Moonbah Lake Hut & Moonbah River Hut Moonbah Lake Hut is a separate listing on STAYZ - STAYZ property I.D. 15830

Take a breath of fresh air and step back in time. These unique stone/slab huts, located in the picturesque Moonbah Valley region of the New South Wales Snowy Mountains 15 minutes drive from the ski resort town of Jindabyne, enjoy private frontage to the Blue Ribbon declared Moonbah River - the regions most pristine trout stream - complete with resident platypus. The Lake Hut also fronts a small private lake containing brown, brook and rainbow trout.

"Moonbah Hut looks great on the website, almost too good to be true. But guess what? It is true No enhanced photos. Its not so much a hut but an experience.The peace and quiet, the isolation,the fauna, the fresh air, the space to relax and escape whatever you're trying to escape. Inspirational stuff indeed. Oh and a great shower as well. Wish the place was ours but as that isn't going to happen we'll have to settle with going back again at the first opportunity. A truly wonderful part of the country. Don't hesitate, just GO Dale & Belinda

Explore the bordering Kosciuszko National Park 150 m from the Lake Hut & 0m from the River Hut.

Savor the mountain air and clear night skies with a gazillion stars - an astronomer's paradise. Go for a walk and see brumbies, wild deer, wombats, 60 plus species of birdlife.....take a picture.....paint a picture.....the scenery is breathtaking:

"Couldn't of had a more enjoyable time if we tried. Wildlife galore - the wombat down by the river was so cute - looked just like the RSPCA ad, but without the bandage The kangas, emu and brumby harem were great. At night, who needs TV? The frogs lulled us to sleep and the cockatoos visited in the morning. Thanks Brett, we had a fantastic time & look forward to visiting again".Darren & Claire, Canberra.

If you're feeling particularly invigorated, go mountain bike riding, Norco 24 speed suspension bikes are available for hire, or maybe take a dip in the cool, crystal clear waters of the Moonbah River.

If all this sounds a little too tiring, just sit in the rocking chair on the verandah and read a book.

The huts are very cosy even in -15c and the Lake Hut sleeps a maximum 4 people, ideally 2 adults and 2 young children & the River Hut a maximum 5 persons. There are 'inside' bathrooms, no outhouses here.

Local telephone is connected, however you can make long distance calls reverse charges, if required.

The bedding is high quality and all beds have electric blankets.

The fishing is outstanding. Expert guiding, tuition and or fly tying, can be arranged. Rods and all gear required, are available for hire.

Both of the hut's feature huge, stone open fireplaces and with snow on either Christmas or Boxing Day, on 6 of the past 9 years, the fireplaces can be enjoyed on most nights of the year. There is also a wood stove and a twin electric hotplate for cooking and a small fridge/freezer to store your catch in. All cutlery, crockery, cookware, etc is supplied.

There are few modern appliances, as the huts are very traditional - No television reception or playstations

Moonbah Huts are the ideal and unique summer, or winter, getaways. Unfortunately Moonbah Huts are not suitable for pets.

Prices for the Lake Hut range from $275-$395 per night & the River Hut from $375-$595 per night, depending on time of year, number of guests and duration of stay.

Minimum 2 night stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and a perfect getaway Despite a long drive and arriving tired we received a friendly greeting from Brett. We could not have asked for a better bolt hole and wished that we had stayed longer. The hut is comfortable, cosy and quirky, and the like g fire was a bonus. We just loved it - even the 7km drive off road in our hire car!! I would advise 4x4, especially when wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly Hut! Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly and welcoming Brett Smith the creator of this paradise! Brett was a joy to chat with and he was always too willing to lend a hand or meet our requests, including some handy fly fishing tips! The Hut is just glorious to stay in! With the cosy open fire crackling, toasty warm floor under foot and luxurious appointments you truly do escape wherever it is you have come from. The little surprises left for our enjoyment left us feeling very Spoilt and made for a very enjoyable stay! We will deffinately be back for another wonderful experience, wishing for some snow next time!
