Riverside Retreat Cabin - The ultimate getaway

About 

Our Riverside Retreat Cabin is secluded, peaceful, romantic and revitalising. Escape away with your partner and enjoy the sounds of native birds and the pristine river. This is the ultimate nature retreat and romantic getaway located 10 minutes walk or a 5 minute 4WD ride from Makoura lodge (we can provide transport if required). Makoura Lodge is 2 hours drive from Wellington and 1 hour's scenic drive from Palmerston North.

Our cabin was completed in 2016. Double glazed windows, potbelly fire heating and full insulation makes this retreat a fantastic stay in winter months as well as summer. There are great; swimming holes, fishing spots and walks you can do around the property. The cabin is designed to give you the ultimate getaway surrounded in nature. Fitted with all the necessities so you don't need to spend long packing, just bring your personal items and food, we will take care of the rest.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, at last I had the chance to stop and do nothing. Having no cellphone reception or power to start my laptop was the best thing, it made us sit there and enjoy the beauty of an amazing area. I feel so much clearer in my mind THANK YOU again.
