Our little room was well appointed and with nice character touches too. We thought the outdoor shower/bathroom setup was clever and unique and enjoyed the spa pool under the stars. Would recommend but suggest that it is definitely worth pre-booking dinner with Rem if you'd like to eat on site. Our room had no kitchenette which was clear on all bookings etc. We didn't mind running in to Taumarunui for yummy Thai.

My friend and I stayed in the Twin room for two nights whilst doing the Timber Trail. We also booked the use of the house for one night and had the most memorable time there. Rem is an extremely gifted and multitalented host, cook, artist, and story teller. He is also an expert when it comes to advice for or information on the Timber Trail. We felt truly cared for and supported and thoroughly enjoyed his company.

We booked the main house with the two queen rooms. Very comfortable, clean and with character. Full kitchen and laundry and safe storage for bikes. Rem is a great host and very knowledgeable about the trail and best places to eat nearby. The spa was great at the end of a day of riding.

We enjoyed the hospitality and accomodation and food. Added to the timbertrail ride experience. Ongarue is a quiet place with history and character. We stayed in the double and Rem catered our meals. Great.
