Quaint bush setting. The wife and I loved the quietness and seclusion, of the Chalet.

A great place to chill in a very easy environment. Arnie and Rocky provide a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was great and dinner was even better. If you want a 5 star pampered place to stay this is not for you. If you want somewhere that’s affordable and just like home then this is your place. I’d happily go back. Great value for money.

Lovely and cosy Chalets. Nice breakfast. Really nice to relax as a family by the fire and play board games while you wait for dinner. Bring a bottle of wine. Car park a little far from chalets and if you have a 2wd and it’s wet- take care!

Very cosy, lovely staff

This is a great place to stay especially with kids. The main chalet has an open fire and a kids retreat. Plenty of board games and things to do. The staff, especially Gin, were great. She gave us lots of advice about the snowfields which were new to us. She was always pleasant and smiling. Meals are top class. The rooms were quite warm and cosy and very clean. Plenty of wildlife around. Birds, kangaroos etc. will definitely visit again. Thank you Gin and Brendon for your hospitality.

Great! I was staying by myself, so plenty of room. My cabin was essentially 2 bedrooms and a bathroom (as advertised) the communal area was large and clean and warm.

Basic Room with Nice Modern Bathroom

Pros: Location, modern bathroom, pleasant dining room, excellent breakfast
Cons: Hanging space in the room would be great
Location: Skiing, mountain biking, bush walking
Located in a beautiful natural setting, with great views of the mountains, Habitat Chalet is convenient to Thredbo for skiing and biking. The hot breakfast included in the tariff is excellent, and the staff super friendly. We will be back next season!

Very clean facilities, unique location.

Lovely clean bedding & room. Only negatives were that the facilities are getting a bit tired & there was barely enough space to walk around the end of the bed.

Back to Nature Experience

Pros: Absolute peace and quiet. No one around to make you feel pressure. Everything was as promise. Well organised.
Cons: Nothing. Couldn't have been happier.
Location: We found it next to many tourist spots, and in the middle of Thredbo Village and Charlottes Pass. It was perfectly placed.
On arrival, we found our keys and instructions to our chalet at reception. The envelope contained a nice personal message. The room was very presentable. It was not a Hilton, but thats not what we wanted or expected. It was clean, well maintained and well stocked with everything to make our stay a wonderful one. It was wonderful to stroll around the property. At night, there were so many stars in the sky it was mesmerising. It was very quiet and peaceful. The lodge had tea, coffee and toast making facilities. There was a freezer which allowed us to freeze our packs for the esky to keep our lunch cold. There was a great lounge with TV and games, but my children didn't even want to watch TV as they were too busy enjoying the country experience.
