A warm, quiet, little cottage with a rural outlook, Cedar Cottage is an ideal ski bach. Located in the historic Timbertown of Raetihi, it is handy to Mount Ruapehu and skifields. It is 12kms from Ohakune and takes about 30 minutes to drive to Turoa skifields and about 45 minutes to drive to Whakapapa skifields. The cottage is unpretentious - it's a basic, older style bach. However it is homely, being fully furnished with all that you need and is priced accordingly. It has a great little fireplace with firewood supplied and a drying rack on a pulley which is perfect for drying wet ski gear. On an acre with a stream with resident ducks and eels, the cottage is situated at the quiet end of the main street of Raetihi. It is 5-10 minute walk to shops, cafes, art gallery and tourist information centre. Visit the nearby museum which opens every Sunday. Other popular activities in the area include mountain biking, fishing, hiking and hunting. Check out website for more information about the town.

  • The property was AWESOME

    The property was AWESOME. Warm and cosy with great character. The drying rack above the fire was superb for the ski gear. The beds were comfortable, the shower good, and it was stocked with games and magazines for the rainy days. The dogs loved exploring the massive section and it was just a short walk to the awesome Angel Louise cafe for the morning espresso. Thanks for a great week. Highly recommend.
