Spacious, functional, affordable winter escape

  • 5 of 5

Old style house, very spacious room with huge kitchen. Perfect for a very big family or friends to gather together. Only downside is the water pressure is not ideal. But overall we all love it. Will come back next year.

We had a lovely time staying at this lodge.

This home was very spacious which had quite a lot of room which comfortably fit 10 guests. Maggie was great to communicate with and very reachable via phone. Most rooms were fitted with electric blankets to keep us warm.

There were quite a lot of amenities (towels, shampoo, conditioner soap) however we found that it was lacking in paper towels and chux for clean up after we cooked and we eventually ran out of toilet paper in the main shared toilet. It did take a little while for the home to warm up and there were ants. Lastly there was no reception available and no WIFI to make up the lack of reception.

Overall it we had a great time and it wasn't a long drive away from the slopes which was great as we didn't have to wake up super earlier to get up the mountain.

Thank you for allowing our family to enjoy this very cosy and inviting home. We had a fabulous time staying at the Highlander Lodge. The view is beautiful. Its a very spacious but cosy place that makes feels right at home. We would have loved an couple extra heaters in the 2 back rooms as they got very cold during the night. The electric blankets worked magic when you jumped into bed however cooled down very quickly. We will hopefully be back again as we thoroughly staying here.

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.
