Crackenback Castle – Thredbo accommodation
Crackenback Castle is set up as a mini-house. Its generous verandah allows visitors to lean on the balustrade and enjoy the beautiful mountain views and the smells of wildflowers growing madly round the property. It has a BBQ and a little table and chairs, perfect for setting up a cheese and biscuits platter at the end of the day and enjoying the afternoon sun.
The lounge room has got hang out written all over it with big comfortable couches, a TV and coffee table. Great for setting the kids up with a movie or chilling out with magazines or books after a day of activities.
Downstairs the laundry has everything you need to wash and dry clothes and is easily accessible to dump wet soiled clothes after bike riding or swimming without worrying about ruining hotel rooms.
The kitchen is generous enough with everything you need to be able to cook up a hearty breakfast or dinner. Store your cold drinks in the fridge and make yourself a coffee and enjoy the view.
Up the stairway, the sleeping area is cute, cosy and cool all at the same time. Super comfortable beds in both bedrooms make it hard to get out of bed to enjoy the day, but it’s fun to look out of the windows out at the vista beyond.
Just a short staircase down from the main Lantern Thredbo office, it’s an easily accessible spot to duck in and out to ask staff questions about activities, grab some hiking maps, water or see what’s happening around Thredbo during your visit.
It’s a pretty central location, just a short trail walk down to The Denman Hotel for a drink, or down to the central plaza for coffees in the morning, lunch, the supermarket, newsagent, gift shop or pub. It’s close enough to these things so you don’t need to jump in your car. Use your car if you want to access the Leisure Centre for a swim, otherwise walk straight down from Crackenback Castle to access the ticket office and chairlifts beyond
Three Bedroom Apartments
If it’s three bedroom Thredbo accommodation you need for your family, try the family friendly Lantern Apartment building where the office is located. Lhotsky Apartments also has a 3 bedroom apartment plus an additional loft and is a short walk above the shopping plaza.
Snow Stream Apartments also has a 3 bedroom apartment with a loft and is located a short stroll to the Leisure Centre, rather than located in the centre of the village. It’s not too far to walk into the centre anyway, and it’s located on the valley floor so you can stroll along the river back to the ticket office and chairlifts.
It’s a good location to have your car if you’ve got activities booked in that require you jumping in and out of the car, like walks or bike rides from Dead Horse Gap or beyond.
Elevation Apartments also has a 3 bedroom apartment plus a loft and is in the centre of the village near the Black Bear restaurant. The apartment building is modern and cool and looks down spectacularly over the village. All apartments come with clothes washing and cooking facilities and are managed by the Lantern Apartment. There is currently a third night free special on all accommodation right across summer.
