The Verdict

Sustainable, private, and completely romantic—these are just some words that only begin to describe Crafter’s Cabin.

Tucked into a little corner of Thredbo Valley (before you ask, the drive is absolutely worth it), this minimal bush cabin brings you some serious solitude being entirely surrounded by alpine bushland. Crafter’s is also 100 percent off grid—the Sun provides you with energy, the water is delivered by rain, the cabin warmth is brought to you by internal stone cladded thermal walls, and waste removal, well, the worm farm takes care of that.

Here, it’s all about taking in the stunning scenery with no interruptions so you’ll want to brace yourself for expansive sliding doors that you most definitely need to pull back all the way so you can lap up the local sounds and surrounds. Crafter’s also keeps a double couple shower, cotton bathrobes, and a plush reading chair perfectly angled towards the valley.

The idea behind this eco cabin is to complement the Snowy Mountains terrain, allowing you to actually take in its rugged bushscape and switch off from big city life. Built by a pair of high school mates (locals Dan and Mitch), both have used their carpentry, draftsman, and even horticultural magic to make Crafter’s Cabin an absolute work of art.
