My sister and I recently rode the Timber Trail and stayed at the lodge. It was absolutely fantastic. The food was.... AMAZING! Kate and Hadden the lodge managers were so accommodating. Everything you need was right there. We'll definitely be back! Thanks so much.

So glad we could make your stay one to remember unicyclistjoe, it was great to host you both. That deck is such a sun trap, it's great to relax out there on a beanbag after a day of mountain biking. Look forward to seeing you...More

About
Description
Deep in the centre of Aotearoa's North Island, right in the middle of nowhere, is a very special place. The Timber Trail Lodge is set in the middle of a renowned conservation park featuring huge podocarp trees and More rare birds, and is the only on-trail accommodation for the 84km Timber Trail cycle way. The off-grid, full service lodge opened in April 2017, sleeping 50 with a mix of double/twin and triple rooms. Some rooms have shared ablutions, whilst bedrooms in the second wing have en-suite bathrooms. The lodge has been designed so guests can experience sustainability in practice, and leave with a greater appreciation of minimising impacts and protecting natural environments. Guests enjoy healthy, nutritious meals with a focus on tasty, natural ingredients, in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Inclusive packages and group deals available. Less
