For what it's worth, it's definitely a great place to disconnect from the world and be lost in the wilderness here. It's remoteness with no cell phone coverage is quickly forgotten with plenty of room for a few people and decent facilities. Very homely away from home, especially if you're out there to go skiing with your mates. Highly recommend an SUV with 4WD, that's how remote this place is. Thanks Jim for keeping us informed and your hospitality. Don't be surprised at our next snows trip (whenever that maybe...) , we come knocking back on your door. :)

Thanks Heejin, I do recommend a SUV or 4WD, mainly for winter. The cabin is located at an altitude of 1150 meters and only 15 km from the Main Range of Kosciusko and frequently gets snow. This year we had above average rainfall with a particular gully raker in mid July of 100mm in a day responsible for wiping out the majority of snow cover in Perisher. The result at the Cabin was that springs that were never there appeared and resulted in difficult access even with 4X4.

The AirBNB calendar was wrong in accepting a booking that was booked already. The airBNB calender was blocked for that particular time and as host had to cancel the booking that should not have been taken in the first place. It forced the client to look else ware for his accomodation and left a mark on my site

I live between the Mountains and the sea in Goulburn NSW. I love the Ocean having been brought up in Austinmer NSW. I fell in love with the Snowy Mountains as a kid and started to do many bushwalks adopting the Geehi Clubs Bushwalking in the Snowy Mountains book as the bible and completed the many walks. Over the next 30 years I have walked, biked, kayaked and skied all over the Snowy Mountains and worked for several commercial groups as guide during that time. I also find the time to walk my dog Banjo and enjoy the quite times with a glass of red wine watching si –fi movies or some fine dining in and around some of the Snowies best. Love to help you experience the adventures of the Snowy Mountains
