Welcome to Glacier Country! Nestled in the heart of the Tai Poutini Westland National Park and only a 7-minute drive from the Franz Josef township, our brand new little cabin in the paddocks offers stunning views of the Southern Alps and ample privacy in a rural setting. Relax after a fun day of hiking and sightseeing while enjoying our spectacular West Coast sunsets, listening to the native birds, stargazing on the deck or simply being lulled by the rain.
This chalet is hand crafted out of native timbers and situated near the bush located next to a beautiful creek. Each chalet is fully self contained with a great deal of privacy. The handcrafted wooden staircase leads to the two bedrooms upstairs. Bathroom, kitchen and livingroom area are downstairs. The Southern Alps are visible from most locations on the property.
