Mountain Lodge - much more than a chalet

 The Lodge was pretty much exactly what we had expected. A lovely 'rustic' feel to the place, with a big roomy lounge, ideal for our group. SKY was provided and all the appliances worked well. Beds were very comfortable and everyone seemed to sleep well. Views of the mountain were awesome. Location was fine with a nice little walk into town or a very short drive if you preferred. 

The Blue House Ohakune - warm and inviting lodge

 Walking distance to town. The drying cupboard was very useful and the house had spacious rooms 

Large Ohakune Ski House

 Great place to stay. We had 3 couples in our group so appreciated the double beds in every room. It is a big house with the potential to be cold but every room had a heater and the heatpump in the living room worked well so we were cosy.

Carrot Cake Chalet - Ohakune

 The house was perfect, close enough to town & perfect to have the fire going on a cold night

 awesome well setup accomadation 

Ohakune Junction, Warm inviting Chalet

 Clean, spacious and warm. Great to have use of the fire and we appreciated the fact that coffee and tea etc were provided. We liked the fact that it was near the Junction/Old Coach Road - just a five minute walk to the Powderkeg bar/restaurant. We'd definitely stay here again.
