Brand New Elk!

Elk at Falls, located in the heart of the stunning Falls Creek Village has just completed a major renovation.

It always seems impossible until it is done... and so it seemed impossible in October last year as the epic refurbishment of Elk at Falls commenced, that the project would be finished by the opening of the ski season in June 2017.

A key landmark and an important part of Falls Creek history, Elk at Falls took new ownership in 2011 by Leanne O’Connor and Peter Duffy and was rebranded from the former Julian’s Lodge. Originally built circa 1966, it operated as lodge style accommodation. A subsequent refurbishment of three apartments and the restaurant in 2007 began the transformation.

Since the conclusion of the 2016 ski season, much of Elk’s lodge-style accommodation has been completely rebuilt in a challenging and rewarding effort by all involved, in a race against time and weather. The development team has been led by experienced Falls Creek builders, Alpine Building Company, owned by Damien Allport and Shane Lawther.

The renovation has seen the addition of five deluxe suites and five luxury apartments to the Elk offering to suit couples, families and groups.

Interiors by Coy+Yiontis architects with nordic inspired furniture and fittings, luxury beds and linen, the latest heating, security and wifi systems, coupled with stunning alpine views from every room make Elk at Falls the place to stay this ski season.

Two new ski stores, complete with Montana boot dryers and ski racks, dedicated boot on/off areas, new restaurant bathrooms, a stunning new entry foyer and impressive exterior design complete the Elk transformation.

Guests and locals will be pleased that largely unchanged is Elk’s wonderful restaurant with it’s cosy interior and 360 degree fireplace. Run by local culinary genius, Barry Iddles, Elk restaurant is open 7 days a week during winter for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We’d love to welcome you to our new Elk!

Reviews

Sensational stay..yet again at Elk

"Third time I have stayed at Elk at Falls and another sensational stay. We stayed in a large 4 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. The apartments are modern, spotlessly clean and spacious with all essential ammenities. The lodges location provides true ski-in ski-out ability for even our youngest kids in the morning. Great drying room facilities also and amazing view from our apartment. We ate one dinner at Elk restaurant which was awesome also. A nice new touch is a private oversnow vehicle which will pick you up from oversnow terminal with your luggage if you stay 5 or more nights. Thanks Rochelle and Leanne for another great stay"

Outstanding

"I have seen a lot of changes over the past 25 years at Falls Creek but none better than the revamp of Elk at Falls. In arguably one of the best locations on the mountain, the quality of the accommodation couple with an in-house restaurant worthy of being compared to a top city restaurant, this deserves every bit of a 5 star rating. We will be back in 2019! Thank you."

So warm and comfy

"Me and my partner stayed here with another couple during the start of the season, our room was super clean and had Netflix which was a plus. The front receptionist, Richelle, was extremely helpful with any issues we had and always answered our calls. We loved our time at Elk and would definitely stay there again."

Great Place to stay at Falls Creek

"We (two couples) stayed at Elk this past weekend in Apartment 13. Elk has been beautifully renovated and is in a great location in the heart of the village. Everywhere is a short walk. It's also genuinely ski in ski out. As an added bonus the restaurant downstairs does a great breakfast."
