Come and stay at Marouka Lodge!
Marouka Lodge is located near Jack Frost/Arco with direct access from the main road. In winter, you don't need over-snow transport to get your gear in and out! The free village bus stop is very close by too.
Our prominent position provides a grand outlook up Swindlers Valley to Mt Loch, with Mt Feathertop visible in the background.
The lodge has 8 bedrooms. Room occupancy ranges from 2 to 5. The tariff varies by period, day of week and room. The quoted rates are for double occupancy of a premium room with en-suite and two beds: a double and a single bunk above. Please enquire about lower rates for single bed bookings in standard rooms.
Weekend bookings must include both Friday and Saturday nights. Children under 3 years of age may stay free of charge.
The lodge is self-serve. Bring your own food to cook. A fully outfitted kitchen can be used by several groups at once. There is a large glass-front refrigerator and cupboard space for your supplies. Meal-time is the best time to meet other guests.
The lodge is well-maintained and has been steadily upgraded from its initial establishment in the early 1970s. It exudes a warm and welcoming charm.
An on-site lodge manager or member can assist you when necessary. The lodge does not contract a laundry service, so all guests are expected to bring their own sheets (top-sheet or doona cover), pillowcases and bathroom towels.
Top reasons to stay:
1. Easy access from the main road
2. Family-friendly and comfortable
3. Informal and inexpensive
Our booking system for the snow season opens to the public on 01 April. Enquiries before then are wait-listed, except for large group bookings which may be accepted for off-peak periods.
Marouka Lodge is a member-run club of outdoor enthusiasts. If you intend to visit Mt Hotham often, come experience our friendly lodge and enquire about membership. Members pay less and get first dibs on rooms for the snow season until 01 April.
Full refund is given if cancellation is at least 28 days prior to check-in date. 50% refund is offered for cancellations between 7 and 28 days before check-in date. There is no refund if cancellation within 7 days of check-in date. Contact the Booking Officer if you wish to change your dates.
Marouka Lodge offers a "no-snow" guarantee: if all resort lifts are shut for the day, then you will only have to pay summer rates, even if you are already at the lodge.
Club members generally book the lodge out completely for the August peak snow season period. Therefore, you are most likely to find accommodation at Marouka Lodge during the early season period (June - July) and in spring (September).
