Description

  • Classic two bedroom cottage on spacious, flat quarter acre
  • Ideally located close to Mt Ruapehu
  • Perfect base for summer and winter sports; bush trails, Horse trekking, skiing, snowboarding

Raetihi Cottage has become a slice of history since being built approximately 100 years ago. Many fabulous family holidays have been spent in winter and summer months with lots of local activities to keep you busy in both seasons. Set on a large flat section there is plenty of room for the kids to run around!

A stay at Raetihi Cottage will give you the chance to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of modern life. With no TV or Wi-Fi, the kids have no option but to get outside for cricket, swing ball, kick the ball around or play hide and seek. There are books to read, board games to play, and a comfortable lounge to sit and chat by the fire. Sleeping up to 11, take the opportunity to bring the extended family!

This cottage makes an ideal base for your winter skiing or snowboarding trips. This region is famous for it's skifields set on an active volcano, Mt Ruapehu. Turoa being closest at just 30 minutes away and Whakapapa 45 minutes makes it easy to choose where to ski depending on weather conditions. Mountain bike trails, bush walks and many other nearby activities can fill a day if snow is not your thing. Raetihi is on the outskirts of Ohakune (10 minutes away) where they have a movie theatre, shops, laundromat, bars/restaurants and world famous chocolate eclairs! The Waiouru Army Museum is a short drive away and is highly recommended.

If you're staying at the cottage in winter then our friendly local property manager will light the fire for you so that it's nice and toasty for your arrival. The coal range fire is used to heat the shower water but it doesn't take long to heat up.

Raetihi is a small, friendly town. Find a jem in the quality op shop, a long lunch at Angel Lousie cafe, takeaways at Coach Cafe or take a night off cooking and eat a yummy meal at the Cosmopolitan Club Friday or Saturday evenings. Raetihi Cottage is a family friendly home that can transport you back to the bach of old. Are you ready to unwind? Book in today.

Special conditions: The cottage is non smoking but feel free to smoke outside. We'd appreciate you picking up any butts.
