  • 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.

    The log house is spacious and well appointed, suitably decorated to give a rustic but stylish feel. Very comfortable and warm, and (importantly) good showers! The views are great, and the location, with the little lake just through the pines is wonderful. Ohau is a stunning place for a holiday, we were there in Autumn and it went from warm and balmy to snow overnight-spectacular! On the A2O cycle trail is right there, great cycling. Loved it all, didn’t want to leave!
