Stayed July 2022

What a privilege to stay in this rustic homestead in a true slice of NZ paradise. So close to skiing, hiking and yes, even in July - swimming in the lake. It was the perfect spot for a family get together for outdoorsy types. The good stack of firewood was much appreciated, and the new heat pumps in the bedrooms kept the whole house cosy.
