  • Location perfect for walking, cycling, skiing, relaxing

    Location perfect for walking, cycling, skiing, relaxing. The Powder Hut was warm and cosy with both heating and the winter sun. There was plenty of extra bedding for chilly weather and everything we needed to cook a family meal.

    Very cosy, well equipped little place that could house a much bigger family than ours. Well located (can walk to main street or up to the restaurants around the railway station). Ohakune is a cute little town with great access to some of New Zealand's fabulous natural features and forest. The house was great. Very comfortable but not so pristine that we felt we couldn't do anything. Would happily stay here again.

    Great location for walking to the Powderhorn Restaurant and bar, the hut is tucked down the back of a group of holiday baches, free of road noise, sits well to the sun and is well appointed with everything you could need.
