This weekend was a weekend with my son and his wife two kids and us grandparents. Kickenback is a very warm and comfortable with room for us all 4 adults & 2 toddlers. The area is flat and easy access if you are looking for something accessible and friendly for access challenged people.
This place is like having your own little "house' in the bush looking out over the mountains. The studio has a fully equipped kitchen, a little veranda with a BBQ, a cosy lounge area and a gorgeous bathroom with a massive spa. There is a gas fire and a reverse cycle heating, so its super cosy, especially when its snowing hard outside. A washing machine, dryer and drying room are also available, which is really convenient. Lake Crackenabck Resort is heaven! There are great walking tracks around the resort, the wildlife is plentiful, (deer, kangaroos, wombats to name a few), and if you visit in winter you will be staying in the best place to both relax and access the ski fields. One of the negative things about staying at Kickenback is when it comes to feeling part of the resort, you dont..... We didn't realise that when you stay at kickenback the shuttle to the ski tube is not included and we didnt have access to the pool/gym area. We needed laundry powder so I went to the little resort shop, but when mentioned i was staying at kickenback i was told they couldnt supply me with any. One of the things is love about this resort is the feeling of peace and privacy. Booking kickenback directly was so much cheaper than booking through the resort, so this made staying there even more attractive. I would definitely recommend Kickenback…
The wonderful experience started with my last minute booking and my dealings with Caroline have been so lovely. Caroline's directions were so helpful and the chalet is perfect. Parking my car in the attached carport, opening the door to the airy spacious chalet, relaxing in the spa bath, it has been such a relaxing mid-week escape from the city and work. The kitchen is well equipped and I think it might be more spacious than my kitchen at home. I arrived after dark, so this morning it has been lovely to open the blinds and soak up the scenery. I don't want to ever leave. I know I want to come back and enjoy the chalet in Winter, Spring and Summer. Next time I might even let friends or family join me (there is plenty of room), but this time I am enjoying all the space alone.
We have just returned from a lovely, restful long weekend at Kickenback at Lake Crackenback Resort. We booked the chalet and the studio for our extended family. We had all the comforts of home, and the chalet and studio were kept toasty by the gas fireplace and reverse cycle heating. A bonus was the under floor heating in the bathroom - fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would love to return in the future. The location at the back of the resort was great, we saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed the walking trails nearby. Thank you Caroline for a fantastic stay that exceeded our expectations!
