Room Information

At the Lodge, guest cabins 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. 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 into the surrounding native myrtle forests.

Pencil Pine Cabins
With close proximity to the Lodge, Pencil Pine Cabins offer commanding Lodge Lake and bushland views. Available in both regular and Family Cabin styles, the Pencil Pine Cabins are comfortable with a queen sized bed and contemporary furnishings.

Spa Cabins

Spa Cabins are located in a 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.

There are two types of interiors available in the Spa Cabin room type. The contemporary Spa Cabins (pictured) feature a modern white interior with a gas fire whilst the traditional Spa Cabins feature a rustic wooden interior with a wood fire. Each cabin has a spacious bathroom which includes a spa bath and shower and offer additional amenities including in-room CD Player and coffee and tea making facilities with a range of quality teas, plunger coffee and hot chocolate. Spa Cabins are also available in a Family Cabin style with a Queen and two singles beds in the second room.

Spa Suites
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 canapés, perhaps chocolate fondue or a cheese and 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 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.

King Billy Suite
Representing the ultimate in accommodation, King Billy Suites are expansive featuring separate sleeping and living areas including double sided wood fire, king size bed and oversized bathroom with spa. The interior highlights a contemporary design scheme with premium appointments. Outside, a large deck area includes a private hot-tub. 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 canapés, perhaps chocolate fondue or a cheese and fruit platter. Additional in-room comforts include CD player, minibar, complimentary gourmet coffee & tea with homemade cookies.
