  • Close to river bike trails, river swimming, close drive to famous Rimutaka Rail Trail.

Our place will suit those who are looking for a retreat, a wild place, a rustic, natural environment. Total privacy if you'd like it, or we are close by as your hosts, and you can feel welcome to share more of our country lifestyle.

Feel like you are in the wilderness, yet only a few minutes drive to the motorway connecting you with Wellington city in one direction, or the Rimutaka's and Wairarapa region in the other direction. Upper Hutt and Silverstream are close service centres.

In the summertime, The famous Rimutaka Rail Trail is a short drive away. Also river bike trails, and a local swimming hole. Upper Hutt is also fast becoming the home to some of the best craft beer breweries in the region. Enjoy bushwalks and lazy summer nights under the stars. In the winter, gaze into the open fire, relax, read, play games. Wrap up in a blanket outside around the brazier, or enjoy a winter hot soak under the stars in your private outside bath or enjoy access to the (shared) spa pool.

    Could have stayed forever! Gutted it was only for one night - we will be back! It is clear that this little bach has been built and maintained with care and attention to detail, and has a real natural touch. In a world of it's own nestled in the valley, it has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including (while we didn't get the chance to use it during our short stay) the outdoor bath as a lovely bonus. Next time we will come with suitcase instead of bikes and stay for a week!
