Chalet | Raurimu | #21076
Immerse yourself in The Tree House set in this romantic and tranquil bush setting.
It sits aloft from where you can laze upon the deck, gaze upon the sparkling waters of the Tepure Stream below (which is full of trout) or across to the volcanoes of the Central Plateau in the Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park.
The cabin delights in excitement, offers seclusion and provides inspiration from its design and setting while the quiet access road is far below.
It generates its own electricity - sourcing energy from the wind and the sun which is in keeping with the self-sufficient philosophy of its owners. The woodstove provides the heating as well as the oven, and the cook-top adds to its romantic appeal. Bottled gas is also used for cooking and water heating.
It is only 3 minutes’ drive to the nearest cafe and bar, and 15 from the world-famous and iconic Chateau Tongariro. The Whakapapa skifield and Tongariro Alpine Crossing are a mere 20 minutes’ drive away.
Because of its rural aspect the pressures of urban life are long forgotten.
An occasional passing train far below, as it approaches The Raurimu Spiral, seems to be a model railway. A second view shows the same train nearing the top level of The Spiral as it heads south to Wellington. These views never fail to fascinate even those who normally have no interest in trains.
We have some mountain bikes you can use for free.
The Tree House at Wood Pigeon Lodge is one of three speciality lodges on the property. It may be rented in conjunction with The Hut or The Barn, if you are part of a larger group. All three offer peace and quiet, are placed apart from one another and are unique in their style.

Wow what a place! We had an amazing time at this batch. It was great escape to the calm and very peaceful Treehouse. Tim was very friendly and helpful. We all had a lot of fun cooking on the wood stove, making scones and pancakes. We will definably be back neat year to unwind in the window seats!
