you arrive. This was quite the opposite, it was even more beautiful than we had hoped for :) We stayed in Snowgum which looked like a fairytale cabin in the snow. We arrived late in the afternoon after a long...

We were lucky enough to get a super clear day on one of the days we were there, waking up to the view from our bed of Cradle Mountain was pretty special. The foggier night was also great as our cottage was kitted out with a beautiful carpet in front of a roaring fireplace. The staff were all incredibly friendly...

There is not much choices of accommodation in Cradle Mountain, it's a good choice to stay in a cottage that you could really back to the nature, surrounded by animals. Very lovely Pademelon. Love it Love it. The houseware is just fine. Bathroom, clean, big, just a bit running old. But not bothering us. Free Wifi - but seems have...

We found this accommodation very comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful and log fire in room great. Only issue was that for a short person the double bed was a bit high off ground. Easy drive to see Tasmanian devils feeding . The cost of access to visit the lake by national parks a bit dear especially if handicapped and...

We have stayed at Cradle Mountain Highlanders many times and always come back! We booked the Buttongrass, which may appear small from the outside but is big on the inside. Such a lovely place to stay - whenever we didn't go bushwalking, we were always relaxing in front of the woodfire and watching TV. Lovely and relaxing stay in a...

Stayed at Quoll Cottage for 2 nights and was just the most amazing experience! Gorgeous wee cabin in an enchanted moss covered wood. Arrived home after doing a 6km walk around Dove Lake on a rainy cold day, to find our fire lit for us...pademelons gambolling around the front of the cottage! Magical!
