What a wonderful place. Found this place on 'pets can come too'. Hosts are wonderful: friendly and very very accommodating. The treehouse is a lovely place to stay, with wonderful views looking over the gorge from the tree house and the hot tub. Very accommodating for dogs (fenced courtyard and fenced paddock next door). We did the 3 to 5 hour rafting trip down the Rangitiki gorge (comfortable rapids grades 1-2 only), which was just a fabulous way to spend the day. Rafting, swimming, short hike to a waterfall, lovely picnic lunch, floating down the subdued rapids, having a go at rowing - all made for a fabulous day. Great dinner too. Definitely the best place I've stayed while traveling with my dog.
