This was our second stay at Pender Lea but our first at the Post Office. The Post Office has a veautiful rustic feel to it while having all the facilities and comforts you could want. A large open fire is supplemented by radiators and heated floors. The kitchen is fully equipped and is large enough for 3 or 4 people... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of August on a snow trip. The cabins are both close to the ski tube and close to Jindabyne and are set within nature and you can often see Kangaroos around the site. There are barbecues at each cabin and an area to light a camp fire. The rooms are very... More

We stayed at the Post Office for 5 days and had the best time! It was so much more than standard accommodation. All the rooms were super cosy and we could barely tear ourselves away from the open fire place. As it was raining most of the time we used the kitchen loads, had and great facilities and everything we... More

We just shared an amazing week in Chalet 3 with friends. There were 4 adults and 4 kids and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The chalet was well appointed with everything families require for extended stays. There was an endless supply of firewood which allowed us to make great fires each night. The kitchen catered for every type of cooking... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay in the Bedsitter, and couldn't be happier. There's nothing more amazing than sitting up in bed at daybreak to see horses, deer and kangaroos strolling past your winder. The decor and fittings are quite dated, but that's easily overlooked when you take in the whole package. The Bedsitter itself is just an open... More

My family recently stayed at the Post Office at the Pender Lea Chalets and we adored it! The mix of old and new was just right, the beds were very comfortable and I love that they had heated floors, which was a nice touch of luxury for my permanently cold feet! The whole place was clean, well equipped and a... More

We have just spent 3 amazing days staying at the Post Office. What an amazing place - an historic mountain cottage but with all the creature comforts. We couldn't have asked for more. The owners were super helpful and friendly. The location was great, away from the crowds but only 10 minutes to everything. We would definitely recommend this place... More

I recently stayed in Pender Lea 2 Bedroom Chalet. The room was incredibly spacious with room for many more. The fireplace was perfect and the features were excellent! The bathrooms were a bit out dated but the shower was comfortable and did not disappoint I would stay here again, maybe with a few more friends!

So much work has obviously been put into making this historical building into a comfortable and character-filled alpine experience. We thought that it should have appeared on Grand Designs! Highly recommended.

We stayed there during the school holidays with three young kids after a friend told us about the place. We had a two bedroom chalet which was perfect. The kids enjoyed the horse riding and we found the staff friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again for the money as it is so central too everything.
