Fancy a getaway to a picture-perfect cabin nestled between the mountains and the lake? Well, we have just the spot for you. Welcome to Major Jones Cabin!

Tucked away on the same grounds as the Tongariro Lodge in charming Turangi, this gorgeous cabin is a beautifully furnished home to return to after a day of exploring this breathtaking part of Aotearoa. Summer or winter, Major Jones Cabin is the ultimate in year round comfort with cosy indoor living and a generous sundeck on offer.

Make yourself at home in the living room, gazing out the window at your tranquil green surroundings. Filled with natural light right up to its vaulted ceilings, this space is thoughtfully decorated to evoke feelings of a retreat in the woods - the gas fireplace providing the perfect, toasty centrepiece.

Whip yourself up a fresh Nespresso coffee and grab your book, or cosy up together to watch the Sky TV. Want to post the photos of your day’s adventures? Complimentary WIFI offers connectivity throughout your stay.

Start and finish your day with delicious meals prepared in your well-equipped kitchen. Sit down together at the dining table, or take your meal on to the deck and dine alfresco - there’s even a BBQ available to grill your fresh catch from the river just 200m from the cabin.

Two bedrooms here at Major Jones Cabin each feature a queen size bed and enjoy the use of their own bathroom, making this the ideal spot for two couples to base themselves on a fishing, hiking, biking, or snow trip!

You certainly won't be stuck for ideas on how to spend your days during your stay in Turangi. As well as being just a couple of hundred metres from some excellent fly fishing, there are also some excellent walking tracks accessible directly from the cabin!

Jump in the car and you’ve got a region filled with adventure and activities virtually on your doorstep. From river rafting from Turangi village and hitting the snow and the world famous Tongariro Crossing from nearby National Park, right through to wining and dining in Taupo and soaking in the Tokaanu Thermal Pools, it’s all so easy!

Major Jones Cabin is packed with charm and waiting just for you!
