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.

    Lovely place, beautiful location. Just all so relaxing and takes you a bit back in time. Loved the Hut, the decor in the hut. Cleaning was included in the booking so I could just kick back and relax. Great place for a relaxing holiday.

  • The hut was perfect!!! Blew my expectations away

    The hut was perfect!!! Blew my expectations away. Quaint and cosy, yet had all the amenities you could need...even an outside bath under the stars! The views were unbelievable!!! Situated close to National Park so I was able to easily explore all the hiking tracks I wanted to, was a great adventure. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a quiet escape!
