I stayed here by myself and would definitely come back either by myself, with families or friends. The proximity to the main ski lift is great, as well as easy access back from the Wombat's Ramble trail. The hosts were welcoming without being overbearing. They upgraded my room and let me have access on my last day so that I... More

The snow conditions were great, not too overly crowded and had some sunny days, the snow machines were hard at work doing a great job. The lodge was comfortable and warm, food was excellent and staff were friendly. Would... More

We Stayed there 2 years ago and will be staying again this year. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is great. We loved the outdoor spa, had a roll in the snow and then in the spa, it was memorable. Don't miss out on the home made afternoon tea in the Lounge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karelia Alpine lodge is a unique chalet in falls Creek. We offer alpine atmosphere with an Austrian - Swiss theme. We offer the finest and most affordable Alpine style accommodation (Winter and Summer) that is second to none. The Chalet is located in an absolute ski-in/ski-out location close to the Falls Express chair lift that is the closest chair lift to the ski school and also close to most of our summer walking tracks.The minute you walk in you could be forgiven for thinking that you were in the Austrian-Swiss Alps and not the home grown variety. Much of the furniture andAustrian trimmings are hand carved to perfection by a master carver. ... more   less
