'Bogong' a perfect romantic couples retreat all year round; original architecturally designed chalet by Peter McIntyre. It has been lovingly and artistically refurbished in 2015 by its new owners; a uniquely charming alpine accommodation experience.

The space

Our little chalet is one of the original chalets designed by Professor Peter MacIntyre in 1986 for Dinner Plain. It features exposed beams, timber lined ceilings and walls, cosy reading nooks, picturesque windows, a huge stone fireplace, a tiny loft in the second bedroom reached by a ladder complete with its own tiny attic window and personal reading light. The kitchen is compact yet well appointed with a new Belling oven, rangehood, microwave and refrigerator. Cookwear, china and crockery have been carefully selected for this area. Adjoining the kitchen is a sitting room which is heated by a gas heater and a huge stone open fireplace. Slim line electric wall panels heat the bedrooms, drying room and bathroom. Comfortable built in sofas flank the fireplace and a new charcoal sofa completes this space which is perfect for couples or a small family.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the entire chalet. There is a driveway
adjacent to the house with easy access free parking for two vehicles. The front door facing the street enters into the boot room. The rear north facing french doors open onto a timber deck.

Gorgeous little chalet with all the amenities you need. The place was so warm and cosy during our visit in snow season. The kids absolutely loved it. Hosts were super attentive and the complementary bottle of wine and chocolate was a lovely touch. Thank you for making our first family snow trip a success!

About Julie

My husband Alastair and I live on the shores of Lake King in East Gippsland. I am a passionate gardener, history teacher and piano player. Alastair is a winemaker who trained in the Yarra Valley on the outskirts of Melbourne; and now makes beautiful wines in the Gippsland Lakes District. We stumbled upon our little chalet at Dinner Plain by chance just before Christmas 2014 and we fell in love with it immediately. Alastair spent his childhood growing up in a house designed by the same architect; Professor Peter McIntyre, so stepping into 'Bogong' just felt like coming home. We have spent many hours and weekends working on our little home in order to restore its unique charm and character. We adore spending time together up in the high country in all the seasons; we love the natural beauty of the snowgums and the neverending vistas of perfection.
