    Arnie and staff,

    Victoria-Rose and I would like to extend a huge thank you for the hospitality that was shown to us by all of your staff members during our stay.

    The effort that went into catering for our stay, with re-organising rooms and communicating with us, along with accommodating in every way, was absolutely exceptional and ensured the ease of our holiday.

    The meals (both dinner and breakfast) were exceptional and the genuine kindness and hospitality of the staff completely changed the attitude and nature of our holiday.

    Our only point of improvement would be that we couldn’t find a comment book to write all of this in.

    Thank your for your smiles,

    Liam & Victoria-Rose

    Another great snow trip had for our little family (4mth, 2yo & 3.5yr). After staying at Habitat Chalet for the 2nd year wouldn’t stay anywhere else. What more can you want a warm bed, awesome home cooked meals, great views and friendly hosts! Thanks Rocky & Arnie

    Dear Arnie
    I would like to say Thank You to Habitat Chalet for a great weekend. Sam and Lizzy were friendly and very welcoming and the food was great, particularly the roast Saturday night. We all really enjoyed that relaxing lounge areas and the open fire.
    I would also like to say thank you for answering my constant flow of questions.

    Dear Rocky and Arnie,

    Thanks for having us at the habitat chalet, we had an awesome time even though we only stayed for a night. You made us feel welcomed and relaxed and we thank you for that.

    Hey Rocky and Arnie,

    Thank you for the hospitality! Very rare to find an affordable place to stay so close to the snow. Add good food, friendly company, and a snug warm room, you are on to a real winner, so good. As I said to Rocky, we will be back and you will be the first option for any group trips I organise.

    Next time we will be up for more of a party with you :)

    Arnie and Rocky/kie/cco, will get right next time

    Lovely spot have stayed twice this year and both occasions your hospitality was terrific. You made us feel very welcome.
    Rockies roast lamb and garlic vegies were perfect with a red after a days skiing.
    Looking forward to next time.

    We booked into Habitat for one night as we needed somewhere to stay before we checked into Thredbo the following day. As we only needed somewhere for a night, we were looking for something cost effective and comfortable and Habitat ticked those boxes and more.
    It’s a great location close to Thredbo/ski tube and in a beautiful setting and is run by really nice people who can also cook great meals!
    We had a sick baby and they were really understanding about this.

    We will definitely be back for another stay.
    Thanks and keep up the great work. Nick

    Hi Arnie and Rocky,

    Thanks for hosting us last week at the Habitat Chalet. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be looking forward to staying with you again on our next trip to the Snowies.

    Best regards,

    Arnie and Rocky are wonderful hosts that made our stay wonderful. Our cabin was very comfortable and modern, all meals were tasty and filing. The environment was beautiful and peaceful.

  14. Emily

    Thank you so much for making our long weekend so enjoyable! Great home cooked meals and friendly staff…. would definately stay again :)

  15. Jack

    Had a great stay. The cabins are great, clean, spacious and well maintained. Rocky and his wife are terrific hosts, and make the place very hospitable. The food is great, and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. See you next season!

  16. Sally

    We needed a base for summer hiking and found this place. It was exactly what we wanted and needed – great views, quiet, fresh air. A basic room without unnecessary bits and pieces and a lovely communal area to read books. The breakfast was simple and great to get you started for the day.

  17. Carmen Gillingwater

    Nice, quiet and relax atmosphere, beautiful mountain view.
    We were greeted by the locals (kangaroo & wombat) when we arrived at the guests parking.
    Clean & spacious cottage. Great friendly staff.
    We’ll definitely stay here again on our next trip.

  18. Elmore family of 5

    Love this place so much we have been coming here for the past 4yrs during the July school holidays. The set up is perfect, we have an annual snow holiday with cousins (also a family of 5) from QLD. We get a little cabin with 2 rooms, the food is awesome and caters for all age kids (ours are all under 6yo, but cousins are 11yo) and the chef caters for those special requests like rock-hard eggs; there is a drying room onsite for those wet days; there is an upsatirs room in the lodge for the kids to play, and a warm communal lodge lounge area; and there is nothing better than waking up eating hot cooked breaky, hitting the hills al day then being able to come back to relax in a family friendly ‘home’ vibe location. Keep up the great work Arnie (owner) and Luke (Manager and Chef). A+

  19. Jenny

    Such a beautiful place to stay! Clean, warm, and cosy and the food is unbelievable -SO GOOD! Super family friendly too. We only stayed for the weekend but would love to come back for longer. Highly recommended ??

    We stayed at Habitat Chalet in winter for the snow. We chose Habitat Chalet for its location and was not expecting much. To much our delight it is a hidden gem of a place! Basic rooms with all the necessary amenities provided, a communal area, awesome service and great cooks provide both breakfast and dinner. Would pick this place again and again over any 5* hotel.

