A peaceful rural location suitable for families who enjoy the natural world. Varied bird life with many bush and beach walking opportunities.. Our landscaped grounds are available for guests to explore and enjoy.

If you love the countryside you will love staying at Te Rakau.

For cyclists on the Rimutaka Cycle Trail we are approx 30 kms south of Cross Creek.

We can also take you on fully guided half or full day bird watching tours for those who want to explore the area in more depth and learn about the bush, wetlands and coastal birds around us. The cost for these tours is $100 pp for 1/2 day tour and $180 pp for a full day tour.

Special conditions: While pets are welcome we insist that they are under control at all times and that they be kept outside the cabins on the deck. Please let us know when you book if you are bringing a dog.

  • The train carriage cabins were exactly what we expected: rustic and cozy

    The train carriage cabins were exactly what we expected: rustic and cozy. Sitting outside on the deck, wrapped in one of the many wooly blankets, glass of wine in hand, looking out at the countryside view was a wonderful way to end the day. The shower pressure and temperature was unexpectedly awesome and well-received after 60km of biking! We enjoyed meeting their friendly farm animals, especially Ruby and Tom, and reading some of their books about the Rimutaka railway and the surrounding coast.

    These cabins are a fantastic place to stay if you are doing the Rimutaka Cycle Trail over 2 days. They were exactly what we were looking for and the food organised by Denise was amazing. We really loved this place.
