Great Country Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Great peaceful location with all the facilities you need. Nice new bathroom, comfortable beds&nice wood burning fire. Good value for a stay with the family or friends. Thanks a lot, we'll be back.

Lovely cabin in the snowfields

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay at Attungathara Mountain Cabin amongst the beautiful scenery, especially when we arrived and it was snowing. Good location and accessible to snowfields. Very cosy with its fireplace and had some unexpected luxuries such as heated towel rack and dishwasher. Cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Dog and kids had a great time.

Very relaxing

  • 3 of 5

The coordinates we were given our GPS took us off road we even crossed a river in dark thank god we met few locals who told us to stay on road till we see sign of property on the roadside. We made to the cabin very beautiful self contained, we were there for a week very relaxing is exactly wat we wanted and needed from our busy lifestyle.

NOT HAPPY- one of the bed had a huge wee stain must have gone through the mattress protector into mattress. Its disgusting and unhygenic and expected to sleep there. Its doesnt cost much to replace mattress protector obviously the cleaner just covered it up with bedspread.

Once you get used to the disgusting bedding and very steep stairs and creeky floorboards its its actually a very beautiful place. We enjoyed staying at rhe cabin. Our 9 yr old labrador had the best time running around the guge property chasing kangaroos and magpies.

We loved it.

Owner's Response: Rina I am glad that you enjoyed your holiday and that it very relaxing is exactly what you wanted and needed for our busy lifestyle.I am NOT HAPPY that you splash my cleaners alleged error on the front page.. that could have been done through a phone call or email to me and i would had the problem would have been solved.. its the first i have heard bout this issue. The beds are new and I would not refer it disgusting bedding.. that's a bit harsh. As for the GPS coordinates I say on the instructions.." do not follow any GPS leads off the Alpine Way" and I give the address to plug into the GPS. I can't do more than that.

Fantastic stay,Love the Cabin,Will be back 4sure!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay! Ive been to "rustic" cabins and this was alot nicer than what I expected it to be. The photos don't do this place justice! The cabin was more than sufficient for our needs. The bathroom/laundry is lovely and clean. The kitchen had everything needed, all basics provided (and a dishwasher which I was really happy with). Dining area and lounge was roomier than I expected. That little fireplace can really ramp up the temperature, works really well. The bedrooms upstairs where nice and clean. Didn't expect the stairs to be as steep as they were but the kids got used to it. In the evenings we watched TV or there was a heap of DVD's to choose from. Overall, we had a really awesome stay. I really look forward to spending more time here next winter with my family now that we've had a little taste of Attungathara Mountain Cabin.

Attungathara Awesomeness

  • 5 of 5

Really loved our stay, it was us to a tee. We were cosy and warm the whole time despite the -5 degrees outside some mornings. The cabin was clean and respectable and had everything we needed. We got to see wombats, deer and There were Lyre Birds calling on the hill each morning/afternoon. Satellite internet was provided, only improvement I could suggest would be ability to buy extra data pack for those with heavier usage needs. All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday and are already thinking about our next stay at Attungathara.
