We just spent 3 days in Snowgum cottage for our honeymoon and could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. We arrived late in the evening and the fire was lit, lights were on and champagne and chocolates were waiting. Comfy bed and lovely spa with picture window. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast provisions were more than ample ( enough for lunch too!) I would like to visit again in winter so as to take further advantage of the cosy-ness, however on this trip we had great weather so were out bushwalking as often as possible. It was only a short walk to the lodge ( peppers) in the evening for dinner. Our only gripe is that we would have stayed longer if we had known how lovely it would be. Understandably they are very popular and were fully booked so we couldn't extend our stay this time ( although they were very helpful in recommending us somewhere else to stay). Luckily we live in Tasmania so can come back for longer on our next visit. We have stayed at Cradle Mountain Lodge in the past and I would say this was better value and much cosier.Unrelated to the accommodation but as a general point to note when visiting Cradle Mountain, or any other national park...PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY! we saw lots of people driving too fast and were very sad to find a young female tasmanian devil dead on the road as we left. We don't have enough of them to spare as road kill.
