The lodge was built in 1972 to accommodate 20 guests. Between 1972 to 1986 the Lodge has been sold several times and the building was altered to accommodate 35guests. In 1986 the Lodge was bought by the current host Jerry Brazda. The building was in desperate need of repairs. Jerry redesigned the lodge and increased the accommodation facilities to take 45 guests.

The ordinary mountain building was transformed in to what is now known as Falls Creek's only Swiss Chalet. Although the building's renovations were completed the lodge is being continually upgraded and new facilities added on a year to year basis.

Today Karelia Alpine Lodge is a Falls Creek favourite.The lodge is recognised as one of Falls Creek's finest alpine accommodation chalets.

Your host, Czech born Jerry Brazda has the knowledge and "know how" in snow accommodation (after all, he was born in it) and will make sure that your stay in Karelia Alpine Lodge is a memorable one.

The house guests restaurant and accommodation rooms are set in the old traditional Romantic Tyrolian Alpine Style. The minute you step inside, you will feel the old European mountain charm with a Tyrolian atmosphere that you will not forget.
