At Cradle Mountain Lodge, guest accommodations are dotted amongst tree-lined ranges and overlook grassy folds. Wallabies and wombats pausing between mouthfuls of buttongrass and possums posing gracefully as they criss-cross timber boardwalks are some of the magical sights that await as you make your way along the well-lit trails and boardwalks.
Wood-smoke curling from chimneys is often the first hint of the contentment to be found at Cradle Mountain Lodge. Your private timber cabin is set discreetly in the wilderness and each cabin offers soothing natural views whether it be of the Lodge Lake, the Pencil Pine River or the rolling hills and bushland expanse of Cradle Valley.
Inside your cabin a log fire is one of the many appealing aspects you’ll find each are inviting, comfortable and rich with mountain character.
Pencil Pine Cabins

Available in both regular and Family Cabin, Pencil Pine Cabins are simple in style but comfortable with queen sized bed and Tasmanian wood furnishings.
Pencil Pine Balcony
Pencil Pine Balcony Cabins offer the same level of comfort and features of the Pencil Pine Cabin, but with the additional benefit of a balcony with stunning views over the crisp, alpine Cradle Mountain wilderness.
Spa Cabins are located in natural bush setting and are private and peaceful. Verandahs offer views through the treetops or directly into the surrounding Myrtle forest and given the proximity to the National Park, Cradle Mountain’s wildlife are regular visitors.

For those looking to enjoy extra indulgences Cradle Mountain Lodge’s Spa Suites are the natural choice. Guests are treated to complimentary fire-side port and each evening a different selection of gourmet surprises arrives to delight your senses – a selection of canape’s, perhaps chocolate fondue or a cheese & fruit platter.
Cabins are styled with hand-made Tasmanian wood furnishings and feature king-sized beds piled with feather pillows and soft goose-down duvets. Of course a log fire and a deep spa are part of the attraction.
Spa Suites also offer a range of additional in-room comforts, a mini-bar and complimentary gourmet coffee and tea station with signature Cradle Mountain Cookies are amongst some of the extra treats included in this style of cabin.
Enjoy music from your in-room CD or the silence of the bush. Each Spa Suite has a large private verandah with outdoor furniture and with views directed towards the surrounding wilderness, wildlife spotting in comfort is all a part of Cradle’s natural charm.

About Cradle Mountain Lodge
The Lodge itself has an ambience of warmth and security that welcomes you to every room. Perhaps it’s the glow of the open fires that keeps drawing you back or those quiet moments in the Guest’s Lounge, catching up on local lore and history. Then, of course, there’s the temptation of the Highland Restaurant and its walk-in Wine Cellar. Or perhaps the mood calls for a less formal meal in the Tavern Bar, a great place to share your adventures with new friends.
Inside your cabin, you’ll immediately feel at home. The layout is generous, comfortable and more than a touch romantic.
And when the snow falls, as it can even in the summer months at Cradle, there’s nothing cosier than being in your cabin. Ignore the electric heaters stoke the fire instead. After dinner in the Lodge retreat to your cabin and share a glass of red wine in front of a roaring fire.
One thing is certain, summer or winter, the beauty of Cradle Mountain is an inspiration that will stay with you long after you leave.
