Fodor's Review

Tucked in amongst giant kahikatea trees and native forest, and overlooking Little Mt Peel (which isn't so little) this comfortable oregon log lodge provides a haven of peace and quiet. Opened as a hunting and fishing lodge it's a nice getaway if you want to experience the great outdoors without hiking miles up into the hills. There are four bedrooms—two share a bathroom—all looking out to the mountains. You can self-cater, have breakfast provided, or request a fully catered service. Nearby there's rafting, fishing, hunting, horse trekking, hiking, helicopter tours and visits to Mesopotamia Station up in the high country. Available for exclusive bookings only.
