About the property

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 11)

The Barn at Wood Pigeon Lodge is a very secluded converted barn with mountain and world heritage park views from the property.

What was once a typical farm hay shed, we saw the potential to make into something unique which would be warm and comfortable, and so set about creating the woody interior which some guests have described as Scandanavian, some as Swiss and others as Kiwi, take your pick! Whichever you agree with, it is a fun place to stay and one where you will keep discovering its appeal over the course of your stay. It is situated in a rural farm environment just 3 kms from SH 4. It is only 3 - 8 mins drive to the restaurants and bars of Raurimu and National Park villages and 20 mins drive to Whakapapa ski field, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and nearby trout fishing streams or rivers.

We live onsite nearby, so can offer you advice, arrange shuttles or if your visit is during the cold months of winter, keep you supplied with firewood. We have some mountain bikes you can use for free.

We also have available two other accommodation lodges on the same property: The Hut which sleeps 4 (see separate listing #5624 under "Wood Pigeon Lodge 'The Hut' ") and The Tree House which sleeps 6 (see also separate listing #21076, "Wood Pigeon Lodge 'The Tree House' "). These can be rented in conjunction with The Barn for larger groups of up to 21 people.

Special conditions:

There is a two night minimum stay required unless there is a one night gap between existing bookings. And a 3 night mimimum stay on long weekends.

The tariff is based on 8 guests. Extras up to a maximum of 11 are charged $20.00 each per night.

The Barn is not serviced daily.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

The Barn is rustic and warm, plenty big enough for our group of ten and a welcome second bathroom makes weekending with teenagers much more bearable! The kitchen is great, has everything you might need and big enough to cook for large groups. The log fire is amazing. Will definitely stay here again for another trip to the snow or Tongariro Crossing weekend.

The Barn is a very unique property, ideally located close to the ski fields. Tim is a grand host, nearby if needed but you still have loads of privacy. Large group ideally accommodated, two bathrooms, plenty of outside room. We had a very fun time here. Cheers!

We love this place and we keep coming back to this. It's wonderful and has the added bonus that it's part of the farm, which our children absolutely love. The lodge is warm and comfortable and has everything that we need. We will certainly be back.

My husband and I, two daughters, two son-in-laws and three young grandchildren had Christmas at the Barn and had a fantastic time, it has a special warm ambiance, everything you need is there. We all loved the way it is decorated, the beautiful smelling timber and rustic kiwiana.

The setting is special, the spaciousness of the fenced yard made it easy for the children to play indoors and outdoors, with plenty to entertain them.

We recommend the Barn to any families. Richard and Christine
