Myself and my partner stayed for 4 nights in Autumn. We had a lovely 2 story apartment with a balcony over the water. The lake is lovely and a gorgeous view at any time of day. The resort has many activities and we tried to fit them all in, a heated pool, golf, tennis, archery, trampolines and of course kayaking... More

Stayed 3 nights (only paid for 2 - a good off-season deal), and loved it! Got a 1 bedroom chalet, great little duplex. Well equiped and very comfortable. The resort property is well maintained, and the lake is quite attractive. There are good walks/bike trials leaving the resort, which follow the river.

Stayed with 5 girlfrends for 2 nights while we walked to the summit of Kosciuszko. Perfect resort, just beautiful surroundings and so peaceful. Highly recommend a visit here. Breakfast was also great.

Picturesque location between Jindabyne and Thredbo with beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife. Great range of activities and spa treatments to suit all types, with very attentive and friendly staff. Studio was well equipped and very comfortable, albeit it is not serviced. Tip: If you are planning on cooking, whilst the kitchen was well equipped you will need to bring... More

We were looking for a stopover from Sydney to Melbourne using the mountains back road through Thredbo summer. The two days at Lake Crackenback were the best of our 10-day respite. The location is just fabulous, smack bang between Thredbo and Perisher with powerful, exhilaratingl views onto the main range. Long leisurely walks along the Thredbo River, just the thing... More

We stayed in a chalet for two nights, walked round the little lake each morning to a hearty breakfast, spent day one walking up the river behind the chalets - easy and restful - and one day doing a walk in Koskiusko National Park. We walked up Merritt's nature trail under the chairlift, enjoying the huge trees and forest that... More

My family and I stayed at lack Crackenback for a week to ski and celebrate my wife and my 10th wedding anniversary. Our room was more than adequate for the 4 of us. We had a ground floor room at e eastern end of the lake. My only complaint would be the greedy pigs who pounce on breakfast as soon... More

Chaeck in was easy and quick, staff very helpful answering any questions and using the resort map to direct us to our appartment. Three bedroom apartment right on the lake. Full kitchen not that we used it.... More

We had 3 nights in a 1 bedroom chalet (5A) just a short walk from the main resort. The chalet was clean and well equipped. We could have stayed much longer. We used the chalet's own BBQ on one night, but the kitchen was well equipped as well. The resort grounds are quite large and we did walks around the... More

We had an apartment, fully equipped, spacious and clean overlooking the lake and with wonderful views. It was a perfect location to visit the area and I wish we had allocated more time. The resort facilities were excellent and in the grounds I spotted a wombat! I've never seen one outside a zoo, so that too was a treat.
