The iconic Cradle Mountain Lodge has joined Australia’s premier boutique accommodation brand – Peppers Retreats & Resorts



12/03/2012 - To be known as Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, the multi-award winning property first opened in 1972 and transformed over the years into a world-class boutique wilderness retreat. The Lodge’s 86 guest cabins boast an enviable location at the entrance to the spectacular World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park in the northern Tasmanian highlands, just over an hour’s drive from Devonport and two hours from Launceston.



Bob East, CEO of Mantra Group which manages the Peppers portfolio says the signing of such a renowned property as Cradle Mountain Lodge recognises the brand’s reputation as one of quality.



“It is fitting that one of Australia’s greatest examples of boutique accommodation should now be associated with Peppers, a brand synonymous with providing luxury boutique accommodation experiences to guests for over 25 years,” he said.



“We are very strategic with our acquisitions to the Peppers brand and ensure that all properties are of the highest standard which Cradle Mountain Lodge more than satisfies.”



Marianne Ossovani, Head of Tourism and Leisure at Moss Capital said that co-founders Bill Moss and Glenn Willis are delighted to partner with Mantra Group on this iconic Australian tourism asset.



“Partnering Peppers with Cradle Mountain Lodge is a natural association – we believe the Peppers brand captures the essence of boutique retreat accommodation and it is a welcome addition to the established name and reputation that the Lodge already enjoys.”



The Peppers brand started with the opening of the first Peppers property 25 years ago – the famous Peppers Guest House in the NSW Hunter Valley – and now includes over 25 properties in Australia and New Zealand.



What began as a group of small boutique retreats now includes a host of luxury holiday resorts and the beginnings of a network of metropolitan based apartment hotels. Retreats include Peppers Mineral Springs Resort in Daylesford and Peppers Craigieburn Bowral through to the impressive resort style accommodation at Peppers Salt Beach in Kingscliff and Peppers Beach Club Palm Cove. The brand’s first foray into metropolitan locations has been a great success with the opening of Peppers Broadbeach in 2010. Further CBD and regional locations around Australia and New Zealand are slated for 2012.



Set discreetly within a stunning wilderness setting, Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge offers four different types of accommodation, from the contemporary Pencil Pine Cabins to the luxurious King Billy Suites, and extensive leisure facilities including the award-winning Highland Restaurant and indulgent Waldheim Alpine Spa.



The Lodge is surrounded by ancient towering forests, mountain scenery and clean glacial lakes and streams, crisscrossed with over 20 walking trails for every fitness level. Activities on offer include guided or self-guided trekking, mountain biking, horse riding, fly fishing, canoeing and more.


Rates: Pencil Pine Cabins start from $209 per night including full buffet breakfast, subject to availability. Visit www.cradlemountainlodge.com.au for bookings and further information.