  21. Paul & Kaye

    After struggling to find the place in the dark, we managed to locate our cozy cabin, quick hot shower and then sit and watch the night sky before heading off to sleep.
    Just what we needed, quiet, fresh mountain air and wonderful view to wake up to.
    Thanks, Paul

    Hi Arnie. We all had a great time during our stay. We are already talking about staying again next year as we would like to make it an annual event. Thank you for your help and hospitality, it was greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards. Brad Coates

    We had a wonderful stay recently at Habitat Chalet. We’re already talking about staying next year. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

  24. Claire

    A very enjoyable 4 days in the snow at Habitat Chalet. A comfortable room, good home-cooked food and super-friendly and helpful staff. The location is beautiful, I would like to stay here in summer for hiking!

  25. Adam Morrison

    Fantastic experience, would recommend habitat chalets to all my friends. Staff amazing, food awesome, Arnie and Luke treated us extremely well. Look forward to booking in for next snow season. See u next year!!!

  26. Shaune Pak

    Habitat Chalet was a nice and quaint hotel to stay in while we were at the snows. Hospitality and staff were great and felt comfortable from the get go! The staff are really friendly and make you feel at home.

    Rooms were comfortable and would definitely come back the next time we go to the snow!

  27. Luke Cini

    Fantastic experience!
    Family of 4 enjoyed the hospitality, food, accommodation, convenience of the location….
    Would stay again!

  28. Dan McCulloch

    We only stayed one night on our tour of Australia but it was an amazing place to stay. So cozy and welcoming. We came in the summer and went right to the peak of Mt Kozzie. The most beautiful walk and spectacular views. We however have already started to make plans to come back to snowboard here and would definitely look to book our stay here. Great times!

  29. Tony & Tazzie

    We had the pleasure of staying at the Habitat Chalet April 2018. Had an amazing time! The room was clean and comfy for sleeping, we spent the days outside hiking and enjoying the breathtaking area, The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was available toast and cereal, not to mention coffee and tea was always available ..with use of the microwave in the Dining area provided us with a convient way to prepare dinner without having to go into town daily as there was a fridge we were welcome to use. Showers were hot, clean we are looking forward to returning for another visit. Thank you Brendan and Virginia and Luke they were on sight throughout our stay… would highly recommend the Chalet, Beautiful location friendly staff.

    My partner and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would remember our stay as one of our most memorable weekends away. The cabin and main house were magical and we loved sitting by the fireplace looking out at the first snowfall of the season. Comfortable bed and facilities and lovely continental breakfast. We are considering this as a possible wedding venue if possible or a honeymoon week. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Peaceful.

    We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here. It really is a beautiful place in a wonderful location and we love to hear that others feel the same way. We would love to discuss wedding options or future visits with you.
    Thank you from the Habitat Chalet team

  32. Geoff Linfoot

    We cannot thank Gin and Brendon enough for making our stay so enjoyable. The main chalet set up is fabulous and quite kid friendly. Our 2 boys enjoyed playing games in the loft area, which was a pleasant change from them usually glued to their iPads. The open fire was a treat.
    Evening meals were great as was breakfast.
    Gin really helped us out with advice, which we heeded and appreciated.
    There is a lot of wildlife nearby with coloured birds and kangaroos.
    Our accomodation was perfect and very clean.
    We will return for sure and can thoroughly recommend this.
    Much better than a hotel.
    Thanks again.

  33. Craig

    My daughter and I had a fabulous 2-night stay and really appreciated the warmth extended to us by Arni and the rest of the staff. The meals were terrific and the location was beautiful. The only thing that could have made it better was if the window above the heater in the dining room could be cleaned so I could appreciate the fabulous view while I ate breakfast. I hope to see you again,
    Kind regards,

  34. Mon Edginton

    We had a great time at Habitat Chalet. The perfect place to avoid the crowds after a day on the snow. Arnie and Virginia were great hosts who kept us well fed and looked after all our needs. Food selection was great and the chalets were amazing! Will definately be back :)
    Thank you

  35. Peter Hawken

    Wow, habitat chalet is amazing and already booked our next trip, such friendly service, well priced food, and cosy atmosphere, my son and I loved our stay, my son broke his leg on the snow and Brendan and Veronica were so helpful and caring made the experience almost a joy. My son didn’t want to leave. Breakfasts are good and wholesome, dinners are good food at good value, very close to ski tube and Thredbo, better than staying on snow which is saying something.

    Thanks you

  36. Rani

    Gin and all the staff are so welcoming and lovely. they took such great care of us and catered so effortlessly to our dietary needs. the kids had a great time playing on the property and it so close to the ski tube, perfect ski holiday getaway! we are looking forward to our next visit.

  37. Chris

    Arnie, Gin and Brandon (any one else) were great hosts.

    My group had a wonderful stay enjoying beautiful hot breakie and many drinks around the fire place at night. We have stayed here a number of times and we always enjoy ourselves. And the property has a wonderful view, nicely located close to Wild Brumby, Crackenback farm and importantly the ski tube and Thredbo. Perfect for our Skiing holiday. Best value for money in the Snowy Mountains.

    Last time we turned up to be greeted by 2 wombats in the car park. Will be back for sure.
