Our Bach is in close proximity to Ohakune (about 10 mins), National Park (about 15mins), and Raetihi (about 10 mins). Perfectly located in Horopito, halfway between Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields - great for your ideal winter break. It is only a 30 min drive to either ski field, once you know what the weather report is!!

The cottage is in a fantastic location with equal distance to either Turoa & Whakapapa ski fields. The bach is basic but clean and tidy and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable and kitchen is well equipped. Once you get the fire going it's lovely and warm and there is plenty of firewood. Just gets a bit cold at night and in the morning if the fire goes out. We took turns in the night to hop up and put another log on. Beautiful mountain view too. We would love to come back.
Thistledoo was a perfect base for our family of 5 during our recent stay at Horopito. We were close to Mt Ruapehu ski fields; Whakapapa and Turoa as well as National Park for the shuttle and Ohakune for supplies. We enjoyed the warmth of the wood fire and electric blankets on the beds. Facilities more than adequate to cook breakfast and dinner and prepare our lunches. The kids enjoyed the games and toys available. Amazing views from the property & sound of running water. Thank you
