the Morepork Cabin oozes rustic charm

 Great place for families - our boys loved it. Lots of space for kids to run around and board games to keep them busy. Neat, tidy. Beautiful view of the mountain from the end of the driveway. Laundry can be used as a drying room for wet days (maybe that's a normal thing in NZ - but a handy thing to know for international visitors). Chairlift on Whakapapa side of Mt Ruapehu runs over summer - there was still enough snow/ice for a snow fight in mid January 2015. We will return and stay longer!!

Heartwood House, For Your Mt Ruapehu Holiday.

 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!
