The Whanganui River is just over the back fence, and the surrounding hills and environment is just superb.

There are 4 bedrooms inside the house and a recently renovated bach, that are joined together by a fabulous new large deck. Ideal for relaxing with a wine/beer after a big day on the slopes.

Outside smoking is fine. The deck is roofed but the night sky views are amazing!

  • Great little spot wish we had longer to stay

    Great little spot wish we had longer to stay. Lovely warm beds with lots of blankets. would have been great to have a warmer heater in the lounge or a fire.
