High Country Cabin is a stylishly decorated cabin in the heart of the Southern Alps on the South Island of New Zealand. Inspired by the Backcountry huts throughout the area, it provides a rustic country-style experience.

Situated 15 minutes outside of Twizel in the heart of the Mackenzie, it has direct access to all of the natural amenities that the area is world famous for including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking & tramping, mountain-biking, hunting & fishing among many other activities.

Our 50 square metre cabin is designed to have a small footprint while still being stylish and comfortable. Take in the mountain views from every window, as you stay cozy and warm by the log burner
There are some unique differences about being in our country setting, and we may not be for everyone. We are in a little bit of a wild setting, which can mean snow, heat, bugs, rabbits, sheep, birds. So if you're after a more controlled experience, satellite TV, air-conditioning and a day spa, then we're not that place. However, if what you're after are mountain views out every window, curling up in front of the fire, and an amazing night sky, then you've found your unique experience.

Some more of our unique particulars are:

High Country Cabin is in a non urban area. As such the roads to and from town can (not common but possible) become blocked in unusual weather events due to high amounts of snowfall. This is beyond our control. It is the guest's responsibility to keep track of upcoming weather events. In the event that unusually high snowfall is predicted and the guest chooses to relocate elsewhere, High Country Cabin will accept a cancellation and issue a refund on any unused nights if notified before the checkout. A weather forecast from a reputable weather forecasting website must be used as documentation for the cancellation.

In our peak summer period (December to February) there are occasional days of extreme heat (30 degrees celsius plus). On average there are about 10 of these days during this period. During this time, the cabin can become quite hot during the afternoon. We find that opening the doors and windows creates a great breeze, and we also find it's a great opportunity to have a swim at nearby Lake Ohau.

-Our cabin features cleverly designed spaces for sleeping, using partial walls for separation and a degree of privacy. However please note that there are no private bedrooms etc. Think of it as a cozy, single room living space.
The sleeping arrangements are:
-1 Queen bed in master bed area
-1 Queen mattress in upstairs loft area
-1 Single mattress in upstairs loft area

-Log Burner is primary source of heating (works wonderfully) and experience lighting and operating will make things easier for you. Alternatively refer to the instructions in the guest book

We supply quality plunger coffee and a coffee plunger (Can also be used as a pour over if you BYO a device). This coffee is Fair Trade Certified and the packaging is fully biodegradable. These values are important to us, and form the main reason why we stock this coffee.
We also have a pod coffee machine, however due to limitations with what we can get in town, we do not store pods as sourcing ethical and environmentally friendly pods is not possible with any degree of certainty in our local supermarket. Please bring your own pods if you prefer this coffee method. (Any Nestle style pods will work)

-No TV provided

-Refrigerator is an under-counter bar fridge with small ice freezer compartment

-At times livestock (sheep) graze around or near this property. Please close gates as marked

-The driveway and track from the road is unsealed. Please drive slowly and take care especially if you're in a car with a low wheel clearance.

-A note about the "neighbours": We're a small cabin surrounded by fields and other rural homes, close to a conservation park. As such we are surrounded by wildlife all the time. While our cabin is completely vermin proof, sheep, rabbits, hares, hedgehogs, field mice and birds can enter the cabin through open doors. We recommend that you keep the access doors closed especially when leaving the cabin alone for periods of time, and use the windows for airflow, in order to avoid unwanted visits by our sometimes curious neighbours :).

Var du kommer att vara

Ben Ohau, Canterbury, Nya Zeeland

Our cabin is situated on a 10 acre property, in a rural neighbourhood 15 minutes from Twizel, a quaint little town along State Highway 8. Twizel has a selection of amenities you need on holiday including supermarkets, petrol stations, hunting and fishing supplies, hardware, and a variety of cafes and restaurants.

Outside is where the real attractions are, with the Aoraki Mount Cook national park (40 mins) and the glacial lakes of Pukaki and Ohau being just minutes away. The area has a large number of hiking trails for all levels, and the Alps to Ocean cycle way passes close by.
