We stayed in the main house, which does have an alpine character. You can stretch your legs in a cosy lounge with the fireplace, enjoy a marvellous collection of wine and read heaps of books ( for a rainy day), and have a chat with an amiable owner. Dani even taught us how to cook risotto one night. Beautiful outdoor area with a river and mountain view, and you can bring your pooches with you. Kerry, Yulia, Paloma and two pooches, Paris & Mindy.

A nice quiet getaway”

The scenery and surroundings are relaxing and there is plenty to do. The host is lovely, helpful and very generous. Sitting in the lounge at night with the fireplace blazing is a must do. Would definitely recommend for a couple looking for a romantic getaway with an awesome view of the mountain.

Peaceful and friendly”

Great place to stay with young children - and I imagine whatever your needs were it would be suitable. It is about 5 minutes outside of Ohakune town, but nestled away and really peaceful. Quick drive to Turoa and definitely would recommend.
