    If you are after a simple cabin with a wood burner, banks, warm shover, incredible surroundings of hills covered with manuka trees, fresh stream and quietness , then this is the perfect spot for you. Outdoor bbq will be well used in summer evenings. Enough space for two families to hire lodges together and have an amazing time.

    Had an excellent stay with a massive amount of activities to do! Will attempt the goldmine walk next time as we made it half up only to be caught in the rain! The lodges are set back from everything else and is one bedroom with bunk beds. Our kids 7 and 2 had alot of fun, even with no tv and it was really warm! We even met the possum! Great place for dogs as well! Thanks heaps will be back!
