Those hardy souls who aren’t so much seeking out accommodations at Cradle Mountain for the luxury and first class pampering treatment, but instead would like a little rustic grit with their holiday experience might wish to investigate the Highlanders Cottages. The quaint, old fashioned, yet fully equipped and modern, Highlanders Cottages are secluded, self catering, fully self contained, and assuredly intimate and private. This is an excellent location for a family holiday, honeymoon or anniversary, or – perhaps best of all – a secluded, care free spot for a single traveler on a short break to escape the rat race of city life for a couple of days.
Each and every cabin facility at the Highlanders is individually designed (and, most authentically, hand built!) and fashioned out of sturdy natural timber. These charming cabins will surely provide the weary traveler with a soothing blend of modern amenities and rustic, alpine chalet style ambiance that is guaranteed to please.
All one need do is gaze out the window at the charming natural bushland setting, accompanied by thrilling vistas of rain forest and mountain scenery. Such sublime sights and sounds are more than capable of melting the cold heart of even the most cynical, world weary pilgrim.
Location wise, the Highlanders Cottages are set down on ten acres of natural, untrammeled bushland, a very accessible 200 metres from the National Park’s Cradle Information Centre (the best place to obtain brochures and maps, with which to optimize your holiday experience) and shuttle bus terminal. The Cottages lie just two minutes away by shuttle.
And if your fancy turns to nature watching, you may just hit the jackpot here. The area features such perennials as the world famous Tasmanian Devil, the wallaby, the wombat, and – on rare occasions – even a platypus!
Cradle Mountain Highlanders Cottages offer hand built, self contained cabins in a breath taking location. The traditional mountain chalet style cabins are perfect for solo travelers, couples and families, and larger groups can also be accommodated. The twelve cottages all have a charm of their own and are positioned with varying degrees of seclusion.
Conveniently located just 200 metres from the Visitors Information Centre and taking up ten acres of spectacular bushland, Cradle Mountain Highlanders Cottages are all fully self contained, well heated and are the ideal option when choosing your Cradle Mountain accommodation.
