About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

Nestled in New Zealand native bush, alongside the Mangatarere river, this lodge offers peace, privacy and tranquility. It has walks, swimming holes, fishing, exploring, birdlife and space. From the property you can access the Tararua Forest National Park.

1 1/2 hours from Wellington driving time.

25 minutes from Masterton, Carterton, Greytown

There is no cell phone reception which is challenging for some.....but great once you get used to it.

You can climb the ridge behind the lodge, with your phone, and enjoy panoramic views of the Wairarapa and get reception and the added bonus of a work out.

The river is refreshing to swim in over summer. And there is that lovely sound only a river can make.

Smells are fresh. Invigorating.

There are a couple of waterfalls to visit as well.

There are DOC tracks to walk, and we can pick you up and bring you back. 1 track goes to Holdsworth, the other comes out at the Waiohine Gorge, you can organise with me to be picked up, then enjoy the cafes before returning to the lodge.

Special conditions:

Deposit required, non refundable

Smoking Outside

Extras: Linen (Required, NZ$20.00 per person); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

What makes this lodge unique

Beautiful spring water out of the tap, the air smells invigorating, sounds of the river, and birds.

We enjoyed the Lodge at the French village a lot. It was exactly what we needed and as we expected. Our dogs loved playing with Susie's dogs which made their stay enjoyable too.

Beutiful place and lovely house...very well equipped kitchen. Great place for dogs but would be great if could enclose the courtyard to stop dogs from running off.
