A mountain road with snow and a car driving down.

We’re well into ski season, and one of the best winter pastimes has to be getting your gear together for a good ol’ fashion snow trip. Rugging up, pilling into your cars, and making that glorious trek through Victorian High Country into the mountains is a rite of passage, and what makes that trek worth it is having a cosy abode to call your own once you arrive.

The stays in Mt Hotham have just about everything to get you safe and sorted, so keep reading for a definitive list of the best Mt Hotham accommodation. 


Absollut has a truly stellar mountain view, so you know you’ll be waking up to a pretty sight. Spending all day on the slopes means you need a comfy retreat to head back to, and this apartment comes with a lift in the building to ease your aching feet, as well as being equipped with a spa bath to soak in, a balcony and a fully equipped kitchen. There’s also a gas fireplace in this Mt Hotham accommodation, a drying room and ski lockers so you’re fully set to handle all that winter throws at you.

18 Hotplate

The views are pretty spectacular at 18 Hotplate, and we’re not just talking about the view from the window. The space itself is gorgeous, with high ceilings, white wooden beams, airy and bright enough to make you feel warm and sunny, even on a cold winter’s night. There’s an outdoor heated spa if you’re feeling particularly spicy, perfect for a fun evening in the snow. The chalet is 3.5km from Mt Hotham, so still close enough without having every other visitor pass by your front door, and four bedrooms mean it’s great for a larger group.
