Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Stay Absolutely amazing scenery. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and so relaxing. Very spacious and clean home. We had kookaburra's and possums join us on the balcony, it was gorgeous. The location was ideal and only minutes away from the Mt Buller entrance. Ashleigh was great to deal with from start to finish. Definitely would stay and recommend this place to any one. *****

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At the very base of the mountain Awesome place, very tidy and clean. Plenty of fire wood for the canara which topped off the atmosphere and kept us all warm. Kids loved the play room up stairs. Kid loved hand feeding the rosellas from the back porch and also spotted a wombat having a feed at the bottom of the porch. Also has a dry room for all you ski gear.
