Moosehead Lodge is so unique. Such great atmosphere in the solar and gas run lodge. The wood fire is brilliant and warmed up the place quickly. A great time with the girls sleeping in, making dinners and drinking wine. Some relaxing hikes in the bush, hand feeding the King Parrots, a short drive up to Mt Bawbaw and a chilled...

We loved our visit to Mount Baw Baw & the amazing setting of the Moosehead Lodge in Tanjil Bren. Such a unique accomodation experience & quaint little village. Kids loved feeding the parrots & seeing Lyrebirds in the wild. This is our 2nd visit & we'll be back to enjoy another cosy ski weekend again. Thanks to Jenny for her...

Firstly, Jenny is truly a lovely host and looked after us very well - thank you again. We stayed at Moosehead Lodge and like the fact its only a short drive to Mt Baw Baw. It makes life so much easier when travelling with kids who are exhausted from playing all day in the snow. Personally, we found the lodge...

Perfect for that family or romantic getaway. It has all you need and is absolutely charming and unique! Very easy access to the snow and a very private retreat. We love it and hope to go back each year for many years to come. Thanks Jenny!

My husband and I were looking for a cosy break to enjoy and relax in the snow when we found Moosehead lodge. The lodge was super easy to find (right on the Mt Baw Baw tourist road) and upon arrival Jenny (the owner) had lit the fireplace and there was a delicious bottle of red waiting for us. This lodge...

We stayed at Moosehead lodge for 2 nights and it was possibly one of the nicest and relaxing places we have ever stayed. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! The décor is fabulous with a homely feel and so relaxing! We particularly loved the log fire which was lovely to come home and...

My family and I have been visiting Tanjil Bren and Moosehead Lodge for the past few years. It's a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life, a little oasis of calm amongst the towering eucalypts and tree ferns. The lodge itself is full of character, decked out in moose/bear hunting and wood-chopping paraphernalia 'Wild Bill Hicock' style!...

Thanks Jenny for a great stay in your clean and atmospheric lodge. We took the family, the dogs and the bikes and all enjoyed the fresh air and unplugged experience. Jenny's lodge also had inside safe storage for the bikes.
