Winter Stay Disclaimer:
While we are now taking winter bookings due to demand, we are implementing a policy whereby you can cancel and receive a full refund up to 24 hours prior to the booking. This is because, as we are located in a alpine climate region, we want to allow people to cancel should the weather be bad. Although it is a stunning spot on a crisp winters day, when it is raining or windy, it is not an enjoyable experience and we don’t want people feeling disappointed. Though we provide a biofuel fire inside the tent, it doesn’t produce as much heat as a traditional wood fire, so warm clothes will be needed. We have stocked it up with extra blankets, but we wish to make it clear to everyone who wants to book over the winter months, you will still be staying in a tent and it will not be as warm as a house. Having said that, when there is snow on the mountain, on a sunny winter day, the views are truly breathtaking.
We have designed our tent so that it can accommodate anywhere from 1 – 6 people, making it perfect for groups and families. There are three rooms within the tent, two bedrooms with comfortable queen-sized beds, kitted out with quality linen and bedding. While in the living space a day bed converts into two singles, both with comfortable standard single sized mattresses, linen and bedding.
We have a maximum occupancy of 6 people with no exceptions in this regard.
All bedding, linen, towels, and blankets are provided. As well as environmentally friendly toiletries, including body wash, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, and soap.
The kitchen is fitted out with all utensils and equipment you will need to create wonderful meals. We provide breakfast items that include, bread, farm laid eggs from our own chickens, muesli, butter, peanut butter, vegemite, tea, coffee and farm-fresh milk (this is raw milk straight from our cows, meaning it hasn’t been pasteurized or homogenized. The farm operates under strict health and safety guidelines and we personally drink this milk year-round. However, if raw milk is not to your taste, be sure to bring your own). You will also need to bring any other food necessary for your stay. There is a small café and dairy in Kinloch where you can purchase the basics. However, we recommend a trip to the large supermarkets of Taupo before you arrive.
We can also provide a portable cot and high chair with prior notice.
