    We have just returned from Pender Lea (we stayed in the Post Office cottage) which made up one leg of our summer holiday. We spent 4 nights in this amazing cottage, feeling a world away from our hectic lives, but with all the comforts you could ever want. The Post Office was big for all 5 of us …….

    The heritage of the high country lovingly restored

    The Post Office has come a long way from its early beginnings delivering parcels and letters to the high country pioneers.  The transformation from derelict Post Office to luxury holiday home is remarkable. Now lovingly restored, the Post Office is a clever blend of traditional materials and features with the best of modern appliances and finishes.

    This historic high country cottage offers you the ideal place to relax and retreat from today’s busy world. The stylish and unique cottage with an attached converted barn has been featured in Australian Country Style, Home Beautiful and Vogue Living magazines. It is surely the ideal place to indulge, relax and fully detach. If you love understated luxury, you’ll feel right at home in this unique alpine hideaway set in the heart of the Snowy Mountains.

    The spacious open plan kitchen and dining room provide plenty of space for everyone to socialise. Cook up a storm on the Bosch gas stove, then gather round the timber dining table, with its vintage bentwood chairs, to truly enjoy your dining experience. Afterwards, why not enjoy a coffee from the espresso machine and then clean up in a flash thanks to the Miele dishwasher.  If you prefer to cook alfresco, there’s also a BBQ on the porch, plus an outdoor sitting area.

  • Pender Post Office kitchen

    The Post Office is the real stand out! We loved it! Beautiful historic building, beautifully renovated restored and expanded, we can’t wait to go back next year! Even if you are not a skier you can enjoy the alpine experience and relax around the fire, watch Foxtel, cook in the fully equiped kitchen or go horse riding!

    Julie and Chris at Pender Lea are wonderful and happy they assist whenever possible.

    We have just returned from Pender Lea (we stayed in the Post Office cottage) which made up one leg of our summer holiday. We spent 4 nights in this amazing cottage, feeling a world away from our hectic lives, but with all the comforts you could ever want.

    The Post Office was big for all 5 of us – we could sit as a family and play games in the main lounge, or relax in the bedrooms. The kids played outside in the garden and explored, and then there is everything that Thredbo itself offers like walks, mountains, etc.

    If only we lived 2 hours away instead of 9, we would come here all the time. A great place, lovely hosts – truly amazing..

    Relax & unwind in the tub

    We stayed at Penderlea Chalets in the Post Office chalet for 3 nights with another couple. We were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful building and attention to detail that has gone into furnishing and finishing the property. It’s a great choice for two couples as there are two bedrooms that have their own bathrooms,located at opposite ends of the house, which gives you a lot of privacy…
