    We had an amazing stay! They had they fire on prior to arrival, making it nice and cosy for us as soon as we stepped in the door. The Sawmill Log Cabin was well equipped, just bring your food and everything else is there for you. 100% would stay again and would recommend for anyone looking for a little Ohakune get away.

    This was a fabulous place for our extended family to spend some time together relaxing and exploring local attractions. Lots of room for the 8 of us. We especially appreciated the large lounge area with 5 comfortable couches and big woodburner. Heaps of extras in the kitchen. We cooked and ate in most nights. The Log lodge itself and the art work inside added to the positive experience.An easy drive/ short bike ride in to Ohakune.

    A brilliant spot for 9 of us to enjoy a weekend in and around Ohakune - all the bedrooms are a good size and the living area is lovely and spacious. Would definitely stay again, thanks Wayne!

  • Great place

    Great place. Lovely, one of a kind Bach (the pictures and YouTube video don’t do it justice). Really interesting site with tonnes of history, great little walks and great views of the mountain. A few minutes from Okahune.
