The Eastern at Thredbo Village brings a sense of style to the NSW Snowy Mountains, with two beautiful properties offering minimalist boutique accommodation for modern travellers. Designed for couples and extending to young families, both properties are ideal for unwinding after a day at the snow while taking in the spectacular views toward Mount Kosciuszko. In the warmer seasons, the region is renowned for its superb hiking trails, mountain biking and horse-riding amongst other active pursuits.
The Oak Apartment has wowed travellers for a while now, but it’s the newer property that stole our attention. The Cedar Cabin was artfully renovated back in 2018. The space is both raw and refined with vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers, blackened steel and a Japanese-inspired onsen. The open-plan, loft space caters perfectly for two, though, because of its modular design it can also sleep four. Bespoke and streamlined joinery makes use of every inch of space.
Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the full kitchen with high-end appliances and wine fridge, meaning it’s not only accepted that you host a dinner party, but encouraged. Tech-savvy touches like Nest automated heating and cooling, Netflix, Stan, a digital tablet and free WiFi are reminders that you’re still part of civilisation, but only if you want to be.
Cedar Cabin features a smart redesign by young Sydney based designer on the rise, Nicholas Gurney who was shortlisted for the prestigious Australian Interior Design Awards (AIDA) for his work on the property. Located seconds from the village green and a four minute walk from the heart of the village, there is a winter bus stop located directly out front of the property – a handy hub for a Mount Kosciuszko snowboarding adventure.
While things might look a little different for ski season 2020, The Eastern is shaping up to be a winter escape not to be missed. With limited reservations available and interstate visitors at a minimum, the 2020 season promises to be one of the most serene and pristine in recent memory. Daily capacity has been reduced by up to 50 per cent, meaning fewer skiers and snowboarders on the slopes. That makes for a more intimate setting, perfect for guests of The Eastern.
The Cedar Cabin, part of The Eastern at Thredbo is the creation of Sydney based photographer, Monique Easton, a long time skier, lover of design and all things snow. If you’re planning a trip to the snow this season and crave luxury accommodation between snow sessions and Thredbo parties, Cedar Cabin looks like the place to be.
