"Really cosy and warm- AWESOME!"

The Karangahake Gorge marks the southern end of the Coromandel Ranges and is part of the Coromandel Peninsula. It is situated on State Highway 2 between Paeroa and Waihi. Site of the original gold rush in 1875 and steeped in gold mining history, it is now a more peaceful location offering visitors a perfect place to explore.

Follow the old railway formation - now part of the Hauraki Rail Trail. It includes a one kilometre train tunnel. Walk the popular Karangahake Gorge Historic Walkway alongside the sparkling Ohinemuri River. Seek out the gold trails in the spectacular Waitewheta Gorge featuring the famous "Windows" walk. Waihi beach is only 25 minutes away and the hot mineral pools at Te Aroha are only 20 minutes away.

  • A very tidy, clean and cosy cottage

    A very tidy, clean and cosy cottage. Well maintained, bright and spacious in a georgeous bush setting. Enjoyed our breakfasts on the deck with views of the Gorge below. We would have extended our stay if not booked, but alas it was. Great location to take on the network of rail trails. We will book again! Cheers Nigel and Pamela.

    Super little cottage right in the gorge. Lovely views out to the hills. A perfect base for exploring the cycle trail and the walks and tunnels of the gorge. Beautifully clean and with everything you need for a comfy and relaxing stay. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

  • My wife and I stayed here over a weekend

    My wife and I stayed here over a weekend. It was a perfect place for us and totally enjoyed the stay. The cottage had everything we needed and it has a good view to mountains which makes evening and morning very special. There are lots to do around and just walk able distance to Gorge. Nigel is very friendly and helpful. It is a perfect place for couples. Would definitely come back. :)
