  • 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.

  • Magic! Loved the log cabin itself...

    Magic! Loved the log cabin itself. It was decorated with old mountain memirobilia, which I loved. Great location by Lake Middleton. Highly recommended.

  • We had an enjoyable stay

    We had an enjoyable stay. The batch was clean and tidy on arrival, and contained all items needed for our stay. We picked the batch because we could take our dog. It is a reasonable distance from any shops, so it is necessary to stock up on food and bottled water. There is plenty of space to park a boat, however it is a steep gravel drive and it is probably better to have a 4WD. We also found that the beds were comfortable. We would have no qualms staying there again.

    The photo's of the house are very misleading, it looks like the property is right next to the lake & it's not at all, it's across the road & up the hill - that was very disappointing The sheets were disgusting, old and stained - highly recommend taking your own. The property itself is stunning and has everything you need but really disappointed with the above

    Owner/manager responds:

    Appreciate the feedback, this is the first such comment after 9 yrs. Linen/cleaning option is available and if requested top quality linen and towels are provided. We leave older linen in the bedroom dresser in case guests who haven't requested this service need them. There are no absolute Lake frontage properties in the village and the only image online of the entire house and lake indicate that there is some distance between the two. Apologise that this guest found the listing misleading.
