Three couples were thrilled to find Crackenback farm which had been booked for us by a friend. Toby Evans was a generous and charming host, we all felt it was just like staying with friends. The dinner was first class - the broth with duck ravioli delicious, as was my pork belly main. Friends enjoyed the salmon and oysters for...

Food was delicious with 5 star service and great atmosphere. This restaurant is a hidden gem, wait staff suggestions were great and tried things I wouldn't necessarily order. This is a must if your staying in Jindabyne or heading to the snow.

We stayed at Crackenback Farm Guesthouse for a weekend in November. The weather in the Snowy Mountains was beautiful and made our stay at the Farm even better. The room was well appointed with a comfy bed, hot shower, iron & ironing board. The guesthouse only has a few rooms and this makes for a cosy, relaxed environment. Common areas...

For our recent trip to Mount Kosciuszko we wanted to try somewhere different as we didn't really want to stay in the often overpriced and dingy places in Thredbo village, and the more student-focused places around Jindabyne didn't appeal either. Crackenback was a good compromise, being closer to the National Park entrance than Jindy, and not as expensive as Thredbo...

Jodie and Steve's warmth and attentiveness made our stay too short, but we'll be back. They poured us recommended wines and shared amazing stories until far too late, went out of their way constantly to provide every comfort, the restaurant was unbelievable, breakfast perfect and the whole place felt like a very dear fun-loving close friend's home. Best duck I've...

Our stay here was too short - 3 nights and 4 days of skiing at Perisher were just not enough to experience it fully. The staff are super friendly and the food as part of our package was incredible! Hearty portion sizes and amazing matched wines. We lost power one night due to high winds and the staff rewarded us...

This is a smallish guesthouse in a good location - close to the Ski tube (ten minutes) and in a nice natural setting away from the rather ordinary town of Jindabyne. The restaurant was excellent (we had a vegetarian meal). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Eclectic art pieces added to the charm. Overall a nice place to stay as...

This Alpine Farm, nestled on the Alpine Way with easy access to Thredbo and Perisher (via the SkiTube) is absolute gold! The comfy, alpine styled bedrooms with pristine white linen were a sight for sore eyes after a tiring drive through the afternoon and resulted in a good nights sleep. The communal lounge area has been thoughtfully presented with relaxation...

We stayed for two nights, arrived late on Friday evening after driving down from Canberra to ski for the weekend. Greeted warmly and shown around the guesthouse, we settled into our room and slept in the most comfortable bed. The guesthouse is limited to only 6 rooms for guests, so it is quite exclusive. Breakfast was made to order and...

This place is warm and friendly. You can easily relax here after a hard day of skiing. Great dinner menu and the made to order breakfasts were excellent. The room was comfortable and the shower was hot, with excellent water pressure.... just what you need after skiing. We loved it and would highly recommend this place to our friends. Crackenback...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently named Best Restaurant in a Guesthouse/Motel - Regional NSW, by the 2015 Restaurant & Catering Awards For Excellence, the charming Crackenback Farm Restaurant & Guesthouse is located in the beautiful Crackenback Valley five minutes from Jindabyne. The position is perfect for skiing and summer sports at either Thredbo or Perisher, being less than ten minutes drive to the Ski Tube, and only ten minutes further to Thredbo Village. Under new management since 2013, the Glenn Murcutt-designed lodge has six rooms offering every comfort, and a private lounge for in-house guest use only. A delicious Crackenback country breakfast is included. The French country-farmhouse restaurant draws accolades for some of the best food in the Snowy Mountains, with a cathedral-ceilinged main dining room and a well-selected wine list. There is a bar for relaxing before and after dinner. In season the restaurant trades for both lunch and dinner. Crackenback Farm looks forward to welcoming you and your family ... ... more   less
