Stayed here for 3 nights so we didn't have to rush our Cradle Mountain visit like last time. The cabins are fantastic. Secluded and private yet so close to the mountains and all the park has to offer. First day was cold and rainy so after drive up to Dove Lake for a quick look, a stop at the Lodge...

I stayed here for 2 nights over Easter and loved every minute. With the wood burning stove going, it was hard to leave the cabin as it was so cosy and had such great views of Cradle Mountain. Pademelons jumping on the balcony (and roof) at night was a shock at first but it was fun watching them. My cabin...

These lovely cottages are cozy, warm, and convenient. Walking distance from visitors center where shuttles take you anywhere in the park. Warmed by wood fire stove (and heater), the rustic but elegant cabins made the chilly, wet day seem inviting, especially when watching the pademelons out the window. Laundry available, staff very friendly. make sure to bring own food as...

The individually crafted cabins and cottages spaced out over a generous piece of land reveal the owner/architect's pride in this project. The woody and homely feel inside give a sense of warmth and coziness, and makes living away from home easier. Highly recommended!

This was a cold place with snow and frost around. We were so warm in our very private log cabin with its own verandah which was suspended over the bush. Everything you needed and a close walk through the bush to the Visitor Centre where access to Dove Lake and the walks originates.Big picture windows made you feel as if...

An excellent location, despite the snow a couple weeks ago. A 7 minute walk to the visitor center, from where you can take the shuttle into the park. Alternatively, you're close enough to the park to arrive early and find a parking spot at the Lake. You CAN walk to the Lodge and Interpretive Center in maybe 15+ minutes, but...

Chalets are secluded and private compared to others in this area (which seem to be crammed on top of one another!) so ideal if you enjoy peace, quiet and privacy. Chalets are of an extremely high quality and well fitted out being very modern. Owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Local shops are very limited and expensive so bring...

Love love loved this place, we didn't want to leave to explore the area, just sit by the fire and drink red wine. So secluded but close to everything you want in cradle. Just across the road from the information center and close to the entrance to the park for all the walks.

Our party stayed in two cabins, Telopea and Mountain View Spa for 3 nights. The latter, being $30 a night more expensive, is the larger and better cabin and I would recommend it if you had the choice, but both were great. Telopea is a bit squeezy around the bedpost and caution is needed not to fall onto the large...

Great after hour check in service! Arrived late, envelop with friendly welcome waiting for us and the fireplace in our cabin burning... sleeping in middle of nature in a wooden cabin with a wooden fire burning all night, woke up to some peddemelons sitting outside... great experience!
