Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights at the "Currawong" cottage at Highlanders Cottages.
The cottages are just off the road to Dove Lake, close to the Visitor Centre... yet each is secluded enough to feel completely private (unlike the Lodge cottages nearby, where many were sited on a thoroughfare for walkers).
Ours was a 2 bedroom, combined lounge/ dining/ kitchen, and full bathroom, cottage. Each bedroom had a queen bed (one also has a trundle), with electric blankets, a wall heater, the lounge had tv/dvd, large lounge, the kitchen was fully equipped (we cooked every day). And the wood fire was brilliant.
This place is spotless. Really well maintained and appointed. The managers are very friendly and helpful.
We could easily have stayed another 2 days, there's a lot to do in the park as well as nearby, so if you're considering a short stay, check out all the great walks first, then maybe add a few days on to your itinerary. Just remember to shop for groceries before you get here, we bought in Launceston on our way from the airport.
