  • Knotswood is beautifully located with panoramic views of Lake Ohau

    Knotswood is beautifully located with panoramic views of Lake Ohau. The house has everything you'd need for a great holiday. It's a good base for a few local walks/tramps and an even better base if you want to bike parts of the Alps to Ocean bike track. It's no doubt a great base for winter skiing too. Highly recommended!!!

  • Our family of six (grand parents, parents and kids) stayed at knotswood...

    Our family of six (grand parents, parents and kids) stayed at knotswood for four nights in January. This is a fantastic lodge with an amazing view over lake Oahu. Very clean and everything we could have wanted was on hand, including a stack of information on the local area and a bookshelf stacked with family friendly board games. Felt more like staying over at a friends house than a holiday rental! Thanks so much for letting us stay.
