Wanaka, Otago, New Zealand

Mount Iron Cabin is situated in a very private and safe neighbourhood.

Wanaka is famous for it's beautiful scenery and outdoor scene as well as the plethora of top rated cafes and restaurants that are within walking or biking distance of the Cabin. Enjoy a great coffee and food at one of the many cafés and restaurants in town. Visit one of the many international award winning vineyards nearby or the local craft breweries. Head to the artisan market for more locally produced deliciousness.

Known as the Gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park, there is plenty on offer here. Whether you are an active traveller or not, the beauty will astound you.

Mt Iron itself is a roche moutonnee (glacier carved knoll) formed during the ice age and is a popular 6km loop walk accessed from the front door of the Cabin. From the summit you can enjoy 360 degree views of the Pisa Range, Upper Clutha Basin, Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps.

Hi, I’m Megan. After more than a decade guiding on the West Coast of the South Island I now live in Wanaka with my partner Jon and our two children. We enjoy being in the outdoors and have visited many places overseas but our passion is for New Zealand. That is one of the main reasons we built Mount Iron Cabin, so others could also enjoy a little of this spectacular country where Wanaka is a highlight for us. Jon is a builder and craftsman who has dedicated a lot of time and aroha into making Mount Iron Cabin a beautiful space in which to relax and enjoy the warmth that only natural materials can give. It has been crafted by hand and utilises many recycled native timbers and natural organic products.
