The property

Cosy in winter and boasting great outdoor living for a summer stay, spend your next getaway at the Lazy Carrot; a relaxing and quirky retreat set up perfectly for the whole family! You’ll love this homely base for your Ohakune adventures. Beautifully presented with a colourful interior and comfortable furnishings, you'll have no trouble snuggling up after a day on the slopes with the heat pump and wood burning fireplace offering toasty warmth. Entertain yourselves with the fantastic range of books and board games, or switch on the TV with both Sky and Apple TV and just hunker down in the welcoming open-plan living area. There's even complimentary WiFi to share your best snaps from up the mountain. During summer stays there's a fabulous outdoor living area complete with a BBQ and fireplace. Grab a drink and dine alfresco under the sunshine as the kids have a ball on the lush lawn. 4 bedrooms here at The Lazy Carrot comfortably sleep up to 10 guests. Having three bathrooms will be a real bonus at either end of the day, as will the laundry when it comes to getting your gear dry after you come down from the mountain. Wake in the morning to a fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine and head outside to check out the conditions from the beautifully landscaped gardens. On a bluebird day, head to the slopes at Turoa Ski Field a 21-minute drive away, or hit up the powder at Whakapapa Ski Field just 37 minutes away. There are some great family friendly activities nearby, including the famous Ohakune Carrot Park just two minutes from your home away from home. On a rainy day, check out Ohakune Rock Climbing for some indoor fun. The central North Island boasts some great summer activities too, and The Lazy Carrot is in a prime spot to check them out. The Old Coach Road Bike Trail is only a short drive from The Lazy Carrot for some mountain biking fun, and the Tongariro National Park offers great hiking, including the world famous Tongariro Crossing. The local shops, cafes and restaurants are less than 10 minutes away on foot, or you can drive there in 2. And after a big day on the mountain, The Powderkeg is also a great place to unwind with a beverage and tasty meal, just three minutes away by car. Whether it be relaxation or a snowy adventure, The Lazy Carrot is calling your name!

The spa pool at this property is not available for use.

Guests should bring their own Nespresso compatible coffee pods to make use of the available machine.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
