The bach has a sunny outdoor courtyard for relaxing in summer and a cosy fire for the winter. It has all the essentials including linen, electric blankets, basic pantry items, washing machine, books dvds and wifi.
We are centrally placed for winter skiing and in summer for the new Mountain to the Sea Cycleway. The Tongariro Crossing buses leave Raetihi just down the street.
Raetihi is an old milling town with a step back in time feeling. New Zealand the way it was.Explore the old town with historic buildings, chat with the lovely country people who can tell you some history. View from the road the fabulous Ratana Church high on a hill overlooking the town. See the town many movies have been made in and nearby Horipito where the movie Smash Palace was made. Horipito Motors is a fascinating place to visit.
The Waimarino golf course is nearby and visitors are always welcome.

Lovely, querky property. Warm and comfortable. We loved the location, wood fire and bedding. We enjoyed the books on photography and a quick peek into the ajoining art gallery. We couldn't get the DVD player working, and the bathroom basin tap and toilet seat bolts could do with some attention. This didn't detract from our visit and we would definitely stay again.
