Great location and very spacious property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Highlander. The lodge had a seventies ski chalet feel to it, and had everything we needed. It was very cold when we arrived and took a while to warm up, but the log burner and electric heaters were very effective. Central heating would be better, but the electric blankets were a nice touch. The house is simple but very spacious and well equipped, great for groups. Also very close to the base of the mountain - about 6 minutes drive to the park entry booths and Merimbah Store at the base.

Good Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Good location. 3 bathrooms is a bonus. Fire place is really nice and warm in the living area. The only thing let us down is the bad phone reception, but I guess you can't do anything about it. :) And a nice, no iPad, no phone, non interrupted weekend is what we looking for, isn't it?

Great stay for the snow

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend here - perfect for a group of 8-10 people for a weekend. The open living area and kitchen were perfect for hanging out and cooking meals, and with the fireplace and heaters the house was very warm. The dry room and ski locker were super helpful, and the location was very convenient for getting to Mt Buller, and easy to find. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Excellent property!

Great spacious clean house, well worth the stay! Lots of kitchen utensils to cook own dinner. However there is little phone reception in the house, so bring movies or games to spend time with.
