The best place to stay in Ohakune - the magnificent Station Lodge

We have been returning to Station Lodge since 2012. Our 30+ pax groups always comprise of tertiary students, their chaperone and young family as well as teaching staff and chefs who are all accommodated for onsite for our 4-night stays. Students enjoy the Backpackers Lodge where they have their own space to study, socialise and relax. The Family room off the Backpackers Lodge is a wonderful and spacious family accommodation perfect for our chaperone and their young family to settle in and feel like they are at home with all the conveniences (industrial kitchen, bath, ample bedrooms and cosy lounge-and the wonderful green garden; trampoline and swing).


The teaching staff thoroughly enjoy the chalets and 1-Bedroom units where they are able to take time out to finish book-work and enjoy a cheeky spa or two. The chefs adore the large kitchen in the Backpackers lodge that is set up with cooking utensils, gas tops and large double fridge ...and even the outdoor pizza oven and bbq. Station Lodge is the perfect place to stay as it can accommodate any group-large or small; family or students; couples or singles. Jane and Darren are absolutely exceptional and so hospitable. Their Station Lodge is the perfect home away from home with the added bonus of the awe-inspiring Mt Ruapehu view from all lodge windows. Thanks for having us again.
