About this Holiday House

Small and cosy mountain hut situated in Craigieburn Forest Park with views to Cheeseman and Broken River Ski fields. With no electricity heating (including water) is from coal range which is used for cooking along with a 2 ring gas burner. There is a gas heater to use until coal range produces heat. Water is drained during the winter and is to be filled on arrival via a valve system inside the house and at tanks up from hut. Coal range cannot be lit until tanks are filled. Water can be frozen at times in winter. Solar lighting. Cell phone coverage is patchy but good at top of hill.

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!
