Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Sentinel, it is a lovely location, very peaceful.

The fire provided much needed warmth as we couldn't get the floor heating to work. Nicely appointed place. Comfortable beds etc. Geoff the manager/owner was easy to communicate with. Wifi would be handy, as phone reception is a challenge if you're not with Telstra.

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a lovely stay at this fantastic property. It had everything we needed to self cater for our stay. We made good use of the resort facilities ie pool, archery, trampolines and of course the day spa! It has the best of both worlds: large, private accomodation with the added bonus of the resort facilities. It was just a short drive to Thredbo where we climbed Mt Kosciusko.

We will definitely be back again!

Great alpine property

Lovely property that has good access to nearby snow field, Thredbo. Central fire place is excellent. Overall property is really well presented. Our family of six had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful property in serene location! Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed at The Sentinal for a mid week break in April. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious and comfortable chalet. The fire place was definitely a highlight, it warmed the place up very quickly and enough wood/firelighters were provided for our entire stay. The full kitchen was great as there are not many food options close by, and we had everything we needed provided to cook up a hearty meal at the end of the day! The bed was warm and comfortable, and each of the bedrooms were huge. Also... three bathrooms! Need I say more?!

A few things to note about our stay, none of which affect the quality of the property:

- The unit is separate from the Lake Crackenback Resort (managed privately)... because of this, we experienced some very rude resort staff when trying to access the advertised "free" activities and were told we needed to pay to participate.

- bring some slippers to wear, the tiles get cool on your feet

- I highly recommend checking out some of the bush walks close by, very beautiful.

I hope you all have a stay as good as ours was. I can't wait to come back!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, beautiful layout, quality features throughout the house. Very comfortable for a short or long term stay. An outdoor sitting area would add to the overall experience in the warmer months. That said, we will be back!
