Way, way out of town you’ll find a little gem hidden among the trees.
You just follow the white ribbon of a road weaving through the mountains, over rivers, along ominously dark lake edges and keep going.
Eventually, you’ll find Mount Engadine Lodge.
Our cosy home from home for a few nights.
It’s off the grid, there’s no TV or cell reception.
Don’t expect to spend your time scrolling through Instagram, the teeniest trickle of wifi is not the most reliable.
If you want to play a game, it had better be made of cardboard.
But you know what, this place has something better than broadband.
It has this…
A front row seat to miles and miles of nothingness.
No people, no houses, no shops, no worries.
How about a quick tour of our cabin?
“Tucked away between the forest and the meadow’s edge.” This is Birdwood.
A simple little wooden cabin room with just the bare necessities, along with an old heater that’ll keep you up all night (unless you want to wake up as a popsicle) and a bathroom you’ll catch your death in.
But it’s worth it, for this.
A window onto the most incredible view, and it’s own balcony overlooking the snow covered meadow below.
There’s a sign in reception saying instead of using wifi, go play outside.
And with good reason.
This place was made for exploring.
