  • Traditional Log Cabin with fantastic views from every aspect of the house.
  • Plenty of room for two families.
  • Located in the Aoraki Mackenzie Basin with countless activities at your finger tips.

This large traditional Log House is nestled in a sheltered valley alongside the Lake Middelton Reserve. Walking distance to both Lakes Middelton and Ohau, 20 minutes drive to Ohau snow fields. An ideal place for families with plenty to do for the kids, or a quiet getaway for adults only. Located in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve basin for awe-inspired stargazing, 1 of only 8 in the world! The Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) cycle trail passes only meters away from the property. The home is well equipped with an interesting alpine theme. Warm in the winter with double glazing and a log burner that heats the whole house. Quiet and private with lovely views from every window. Wifi now available with a small surcharge.

Special conditions: We are able to offer a linen or cleaning service but only if booked well in advance as our caretaker lives 30 minutes away and is not always available. We emphasize that this is 'not a Hotel'. It is not easy to arrange these services but we do our best to assist our guests who have traveled to get to Ohau and may not be able to bring their own linen. Please consider this when booking this service.

    AAA+This property is one of the best we have stayed at (we use bookabach a lot). The setting is serene and beautiful and the house is cozy with everything you could need. 2 living areas, cozy fire, spacious kitchen, large bedrooms. We felt like we had been whisked away to a cabin in the Rocky Mountains, but even better because it was right here in NZ! A day trip to the hot pools in Tekapo was great and the scenery is just breath taking! I wish I could add some photos! We will be back!! Thanks :)

  • Excellent location

    Excellent location. Just a few minutes walk and you will be at the lookout and get a breathtaking view of Lake Ohau. Perfect if you want to have a relaxed time away from all the city buzz. Just less than an hour drive to Tekapo which was perfect for us. House was very warm. Very tidy. Has all the necessary facilities you need. Would definitely book this place again. A+++
