The Tree House
Immerse yourself in The Tree House set in a romantic and tranquil bush setting.
You can laze upon the deck, perched high above the sparkling waters of the Tepure trout stream, listen to the bird song in the magnificent native forest below, or gaze across to the volcanoes of the Central Plateau in the Dual World Heritage Tongariro National Park.
The Tree House sleeps five and generates its own electricity, sourcing energy from the wind and sun. This is in keeping with the self-sufficient philosophy of its owners. The woodstove provides heating as well as cooking, adding to the romance. Gas is used for a cook-top, refrigerator and water heating. On arrival, your beds will already be made, with linen and towels supplied.
It is only 6 minutes’ drive to the nearest cafe and bar; 15 from the world-famous and iconic Chateau Tongariro and 20 from the Whakapapa ski field and Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Because of its rural aspect, the pressures of urban life are long forgotten.
An occasional passing train, far below as it approaches The Raurimu Spiral, is like watching a model railway; a second view shows the same train nearing the top of The Spiral as it heads south to Wellington. These views never fail to fascinate even those who normally have no interest in trains.
The cabin delights in excitement, offering seclusion and providing inspiration from its design and elevated bush setting.
Stay in The Tree House and you will never want to leave.
