High Country Cabin is a stylishly decorated cabin in the heart of the Southern Alps on the South Island of New Zealand. Inspired by the Backcountry huts throughout the area, it provides a rustic country-style experience. Situated 15 minutes outside of Twizel in the heart of the Mackenzie, it has direct access to all of the natural amenities that the area is world famous for including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking & tramping, mountain-biking, hunting & fishing among many other activities.
“The cabin was our little base to explore the area and we could have not wished for a more serene environment. The cabin is nestled on a private land with vast mountain views, away from any society noise, yet it is so close to exploring the activities in the area. Coming home to light the fire and relax with a glass of Pinot in the cabin was always the highlight of our day. The communication with Kenny was super easy and we always had a prompt reply. Can’t wait to go back :-)”

“A unique experience in Pukaki!Only a few minutes from dining (Poppie’s Cafe was great) and very convenient to Mt. Cook. Has all the amenities you could need. Good heating for those cool nights, and also an a/c for the warm afternoons. Understandably, due to its unique build, the shower is a bit under-powered and shifted between hot & cold. Bed is quite soft, but provided a good nights sleep. You may want ear plugs for the occasional road noise, but it wasn’t much traffic. Great view of the stars through the sunroof!”

“We had such a wonderful time here! It has absolutely everything you need for exploring the area. Super warm and cozy in the winter, the bed is so comfortable and the whole studio is new and clean. We went to mt cook and Tekapo from here which are both an hour and it was a great base (must do Sealy track in cook and John in Tekapo). Twizel has some cute cafes too and the host was sooooo kind to drive Shane to the auto repair shop when we arrived with a pierced tire. There was a knife in the tire and it was only $30 to repair, didn’t keep us from exploring at all! Thank you so much for your help! I couldn’t recommend this place more :)”
