For many years we traveled between Sydney and the Snowy, hubby Greg loves to ski and so does our daughter. We decided we should try a tree change and bought the White House & lived here and ran our house as a guest house until a business opportunity came up in Sydney and we relocated back to Sydney for work. Our son moved in ran the guest house for us and did a great job until the bright lights of Canberra enticed him away to another business adventure. Finally have many years we have now returned to the White House and are enjoying all the wonderful things on offer in this region....Greg is certainly looking forward to hitting the slopes in winter, as for me I am loving the rural scene and looking forward to trying to cross country ski fun this year.
Andrea purchased this House in 2004
Why Andrea chose Crackenback
We jumped at the chance to buy the White House, it is unique in that is 5 acres of rural enjoyment but we are close to the township of Jindabyne and the ski fields for access is great for winter and properties don't come up very often in this location so we thought we should to do this while we with living in Sydney we still came back to enjoy and think it is one of the best decisions we made.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that we are on 5 rural acres with breathtaking views and sometimes even snow covered. The house is warm with the underfloor heating so it is delight in winter to just enjoy.

A wonderful home to enjoy a snowy mountains escape.
The White House was the perfect base for our ski holiday, conveniently located between Jindabyne and the ski tube. The house is extremely well equipped to enjoy delicious meals, cosy fireside reading or fun board games and incredibly charming as well as comfortable for a crowd. A very special property in every respect!
Thank you Ann for taking the time to provide your review....it is a lovely house and as you say a great spot to access the snow fields and all the snow fun on offer.
We look forward to seeing you again !
Amazing house for an amazing snow getaway!!
The house was even more beautiful than in the photos... the rooms were lovely set and the concrete heated floor was just perfect! Location was also great! Definitely recommend to stay at this property! We left with a feeling to come back very soon...!
Snow coverd paradise!
Andreas whitehouse is beautiful, warm and relaxing. Felt like a weekend of luxury staying a this wonderful house. All bedrooms had ensuits and the under floor heating and fire place were amazing. Even a heated cupboard to keep the shoes dry after walking around in the snow.
The house was was covered in snow when we arrived and was just magical! Close enough for some of our group to go skiing each day and be warm and cosy at night. Equiped with all you need we were able to cook all meals at the house including a roast dinner! would highly recommend for a weekend away with family or friends. Thank you to the host for a lovely weekend away!
I agree Andrea's White House is magical all covered in snow...thanks Jen for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay at our house...we hope to see you again
A great dining option is just down the road on the Alpine Way. The food is highly recommended....Crackenback Farm Restaurant.
Wild Brumby Schnapps Distillery is close by on the Alpine Way and is great…I thoroughly recommend this but it is only open for brunch and lunch ....Wild Brumby.
Horse Riding – just across the Alpine Way…you will see this on your way to our house....Thredbo Valley Horse rides
Walks and hikes – check out Kosciuszko National Parks web which has a lot of detail on walks – try the Thredbo Valley Track which is suitable for walking and bike riding and starts at Lake Crackenback resort which is about a 5-min drive from us....Thredbo Valley Bike & Walking Trail
This is about a 20-min drive from us just follow along the Alpine Way and is a great place to go summer or winter …there is an in-door pool, bike rides, bob sled and you can ride a chair lift up to the beginning of the walk to Mt. Kosciusko
Mt. Kosciuszko - walk to the top of Australia
This is a great walk and you can do this either from Thredbo Village or drive to Charlottes Pass through Perisher and commence the walk there.
