We stayed in the bed sitter room over the long weekend. Clean and tidy studio with a full kitchen. Close to ski resorts and Jindabyne. Nothing fancy would suit a small family. Happy with the price we paid. Ask the owners where to hire your ski gear to get a discount at the shop!!

We stayed at The Cottage with 13 friends and had the most amazing snow getaway. Chris is fabulous to deal with and the accomodation is incredible, with everything you could possibly need at your finger tips. We can't wait to come back next year. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a memorable trip away.

Truly amazing weekend away, super friendly hosts with spacious, well designed living areas. A real rustic charm blending the old with the new. All bathrooms exquisite, plenty of hot water, fluffy white towels and large mirrors. Thanks master chef Warren for all those incredible meals. Can't wait to do it all again!
