Heading to Mt Ruapehu for the snow season?
Did you know Awenydd Retreat Bed & Breakfast is just a 2 minute diversion by car from SH39? Make it your half-way stop from Auckland or further north, to revive, soak in a hot spa, enjoy the cozy cottage (2 bedrooms, sleeps 4, self contained) and get an early start the next morning. With less traffic and more daylight, you'll be at the mountain in approx 3 hours to begin your day on the slopes.
It's a long drive to Mt Ruapehu from Auckland and further north makes the journey quite extensive. Not every driver can comfortably drive the distance in one stretch, often in the hours of darkness and rural roads. Check the driving time from your location.
Awenydd Cottage is a self-contained accommodation space which includes: heating, a queen bed and a flat screen TV in both bedrooms, robes, hairdryer, a fully equipped kitchen and pantry essentials, bathroom with shower, generous Kiwi continental breakfast and home baking! We can even arrange a home cooked dinner for you too.
In the main homestead you can enjoy shared hot tubs, indoor lounge with wood fire in winter months, outdoor chiminea (complete with toasting marshmallows), laundry facilities and free onsite parking for a range of vehicles including camper vans.
Adults only. BOOK NOW
