Lake Ohau Lodge is nestled against the hills and looks over Lake Ohau, with superb views of the magnificent surrounding mountains. It has a reputation for its delicious high country food, friendly staff and warm hospitality. We offer rooms of four different standards of accommodation ranging from simply furnished to luxury, all ensuite, and great dinner, bed and breakfast packages.
The place can be peaceful and stunningly beautiful or dramatic and wild when the Nor’wester sweeps down the valley. This is New Zealand’s Mackenzie country, tussock farmland and home of the Merino sheep.
In summer this unique wilderness area lends itself to gentle walking or mountain biking, and we are located on the famous Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. In the winter enjoy an open fire and warm and cosy accommodation. The Lodge offers discounted lift passes to Ohau Snow Fields throughout the winter season. After a day’s skiing, soaking in the outdoor spa pools with a Glühwein in your hand is a glorious way to end the day.
Ohau, winter or summer is family friendly and a wonderful location for gathering together with friends or just to get away.
