    The SpaceOur smaller accommodation unit is The Hut. It has stunning views of all three volcanoes (Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu). It is set in a peaceful, rural environment but is still just minutes from the cafés, bars and shops, of National Park Village. The Hut is styled like a back country shepherds' hut, with one main room and an attached bathroom. It sleeps two in comfort, with a maximum of four. On arrival, your beds will already be made, with linen and towels supplied. A wood-stove warmly heats The Hut. The stove can also be used for cooking, although The Hut also has a full-sized oven, microwave, fridge and a barbeque on the deck. All firewood is supplied (though there is a surcharge for firewood in summer). We have two old mountain bikes with helmets which are available for your use. The Hut is appointed to make the most of the spectacular views of the surrounding farmland, bush and volcanoes. You can relax on the deck, kick back with a drink and a book and ponder if you ever need to return home. Soak up the view, or soak in the bush bath, watch for the low-flying wood pigeon and then top up that drink … before retiring inside for a warm romantic night in. When you book The Hut, you will be booking a unique and memorable experience. Guest AccessYou may wander around the garden, the farm to see the cows and sheep, or explore the bush walk down to the mountain stream across the road.

    The SpaceImmerse yourself in The Tree House set in a romantic and tranquil bush setting. You can laze upon the deck, perched high above the sparkling waters of the Tepure trout stream, listen to the bird song in the magnificent native forest trees below, or gaze across to the volcanoes of the Central Plateau in the Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park. The cabin delights in excitement, offering seclusion and providing inspiration from its design and elevated bush setting. The Tree House generates its own electricity, sourcing energy from the wind and sun. This is in keeping with the self-sufficient philosophy of its owners. The wood stove provides heating as well as cooking, adding to the romance. Gas is used for a cook-top, refrigerator and water heating. It is only 6 minutes’ drive to the nearest cafe and bar; 15 from the world-famous and iconic Chateau Tongariro and 20 from the Whakapapa ski field and Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Because of its rural aspect, the pressures of urban life are long forgotten. An occasional passing train, far below as it approaches The Raurimu Spiral, is like watching a model railway; a second view shows the same train nearing the top of The Spiral as it heads south to Wellington. These views never fail to fascinate even those who normally have no interest in trains. The cabin delights in excitement, offering seclusion and providing inspiration from its design and elevated bush setting. It sleeps five. Stay in The Tree House and you will never want to leave.
