Special Amenities

The Chalet is set on the same High Country farm that also hosts the famous Washpen Falls Adventure Walk... This is a 2 hour loop track offering majestic scenery. You'll go through lush native bush to a volcanic canyon reserve, experience picturesque views across the Canterbury Plains and see sparkling spring-fed creeks and stunning waterfalls. The chalet is located at the very beginning / carpark of the Washpen Falls Adventure Walk & next to the walkway toilets. The walkway could potentially be busy during public holidays / weekends.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The Chalet is well situated to explore all the local region has to offer. Windwhistle is the gateway to the Lake Coleridge Back Country with numerous lakes, walkways, hunting and fishing, horse trekking , scenic drives , heliskiing, mountain biking, jet boating on the famous Rakaia River or play golf at one of the popular courses. Keen skiers will love the fact it's just a 15 minute drive to the Mt Hutt Ski Field access road. A number of other ski fields are also in the region including Mt Olympus , Craigburn , Temple Basin , Porter Heights , Mt Cheeseman and Broken River. We are a one hour drive from Christchurch International Airport and located just off the popular scenic route heading down South to Lake Tekapo, Queenstown making this the perfect Canterbury stop off. It's a good idea to stock up on groceries , although if you want a break from cooking you are spoilt for choice with a variety of dining options in Methven , or treat yourself to breakfast, lunch or dinner at Terrace Downs Resort just a short 10 minute drive.

We loved our stay there, cabin is cosy, beds and bedding are great and loved the fire place and hot tub outside. Surroundings are beautiful with a lovely hike to the washpen falls from the cabin. Look forward to staying again.
Beautiful, cosey and warm. Stayed 2 nights. Weather packed in so couldn't enjoy what the wider area had to offer, however we were more than happy sitting around with the fire going and enjoying the hot tub. Nestled about 2km off the main road, it felt like the middle of no-where which is what we were after. Still an easy drive to the nearest town to grab supplies if needed. Absolutely perfect, couldn't have asked for more. Megan was easy to deal with and extremely accommodating. Will 100% be back.
