Had a great stay. It snowed which made our children very happy. Beautifully warm, was great relaxing in the spa bath.
ChristineStayed July 2019
A log cabin set in idyllic surroundings, perfect for eating meals outside to enjoy your surroundings and feel at peace with the world. Very relaxing.
GavinStayed July 2019
If you want an authentic alpine log cabin experience then this is the one to go for. It’s in a lovely setting, close to town, walks, pools etc and once the log fire is cranking it heats the whole place up so you feel toasty warm.
DavidStayed June 2019
A quirky yet rather basic chalet which provides a wonderful base for a holiday because of its great garden and fantastic access to all the local forest walks. And dog-friendly to boot. We'll certainly return.
We are delighted that you enjoued your stay here and hope to welcome you back very soon!
DeirdreStayed June 2019
This home is set on a large idyllic section. It feels like you're in the alpine woods. Warm and comfortable accommodation.

What wonderful peace in the middle of bustling Easter Hanmer.
KIRSTYStayed March 2019
Wonderful place to stay with children. My kids (6 and 9) loved the log cottage with cosy fire, bean bags, attic, spa bath etc. Plus it's walking distance to Hanmer Springs thermal pools and has a beautiful, scenic outlook over trees. The beds are comfortable too. Highly recommend.
GailStayed October 2018
Squirrel Lodge is like a little piece of Alpine beauty all to yourself. Great grounds, comfortable property with some lovely features. We really enjoyed our stay and our dogs loved the space. Lots of water around so bring your insect spray / lotion.
LibbyStayed October 2018
What a fantastic location- so peaceful. Would definitely stay there again.
LauraStayed June 2018
As always great service and attention to detail in any booking that we have had, an all round great company with fantastic properties.
HelenStayed April 2018
This place was lovely, the gardens were big and beautiful and so close to the reserve. Great for our older kids age 10 and 14. it has a wee stream that runs through it and a pond nearby so may not be ideal for littlies. We went in the autumn and it was so cosy and warm. They had the fire going for when we arrived later in the evening. Lovely! Felt like we were in Switzerland in the log house! We were stoked we could bring our dog too! We tried to re-book for another trip to Hamner but sadly it wasn't available. Will definitely be back.
