Certificate of Excellence
Cradle Forest Inn has developed a reputation as a unique, privately owned and operated boutique wilderness lodge in the Cradle Mountain region. Set in 18 acres of pristine, natural forest Cradle Forest Inn offers a unique, tranquil and rustic experience in private, beautifully appointed and spacious, self-contained chalets. Cradle Forest Inn caters to a smaller number of guests and blends comfort with a touch of wilderness to ensure a peaceful and relaxed stay. With free on-site parking, all chalets are open-plan with antique style queen beds, lounge area, additional sofa bed, TV/Stereo, ensuite bathroom and private verandah for forest views. Each chalet has a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, electric kettle and toaster. A complimentary continental breakfast is provided with a tasty cooked breakfast available at an additional charge in the Lodge. Enjoy fresh local cuisine in our fully licensed restaurant and bar. Try our mouth-watering gourmet wood fired pizza or Texan smokehouse BBQ. Relax beside a roaring fire in winter or dine alfresco in summer while enjoying the local wildlife and fresh mountain air. Cradle Forest Inn is the ideal base from which to explore the many local attractions including wineries, cheese and chocolate factories, and antique shops. There are also several exhilarating mountain walks and caves nearby. Cradle Forest Inn is only a 25-minute drive to the renowned Cradle Mountain National Park and a 45-minute drive to Leven Canyon and Mole Creek Caves. Devonport Airport is just a 50-minute drive away.
