Sleeping up to 12 adults, this large pole-house is a 4 bedroom and 2 bathroom executive residence in Sawmill Settlement. 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 fire-pit and garden deck, plus there are chickens providing you with fresh eggs daily.
This non-smoking 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 and the high country has to offer. Bring the kids, they will love it!
The Lodge is home to tame king parrots, kookaburras and crimson rosellas, and if you are an early riser you may see grey kangaroos and deer browsing in the surrounding 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.
During winter Mount Buller lifts and Mount Stirling trails are only 20 mins away, providing magnificent ski runs and cross country trails for all levels. Summer provides more adventure with fishing, hiking, wineries, pubs, 4WDing, mountain biking, road cycling and horse trail and trail bike riding at our door step. Finish off with a dip in the Delatite River only 5 mins walk away.

Top Notch Holiday Stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights stay at MannaGum. Very well equipped, extremely spacious, very clean, and the open fire was awesome. The heating in the bedrooms was appreciated as it was pretty cold. And the wildlife was amazing. Would love to go back. Thanks Nicky
And its still snowing here Debbie!
2nd Awesome Weekend
This was our second big weekend at Mann Gum, up mountain biking on Buller with about 8 blokes, very easily and comfortably accommodated in the very generous house. This trip was especially to try out the new Epic Trail, which was rated among us as one of the great trails - most of us have ridden overseas, raced for years, write for and are editors of bike mags… Awesome. The house is right at the end of the trail too, with a river for a cool-down. The house is very clean and well kept. The kitchen is better stocked than any rental I’ve seen. The living space is great to relax in and the deck the perfect spot for a beer. Even better, the owner is lovely and very bike-friendly. We had bike dramas on our last day, and the owner was very helpful in accommodating our shambles. Highly recommended and will re-visit.
You cant help getting umpteen punctures in the wet weather!! Glad the Epic Trail lived up to your expectations. Looking forward to your next visit.
We only stayed one night but felt at home soon after we arrived. The house was very comfortably furnished, the kitchen well stocked and there was a wide range of books and DVDs provided on the shelves. The location of the house was very convenient to the places we wanted to go - Craig's Hut and Mt. Buller.
Come again Kelli!
A beautiful home away from home
We were delighted with all aspects of our stay at MannaGum. Clean and spacious, with so much room. The beds were very comfortable and there were heaters throughout the house. We had all the wood we wanted for the wood stove and the kitchen was excellently equipped. Something which we appreciated too (which isn't expected) was a great range of classic and new release DVDs, books, board games and kid's toys. I want to come back without our kids! Nicky manages the place with great care and is very friendly, she was only a call away if we needed anything.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We do try hard to look after the kids as well as the adults. Its's one of the reasons why we keep the chooks!
Beautiful location, had everything you need
