Beautiful setting

We stayed at River Birches for 2 days to celebrate a birthday. The lodge is immaculate and set in beautiful gardens alongside the river. Jason organised a wonderful guide (Andrew) for our first attempt at fly fishing and then smoked and couriered our catch of a large Brown Trout to our home. River Birches is the perfect location for a short break to enjoy the river, the lake, the mountains and some quiet time too.

Excellent Place to stay

Stayed here for 4 nights from the 10th of January as part of our staycasion in NZ, the accommodation is extremely comfortable and clean and the hosts Jason & Rebecca were great from start to finish; nothing was too much trouble for them. We would highly recommend this as THE only place to stay when in the Tongariro area. Thank you both for a wonderful stay, we hope to see you again one day!

Luxurious, clean, quiet and relaxed cottage

Our family of 4 stayed at the cottage for a few days in winter. It was lovely - very high standard rooms and facilities, perfectly clean, well heated, and all details attended to (daily ‘lite’ cleaning, and fresh bread, milk, juice and fruit for breakfast). Very highly recommended.

Like staying with friends

My husband and I stayed at River Birches for the last three nights of our New Zealand trekking vacation. Jason and Rebecca were fantastic! Jason provided first-rate advice on hiking the Tongariro Crossing, including weather, gear, and transportation. After conquering that day of other-worldy views, he provided tips and transportation assistance for other local hikes - the Tongariro River walk is right outside their door! Breakfasts and dinners at the lodge offered delicious food (kudos to Chef Anthony) and an opportunity to meet other guests from around the world. However, our favorite conversations were with Jason and Rebecca themselves - they are such wonderful and interesting people!
