With astounding views of the central North Island volcanoes This one roomed hut (plus bathroom and entry porch) has been fitted out in a rustic style to re-create a feel of the early days of NZ.

The Hut is popular with honeymooners and couples who need a romantic break away, parents with a young child and overseas tourists who see it as a unique retreat a short distance off the regular tourist highway. Whether they be immersed in the bush bath watching the setting sun or inside The Hut in front of the fire when it comes to the time that they leave they take with them fond memories.

We have some mountain bikes you can use for free.

It is very quiet and peaceful and on the same property as Wood Pigeon Lodge's - 'The Barn' and "The Tree House" (see separate listings for these) and is 25 minutes from The Tongariro Alpine Crossing, skiing at Mt Ruapehu (the largest ski area in Australasia) and 3-8 minutes from the cafes and bars of Raurimu and National Park villages.

For larger groups of up to 21 The Hut, The Tree House and The Barn can be booked in conjunction with each other.

  • We had a great stay at "The Hut"

    We had a great stay at "The Hut" . Enjoyed the rustic feel to the place, but still with the comforts of home. Warm and cosy and comfortable. The view when you wake up on a cold winters morning was amazing!

  • Nice setting in a lovely farm

    Nice setting in a lovely farm. The cute little Hut had everything we needed. Even a free wifi. The log burner was my favourite, and efficient enough to keep the whole hut warm. But you have to be prepared to get up once in the middle of the night to put more logs in if you want to keep the fire alive so that the hut dosn't turn in to an icebox. It was a shame we couldn't go skiing because of the snow and ice on the roads, but the surrounding was even more beautiful because of the snow.

  • So beautiful and so close to the mountains

    So beautiful and so close to the mountains. .Cosy accommodation we never felt cold. Four of us in the hut and we had a lot of fun, my Australian granddaughter enjoying the novelty of it all.
