A Swiss cedar chalet located in the heart of the vibrant ski town of Ohakune with lovely mountain views. Timeless craftsmanship makes this cedar cottage a very special base from which to explore Mt Ruapehu and its surrounds.

Built by a Swiss carpenter, this chalet is packed full of gorgeous features which make the property truly unique. A full renovation has ensured that it is immaculately presented and your comfort maximised.

The space
Watch the sun set across the mountain from the cozy dining room while enjoying a home cooked meal from the fully equipped kitchen. After a day of skiing return to the warmth of the log fire and enjoy endless hot water from the infinity hot water system. Extra heaters are provided in the bedrooms. For apres ski, it's just a short stroll to a selection of Ohakune's best bars and restaurants. You can rest assured the next morning your ski gear will be dry in the spacious drying room complete with ski racks and boot dryers. Guests are provided with complimentary WIFI access.

The mezzanine floor overlooking the lounge provides a cozy space to relax or a fun place for the kids to play. The two cedar lined bedrooms sleep four guests. Extra guests have a choice of a queen fold out bed or two comfy single squab beds made up in the mezzanine space. All beds are made up on your arrival and freshly laundered towels are provided.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac street, the Mangawhero river walkway is just outside the door for a morning stroll or walking the dog and the towns' playground is just around the corner. The Ohakune township is the closest residential area to Turoa ski field and Whakapapa ski field is only a 45 minute drive away. As well as skiing, the chalet is also a great base from which to explore the regions' cycleways (including the "Old Coach Road") with bicycle hire just down the road. The Tongariro crossing is also readily accessible from Ohakune with shuttles leaving daily in peak season
