Saladin Lodge was created to be a bush retreat in the early 1900s with a log and stone cabin and bungalows around the lake, it became an exclusive getaway haven for the avant-garde. The Lodge has been reinvented through a change of circumstances to how it stands today.
The Lodge is named after a famous racehorse called Saladin, owned by James Robert Crooke, who also owned the Saladin Lodge property. Saladin won the Australia Cup in 1872.
JR Crooke was the first man to drive a motor vehicle over the Black Spur.
The lodge now offers Bed & Breakfast Accommodation, Conference facilities, and An Events destination and can be reached by driving from Yarra Valley, through the Black Spur, over the Mystic Mountains, and into the Acheron Valley just as JR did over a century ago.
The Lodge is a short drive to Marysville and the snowfields of Lake Mountain.
