We drove up from Stratford for lunch today and were treated to excellent toasted sandwiches and very good coffee along with the fabulous mountain view and the lodge’s Swiss styled charms. Quaint and welcoming.

Had a great time at the Dawson Falls cafe yesterday! Dean and his staff member Kimberley went out of their way to accommodate us and made us feel very welcome. Great coffee and delicious homemade cheese scones and banana bread.

Dawson Falls Mountain lodge offers unique lodge style accommodation on a magnificent site situated on the slopes of Mt Taranaki within the national park. We have 11 rooms that can accommodate up to 27 guests. We ...More offer bed and breakfast, a small cafe, and a set 3-course evening meal. There is no self-catering or BYO (Bring your own beverage) allowed. The lodge is fully licensed and our bar offers a good variety of drinks. Each guest room has been meticulously crafted in a Swiss Alpine style - truly unique. Our two lounges invite to relax and socialise in this safe National Park environment. On colder days, our wood fires keep you warm and cosy. The nicest walks in Egmont National Park start right at our doorstep, with a variety of short walks for everyone to more demanding tramps/climbs for the advanced hikers and climbers. Since 1896 this lodge has been a part of Mt Taranaki and its long history is preserved in our Lodge Book, which is a treasure in itself and keeps you engaged for hours. Enjoy an authentic Alpine experience, here at Dawson Falls Mountain Lodge. Less
