Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property The house was great. It easily catered for 3 families comfortably and the price split between the three families made it even cheaper and more accessible for everyone to come and enjoy. Everything in the house was working and clean. The fact that the wood for the fireplace was already chopped and stored was a bonus. A lot of places don't do that for you. The ease of the key pick up and drop off was super easy. Will definately use this house again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property We had a fantastic stay at Buddong Lodge. The house was very spacious - we had 6 adults and 6 children and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was huge, bathrooms really modern and a very comfortable and big lounge and cosy fireplace. We would definitely book the house again for next years trip to the snow.
