The Powder Hut was the perfect place for a quiet weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

The Powder Hut was the perfect place for a quiet weekend away. It was cosy, with a lovely view of the mountain. It made a great base from which to explore all the area has to offer.

It's a cozy and functional cottage that has all that you need and a bit more.

  • 5 of 5

It's a cozy and functional cottage that has all that you need and a bit more. Within walking distance to Ohakune Town Centre and Train Station. Even though there are other units in the compound, everything is laid out in such a way that each unit still maintains its privacy. Great place to serve as a base. :)

Ohakune is a good base for getting to many of the local attractions.

  • 4 of 5

Ohakune is a good base for getting to many of the local attractions. We visited Whakapapa, Mt Ruapehu, Rangatikei River and

Wiaouru on our tour around the Central Volcanic Plateau. Also a few accessible Lord Of The Rings locations. A beautiful region. We could have stayed here a lot longer.
