Renovated less than 4 years ago this accommodation stands where the old farmyard barn once stood, the old barn has been transformed into a studio unit and family unit. Brand new furniture and fittings makes this a very comfortable modern stay. Well insulated so you keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Surrounded by a large deck and 2 acres of land, sit back and relax and take in the fresh air and magnificent view of Mt Ruapehu. The property boasts 2 golf greens, golf clubs available to use to practice your chipping and putting.
We are a 25min scenic drive to Whakapapa Ski area and mountain tracks throughout the Tongaririo National Park.

We are only 5kms south from the quaint village of Owhango, which is home to bird life, an organic blueberry farm, a top café, access to Whakapapa River and is situated at the end of the 42 Traverse. Only a short drive back to Ruapehu Barnstay to relax after an active day.

The accomodation was warm and comfortable with everything we needed. Great location and easy access to the skifield. I can highly recommend:)
Great place to stay, facilities are amazing. Will definitely be back if we don't buy our own!
Bach was immaculate and had everything you'd need. There was lots of information about things to do in the area along with maps, brochures etc. I would 100% recommend. Thanks Tarshia
Great location! Quiet, comfortable, well appointed and warm. Close enough to Whakapapa for easy snow access, but far enough out that in case of poor weather it can turn into a romantic weekend getaway.
Highly recommend this place, I arrived late, on a freezing cold night. Heater was on making for a lovely warm welcome. Extremely clean, tidy and quiet. If you would like to make this place a 10+ (at the moment my rating is 9), being able to lock the door would of been a bonus and a griller to melt cheese on toast. Thanks heaps for a great place :)
Rooms were fully equipped with heaters so we were always warm and everything was modern, new and clean! Best bach, not too far from shops or mountain, and comes with a lovely view :) Hope to be back!
