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!

  • Not a luxury stay, but very usable for a large group

    Not a luxury stay, but very usable for a large group. Plenty of parking, all-weather access and close to activities in Ohakune or National Park. Plenty of space for running about (if it isn't raining).

  • Needs changing of couches

    Needs changing of couches. Sofas and carpets, they look very old and worn out. It will be better and feels good to stay there if they change them.
