We offer a wide range of options at the Mountain House.
Our high season is from November 1 to the end of April where reservations are essential to avoid disappointment. We offer winter rates on certain types of accommodation. Free off-street parking available.
For those of you that want your privacy we have single, double, twin and triple rooms. All of your bedding and towels are provided. There is a heater in each room. These rooms are not ensuite. Toilets and showers are close by and shared with other guests.
|The Shared Rooms|
We are committed to the traditional notion of the backpacker lodge and the trampers hut which is all about shared bunk rooms. All bedding is provided and all these rooms are heated. One of our shared rooms is reserved for women only.
When privacy is important, why not take one of our cozy School Terrace cottage for your group. They are self contained with fully equipped kitchens and all have log fires, with firewood supplied. Bedrooms are heated and all of your bedding and towels are provided. Click here to see the bedding configuration of each cottage.
We have found that most groups like to have their own space and place to get together for dinner and relaxing. We always recommend that groups take one of our buildings to themselves. We can accommodate large groups of up to 60 persons. Email us with your requirements.
Here are a few suggestions that have worked for groups in the past...
- Groups of up to 8 persons - One of our cottages is ideal.
- Groups up to 24 persons - Either of our lodges is ideal. Click Here for the sleeping arrangements in each lodge.
- Groups of over 24 - We can select the combination of our buildings that best suits your requirements.
|Camping and Powered Sites|
We also have limited camping at the Mountain House and we have two powered sites available for vans or campers. Be aware, it is a semi-alpine environment so be prepared! Also there are Kea (mountain parrots) here that can sometimes take an interest in your tent and it's contents. Camping is at your own risk! Please call us to make a booking (Ph. 03 318 9258).
