Looking for a big bach for your winter escape to Ohakune?

The Barn is centrally located in Ohakune midway between the Junction and town. Easy walk to the super market, movie theater, bars, cafes and restaurants. The Barn represents value for money accommodation for groups up to 5 people and is a great alternative to backpackers, as you get your own living space and cooking facilities, we even have a drying room and a large mezzanine floor.

The Barn has a fantastic fireplace, people have been known to complain about it being little too warm at times! Is a fun relaxed environment and is the perfect choice for your ski and snowboard group trips to Turoa and Whakapapa. Summer is great for hiking and mountain biking.

There are lightweight duvets on the beds this is to sleep on so everyone will need to bring their own sleeping bags.

Please note you must be over the age of 20 to book The Barn or have positive feedback in bookabach.

The Barn is not luxury accommodation, it is comparable to staying at a nice backpackers and you will have to do stuff like go to the wood shed and get your own firewood and clean up the place after your stay but that being said it is the most cost effective option in Ohakune if you have a group of between 5 people.

When you book The Barn the price is the same for 1 or up to 5 people.

Please check the dates below, if it is yellow someone has requested the date but not yet paid, so you can make a booking as well and if you pay first the booking is yours. If a booking is red, that means that group has paid and their booking has been confirmed and you will have to find another date to book.

  •  The Barn was perfect for what we needed, just a place to crash for a night before canoeing the Whanganui River early the next day. Great location, excellent facilities! Thanks!

  •  This property is very clean but a bit tired. I would imagine it is wonderful for the purpose it is used the most for - skiers in the winter - absolutely ideal for a large group, lots of beds and well equipped. We needed a 1 night stay en route and The Barn suited us well. The view of the mountain from the gate was breathtaking. We enjoyed Fish & Chips in the town and enjoyed chatting with the Proprietor of the Movie Theatre and learning something of the district. A worthwhile stopover. Thankyou. 

  •  Awesome property. I was really surprised how well it suited us. We were after some thing able to sleep 9. and it did this easily. We didn't need anything extremely flash and we found it a very social and full of character. Looking forward to possibly booking it again in winter so we can get the fire going. We had a great time paint balling and clay target shooting all weekend down in ohakune
