This is a great hut to get away from it all /very private with great views / very well set up with plenty of wood and coal and if you are familiar with using a coal range you will have plenty of hot water . Solar lighting is a bonus after the sun goes down . We found the hut very clean and tidy and wanted for nothing . We would love to come back in winter cheers shane and Deb

Wonderful location to explore the local trails and awesome landscapes. No frills hut, but has everything you require to relax and get back to nature. Highly recommend.
A great cabin in the woods to base yourself and a few friends to ski the club fields or just enjoy the peace and quiet of being off the grid. Very well built and comfortable cabin with the necessities to enjoy the alpine environment. You do need to keep an eye on the coal/wood heater to ensure you have hot water and likewise on the water system itself, it is not difficult to manage but it is not like a renting a house down the road at castle hill. My friends and I loved it and would have stayed for months if we didn't have wives, kids and jobs!
