Ruskin Chalet is a modern Ohakune chalet, situated in the heart of the central plateau.
If you are a family wanting more room, two families or a group of friends wanting to stay together - this is the place for you.
This is a great base for skiing at Turoa, hiking the Tongariro Crossing or biking the Old Coach Road.
Generous bedrooms, an entertainers kitchen, two bathrooms with gas hot water, and Kent fire make this one of the warmest and most comfortable properties in Ohakune.
Our location is in the middle of the action - across the road from a great river walk, and equidistant between the junction night life and the town’s supermarket.
Upstairs and downstairs are generous bedrooms - with configurations to suit most groups.
We have a large drying room for serious drying - room enough for everyone's gear to ensure you are ready for another day of mountain adventuring.
We offer a very well equipped kitchen - congregate with your friends while you cook up a storm. Stereo, Sky TV (Winter only)and DVD will keep the kids happy too in the open plan lounge.
Our dining table seats eight and is perfect for evening get togethers or to play cards or board games.
Biking? - then lock up your gear in our wood shed. This is a great biking base with easy access to the Old Coach Road and the 22 or so other surrounding tracks.
