This is wonderful bach full of character, and is an old mill house which belonged to the local timber mill from the 1940-50s. It then spent several years as the Tauranga ski club, before being lovingly restored into a groovy bach full of rustic charm. It's the perfect place to getaway and relax, or to use as a base after your high octane adventures around the Central Plateau.

It's located a 2 minute walk from The Park restuarant & bar, and 4 minutes from The Schnapps bar where you can enjoy dinner and a drink and a game of mini putt for the kids. 6-7 minute walk to the lovely Railway Cafe and the start of Fishers Track and the Marton Sash & Door Cycleway.

If you enjoy hiking there are several reasons to pull on your hiking boots and go exploring. The most obvious is the famous Tongariro Crossing, but there are many other great walks in the region. Check out the Owhango Lagoon for a beautiful 2 hour walk through the bush and stop off at the cafe there for a bite to eat and a great coffee. There is also the Tama Lakes, Silica Rapids, Whakapapaiti Valley, Taranaki Falls & plenty more.

Take a day trip to the awesome Ruatiti Domain. Bring some tyre tubes and firewood to float down the river & have a BBQ in one of the free old school BBQs afterwards.

If you are into mountain biking we have the Fishers track, 42nd Traverse or head to Horopito and do the Old Coach Rd to Ohakune. When you arrive at Ohakune stop in at the famous Powderkeg for a beer and get the shuttle back to your car in Horopito (have a sober driver!). While you’re there call into the fascinating Horopito Motors full of vintage car wrecks piled on top of each other. The kids will love it!!

On rainy days you can snuggle up in front of the fire with a good book, watch a DVD , play cards or just have a good yarn with each other.

This is an awesome place to create some great memories in summertime as well as winter.

Special conditions: Please note that there is no fire guard so care must be taken with young children.

    We lloved our stay at Tongariro Hut. Everything was well thought out and easy to use. Kitchen was basic but worked extremely well and was easy to use. We would have loved to stay here for longer.

    A cute cottage which was cosy when the fire was on. It warmed up in the morning with the sun streaming in, so no need for the fire. Decorated in a cheery way which made our stay very pleasant. A short drive to The Tongariro National Park.

    Such an adorable wee house! Love the cute decor! The shuttle for the Tongaririo crossing leaves from right across the street and a decent pub is a short 5 minute walk away. Highly recommend this house.

    We got a message only after that we may have to chop wood to create a fire for heat and hot water. This ended up not being the case. but I think this is something to know before booking instead of after. Either way, it was great staying at the bach.
