In the Green season, you can park outside the Lodge. In the White Season you can unload your luggage in the “Top Carpark” and walk less than 100m to John Gardiner Lodge.

John Gardiner Lodge is a recently renovated, 6 bedroom / 6 private bathroom ‘family orientated’ lodge, which sleeps 24 people. All bedrooms are lockable, and there is a security system in place for guests to access the building. There is heating throughout the Lodge including all common areas, all bedrooms and all bathrooms.

The Lodge is styled with both contemporary & alpine characteristics including a log fire, so you can sit by the fire, and watch either the snowflakes fall gently, or view the stunning sunsets. The Lodge has full length windows, offering landscape views. Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort is a ‘photographers dream location’.

The Lodge has a large modern kitchen, with full range of appliances, crockery, cutlery and cookware. It has seating in the Dining area for 24 people. There are two Lounges, one with the fire and one with a wall mounted/smart/widescreen TV). The Lodge is connected to the Internet. Our efficient, effective and large Drying Room has a Laundry and Powder Room attached.

In the white Season, there will be Lodge Leader on site, to help you with enquiries and information. While we ask you to clean the areas you have used, the Lodge does have contract cleaners who attend the property on designated dates.

You can be outside the Lodge, participating in a range of activities, or inside the lodge, enjoying ‘timeout’, and/or spending quality time with family and friends. There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning in a warm bed, and looking out the window to an alpine wonderland.

We welcome all people to Mt Baw Baw and to John Gardiner Lodge and we encourage you to engage and immerse yourselves into a magnificent natural environment.
