Ruapehu Country Lodge

Ideally situated just five minutes from Ohakune Township and 15 minutes from the gateway into the beautiful Tongariro National Park, Ruapehu Country Lodge offers the perfect escape for those who love the great outdoors. Whether you wish to get the adrenaline pumping or simply to relax in the tranquil surroundings, Ruapehu Lodge offers the best of both worlds. Nearby activities include kayaking, fishing, trekking, mountain biking and first class golfing. However, with just four spacious guest rooms boasting fantastic views across the golf course or mountain ranges it is also ideally set up for a private, peaceful or romantic getaway.

The well appointed rooms each feature a delightful terrace and are furnished in the style of a classic French country house. Vivienne, Geoff and Storm — the dog — will welcome you to the lodge, and as a golf 'pro', Geoff is happy to offer private tuition at the adjacent golf course where green fees and club hire costs are reduced for lodge guests. Also, on an informal basis, your hosts are willing to organize evening meals. As the property is quite isolated this is something that we would recommend.
