Mill Cabin

Crackenback, New South Wales

Ngarigo Country



/ night

Designed and built to blend naturally with the surrounding alpine wilderness. The cabin is completely off the grid and harnesses its own energy supply from solar and catches rainfall for water supply.

Nestled in sub alpine woodlands at high elevation (1340 meters) in the Thredbo Valley, the cabin has private outlooks in every direction and takes in spectacular views of the Snowy Mountains including Mt Perisher—close to Thredbo, the ski tube and Jindabyne and a stones throw to the Wild Brumby Distillery.

The cabin has been designed and hand crafted to provide a completely unique accommodation experience. Everything has been designed and built to blend naturally with the cabins internal and external surrounds.

Apart from a few introduced items, everything was conceived purely for the space, from furniture to joinery, a concrete basin, upholstery, leather work and ceramics. Using natural and raw materials creates a deliberate connection with the surrounding landscape, combined with refined design principles creates a space of calm and tranquility.

Borrowing from Mother Nature’s resources, 26 tonne of granite rock were selected by hand and Australian hardwood timbers were sourced to build with. Mill Cabin is committed to treading lightly, ensuring that all methods from construction to operations are environmentally friendly—based on the belief that our combined impact on the planet should be as minimal as possible.

The Cabin is supplied with Hunter Lab soaps and creams. Abode linen is used in the bedroom.

A fully equipped kitchen with a gas cooktop and electric oven. Custom ceramic dinnerware, cast-iron cookware, one off ceramic pieces and speciality tea and coffee.

Mill Cabin is well insulated and the wood stove provides warmth as well as a cozy atmosphere. You’ll find everything you need to light a fire on site: wood, lighter and kindling. It can get a little colder in the depths of winter, so please be sure to pack enough warm clothing if you are planning to stay through the cooler months.

With one queen bedroom and spacious living areas the cabin will generously accommodate singles or couples looking for a peaceful and indulgent escape in the Snowy Mountains.
