Recently we stayed at the Penders Barn which accommodates up to a dozen people. Bringing family in from all over Australia for a reunion, the Barn was perfect. The weather was lousy, the snow 'quite ordinary', but the comfortable and spacious accommodation ensured we were warm. Four bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a great kitchen, spacious dining and open fire were so suitable for us. if we were skiiers, the drying room etc would have been an added bonus. The appliances and fittings are of the highest quality. A little bit of luxury that would have put icing on the cake would be some extra hand towels/washers, and a few toiletries. Accommodation in the Snowies in peak season is expensive. This was not cheap! Well worth the planning to stay there though.
