Sleeping up to 12 adults, this large pole-house is a 4 bedroom and 2 bathroom executive residence in Sawmill Settlement. During the ski season Queens Birthday in June to approximately beginning of September the Lodge operates as a whole house rental for your exclusive use. Up to 12 people are covered by the standard tariff. For the remainder of the year October to June it operates as a B&B. The owners live separately on site during this period and provide you with breakfast. The B&B tariff is per couple with additional guests charged individually.
Only two minutes from the Mt Buller/Stirling gate, this mountain hideaway is beautifully appointed with fine furnishings, original artworks, and quality linen. Built over 3 levels it has been designed to cater for several families in the one home. Under soaring cathedral ceilings, the crackling wood-fire is the heart of the open plan cooking/dining/living space. The master bedroom is separate from other bedrooms and has its own bathroom and deck area. Three other bedrooms on the second/third levels are serviced by a separate toilet, bathroom and second lounge, making it a great place for the kids to hang out. The backyard is built for entertaining with a cosy firepit and garden deck, plus there are chickens providing you with fresh eggs daily, fruit trees, and extensive landscaping.
This nonsmoking property is ideal for couples looking for a secluded romantic setting, for several families who enjoy quality and space, or for groups who wish to share all that this property has to offer. Bring the kids, they will love it
The Lodge is home to king parrots, kookaburras and crimson rosellas, and if you are an early riser you may see grey kangaroos and deer browsing in the forest.
Our kitchen has everything from coffee plungers to a slow cooker, bread maker and food processor. A range of basic pantry goods is also provided.
