    Came here for 1 night while on a northland road, very relaxed, chilled and peaceful. Meet 2 other travellers that we ended up following, or been followed on the rest of our trip which was cool. Little far away from shops etc, but that's what...More

    We are happy that enjoyed your stay with us. We think the caves are pretty awesome too.

    We stayed here for two nights on a recent trip around the Northland. Our first night was spent in the triple room (which you can book as a twosome), whilst our second night was spent in one of the double cabins. We absolutely loved it...More

    Thanks for your great review, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay here. The showers are gravity fed from the spring in our forest, so unfortunately the pressure isn't the same as if we were on a town water supply. The water tastes so much...More

    This is a pretty little lodge 15 minutes out of town. It's cozy, the beds are comfortable, and the owners are very nice. Bathrooms are clean and bedrooms are big. It's right next to the caves and they even rent caving gear for $7. You...More

    Many thanks for this good review. We'll tell Muttie the dog that she's had a special mention.

    You only get here by car. The one-way driveway down to the lodge is only for experienced drivers. Current owners only bought the place couple of years ago, are still improving it. Light build house makes you hear almost everything from the neighbouring room. Still...More
