“Wow, you guys are the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

Stayed in a park cabin in 2010 and loved it! We had heaps of room, a lovely warm cabin which was actually better then we expected. Huge bed and heated towel rack!

We're keen snowboarders and found that there wasn't a lot of storage for out equipment but because these guys are out of town we weren't too worried about theives. Short drive into Jindabyne for pizza and only 20 mins ish into thredbo for snow!

We'll be heading back here again!

We spent 4 perfect days at Pender lea - beautiful weather, great accommodation with enough room for 4 teenagers to not get under each other's feet. Built a fire outside each night under the stars, very peaceful and relaxing. Owners are very friendly, efficient and helpful. We can't wait to go back.

Stayed in the bedsitter (next to the big cottage). Very nice room. Nice surroundings.

Good location for trip to Snowy Mountains, as it is between Jindabyne (10 minutes) and Therdbo (It is not in Therdbo Village: the Village is 20 minutes away.

From the moment we arrived at the 3 bed with loft Chalet, everyone was impressed both from the outside and then how gorgeous it was inside as you walk in the door to find it wonderfully warmed & welcoming inside, it was a lovely arrival after a long trip (from Sydney & Melbourne)! We were also impressed with the excellent facilities included (and how similar to the pictures online everything was!!). I was very impressed with how clean each room was, and also relieved at how well-equipped the kitchen was too! (I dragged almost our entire kitchen from home, including our coffee maker, just incase, but at least now I know for next time that everything I need is there!).... everything was so convenient, so clean, and so comfortable, we will definitely make the Pender Lea Chalets a regular destination to stay at with both sides of our families!.

When organising our stay we found Julie most obliging and helpful, and when our booking receipt was posted to us, a considerate provision of directions was included which was very useful to the rest of our family members who were joining us from different directions.

Overall, an absolutely wonderful stay, everyone LOVED it, we can't wait to visit again!! :)

I have stayed at Pender lea chalet over the past 3 years, in 3 different styles of accommodation and have loved it each time. We stayed with another family each time, once in the 2 bedroom with loft, once in the 3 bedroom with Loft, and this year we stayed at the Post Office. The accommodation is excellent and exceeded expectations on all levels. The location is fantastic, 10 mins to Jindy, 15 mins to Thredbo and 5 mins to the ski tube. Each chalet has everything that you need, they are warm and comfortable, heated floors, comfortable beds, TV in every bedroom ( not that we watched them, but you can lay in bed and watch the ski report if you wish) quality appliances, open fires stocked with wood and a lovely quiet location in amongst the gum trees.
The Post Office is the real stand out! We loved it! Beautiful historic building, beautifully renovated restorted and expanded, we can't wait to go back next year! Even if you are not a skier you can enjoy the alpine experience and relax around the fire, watch foxtel, cook in the fully equiped kitchen or go horse riding!
Julie and Chris at Pender Lea are wonderful and happy the assist whenever possible!

We can't wait until next year!
