We stayed two nights here during the last week of ski season in October 2012. The cottage was very spacious with 2 bed and 2 bath upstairs (sleeps 6) and kitchen and living downstairs. The fireplace in the living room was very welcome as the weather was still cold. Internal heating systems were available in all the other rooms. The laundry was handy, allowing us the catch up on washing/drying. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils, if not a little to well loved and dated. We ate out each day but I'm sure the kitchen was perfectly functional. The pantry was stocked with previous guests condiments, cereals etc. Wi-Fi was free which was excellent. A very important aspect especially with Instagram addicts. OJ popped in to check on us which was lovely and he was very friendly. Dealing with him beforehand online was a pleasure. He was very understanding and accommodating.
The town was a 1 min drive away. Being the end of season the town looked a little deserted but we didn't mind no crowds. We ate at the Japanese restaurant Aqua near the cinema. The dumplings were amazing. Saki was very good too. This place came recommended by a young man at the information office and we highly recommend it also.
The mountain ended up being closed the day we wanted to go snowboarding due to high winds but we found an excellent alternative. Drive up to Terrace Downs Resort and book yourself with Neil and Sandra to do some pigeon clay shooting and archery. It was the best day and we highly recommend it! Neil and Sandra were professional, friendly and down to earth.The views at the resort were breathtaking.
