The room was gorgeous and comfortable with awesome looking view. When I lied on the bed and took my head on the soft pillow, I think I was in a dreamy world. Ohh great time it was. When I came back to visit the nearby place I must come here.

Lovely cosy chalets with everything as advertised and expected. Generous with amenities. Lovely setting in the middle of peaceful Crackenback, surrounded by hills and horses and wallabies. Easy to get too and great during winter as well as summer.

Spent three nights in the 10 bed chalet in early December. Excellent location about half way between Thredbo and Jindabyne (probably a bit closer to Jindabyne) and our chalet was nestled up amongst bushland high on a hill (lots of native wildlife close by). No views to speak of, but surrounded by nature which was nice. What I didn’t expect... More

We booked the Cottage for 3 nights and absolutely loved our time at Pender Lea. Initially we had some issues with booking through an external source, but this was quickly resolved with fantastic communication. The cottage has 4 bedrooms with enough room to comfortably sleep 13 people and plenty of room to cater for a large group. We had 3... More

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
