Location / Nearby Wood Pigeon Lodge
Number of rooms
The Hut at Wood Pigeon Lodge allows you the chance to stay at a romantic rural retreat where no other offers the same. You have views of the Tongariro World Heritage area and the Tongariro Alpine Crossing from your windows at a location away from the noise of a busy tourist village. A cosy fire treats you on a cool night and the views offers NZ at its best. My promise is that you wont be disappointed.
Awesome location, comfortable bed, warm fire, hot shower, what more could you want?
Tim is a great host and this is the best location to explore the area. We stayed in the Hut and loved it. Perfect for couples. View of the mountain from your bed. Warm shower. Fire going when you arrive. Tim will even light it for you if you are late getting home. Can't beat that.
Great family ski break at Wood Pigeon Lodge
We were a group of 5 adults and 5 teenagers. We stayed to ski at Whakapapa and it was an ideal location. Tim is a fabulous host. The barn sleeps 10 easily and it has fabulous character. We enjoyed being off the grid with our teens. They played cards, helped with dishes and had to be considerate of each other in a small space. With great friends and delicious food it couldn't have been a better famiky break away from the city. The location is 5 minutes from a mini supermarket and some restaurants and bars. Only 10 minutes to the Chateau and 35 minutes to Ohakune for a change of scenery too. There are board games, theres an outdoor bbq under a verandah for cooking and the second bathroom is a godsend for a group of more than 6 people. I loved that the accomodation includes linen and towels and cleaning. Everything has been considered here. Great cooking facilities, two fridges. Highly recommend this venue, lovely hosts, the barn was so lovely and warm for a winter stay. We'd love to go back in summer. …
Such a lovely stay!
Can highly recommend this property. Tim was the perfect host and came to welcome us on arrival. We stayed in the Barn which was huge! Certainly more than two people needed, but it was the only option left. Communication was good with Tim and he was quick to remedy an issue we had in the house. My original email request was made on their “online query form”, which went into his junk email folder. So suggest you email direct if you want a response. The kitchen was well equipped. We appreciated their commitment to the environment, with separator food scraps, recycling and general rubbish. They had a good selection of games and jigsaw puzzles (most with pieces missing!). There is a lovely outdoor area to sit, and the washing machine came with washing powder, which was great. The Barn is better suited to larger groups, but it was a great place to stay. Would not hesitate to come back to this whisper quiet location! …
Great little Lodge
We stayed at the Hut, which is such a cute little place, lovingly decorated, with big windows to enjoy the views on a sunny day and a gorgeous fire place for the cold and rainy days. The owners are incredibly nice and accommodating. We can recommened this place whole-heartedly to everyone who enjoys a quiet stay with plenty of surrounding nature! :)
