We had a great time, comfortable beds, well equiped kitchen. Cozy warm fire with lots of wood supplied. Loved the feel and ambience of the gas lights and candles. The children were so thrilled with the birds feeding from their hands.
Only 30mins drive to Bawbaw so a great spot to stay when visiting the snow.
Would love to return again in the future.

My husband and 3 children stayed at Reindeer Lodge next to Moosehead Lodge. Kim and Cov were wonderful hosts and had our coonara loaded with wood and on each day before we got back from the snow.

An easy 20 min trip to Mt Baw Baw (plus time for putting on snow chains which can be hired across the road).

Buck the reindeer and feeding the parrots were a real treat and getting back to basics (no electricity - gas lights - gas stove, whistle blowing kettle, etc) was a great way for our family to spend time with each other. They have toys, etc but we took Monopoly and card games and had family games each night after a day at the snow.

Del's Hall has table tennis, pool table and other things to keep the kids entertained. You can use their bikes or toboggans.

Beautiful views from balcony and walking tracks nearby.

It's definitely an escape from city life as the nearest petrol pump and general store are in Noojee about 30 mins away so make sure you have all your food, etc.

Comfortable beds with warm doonas (you supply pillow cases and sheets). Wonderful comfy couch where I spent a day cuddled up in front of the fire reading a book!

This was the first time our family had been to see snow. We booked into reindeer lodge and couldnt have been happier. This rustic little old cabin at the bottom of Mount Baw Baw was awesome. Warm and cosy ( plenty of room , the bedrooms were great ). Loved coming home to a nice warm fire and our hosts couldnt have been more accomodating , thanks Kim & Cov . Would recommend this place to anyone and would love to go back and spend more time there. Fantastic!!

It was all about sitting around a warm fire on a cold weekend with good friends in a unique snow chalet peaceful environment. That was a boys weekend away so some of us are planning a return with wives next time.

forget the 240v power, which cuts out all the electrical devices in our lives
take the family including the dog to enjoy the tranquil setting of Tanjil Bren. The cabin is not for everyone especially if you cant stand fur. However for us it ticked all the boxes and provided 3 days of relaxation, walks, fishing, de stress time.
The hosts were wonderful and it was great fun with the fire and bush surrounds.

We had a beautiful stay here in a smaller cabin of the ones rented. It was clean and homely with gas cooking and fridge. No electric lights meant that by nightfall we lit the gas lamp and candles and felt so cosy by the wood fire—the lack of electric lighting was a blessing in disguise. The furniture is mis-matched and cabin style but all clean and adds to the ramshackle feel. Upstairs the lofty open plan room sleeps about eight and has two double beds. With just the two of us it was perfect and roomy. Kim and Del, the managers, are so sweet and helpful. A short drive from Tanjil Bren got us to the snow and, despite a great day of snow play, we were glad not to be staying on the mountain, which is far more expensive and commercial. Set amongst thick trees with no commercial trappings, Tanjil Bren is the perfect place to retreat away!

Thank you for taking the time to post a very informative review. It was also a pleasure to meet two such friendly young people as yourselves. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to catch up with you both again one day.
