A great little lodge, fantastic owners, very attentive to requests with fabulous food included in the price. Hot brekkies, 4 course dinners and snacks in the lounge throughout the afternoon. If you leave here hungry, you have a problem! First time visitor, will definitely be back

Karelia is a gem. With the decor, delicious food and great selection of drinks, I felt like I had been transported to a European ski resort. Nothing was too much trouble for Jerry and the staff; I arrived after the restaurant had closed and they had put some dinner aside for me. The German night was a standout - I... More

We come back to Falls Creek every winter and stay at Karelia lodge, it's comfortable with a very European feel, good food and a really relaxed, cosy atmosphere plus it has a great location for hitting the slopes - love it!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The lodge is jam packed with knick-knacs from around Europe. The outdoor spa was just what these sore muscles needed after a day (or sometimes half a day because I'm not young anymore!) on the slopes. We liked the set times for breakfast and dinner. Helped us to plan our day/evening. The afternoon tea... More

Hello Alice, Thank you for the lovely review. I am very happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay in Karelia.

I stayed at Karelia for a few nights. Jerry was very easy to communicate with for my booking and he was very lovely when I arrived for check in. The room was nice and warm. Well designed and well utilized space. Breakfast and dinner were included and food was just delicious. Jerry built the lodge by himself over 20 years... More

There is a lot to like about Karelia Lodge. It has a unique and quaint décor, the rooms are well appointed and warm, the food is good and plentiful, the hot spa is a delight, and the two drying rooms more than ample for all of the ski gear. However, facilities are only one of the ingredients for a successful... More

If your a skier or snow border then you cant go past Falls Creek for some great slope action and if you want true ski in ski out - Karelia Alpine Lodge cannot be overlooked.
