Really cozy cabin with kitchen and fireplace would defiantly stay again!
Very beautiful amd well equiped wooden-crafted cottage
Very cozy cottage with a fire place and modern day heating system. The kitchen is small but with basic facilities and we are able to cook our dinner. Took awhile longer to heat up though with the cold. =D
Dear Sophie Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we are pleased to hear you found yourself at home in our Studio cabin with wood fire. Warm regards, Lisa
Nice cottage with cute little visitors”
We arrived at the resort passed 5pm and it was already dark and cold. However, the reception guy was really helpful and direct us to our cottages (there's no lightings outside), gave us a quick guide on how to operate the fire place and stove so that we could settle down and cook our own dinner. We got a surprised visit by wallabies in the morning, a mother and its baby, standing just outside our cottage. Their not camera shy at all.. =) and so we feed them some bread before checking out and continue with our journey.
Dear Sophie Thank you for leaving a review of your stay in the Woodsmoke cabin. We are in the bush up here, so no streetlights, but it is great to hear we could help you to find your cabin okay and that you enjoyed the facilities and the wood fire. The wallabies are gorgeous, and they are called Tasmanian Pademelons, who are regulars around the cabins grazing on the grass and bush. The next time you stay, and future travellers, please ensure you do not feed the animals bread. It causes them to get a disease as they are not made to eat human processed foods. Its always best to "Keep Wildlife Wild" when visiting wild places and watch them from a distance, so they are there for your next visit. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday Warm regards Lisa
Really lovely cabins, warm log fire and a very comfortable bed. Set in beautiful bushland and an easy walking distance to the national park visitor centre! Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, highly recommend Cradle Mountain Highlanders to anyone looking for a cosy haven to base from for exploring the area.
Dear Amanda Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed it Warm regards Lisa
Nice and sweet stay”
We regretted that we just booked one night here. The pension was big and well equipped with cooking utensils. It was warm and we could see wildlife outside of our pension. We cooked and had a nice dinner here and had a good rest.
Fantastic cottage with a real bush cabin feel, so close to cradle mountain visitor center. Wildliffe came up to our door, great heating, very private. Unfortunately the wifi and tv reception did not happen due to remoteness and unless you have Telstra no mobile reception either. Great for a couple of days stay. Sraff allowed me to use their phone to call home .
Cottage Facilities ”
Cottage is good and all facilities are in good working condition except for WiFi and TY connectivity which is not so good. Near to Visitor Center. Good experience to live in the cottage for me. Overall above satisfactory level.
Heavenly stay ”
We were greeted by dusting of snow and by padmelons who visited our property Buttongrass. Right from the start, the staff were so helpful and guided us properly. The wood fire was already burning. Brad accomodated my check in request and guided me what to bring in advance. The location is perfect storybook type. Each cottage is secluded giving privacy. Our cottage was super clean, bed was amazing and bathroom was big as well. But above all we got a chance to enjoy nature, spend quality time away from internet and normal world. A chance to cook, watch dvd's- yes!. It gave us actual break from our normal routine. The walking track from highlanders to visitor centre is awesome. National park is just 2 minutes drive from highlanders. Lot of great walks there too. We were glad to choose highlanders for our stay. Keep up the great work guys. Will see you next time.
Cozy and comfortable cabin
great place to stay. good condition of the kitchen in the cabin.
Fabulous cozy accommodation at Cradle Mountain”
The Highlanders has individual cottages that stand alone in the bush at Cradle Mountain. They have all the facilities that are needed and can be heated to stave off the cold night air. Surprisingly homely and comfortable.
Fully equip kitchen, also provided cling wrap and aluminium foil! Reception close at 6pm and we overlooked and reached a little later. Our keys were kept in a envelope outside the reception door. Note: quoll cottage will need a min of walking from where u can park.
Two nights in bushtail. Timber cabin with gas operated fireplace in the woods, really enjoyed the experience of living in the nature. of course the sacrifice was the walk from the car with the luggage through the "wood". Actually just a short walk. We checked in late and the staff prepare touch light for us hang on the reception entrance.
Nice Cosy Cabin”
Quoll was a cosy cabin where you can get away from all the other visitors at Mount Cradle. The cabin is will stocked with gas oven and stove, cutlery and fridge. Although I did not see any wildlife during my 3 day stay at the cabin. I found the peace and quiet very enjoyable.
If you like mountains it is perfect”
Cradle mountain is an amazing location and this cabin in the wood was the perfect match for the location. Easy to find, clean and really close to park entrance. You could easily cook, not only breakfast. Even a fireplace in the cabin to warm the place and set the mood.
Superb! Loved it!”
We checked into Woodsmoke cabin and was surprised at how cozy and well equipped it was. The heater was a fireplace type and it was a great experience feeding the heater with wood. There was a microwave too and we were able to cook nice dinners with it. Wildlife was at your doorstep and it was near where we wanted to go. It was a great and complete getaway. Highly recommended
Best stay of our vacation!”
The lodge is not huge, given we were family of 4+infant. However, the layout and space utilization is just great! Right across the visitor centre, location is good. Heater and fireplace provided which is so important in the cold cold Cradle Mountain.
Love the surroundings”
Very much enjoyed it. Hotel is just a few minutes walking distance to the visitor info centre and cafe. We took several walks around there and drove to Dove Lake after 1800 when most of the visitors have left. We took some very beautiful pictures and the weather in early October is cool with a lot of sunshine. We bought a canned soup and some lamb chops at Launceston and we cooked ourself a perfect dinner with the fire next to us. A new experience for my husband and I.
Stayed at Pandani cottage for 2 nights. The cottage was cozy, relatively comfortable and the gas heater worked well to keep us warm. We can actually see wildlife right outside our doorstep. Pandani is a 2 storey cottage so the only downside is the wooden floorboards creaks rather loudly whenever someone walks, affecting the sleep of my son, who is a light sleeper.
