Huka Lodge - Alex Van Heeren Cottage

8 4 4

The Owner’s Cottage sits on an elevated and sunny promontory above the spectacular Waikato River. Virtually completely hidden from view, this secluded retreat enjoys stunning views downstream to the mighty Huka Falls.

A Secluded Retreat Overlooking The Mighty Huka Falls

Four superbly decorated spacious en-suite guest rooms are anchored by a central living room, dining area, kitchen and den. The colour palette is deliberately muted with elegant use of soft cream and caramel hues for the walls and bleached oak wooden parquet floors throughout. This all contributes to an ambience of calm restful relaxation within the Huka Lodge - Owner’s Cottage.

The Cottage displays work by some of New Zealand’s foremost artists – Max Gimblet, Mervyn Taylor, Don Binney, Paul Dibble and Dick Frizell to name a few. The entire retreat is furbished generously with unique pieces chosen for their comfort, beauty and history – like the wonderful 1920s French oak chairs in the living room.

Guest Suites

The en-suite rooms all have super-king size beds, comfortable chairs for lounging and the romance of a fireplace in your bedroom.

Two of the guest suites face the river while the other two enjoy a beautiful private courtyard garden aspect. These gardens also feature one of the magnificent outdoor fireplaces that can be found tucked away in the environs of Huka Lodge.
