Lodge | Ohakune | #6300
In 1941 a beautiful native timber Nurses Home opened in Raetihi to accommodate staff of the Waimarino Hospital.
The hospital has since gone but The Old Nurses Home (otherwise known as Snowy Waters Lodge) & The Doctors Residence (see listing 6299) is now a boutique accommodation & events venue.
Set within 5 acres of park-like grounds, our sunny, north-facing, open-plan, rustic kitchen & lounge open out to an extensive outdoor entertainment area with BBQ's, a wood-fired pizza oven & a huge outdoor fireplace. This is a wonderful, tranquil space great for alfresco dining. The views of Mt Ruapehu & Mt Ngauruhoe are breathtaking.
There are ten guest bedrooms with either mountain or garden views. Separate male/female bathrooms each have three toilets & three showers plus there’s a drying room for ski gear & mountain bike storage.
European style central heating will keep you cosy warm and a log burning fireplace is perfect for toasting marshmallows.
Outside, a spa pool is set amongst rocks and palm trees with mountain views. We also have our own onsite playground, bouncy castle (weather permitting), The Snowy Train, a miniature horse and a pet goat.
Towering gum trees, enormous oaks and colourful gardens surround your accommodation, making it private and peaceful, yet within a 10-minute walk of Raetihi’s main street cafes. We are 10 minutes from Ohakune, 30 minutes to Turoa Ski Area, 45 to Whakapapa.

EVENTS: Murder Mystery parties are our specialty. The package (must be pre-booked) includes Doctors, Nurses & crazy patient costumes, scripts & a facilitator.

Brilliant! we stayed with 7 families, 13 adults 13 small children and there were still spare rooms/beds (we booked the whole place) was a great property big enough for everyone and so much fun for the kids, love the separate lounge and the kids train was super fun!! thank you!!!
