About
Description
Situated within 5 acres of park-like grounds with magnificent views of the mountains, Snowy Waters was once a Nurses Home for staff of the former Waimarino Hospital. Our quiet, quaint, historic timber town is More situated between two National Parks; Tongariro and Whanganui. In summer transport departs daily for the Tongariro Crossing from our doorstep. Other nearby activities include skiing and snowboarding Mt Ruapehu, walking the Tongariro Northern Circuit, jet boating or canoeing to the Bridge to Nowhere, mountain biking on the Mountains to Sea cycle trail, bird watching and trout fishing. We are the perfect halfway stay between Auckland and Wellington. Our setting is private and peaceful yet within easy walking distance of a small supermarket and cafe. Our main guest lounge is a wonderful, tranquil space which opens onto an extensive outdoor entertainment area with BBQ's, an outdoor fireplace and a wood-fired pizza oven. Self-catering facilities are available in our open-plan, rustic themed kitchen, or let us cater for you. In winter cosy fireplaces are lit prior to your arrival while European style central heating warms your room. Both guest lounges feature a 50" TV (with Sports channels). Showers are gas with good pressure and an unlimited water supply. Although our rooms are small, we make up for it with friendly, helpful staff, clean facilities and free WiFi. Outside we have a playground, an outdoor spa pool surrounded by rocks and Palm trees with views of Mt Ruapehu, a pet goat and the Snowy Train. As part of our plan to bring people to our wonderful little community, we are constantly upgrading and improving our 75 year old character building. We are owned and operated by kiwi's who are passionate about supporting rural New Zealand and the many outdoor activities available. Your hosts Sandy, Casey, Terry and Suzanne look forward to welcoming you. Less
