  • On a unique estate, bordering the Tongariro National Park, 10 minutes north of Ohakune township.
  • Tranquil and romantic setting surrounded by native bush & overlooking Mount Ruapehu
  • Charming traditional log chalet, a welcoming retreat after an invigorating day in the great outdoors

Wrapped in wood, this cozy ski lodge is a joy to come home to after a day in the great outdoors.

This peaceful retreat sits between Ruapehu's Turoa and Whakapapa ski-fields allowing guests to make the most of their ski holiday - simply choose which field has the best conditions on the day.

During the day, enjoy easy access to ski slopes, bike trails and Ohakune village. At night snuggle up with friends or family around the log fire to catch up on the day, cook delicious meals from well equipped kitchen and watch a DVD. Later you can challenge your party to a game of monopoly or end the day with a long soak in the outdoor tub.

The outdoor bath fits 2 comfortably and is perfectly positioned on the deck for looking out over the bush and the mountain, or at night - for star gazing. It is fed by an infinity gas hot water system.

All bedrooms are accessed from the tree trunk stairwell. The master bedroom houses a queen bed and desk space for your laptop. The second bedroom consists of a queen bed and a 'bunk room' - a cozy space enjoyed by kids and adults alike. The bunk room is separated for privacy by a permanent dividing wall. The sunny little balcony off the bedrooms is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee and soak in the views. Beds are made up on your arrival and freshly laundered towels are provided.

Ski and bike storage is easy in the covered carport while the log fire and drying cupboard make getting you gear ready for the next day easy.

Children love the log cabin (and arguing over who gets the top bunk). For their safety a stair gate and a fire guard is provided.

The cabin is located off SH4 near the northern exit of the "Old Coach Road" cycle-way in Horopito. Ohakune and National Park Village are both a short drive away making this a great location to access the region's skiing, cycling, golfing and hiking.

  • A wonderful place to stay

    A wonderful place to stay. Warm, cosy, romantic, yet spotlessly clean and with all modern amenities needed. Using the outdoor hot tub in such a serene location was blissful.

  • Fantastic and unexpected treat

    Fantastic and unexpected treat. The lodge is a delight in summer - want to try it in winter. The view from all sides is amazing but you can't beat the view from the hot tub! Lovely design, well equipped, smashing spot.
