A traditional older styled two bedroom cottage, nestled in among trees, allows for a nice private and cosy relaxing stay. Situated in the closest residential village to the Tongariro Crossing. The perfect place to unwind after exploring the area; skiing Mt Ruapehu or hiking the Crossing. 10 min walk to the railway, or 15 min drive to Mt Ruapehu, the house is very central to restaurants. Featuring a well equipped kitchen and heatpump, drying room, it is ideal for a small family or couples.

Town offers great dining experiences within walking distance. Located just 6 minutes walk away is The Schnapps bar where you can enjoy dinner and a drink and a game of mini putt for the kids. 8 minutes walk away is the lovely Railway Cafe and the start of Fishers Track and the Marton Sash & Door Cycleway.

Only 15 minutes from Mt Ruapehu, there is an excellent visitor information centre at Whakapapa to help plan and utilise your recreation time and learn about the volcanos and The World Heritage National Park. Summer chairlift rides to the summit of Ruapehu weather permitting.

If you enjoy hiking there is the famous Tongariro Crossing, and there are many other great walks in the region. Check out the Owhango Lagoon for a beautiful 2 hour walk through the bush and stop off at the cafe there for a bite to eat and a great coffee. There is also the Tama Lakes, Silica Rapids, Whakapapaiti Valley, Taranaki Falls & plenty more.

If you are into mountain biking there is the Fishers track, 42nd Traverse or head to Horopito and do the Old Coach Rd to Ohakune. While you’re there call into the fascinating Smash Palace/ Horopito Motors full of vintage car wrecks piled on top of each other. (as shown in the movie “Hunt for the Wilderpeople) The kids will love it!!

On rainy days you can snuggle up in with a good book, watch a DVD, play cards or just have a good yarn with each other.
