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.

Please note WIFI is not available at this property.

  • This bach was wonderful

    This bach was wonderful. Very cute and cosy with incredible views. Quietly secluded, yet the perfect location to jet into Ohakune or tramp the Tongariro. Would highly recommend!

  • We absolutely loved Lahar Alpine Retreat! It was everything we wanted, peace...

    We absolutely loved Lahar Alpine Retreat! It was everything we wanted, peace and quiet, beautiful cabin, fireplace and spa bath. It is a place you can switch off and just enjoy the view. Everything was easy, from the dieections to the cabin to having the fireplace ready to light as soon as you walked in the door. Our dog loved the space that he got to run around in too. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, whether it is for skiing, tramping/walking the numerous track or just plain relaxing by the fire.

  • We just love this lodge and the location

    We just love this lodge and the location. The hot tub is lovely and we were very lucky to have clear views of the snow top mountain. We really appreciate a lovely place to take our two dogs so thank you for making it pet friendly. We would love to come again and recommend to our friends and family especially for a ski season break.
