  • The Powder Hut was the perfect place for a quiet weekend away

    The Powder Hut was the perfect place for a quiet weekend away. It was cosy, with a lovely view of the mountain. It made a great base from which to explore all the area has to offer.

    It's a cozy and functional cottage that has all that you need and a bit more. Within walking distance to Ohakune Town Centre and Train Station. Even though there are other units in the compound, everything is laid out in such a way that each unit still maintains its privacy. Great place to serve as a base. :)
