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 high country Cabin is fantastic. It’s the perfect place to stay in the Mackenzie country, surrounded by beautiful views, and amazing mountains. The cabin is decorated impeccably and the little home touches like fresh towels and soaps make it perfect. The decor and wood fire top the whole thing off and the sheep for neighbors. I highly recommend staying here & if you can, book for two or three nights so you can enjoy the area. Thanks so much Kenny, we can’t wait to return.”

“Very nice place. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We were able to see the stars from the backyard! Elaine was nice enough to let us get to the house early so we could put some items in the fridge before driving to Lake Tekapo for the day.”
