Everything You Need Is Under One Roof
Accommodation . Bar . Dining Room

We have a large communal lounge area, ideal for relaxing, and catching up. There is a spacious games room, ideal for families with children.

Whether you want a relaxing time away to reconnect with friends or perhaps organise your get-together around an event eg Tongariro Alpine Crossing or biking our cycle ways, Pipers Lodge will compliment your stay, by giving you a memorable time.

Bike Rides in the Area

Old Coach Road: This is a grade 2 mountain bike ride. It takes around an hour and a half - 2 hours. Easy surface to ride on, you don't need major mountain bike skills. Great ride if you haven't been on a bike for a while. The views are spectacular.

Fishers Track: Grade 2 mountain bike ride. Enjoy the steady 2km climb up a gravel slope, and then take in the 17km all downhill blast. Crossing grassy farm lands, and looking out across wide views of rural countryside. Great fun!! Good for all the family.

42nd Traverse: This is a more challenging ride. This is a grade 2-3 ride taking 4-6 hours. Good ride for those who want a bit more of a challenge.

We can organise bike hire if required.
