This property is perfect for large groups or multiple families.

The David Fisken Lodge is situated between, but slightly closer, to Ohakune (10 mins) and National Park (20 mins).

It is also close to the Horopito end of the Old Coach Road cycle route.

Set on a large property so there's plenty of space for the kids to run around outside; set on roughly 1.5 acres.

Drying room - which could be used for bike storage during summer.

Beautiful views of Mt Ruapehu from driveway (see the photo).

Perfect place to use as a base to explore the area.

* Mobile coverage is variable inside, fairly consistent outside!

    Even though this is a lodge & not flash as, it has everything you need (except tv, lol), is comfortable, we'll equipped & very centrally located to both ski fields. It was great for our group of 9. I would definitely stay here again.

  • The place was clean & tidy for its age

    The place was clean & tidy for its age. Bathrooms were cleaned & great for big group for big parties. Kitchen is cleaned & big enough to cook for everyone. Suggest TV & stereo for the lounge & good clean lounge suits & clean curtains. Google location is the best as GPS is not good enough to find the place at night.
