Constructed from Canadian cedar wood, this attractive, self contained cottage is located in a beautiful garden setting on the rear section of our Gold 'n Views property. Nestled beneath Mt. Karangahake among stunning scenic views and only minutes from great trout fishing in the Ohinemuri river, historic gold mining walkways, a cafe, a winery/restaurant and the Hauraki Rail Trail.

"When you have enjoyed your day, relax at the Cottage; watch the Sunset - you may see a Golden View!"

"Really cosy and warm- AWESOME!"

The Karangahake Gorge marks the southern end of the Coromandel Ranges and is part of the Coromandel Peninsula. It is situated on State Highway 2 between Paeroa and Waihi. Site of the original gold rush in 1875 and steeped in gold mining history, it is now a more peaceful location offering visitors a perfect place to explore.

Follow the old railway formation - now part of the Hauraki Rail Trail. It includes a one kilometre train tunnel. Walk the popular Karangahake Gorge Historic Walkway alongside the sparkling Ohinemuri River. Seek out the gold trails in the spectacular Waitewheta Gorge featuring the famous "Windows" walk. Waihi beach is only 25 minutes away and the hot mineral pools at Te Aroha are only 20 minutes away.

Rail Trail guests - 2 bikes available (complimentary) ~ transport for vehicle pick up available ~ transport to local restaurants available ~ just ask us!

  • Everything was perfect

    Everything was perfect. Thank you. The only negative would be to maybe look into having an upgrade on the sofa beds. Other than that it was AWESOME. We'd love to go back:)

    A great retreat for the two of us for a weekend and fantastic to be able to take the dog too. Ideally situated for all the walking/cycling/activity in Karangahake Gorge and handy for Paeroa or Waihi Beach too. Cosy and comfortable, had everything we needed for the weekend. Thank you
