Had a great stay. It snowed which made our children very happy. Beautifully warm, was great relaxing in the spa bath.

Stayed 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.

Stayed 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.

Stayed 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.

What wonderful peace in the middle of bustling Easter Hanmer.

Stayed 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.

Stayed 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.

Stayed October 2018

What a fantastic location- so peaceful. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed 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.

Stayed 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.
