Dorset lodge has been our family escape for 20 years. Our comfortable three-bedroom bach sleeps 8, has a large deck with mountain views, a cranking fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and off street parking. It’s also been freshly carpeted.

Open the doors onto the large north facing deck in the summer or light the fire and enjoy cards, videos or games with family and friends in Winter.

The name "Dorset Lodge" comes from an old sign that we found thrown away at the tip many years ago that has since hung from the pergola in the garden entrance for twenty years. The house itself was an old Italian workers cottage built in Tokaanu when the hydroelectric scheme was being constructed. It was relocated to Ohakune, along with two smaller cottages at the rear of the lot, and over the years our family have upgraded it to make it warm, friendly and well appointed. At its heart it is still the old workers cottage complete with a toilet that you access via two internal doors that would have once been an outside alcove.

All beds have mattress protectors, pillows, duvets and duvet covers. You need to supply your own top and bottom sheets and pillow cases.
