About the property

Chalet, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

The Wild Earth Barn is a cosy chalet in a magnificent mountain setting, with uninterrupted views of the Wilkin Valley, Mt Aeolus glacier and the Mt Aspiring National Park. It's a particularly restful place to stay. The Barn is a self contained dwelling as part of our lodge. Wild Earth Lodge is a rammed earth home where we live and offer guests a unique wilderness experience. The property sits between two high country sheep stations in the Wilkin Valley, Makarora.

Makarora is a small township with a cafe, authentic local pub and DOC centre.

The Barn has easy access to the rivers and is 5 minutes from the boat ramp at the head of Lake Wanaka. The drive to Haast takes 1 hour and we are 40 minutes from Wanaka township.

The fishing is great here and the rivers are open for reel or fly fishing between November and April. A heli guided fishing trip is an incredible day!

The Mt Aspiring National Park has many beautiful walks and great hut facilities. Day walks to 4 day overnight tramps are all on our doorstep.

In winter Cardrona and Treble Cone Ski fields are 70 minute drive from our gate to the car parks.

We are happy to help you plan any activities or adventures such as jet boating, heli sightseeing, guided fishing or hunting, even a ride in a classic Shelby Cobra!

There are two other rooms available in the lodge (1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed) each with a bathroom if you require more room.

Special conditions:

Smoking allowed outside only.

Pets allowed with prior approval.

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

Fantastic location, the view is simply stunning. Everything we needed for a really relaxing and hassle free family holiday. Couldn't recommend this place enough. Loads of walks nearby. Children loved it.
