THE OLD POST OFFICE LODGE
Check In: 15:00|Check Out: 11:00
Step back in time ....
This iconic century old Owhango Post Office has been converted into two distinct guest wings, with the option of booking the entire inter-connectable Lodge to accommodate up to 18 guests in one 7-bedroom haven, complete with Finnish sauna cabin, hot-tub spa-pool and fire-pit.
A perfect location for groups of couples, corporate retreats and family groups wanting their own gorgeous opulent stay in this iconic historic building, located in the little village of Owhango, known as “Basecamp to the Ruapehu District”. Whether you are mountain-bikers, trek hikers, or ski-bunnies, or you love deer hunting or trout fishing, this King Country location, is the epitome of bordering Tongariro Forest, with National Park the next village … and both the famous ‘42 Traverse’ trail, and world-class fly-fishing a short walk away. Facilities include:
•Luxurious West-Wing master bedroom with 4-poster Queen bed
•Gorgeous West-Wing ‘peacock’ bedroom with Double bed
•Beautiful West-Wing ‘triple’ bedroom with Double-Single bunk bed
•Three lovely East-Wing Bedrooms (1 x Queen, and 2 x Doubles)
•Fabulous interconnecting Dorm Bedroom with 4 x Single beds
•Lavish spacious Gatsby-style Lounge
•Outside deck with Finnish sauna cabin, hot-tub jacuzzi, fire-pit & seating
•Stunning West-Wing Kitchen-Dining-Laundry
•Uber cool West-Wing toilet-bathroom, with separate Shower (converted phonebooth)
•Drying Room cupboard
•Gun vault (with ammunition safe)
•A second fully-equipped Kitchen-Dining-Laundry in the East-Wing
•A second Bathroom in the East-Wing with shower and toilet
•Bedding can be included for an 18th person to sleep on the Lounge 3-seater Couch (NB: it is not a sofa-bed, it is a regular settee)
If just going for the weekend, we suggest on the Friday night you sip mulled-wine and toast marshmallows to make s’mores, then on the Saturday night maybe enjoy your own 1920s Agatha Christie Cluedo-style Murder Mystery evening!
