Accommodation & Facilities
Chelinda Lodge comprises six two storey log cabins, one of which is ideal for a family.  The ground floor has an open plan bedroom and lounge with an en-suite bathroom, two queen-sized beds, relaxing armchairs and a large verandah. The upstairs part is a mezzanine, providing extra living space, and can also take extra beds for younger children.  The nights can be cold at this altitude so the cabins all have large fireplaces and a good supply of firewood The lodge has a large and cosy main building, with a dining room, lounge, library and bar. There is a large central fireplace to ensure the lodge is warm and inviting at all times.
