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.

 Great stay with the family. The kids loved the trampoline and treehouse, and it was great to be able to take our wee dog knowing there was a fenced section. Will definitely visit again - thanks!
