Soak in the quirky creative character of The Mud Hut home & pottery workshop. Backing onto native forest at the base of Mt Ruapehu this is the perfect spot to unwind with gorgeous forest and mountain walks close by. A Prime spot only mins walk from restaurants/cafes/bars & Turoa ski field shuttle. Enjoy Jude's homemade baking treats & at the end of your day up the mountain, sink into her outdoor bath with the stars and sound of mountain stream .. A truly unique and charming Ohakune experience!
“A great wonderful stay from a friendly host, Judith. The room was cosy and already warmed (room and bed) while we check-in. An expected home bake platter will be served but was not expected it was soooo delicious. We were served with a banana cake loaf with choc topping and believed it or not, so far is the best banana cake ever had. The outdoor fire bath was also ready for us after a long drive. Vivienne has so enjoyed the hot soak with the light fragrance smell although is just about 3'c that night and we managed to take some photos as well (checkout "#xleovy", will upload some photos). If you planning to go Turoa, this is the right place to choose as is really near to town, restaurant and only 20min to Turoa skifield. Recommended!”
Warm and spacious log house, plenty of room for families or a group of friends. Views of the Mountain, playground just across the road. Short walk to local bars and Restaurants, track transport and local supermarket. Feels like a home away from home. Dog friendly on request. Walk in and relax, enjoying the tranquility of National Park and its surrounds.
“Great little place in National Park to unwind after a long day of activities. Nice and cosy, couples will love the loft bedroom, and the bathroom is very nice with a spacious shower.”
Welcome to The Gables at Horopito, in the Central North Island of New Zealand. We have a fully self-contained 42sqm guest wing as part of our modern, recently constructed gabled design home. Set on 4 acres of establishing, newly created garden, with great night sky viewing. Our guest wing has its' own private entry and garden area with vehicle parking included at the door. Mt Ruapehu views are seen from the majority of the grounds. Location is 15 mins north of Ohakune town.
“This is a fabulous place to stay for as little as one comfortable night or for much longer. The location is great if you’re in the area - close to Ohakune and the mountain but very quietly situated just off the highway. The self-contained unit is spacious, very well appointed with absolutely everything you might need or want and many thoughtful extra touches. There are coat hooks and an umbrella in the porch, for example, and a chess set and board games, as well as TV, for those who just want to relax in a comfortable and cosy space. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and there are ample supplies for breakfast, including free range eggs, fresh bread and many other options. Michelle is a most welcoming and caring host. I couldn’t recommend The Gables more highly.”
