"The Marmot lodge is located just at the gateway to Mt Hotham, and everything about the place makes you feel like you're in the heart of the mountains. The newly renovated rooms bring alot of warmth and comfort to the lodge, and the common areas are large and comfy. It would be great to revisit in a year and see what else David has worked on. Do yourselves a favour and get a Coffee and Vanilla Slice from the Harrietville Bakery and make the most of the beautiful surroundings."
"Spacious and cosy chalet. Ideal for groups - had the pleasure of having the place for myself. Lovely village and great outdoor vibes. Local pub just next door with WiFi, food beers and good food."

"This is an amazing retro lodge set amongst gnarly gum trees and with spectacular views from the large deck. There is heaps of room for a large group and the lodge is well appointed with everything you'd need for a fun filled weekend away with friends and family. Thank you David for your hospitality and for dropping over to speak to us face to face when we needed assistance. Look forward to heading here again in the future"
"Great place to stay if your heading to Hotham but dont want to stay on the mtn. Clean and tidy, cosy warm in winter and nestled amongst the trees is just beautiful."
"16 of us stayed here over the long weekend,
Plenty of room well equipped all you need is there. Host is excellent couldn’t do enough for us. The place is clean the only thing is it’s in need of an update. Suited us just fine."
